Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 24

If you are Wonderfrontin', make sure you get to the festival early

It has been a wild weekend in San Diego, whether you were navigating the inaugural Wonderfront Festival or just going out on your own with all the shows before we hit the big holiday slowdown. Either way, the fun doesn't have to end this Sunday. If you are Wonderfrontin', be sure to catch the insane lineup for Guitar Legends, the super musica en Espanol with Los Angeles Azules, Tucanes de Tijuana y mas, and make sure you get to the festival early enough to experience the magic of one of my personal favorites, Japanese Breakfast. If you're not participating in the festival, you can catch Turnover and Men I Trust at the Observatory, San Diego fan faves Death Valley Girls and Crocodiles at the Casbah, or experience the massive impact of Chainsmokers at Viejas Arena. So much to do and see, and hopefully you can just kick back this Thanksgiving week and not worry about too-late nights or too-early mornings.
