Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 4

Head to Tower Bar for Two Cow Garage's Micah Schnabel on Labor Day

We hope everyone gets to enjoy Labor Day even if our weather this weekend hasn't been ideal. As usual on a holiday, several venues like the Casbah, Music Box, Belly Up and Observatory are dark tonight, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy some great live music. At Tower Bar, Micah Schnabel of Two Cow Garage performs. The Ohio-based musician plays folky punk in the vein of Drag the River or Lucero. Joined by locals Johnny Wagon (of Behind the Wagon) and Michael Kelly, this is a perfect matinee show, and you can still be home in time for plenty of sleep before the shortened work week's demands throw you back into real life. Meanwhile, Soda Bar hosts pop-punk with San Jose's Stickup Kid, the Merrow has a local lineup with Second Cousins and sexy soulful crooner Jesse Ray Smith plays De Oro Mining Company.
