BANG BANG PRESENTS

FRIENDSMAS (21+)

Bang Bang is a special place. It felt like only a few days ago that I was in that nightclub, more than slightly inebriated picking up dollars bills from the ground after some rich white dude made it rain from VIP. That was because it was a few days ago. And you know what? It'll probably happen again, so don't miss out. Plus we got the whole family playing, including the Hickies and Hide & Go Freak crew. Come through.

FEATURING THE TRAVELERS CLUB, HICKIES & DRY HUMPS, HIDE & GO FREAK
WHERE: BANG BANG
WHEN: 9PM-2AM

WTVR PRESENTS

WTVR BAZAR

If there's three things I love, it's bazaars, Tijuana and seeing Jackie Mendoza play live. If there's four things you should love, it's those three, plus abiding by my recommendations. Take a trip across the border for a nice day out at WTVR's bazaar, including food trucks, live art and music by some of Tijuana and San Diego's best.

"LEMON GROVE" VIDEO SHOOT

I don't want to say that I had any part in the formulation of this idea whatsoever, but I will say I spoke this into the universe the minute I heard this standout track from Rob $tone's debut and I'm glad as hell that it's actually happening. Spend your Saturday afternoon at the set for undoubtedly the best song ever dedicated to a San Diego neighborhood. It's also directed by Chris Gonzo, so you know the shit's going to be fire.

FEATURING ROB $TONE, MALIK BURGERS
WHERE: NANDO'S TACO SHOP (LEMON GROVE)
WHEN: 12PM
PRICE: FREE

TEC. PRESENTS

X-MAS AFTER PARTY (21+)

If you're anything like me (Mexican), then you know the only thing December 25th means is having to put up with everything being closed, primarily because some people actually find it acceptable to celebrate Christmas on Christmas Day. As a result, I've been googling "Christmas Bars Open" for the past three years and I'm finally glad someones stepping up and making something happen on this barren ass night. Stop by Space Bar in City Heights to catch some heat by Park & Wreck's very own, Tec, a main staple in San Diego's beat scene.

FEATURING TEC WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
WHERE: SPACE BAR
