It’s another sunny day in San Diego and while I was out enjoying it earlier, I’m glad to be back inside. I got a cold earlier this week and I’m still trying to get rid of the little bugger. It’s much easier to deal with sneezes and such when you have tissues close by. Also, it’s supposed to rain again this week. Who knew San Diego actually got weather?

My apologies for being late with this. I checked the music last night and since SD is is low key, there was only a show or two to be seen but nothing super noteworthy. I did say on our Twitter account (@_localmusicnat) last night that I had a surprise and I didn’t lie… Our friends over at the Belly Up hooked us up and I happen to have a pair (or two) of tickets to give away for Lucas Nelson and Promise of the Real with The Tilt on Sept. 22nd, as well as Mother Hips with Nikki Bluhm and the Gramblers on the 23rd.
