Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 16

Mariachi El Bronx usher in night one of the band's holiday special at Casbah Wednesday


Your options for live music are few but mighty Wednesday, as you can hang out with Paul Cannon and friends at the Belly Up, Gilbert Castellanos' Jazz Jam at Panama 66, catch a punk night at Soda Bar with Poison Idea, or Jam Kwest at Winston's. The Office Bar also has another Grande Ole Office night, with locals playing country, honky tonk, folk and more. The big news of the night, however, is that Muse was supposed to be at Valley View Casino Center, but the show has been postponed to Jan. 7. The other big news of the night is that Mariachi El Bronx is sold out at the Casbah, but if you're holding a ticket, remember -- this show is a toy drive. Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the show, and you'll get a download of the night's show emailed to you. Beyond all of that, there are plenty of things to keep your spirits high, so even if you don't catch a show, you can certainly find some fun.
