Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 27

Will it be the Creepy Creeps at the Casbah or Pinback at the Lafayette Hotel?

Ryan Cowen
So it's the de facto night to celebrate Halloween, and there are tons of events out there to enjoy. By day, head to Sherman Heights, Ray Street or the San Diego Zoo. A little later, Noah Kahan plays a sold-out show at the Irenic, and later still, you have some decisions to make. Will it be the Creepy Creeps at the Casbah or Pinback at the Lafayette Hotel? Will it be the Reverend Payton's Big Damn Band at Soda Bar or Super Buffet at Bar Pink? There's also Wckd Village downtown and Nightmare on Normal Street in Hillcrest if you're just looking for Halloween revelry. You have lots of choices tonight, so don't be shy about dressing up and get out and have some fun.
