Happy Sunday! It’s a long weekend for most people (Happy Memorial Day!) and it’s been a sunny and lazy one at that. I just finished eating some horrible food (I’m blaming my healthy eating habits this week. Moderation, right?) and am currently enjoying the activity of doing nothing. I’m sure that will change soon enough so I will enjoy this while I can. I suggest you do the same. And get out to some awesome shows this week! I’m looking forward to X-Fest most of all.

It’s another day in paradise. The sun is out, it’s warm but not hot, and the birds are making their own chirpy music. Yep, it’s a hard life here in San Diego. After all my outings this past month, I’m taking it easy this week. I found out I’m not 21 anymore and able to be out every night and fully functional the next day. This old girl needs some R&R but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out this week. We have some great shows including; Atomic Tom at Lestats, The Burning of Rome at Soda Bar, The New Kinetics at Tin Can Alehouse, and Martin Sexton at The Belly Up. Get out there!

And Happy Monday Evening to you all. I know this is a bit late but I’m just finishing up my very last finals week and celebrating graduation from college. That might have confused you a bit… Point being, I’m in my very last finals week so it’s been a bit crazy on my end. Let’s get down to the good stuff though. Looks like an excellent jam packed week ahead of us! Thursday and Saturday are the nights to be out and about. I wish there were more of me so I could get to everything. Alas, teleportation is not yet available and it would take too long to clone myself…
Also, we best not forget The Silent Comedy, Dirty Sweet, etc at the North Park Theater on Friday night. That is a must see show!
