Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 25

Sebadoh close out Adams Avenue Street Fair

Courtesy Riot Act

I'm not gonna lie ... It was a little bit toasty on Adams Avenue, but there was a nice breeze, great music and plenty of food and drinks to keep you from being parched. Head back today for amazing bands, including Sebadoh (OMG)! It's gonna be fun; just find yourself a wide brimmed hat or a parasol, and you'll be all set. The festival wraps at seven, so you can make it to Tegan & Sara if you were lucky enough to buy tickets in advance, or check out the stunning music of Delta Rae at Music Box. If you're up for an adventure, the Mekons are playing a special show at A Ship in the Woods, the not-so-secret artist enclave in Escondido, or catch Luke Sweeney at Soda Bar. For a bit of an industry jam, head to Whistle Stop where a bunch of your favorite locals will be performing Nick Cave jams. Hard to believe you can have all of this on a Sunday, but it's happening, so don't miss out on all of the fun.
