Sounds Like San Diego: October 17

HIpsters, partiers and indie-rock enthusiasts should rejoice: There are so many shows Thursday for you to choose from that my boss actually offered me a day off. He said it would be easy to lure all of you to bands like F---ed Up at the Casbah or Helado Negro (translation: Black Ice) at Soda Bar or even the super awesome Yacht show at 207 at the Hard Rock Hotel. I don't have to mention the sold-out Jimmy Buffet show, right? I mean, we've all experienced our cheeseburger in paradise, but new music beats nostalgia, right? So, yeah, even on a day off, I can't resist telling you that you should experience and love some of the smaller shows. You just might find me at the Radar Brothers at Bar Pink, and that will be as awesome a night as I can hope for.
