Sounds Like San Diego: September 7

Kolars bring their endless energy to Blonde on Thursday night

There was once Lemon Sun, Rob Kolar's raucous band that played many times in San Diego. Then he and his sister joined forces for He's My Brother, She's My Sister. Then, he married tap-dancing percussionist Lauren Brown, and now they're Kolars. They always put on a great, lively show and with the way Blonde has been killing it lately, get there early so it doesn't sell out. Meanwhile, Canadian lovelies Tops bring their lo-fi punkiness to Casbah, the Hooten Hallers bring the barn-stompers to Soda Bar, and legendary songwriter Tom Brousseau has an album release at the new Java Joe's location in Old Town.
