Punk Rock vs. Hip-Hop at Tower Bar in City Heights

There aren’t that many cool dives left in San Diego that haven’t been taken over by a bunch of fist-pumpers or hipsters (been around 30th and University lately?), but Tower Bar in City Heights—which had its semi-regular “Punk Rock vs. Hip-Hop” night last Friday—remains one of the few places untouched by North Park- or Downtown-style jackassery. By writing this, I may have just given the secret away, but, for now, it’s worth jumping for joy.
