Sounds Like San Diego: May 31

The Rock & Roll Marathon kicks off a wild Sunday of incredible live music

For some of us, Sunday mornings are for sleeping in, sipping bloody marys, and brunch al fresco, but for hundreds more ambitious than myself, today is a chance to run a half or full marathon for the annual Rock & Roll Marathon. Every mile of the course features a different musical act, and the finish line party at Petco Park, which is free and open to the public, features O.A.R. After that, there's another post-marathon celebration at Quartyard, which is free for runners and only $5 for non-runners. Around town, catch the second day of Fiesta del Sol in Solana Beach, get to the Casbah tonight for The Knocks, or swing by Soda Bar to catch Teenage Bottlerocket.
