Sounds Like San Diego: May 22

Sunday is jam packed with epic live-music shows -- and we've got the details

It's hard to believe that after this amazing weekend in San Diego that there is still so much fun to be had, but looking at your options today, maybe save your household chores for another day. Today, you can head back up to Solana Beach for the second day of Fiesta Del Sol, though, between you and me, has a much stronger lineup of heavy hitters, or you can day rave at Quartyard for Gorgon City. By nightfall, I couldn't be more excited about Nada Surf playing at the Irenic. The band consistently puts out amazing music with a few years lapsing in between releases, and their latest, "You Know Who You Are," is another great addition to their discography. It's just a shame Beauty Bar isn't around anymore for a post-show dance party with frontman Matthew Caws. Around town, Idlewild hits the Casbah, Royce Rizzy gets busy at Soda Bar, and the revival of the singer/songwriter holds the fort at Belly Up.
