Sounds Like San Diego: May 7

Saturday's a doozy for live music, and there's something for everyone


I'm at home sick so forgive me if I'm not quite as enthusiastic about the weekend as I was yesterday. It's just that looking at all of these amazing things going on in San Diego bums me out a little. So do me a favor and go have some fun for me? You can start of by catching some of the Fiesta Cinco de Mayo festival at Old Town or Gator By The Bay at Spanish Landing. Then as the day turns to night, catch Anamanaguchi at the Irenic, or the Hotline Spring tour with Magic Man and the Griswolds at the Observatory. If those don't suit you, the Wild Fires are at Soda Bar and Manic Hispanic are at the Casbah. I'll be on the mend soon enough, but go out and enjoy it for me, too, won't you?
