Early on Saturday night, make your plans to attend Something in the Heart is Never Lost: An Art Show in Memoriam of Cara Mia Ciasulli. Cara Mia passed away earlier this year at the age of 35 and this night of art and live music at Space 4 Art downtown is dedicated to her. Plenty of live music options all over San Diego. Blitzen Trapper hit Porter’s Pub; Strange Talk, The Griswolds and Dr. Seahorse play at the Casbah; local band Reason To Rebel is having their CD release show at Soda Bar with support from Amerikan Bear and Red Wizard, and Twenty One Pilots and Robert Delong play at House of Blues. Club Sabbat takes over both rooms at Numb3rs. I’ll be DJing in the front room with Dark Angel and Severin provides the dark old school in the back room. Grab more info here. Plus, you can get your dance on with Booty Bassment at the Whistle Stop, Dragon Lounge at the Kava Lounge, and Fashion Whore at U-31.
And finally on Sunday, Cults headline an all-ages show at the Irenic. And at the Casbah, its Jello Biafra & the Guantanamo School of Medicine, Death Hymn #9, Tit Wrench and Erleen Nada.
