Sounds Like San Diego: July 30

Grammy Award-winning Julieta Venegas comes back home

There is pretty much something for everyone on what should be a perfect San Diego Saturday. You've got a couple of beer events with Hess Fest or the San Diego Beer and Music Festival, reggae at the track, or even a free concert with a dash of politics as the Rock Against the TPP concert goes down at Spin. By evening, Weirdos take over the Ken Club, John Meeks celebrates a record release at Soda Bar and Oh Pep! entertains the Casbah. Of course, we're particularly excited for local Julieta Venegas, who performs at the House of Blues tonight and never disappoints, but you've got ample options to make today a pretty worthwhile part of your weekend.
