Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 3

San Diego is finally having some moderate summer weather -- in the fall -- but it means you can get out and comfortably enjoy PB Fest, Japan Fair, Oktoberfest or any of a number of events on Saturday and still have plenty of time for music in the evening, including the Lonely Wild at Soda Bar, metal mariachi band Metalachi at the Casbah or Thievery Corporation at the Belly Up. The Gaslamp Killer Experience is canceled at the Observatory, but you can still dance to any number of DJs throughout San Diego instead. It's the first weekend of October, and you should certainly do all you can to live it to the fullest.
