I thought after this big busy weekend that Sunday would be a day of rest, but that's just not in the cards when there's this much great music in town. Bastille, whose debut a few years ago rapidly shot them into rock stardom, play at the Open Air Theatre while trip-hop pioneers Morcheeba play a sold out show at the Belly Up. There's a super cool event presented by UCSD's ArtPower with Choir! Choir! Choir! performing at Border Field State Park. If I understood correctly, there will be musicians on both sides of the border, bridging the imaginary and literal divide between San Diego and Tijuana. Daytrip play the Casbah, Brick + Mortar are at Soda Bar and Mexican legend Lila Downs performs at Balboa Theatre.
