I am loving this weekend. It's kinda like the last chill time before we really kick into holiday craziness. Get out and enjoy a live show tonight as the White Buffalo returns to the Observatory, or catch the intensity of Fu Manchu playing their second night at the Casbah. Soda Bar welcomes the jazztastic chill stylings of Proxima Parada from San Luis Obispo, while the Merrow hosts One Inch Punch. Whatever you choose, it's gonna be a good Saturday night in San Diego.
