Maximono @ Bang Bang (21+) This Ain't Bristol, Dirtybird, and Cuff artist is making his rounds to San Diego for what's sure to be a experimental night hearing some of the most cutting edge bassline-centric tech house and god knows whatever else hybrid genres - but trust it'll be good. Expect this night to go out with a bang, jam-packed of grooves sure to set off a series of possessed involuntary dance moves. flylo Flying Lotus in 3D @ Observatory North Park (All Ages) All politics aside, FlyLo is a visual experience the die-hards will never pass up.
