Aria, Doom X Doom, Tarrah Aroonsakool, Jorge Donate, etc.) and DJ sets by quite literally the cities best, a Thursday night with us is easily the best way to start your weekend. / Shameless plug over.

BEHIND THE WALLS: PRISON ART EXHIBITION
"A prison art show where you will be taken in a blink of an eye to another world. Come join us for a night of amazing art work done by prisoners... their art done in a place where materials are scarce or next to impossible to find, where art is highly respected and valued, where inhumane conditions, misuse of power by prison staff, cruel & unusual punishments and prison violence act as inspiration for some of the most beautiful artwork ever seen, soaked with pain, heartache, sadness, anger, hope and much more." - (Source)
WHERE: MESHEEKA ART GALLERY
PRICE: $9 ADULTS / $3 KIDS (DONATION)
BLACK CAT BAR PRESENTS
BENEFIT FOR ANDERS
WITH GARY WILSON (21+)
Anders Larsson is a San Diego events organizer and also a backing drummer for countless local bands throughout the years. Gaining a reputation for his support to the city, the city is now giving it back following two struggles with open heart surgery in 2017. As a benefit show, the Black Cat produced event will feature experimental rock pioneer Gary Wilson, along with many other acts to raise money for Larsson's cause. Come through, listen to some legends play and have your money go towards a community staple.
FEATURING GARY WILSON, BEEHIVE & THE BARRACUDAS, DOC HAMMER, WESTSIDE INFLECTION
WHERE: BLACK CAT BAR
Without much explanation needed, it's practically a given that anything organized by our buds at 3192 is a guaranteed good time. With the talented people at Roma Rosa Studios taking over the space, promises of art, love, fun, toys and all things beautiful are made, including cool installations and art pieces by the studio's own. The event begins at 6pm with a soft close at 10pm, which usually means you can probably stick around after and drink a beer or four until someone yells at you to get out. Always a good time.
FEATURING ART BY HATE PASTED, GARRAS DE PERRO, DOG DUST

P O C A R I S W E A T +PLUS! (21+)
It's amazing to think that San Diego would have a place you can listen to vaporwave outside the internet. It's actually just amazing to think that vaporwave could exist outside the internet in general. In this way, Umenos, otherwise known as DJ Master Hand, is truly an innovator. Bringing you P o c a r i S w e a t +PLUS!, a night of vaporwave, future funk and j-disco, Umenos curates one of the most unique dance parties in the city, with this particular event featuring a special guest DJ set by the mysterious HI-AF-YO.
