Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 1

You're going to want to go to Casbah to see Slothrust if you love the Fxx show "You're the Worst"

Tonight's selection of concerts brings a ton of throwback acts, but I have to be honest, I'm only feeling the Casbah tonight. There's a tv show on Fxx called "You're the Worst," and it's easily one of my favorite shows to catch on Hulu. It has the catchiest opening song, performed by the fun and punchy punk of Slothrust. Of course, there's cool stuff all over -- Jason Isbell performs at Symphony Hall, and our friends, the Widows, headline Soda Bar. If you're heading to Viejas Arena for the Pumpkins, get there early for Metric, and keep clear of the Sports Arena area if you're not holding tickets to Sam Smith. Also, if you're planning on checking out Escorted Trips at the Che, we've been told that parking on campus is free all day Saturday.
