Things To Do In San Diego: November 8-9, 2012

When I moved into my new space back in May, I never expected to still be living out of boxes in November, but I guess there are a lot of things about November that I didn't expect. I certainly didn't expect to see a heatwave like we did last week, but maybe that's why I'm so excited to pull out my box marked "scarves/gloves/jackets". Last night it started raining and I went out on the bike and it was glorious. Today was the perfect day to be bundled up in pajamas as I caught up on some work. I've been sitting on these listings a couple days, but I just have a funny schedule and have to take advantage of the time I do have whether for shows, working, catching up on my shows, or my bi-weekly 24 hour date when Darren's schedule and mine completely align. We saw Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots last night and I've been specifically asked not to review the show or give any spoilers, but it is really, really great and not at all what I expected. At all. It runs through December 16 and I've mentioned discount tickets, but I also learned that you can buy tickets in the first two rows for only $15 because they're partially obstructed, though it seemed that the people in those seats only had to crane their necks a couple times throughout the show. You don't have to know the Flaming Lips catalog to enjoy the show, but you do have to appreciate musical theatre. I hope you take the time to look through these listings because there are so many great shows this weekend. I haven't gone through my off-venue sites for other events, but hopefully I can update those tonight after Jon Spencer. Friday and Saturday archives are after the jump.
