Sounds Like San Diego: December 7

I already told you this was a music-filled weekend; well, Saturday continues that theme, with great shows all over town. Of course, Jay-Z will certainly fill the Valley View Casino Center, while Fu Manchu rocks the Casbah. My indie pick of the night is Ms Mr at the Soda Bar, which is a makeup show from October, when laryngitis struck the band. Just a heads up; There will only be 50 tickets available at the door, so get there early if you want to get in and aren't already on the will-call list. The Void hosts the Intelligence, which is a pretty good consolation if you get turned away from Soda Bar. If you're looking for a daytime activity, the Vinyl Junkies Record Swap takes place at the Casbah. Along with some unique gift-buying opportunities, local celebs will be spinning their collections including David J of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets.
