Sounds Like San Diego: May 5

Rosemary Bystrak

It's no secret that over here at SoundDiego, we love Bostich+Fussible. Tonight, celebrate Cinco de Mayo as they bring their unique blend of Norteno and electronic beats to 4th & B. Just expect to be prepared for a late night. If that doesn't suit your fancy, there are other, smaller Cinco de Mayo celebrations to be had, including the Latin Jazz of Otro Mundo at West Coast Tavern and the awesome covers performed by MEX over at Riviera. There are plenty of touring acts in town, too, including the Pipettes, Josh Kelley, the Displaced and Dirty Vegas, so there's no shortage of fun to be had tonight. Just do me one little favor: Make sure to take a cab or designate a driver tonight.
