Sounds Like San Diego: September 7

    Coming off Labor Day weekend is always hard. It marks the mental end of summer, kids head back to school, and I don't know about you, but a four day work week always feels a bit overwhelming because the workload doesn't take holidays. Soulful singer-songwriter Justin Nozuka will give you great respite after a long day, or perhaps you want to check out the bluesy garage-punk of The Gories at the Casbah. The Fairmounts have accepted a Tuesday night residency at Eleven, or catch an early singer-songwriter showcase at Soda Bar. Just because the weekend is over and summer is fading doesn't mean the music ever has to stop.
