Sounds Like San Diego: Oct. 6

Will it be a sermon from Bad Religion, Morrissey at Pechanga Arena or Vivian Girls at Casbah?

Tim Fears

So many shows and so little time. Today's lineup of shows is kind of insane after the weekend we've already had, but the gods of tour routing and booking have spoken, and you've got to make some tough choices. Will it be a sermon from punk intellectuals Bad Religion at Soma or the politically outspokenness of Morrissey at Pechanga Arena? (And where will you park if both lots are full?) Or maybe you're curious about Vivian Girls, who dropped their first record since 2011 and are playing the Casbah? Then you've got Dwarves at Soda Bar, another sold out Angels and Airwaves show at House of Blues and Countryfest up in Del Mar -- and that's just a whole lot of goodness to get into. When are we ever supposed to sleep?
