Sounds Like San Diego: September 6

Cat Power heads up an incredible night of live music in San Diego Sunday, Sept. 6

Look, San Diego: I am as excited about Labor Day weekend as you are, and I understand for a lot of people, this is the last hurrah before going back to school (or being responsible for children who do), but can we get it together? We can have a good time without being obnoxious; we should be able to enjoy music without being ruining everyone else's experience, and we should have our heads above water to know we shouldn't be out on the roads drinking and driving. Be save, turn it down a notch, and have a great Sunday night. Cat Power and Willy Mason are sure to be amazing at the Belly Up, and Ducktails is the side project of Real Estate's Matt Mondanile and they're really good and super buzzy at the moment. Awesome Fest 9 wraps up their final day and Weezer closes down the season of Del Mar concerts after the races. There are tons of ways to have fun tonight -- just stay classy, San Diego.
