Your Guide To This Week’s North County Concerts

Album releases, international rockers, old favorites in new outfits—oh, my! Plus a prodigy and some musicians on a mission? We’re going to try to squeeze them all in—you probably should too.

The Schizophonics, Hollywood Sinners, Tightwads – 7/13

Stag & Lion Pub and Grille


What a lineup.

San Diego veterans and high-energy rock ‘n’ roll group The Schizophonics, a garage-rock band from Toledo, Spain that sins like the stars in Beverly Hills and a local fuzzed-out band that comprises talented musicians pilfered from other local bands—this is one for the books.

You better be there—we know we’ll make it.

Anthony ‘Fallbrook Kid’ Cullins – 7/14

Pour House


Go listen to that video again. No, no—we’ll wait. Pretty good, right? Those are some sweet, sweet guitar sounds.

Now, check this: that guitarist is 16 years old.

The ‘Kid’ in Anthony Cullins’ moniker is literal—who knew? Definitely not us when we listened to that. Come hear this prodigy play Pour House. Normally, he wouldn’t be allowed inside a bar, but they’re making an exception.

See what talent like this gets you? Entry.

Jesse Lee (of The Paragraphs) and Saguaro – 7/14

Stag & Lion Pub and Grille


You’re in for a treat—Jesse from The Paragraphs is unleashing some solo work for your enjoyment.

The North Coast Symphony Orchestra – 7/15
