Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 15

Kaaboo heads into its third festival day with Mumford & Sons

It has been an insanely hot weekend in San Diego, so if you opt for the Founder's Day Festival in Old Town or the Train Song Festival in Old Poway Park, sunscreen up, stay hydrated and leave your pups at home. Kaaboo heads into its third festival day with Mumford & Sons, a band I've loved since their first US show at the Troubadour many moons ago, but to be honest, I'm gonna guess it's Duran Duran whose performance gets the most watching. This evening, you can catch live shows like Ex Hex at the Casbah, Gutter Demons at Soda Bar and Grayscale at the House of Blues Voodoo Room.
