Your Guide To This Week’s San Diego Concerts

This week, San Diego gets heavy with harder hitting concerts from some hard rockin’ bands!

Of course, you’ll be able to find some acts other than metal and these rock-laden groups around town this week, but why would you want to?

The Devil Makes Three – 1/5

Observatory

North Park

Santa Cruz band The Devil Makes Three puts together the best qualities of blues, folk, jazz, ragtime and bluegrass to make a refreshing twist on the Americana sound.

The devil is in the details, and you’ll hear every note in these close quarters. This isn’t a show to miss—it isn’t often you see a band of this magnitude at such an intimate venue.

Damage Inc. – 1/6

House of Blues

Downtown San Diego

A new year can bring all sorts of changes, but isn’t it nice to enjoy some familiar tunes amidst all the change?

Cue Damage Inc., Southern California’s signature tribute band. Sometimes it’s nice to just have your face melted off by some good ol’ metal. Damage Inc. will take care of you.

Godhammered – 1/7

Brick by Brick

Linda Vista

If you missed Damage Inc. at the House of Blues, don’t panic—you’ll be able to get your fill of some metal by bouncing over to Brick by Brick.

With influences such as Pantera, Neurosis, Acacia Strain, Sepultura, Down, Corrosion of Conformity and Living Sacrifice, you can be sure your thirst for some heavy music will be satiated.

Fu Manchu – 1/7

The Casbah

Little Italy

If you haven’t listened to the stoner rock stylings of Fu Manchu, you’re missing out.

Pioneers of the genre, Fu Manchu still bring their fusion of early ‘90s metal and psychedelia into the ‘10s. Settle in for some sludgy nostalgia at the Casbah.

Hannah Yeun and TV Icon – 1/8

Soda Bar

City Heights

Hanna Yeum’s somber, ghostly vocals invoke images of a coven of witches whispering magic spells at midnight. But don’t let that scare you off—her ‘60s vibe makes her more Bewitched than The Craft.

Speaking of T.V. icons, TV Icon also channels the spirit of the ‘60s in their throwback rock ‘n roll.

Check out the scarier side of rock to bring in 2017. Start it out with a scream.
