For two nights, the North Park Music Thing took over San Diego's North Park venues and transformed it into a SxSw Lite. In the daytime, various panels and talks were held on the state of the music industry at the Lafayette Hotel; at night, local bands performed at showcases throughout North Park. It kind of made me wish we had something similar in Orange County. After the jump, check out five awesome San Diego bands we discovered.
