Although it’s a short Labor-Day week, there’s no lack of boogey-inducing music to get you through to the next days off. Happy Birthday is rolling through with a free show tonight at Brooklyn Bowl. Think Beach Boys meet the Dirty Projectors. Then The Glasslands has got a pretty mean Wednesday night line-up with, among others, the ever-jovial Video Daughters (no one sings the Tri-State Area blues like they do). You know the deal, nothing’s more than $5.
