Your Guide To This Week’s North County Concerts

Sometimes, it’s just good to dance. This week, North County has acts that’ll keep you moving and grooving into the late hours of the night. You won’t even miss those could-be hours of beauty sleep. Speaking of sleep…

Inspired and the Sleep – 5/26

Pour House


Dream pop band Inspired and the Sleep is back to serenade you with their psychedelic melodies and driving, toe-tapping beats.

Don’t worry—Pour House has a dance floor for you to express yourself as Inspired and the Sleep fills your head with bizarre dreams.

Los Lonely Boys – 5/26

The Belly Up

Solana Beach

Playing what the Los Lonely Boys lovingly refers to as “Texican Rock ‘n Roll,” the trio’s mix of bluesy rock and soul-infused roots continues to endear fans new and old.

The Belly Up’s intimate stage and great sound make this your time to catch the boys live.

Lady Star Blues Band – 5/27

Aztec Brewing Company


If you missed the Lady Star Blues Band at San Diego’s Gator By The Bay festival last weekend, this one’s for you. Sometimes, we do get second chances.

Powerful and soulful female vocals elevate Lady Star Blues Band above your typical rock act. This isn’t one to miss.

The Sleepwalkers – 5/27

Pour House


The Sleepwalkers want “people who like to dance any way they want—we’ll do the rest.”

Fusing together the Latin American music style called Cumbia and rockabilly, The Sleepwalkers play what they call “Cumbiabilly.” And it definitely makes you want to move.

Never fear—Pour House has you covered: there’s a dance floor.

The Boundary Birds – 5/27

Mr. Peabody’s Bar and Grill


Singer/songwriter DeBlois Milledge leads The Boundary Birds with her fresh and breezy country twang.

The band’s five original albums lend a large catalog of rousing tunes, inspired by artists from Etta James to Carol King, to each performance.

The group takes its name from this Charlie Parker quote: “Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.”

Forget your boundaries and join everyone at Mr. Peabody’s.
