Since most of us are all celebrating the passage of Labor Day by doing absolutely no labor, LAist thought it might behoove the readership to be aware of this weekend's events. That way, everyone can be properly hungover Monday morning and enjoy Labor Day the way it was meant to be enjoyed—flat on your back nursing a little hair of the dog.

At the Troubadour, KCRW welcomes perennial LA favorites Minibar, performing with Waz, Zachariah & the Lobos Riders and Kristin Mooney. Doors are at 8:00 PM and tickets are $10.00 advance, $12.00 at the door.

Across town at The Smell, catch indie rockers Get Hustle with Wives, Lion Fever, Jarrett Silberman and Damion Romero. Doors open at 9:00 PM and tickets are $5.00.
