Sounds Like San Diego: May 9

Saturday is jam-packed with music events, but none is more special than Bummerfest, which is happening at the Irenic. Organizer Jordan Krimston (and full disclosure, my intern) is only a junior in high school but put together an event that would put a lot of local event producers to shame. Benefitting two charities, the bands he has assembled are about as diverse as they come, even nudging Pinback's Rob Crow to perform, despite recently declaring an end to performing on his Facebook page. This is an all-ages event, and besides all the music, there will be raffles and art and food and a general cool vibe. Sounds like a perfect Saturday to me.
