Things to do in San Diego from Dec. 1 through Dec. 8

Is it just us, or is December Nights super hip this year? Food Trucks. An iPhone app. Events editor Carissa Casares is impressed, and she says you should ride your bike to this year's holiday fest so you can enjoy the thing without having to worry about parking. December Nights is happening in Balboa Park Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3-4. 

Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then is a hard movie for music editor Peter Holslin to explain, and not because he's some sort of one-trick pony who can only write about bands. The documentary is odd, in a good way, and he says you just have to see it to believe it. Peter thinks you'll like both the film's whimsical characters and the live music that will be played at the screening, which is happening at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5.---

Space for Art is holding a holiday shindig and art show this week. Artists Judit Hersko and Lea Dennis will be the featured artists and Carissa says both their work is perfect for the winter season. You'll just have to listen to the podcast to find out how and why. The Space for Art celebration includes a Handmade Holiday Pop-Up Shop featuring goods by local crafters, open studios by the Space for Art artists and music by local musicians including John Meeks, the rad guy who kindly provided us with the music for this week's podcast, and others. The event is happening from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4.

Now, push that play button.

Still not convinced that you have time to listen to our little podcast? Peter literally says “Wu-Tang Clan is indeed nothing to fuck with,” which is pretty much worth listening to on its own.  The Clan is doing a reunion tour and Peter gives you the down-low on that. Wu-Tang Clan plays at 4th & B on Dec. 4.

Press play to listen
