Sounds Like San Diego: May 29

If you're like us, your long weekend's just hitting its live-music stride

Let's just agree that for Memorial Day weekend, we'll make Monday our day of rest. There's so much fun stuff going on that you're not going to want to miss it. If you're looking for pool parties, the Lafayette Hotel, Andaz, and Hotel Solamar all have good options for you. By nightfall, LED is sold out again at Valley View Casino Center but if that's your thing, Bang Bang, Omnia and Bassmnt have what you're looking for. On the music side of things, Brett Dennen is at the Belly Up, Giuda is at Soda Bar, and Mellowdrone's bassist returns to the Casbah with his project, Big Black Delta.
