Sounds Like San Diego: March 17

Give the luck of the Irish to your ears on St. Paddy's with Downs Family and more around town

If you're looking for green beer this St. Patrick's Day, I can't help you. In my opinion, you're doing it wrong. If, however, you're looking for some great music to get you in the spirit, there are certainly some options, like catching the Downs Family for a late show at the Casbah. Joined with Quel Bordel and Lexington Field in the Atari Lounge, this is definitely the way St. Paddy's is meant to be celebrated. Or skip the shamrocks altogether and catch Badabing at Soda Bar, party with DJ Ikah Love at the Hideout or even check out Local Brews, Local Grooves at House of Blues. I do have to say, I'm slightly intrigued by Prince of the River Dance at Sycamore Den, and with their great menu of beers and craft cocktails, perhaps that is the best way to give a nod to old St. Patrick.
