Sounds Like San Diego: April 30

Birdy Bardot
Birdy Bardot

I'll kick things off by saying that Saturday's shows are pretty great, but the Casbah has everyone beat with a reunion of Buckfast Superbee and Furious IV. But let's talk about your Saturday afternoon, because there's a lot going on. This is the first day of the 32nd Artwalk in Little Italy. Plenty of your favorite local musicians will be playing, and the art is always stunning. Meanwhile, Adams Avenue Unplugged is happening in Normal Heights and Kensington, so you can stroll between cafes, shops and restaurants all turning into music venues. The new guys almost on the block, Depot Springs Beer Company, who are about to open up in La Mesa, are showing their goodwill and neighborhood appreciation at Harry Griffen Park Amphitheatre, and thats where you can catch our friends in Birdy Bardot, the Ordeal, and more. Like I said, tons of fun stuff going on all over town.
