Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 4

SoNo Fest to feature Le Chateau and more!

It's been an eventful weekend in San Diego, but it isn't over yet. I was recently asked to make sort of an inventory of San Diego's top talent, and if I were to put that into one lineup, you'd have something that looks a lot like SoNo Fest. (Of course, there'd be like five more stages to allow even more local faves, but we can't be greedy.) To me, this is one of San Diego's most unique community events, where a ticket pays for a handcrafted pottery bowl to sample select chilis and a nice stroll to check out live music -- all of which supports McKinley Elementary. Bit Maps, Le Chateau and many others who hail from the 'hood will be there. By nightfall, Night Moves and the lovely Haley Bonar play the Casbah, John Waters is back for his storytelling and comedy at Belly Up and Mr. Little Jeans is a worthy show at Soda Bar.
