Sounds Like San Diego: September 12

If you were hoping for a relaxing, lazy weekend, you'll have to think again, because the San Diego Music Thing is back. With panels by day at the Town & Country Hotel and showcases all over town by night, this is going to be a busy but awesome weekend. SoundDiego went in depth with your show picks for the weekend, but I think you should stick to North Park on Friday, with an awesome happy hour at Bar Pink, some killer bands at Seven Grand and U-31, and then be sure to stop by and check out the North Park Theatre (where I happen to work) and let yourself be blown away by the great sightlines, the incredible sound gear and beautiful lighting that are sure to make this your new favorite venue in town.
