Your Guide To This Week’s San Diego Concerts
There are some heavy hitters entering the San Diego scene. From Southern rock to hip hop, Future House to pop punk, genre-defining acts are gracing Southern California with their presences. Don’t miss them.
Ghostface Killah – 3/10
Downtown San Diego
Here’s your chance to see a member of the Wu-Tang Clan right here in San Diego.
Taken from the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing, Ghostface Killah’s name serves a dual purpose: separating his stage persona from his personal one and announcing that he kills.
Come join the most rhythmic slaughter you’ll ever witness at the House of Blues.
Plain White Ts – 3/10
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone unaware of the Plain White Ts’ twice-Grammy-nominated, 2007 song “Hey There Delilah.”
But the band isn’t a one-show pony—the tracks “1234” and “Rhythm of Love” are both certified platinum and the group’s album American Nights dropped last year.
Catch up with these pop punk crooners at Casino Pauma.
Tchami – 3/10
French house music producer Tchami is the originator of the term “Future House” and has helped pioneer the changing landscape of techno.
Tchami debuted his EP and single “After Life” on his Confession label last year. Dressed like a vicar in promo photos, he may have a theme going on here.
The Marshall Tucker Band – 3/11
Since the ‘70s, The Marshall Tucker Band has been a purveyor of bluesy Southern rock. The band’s line-up may have changed, but the tunes and the sound sure haven’t.
Come experience some rock from down south and shake up your Western sensibilities.
Japandroids – 3/11
The title of Japandroids’ Near To The Wild Heart Of Life comes from a line in James Joyce’s A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man.
Like an audio novel of its own, Near To The Wild Heart Of Life offers two loose narratives: its A and B sides. When taken together, the two form an overarching story.
Come get literary with pop punk Japandroids at the Music Box—a place for stories.
