Sounds Like San Diego: May 28

Saturday's live-music offerings are off the charts

It's Memorial Day weekend and no doubt there are a thousand ways to spend your Saturday, including dozens of great shows -- but personally, I like the off-the-beaten-path-type events. So while LED is sold out at Valley View Casino Center and Dillinger Four is sold out at the Casbah, perhaps you should head to Shaper Studios in North Park for an early evening music extravaganza that benefits charity. With Wild Wild Wets, Shady Francos and Garden Echo all performing, this should be a fun show (and since it's a studio, you can probably get away with bringing the kids or BYOB if ya know what I mean.) After that, just walk up the street to catch Le Chateau and others at Bar Pink. Of course, there's stuff all over so check the listings and make tonight a great one.
