Sounds Like San Diego: October 12

This weekend is a great one to get out and enjoy the interesting swath of people who flock to Ocean Beach for their annual Oktoberfest. I especially like their stage, because they keep a gap between the stage and the beer garden so that your kiddos can rock out, too. Suzie's Farm has a fun family event with G Burns Jug Band to entertain the crowds. When the sun sets, music abounds, with Houses headlining at Soda Bar, the Loons rocking out the Casbah, and our friends the Frights -- who will also perform on Halloween at our FREE SoundDiego LIVE show -- with a great lineup at the Ken Club. Those are just a few of the many options for your fulfilling and entertaining Saturday night.
