Sounds Like San Diego: May 14

Conor Oberst plays the Observatory on Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day, so why not take your super cool mom to a super cool show? Gator by the Bay wraps with its final day at Spanish Landing while Quartyard offers a Mother's Day Beatles Brunch. By evening, you've got plenty of options, including several in the Americana genre with Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes playing the Observatory and Twin Forks, the Americana project of Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba, playing an all ages show at the Irenic. If you're going to that one, get there early to catch Dan Layus, former frontman for Augustana. River Oaks dazzle at the Voodoo Room of the House of Blues and Train play Mattress Firm Amphitheatre. Once you put mom to bed, catch Alex Dezen of the Damnwells at Soda Bar, All Them Witches at Casbah, or actor Creed Batton from the Office for a night of comedy and music at the Belly Up.
