Things To Do In San Diego: March 21, 2011

I'm back from South By Southwest and it was an incredible week. It was exhausting, but also inspiring, eye-opening, and full of surprises. There are no breaks, however, and many of the bands that played in Austin are circling our way and this week is packed with incredible shows, so if you weren't in Texas, enjoy the benefit of the festival bands coming to you.

Without the convenience of something like 6th Street in San Diego, you might have to just pick one a night, but believe me, the bands coming through were some of the top buzzed about bands at the festival, so be sure to check them out while you can. My rough plan for the week is to catch The Soundtrack of Our Lives at Belly Up, then race down for Boats at Soda Bar, catch Foster The People on Tuesday at the Belly Up, then get to Tin Can for O'Death. On Wednesday, I'll probably be at the Casbah all night, then attempt to catch Dom at Soda Bar, and on Thursday I'll hop between West Coast Tavern for Jesse, Bar Pink for CHAPPO, and if time allows, catch Parson Red Heads at Tin Can. Phew. That is a helluva week.
