With tomorrow being Labor Day, today you get a super deluxe Sunday Funday. For day events, head to the Casbah to catch some of the best local music photographers of San Diego who've been capturing moments for decades. If a marathon day show is what you're looking for, check out Bar Pink for bands like Super Buffet, Downs Family and the Touchies. Of course, people are super excited about Ice Cube at the track today, too. By nightfall, there are plenty of shows and dance parties to fall into before you enjoy a lazy Monday holiday.
