In San Diego, the Music Never Stops



    I feel so torn. It's about to be Sunday night and I know how hard it is to get out when you have to wake up to your day job on Monday, but between David Dondero at the Casbah and Lyon Crowns with my new favorite L.A. band, the Whiskey Saints, over at El Dorado, I don't know how you choose. Plus, there are all kinds of other great shows tonight, so, yeah, seriously: Don't sit at home tonight. Get out. Support the music you love. Or the music I love. Or, in the case of David Dondero, the music that Conor Oberst loves. Just get off the couch. Go out. Before you know it, the holidays will be here and you won't have any options. Take it while you can.
