Sounds Like San Diego: Feb. 15

The number of great shows in SD Friday is staggering -- just see for yourself


There are a ton of great shows in tonight's listings, but instead of giving the rundown, we're going to talk for a minute about the incredible DIY scene in San Diego. There are a lot of peole in this city, who work for very little or even free to encourage successful and cool events. The same people who bring Awesome Fest every year have put together a massive weekend called "Cancelled." Tonight, the event kicks off between Soda Bar and Space. Over the weekend, the fun continues, incorporating Bar Pink and the Office in the daytime and back to Bar Pink and Space at night. The lineups bring all kinds of punk and garage acts, including Mike Krol, who is getting great response about his latest release, "Power Chords." Tickets always sell out in advance of any of their events so make sure you pick up your weekend passes today or you might find yourself watching from the sidewalk.
