Call him T-Money, Mr. Mazee or just Tim Mays, the Casbah owner takes the helm as he acts as one of the music selectors for another Jivewire.
It's Labor Day weekend, so while I hope you're out enjoying San Diego weather with a BBQ with friends and family, there's also plenty going on tonight to keep you up past your bedtime. Hopefully you don't have to get up Monday morning, so you can enjoy some of the party-time festivities around town. The Casbah has its usual pre-holiday Jivewire dance party, there's an About the Music show up at the Belly Up, and there's plenty of music and DJs around town making sure you can make the most of your Sunday.
