Your Guide To This Week’s North County Concerts

There’s too much good stuff in North County this week. Enjoy some sweet sounds after a hard week of celebrating the U.S. You deserve it.

The Thens – 7/6

Pour House


Brought to you by the same minds behind Inspired and the Sleep, The Thens carry out the same psychedelic dream pop traditions that make Inspired, well, an inspired act.

Pour House’s stage lets fans get up-close-and-personal while providing a more than adequate dance floor—and you’re going to want to dance.

Phunky Matters – 7/7

Aztec Brewing Company


If blues and brews whet your appetite—they sound like a match made in heaven to us—Phunky Matters at Aztec Brewing Company was made-to-order just for you.

Come enjoy some suds and sounds after a hard week of partying in red, white and blue. You deserve it.

Taken By Canadians – 7/8

Pour House


The psychedelic alt-country rockers Taken By Canadians are taking over Pour House. Their motives are altruistic: they just want you to spend your Saturday movin’ and groovin’. What heroes.

Band of Gringos – 7/8

Belly Up

Solana Beach

This Ocean Beach trio plays rock reminiscent of the ‘60s and ‘70s with enough jams to keep the audience on their toes—both literally and figuratively.

With vocals similar to Southern Rock at its most plaintive, this is rock ‘n’ roll with soul. Come hear for yourself.

Jim and Sam – 7/8

Laurel House Concerts


You may have been lucky enough to attend a show at Laurel House in the past. If you’ve never had the honor, you’re in for a treat—Jim and Sam are the perfect folksy duo for your first trip to Laurel House. You’ll feel as if you’re in Laurel Canyon in the ‘60s.

Get as private a show as they come in a residential house in the Fire Mountain area of Oceanside.
