Sounds Like San Diego: June 18

Cheat the heat Saturday with the Mowgli's at Harrah's

Have you ever tried dating more than one person at a time, thinking you can get away with it, until you're totally caught with everyone in the same place at the same time and you basically have no way out? That's how I feel today. I've been writing here at SoundDiego since our launch in 2010, and this summer we've teamed up with Harrah's Resort Southern California for Summer Splash. Tonight, we have the Mowgli's and Grizzly Business and it's going to be amazing -- now that we have some good weather -- to have great live bands by the pool. If you can get to Valley Center tonight, you should. In fact, book a night and make it a worthy staycation while you enjoy an air-conditioned hotel room. But I also work for the Casbah, where Day Wave (one of my favorite new bands) will be playing, and I work for the Observatory, where there is a super cheap show with the Pharcyde. I'm also the content manager for DoSD, who is hosting a free show at SILO with Rob Crow's Gloomy Place and Systems Officer. On top of all that, I dabble as a doorgirl, so I'll be at Sarah Jarosz at the Irenic. So, I'm caught. I've got all of these musical loves, all of these parts that make my work in music so exciting, and I'm also sad because I can only be in one place at a time. Busted.
