Sounds Like San Diego: October 16

Tristan Prettyman is just one of the musical acts to perform on Wednesday at the San Diego Music Awards.

There are plenty of good shows around San Diego on Wednesday, but the only thing this music blogger cares about is the San Diego Music Awards. Realistically, the awards themselves are a sidenote to the party, which is always full of great performances and is a veritable who's who of the local music scene. I'm especially excited to see Tristan Prettyman. Her single "Say Anything" is my guilty pleasure. Not in the sense that I'm embarrassed to love the song but in that it's my cry song. Every time I hear it and sing along, tears pour down my face and I thank my lucky stars that I'm in a healthy and happy relationship and don't relate to the devastating lyrics. Some people cry to Adele, but Tristan is that perfect trigger for me. Hopefully I can keep it together at the awards and see a cohesive and unified San Diego at Humphreys on this special night.
