Sounds Like San Diego: September 1



    It's another busy Thursday night in San Diego, and you've plenty of great options for music, particularly if you're making a four-day weekend out of Labor Day. The Canadian duo the Handsome Furs bring their emotionally packed electronic music to the Casbah, Melly Frances and the Distilled Spirits bring their lively energy to West Coast Tavern, and Soda Bar and Eleven play host to Pre-Awesome Fest shows with one admission price for both venues. If you're in the mood for some '80s greats, head out to Viejas for the Human League and Men Without Hats, or get some Latin spice with Sergent Garcia up at the Belly Up. Whatever your flavor, you're sure to find it tonight.
