Sounds Like San Diego: May 6

Head to the Casbah to catch the Dwarves closing out the San Diego Tattoo Invitational

San Diego didn't disappoint with this weekend's weather, so if you didn't catch Old Town's Cinco De Mayo festival, you might want to head down today. By night, our friends at ListenSD are celebrating five years at House of Blues with the Desert Daze Caravan and Los Kung Fu Monkeys headline Soda Bar. Keb Mo' is getting down at Belly Up to a sold-out crowd, and Burger Records artist Pink Mexico make an appearance at the Merrow. All of those are awesome choices, but if you didn't get enough music in your face, you might head to the Casbah to catch Dwarves and the Widows, who will be celebrating the close to the San Diego Tattoo Invitational.
