Sounds Like San Diego: September 4

Shady Francos head up a revitalized Che Cafe Friday

Shady Francos SoundDiego LIVE (7)
John Audley

With news this week that UCSD is going to foot the bill for Che Cafe's modifications and cancel their eviction, there is a whole lot of reason to celebrate. Head up to the legendary spot tonight to catch one of our favorites, Shady Francos. Meanwhile in CIty Heights, Awesome Fest is in full effect. As far as I know, you have to have pre-purchased a wrist band for the weekend to get into any of the shows, but this is one of the most fun weekend events you'll ever find in San Diego, so get yourself one of those wristbands! The Casbah will be bumpin' with DaM-Funk, Paul Oakenfold closes out Friday night concerts at the track, and One Drop get irie at the Belly Up.
