If I Were U

Chis Isaak, Big Ups and more San Diego concerts

Weekend, Hurray for the Riff Raff, The Muffs and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
Chris Isaak made an appearance in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, but I've always thought of his music more like the unofficial soundtrack to David Lynch productions.

Melt Banana, Stiff Little Fingers, The Lulls and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
Baltimore's Spank Rock made a splash around 2006 for some highly danceable hip-hop jams with oversexed lyrics.

Blackalicious, Torche, The Adolescents and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
Heems used to be an emcee in the ultra-clever but short-lived group Das Racist, but his solo material shows even more versatility.

If I Were U

Mavis Staples, Soft Lions and more San Diego concerts

The Helio Sequence, Charli XCX, Inspired and the Sleep and other shows we’re stoked about this week

Mavis Staples is a treasure. Whether it's her history of singing with The Staples Singers, or the recent work she's recorded with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, her catalog is rich in soulful, powerful melodies.

If you slept on Open Mike Eagle's 2014 album Dark Comedy, go back and listen to the L.A. rapper's surreal and often hilarious hip-hop jams.

If I Were U

Vic Mensa, Slayer and more San Diego concerts

Vetiver, Head Wound City, Best Coast and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
Chicago emcee Vic Mensa hasn't yet released an album, but if you've heard his house-tinged 2014 single "Down On My Luck," then you know that the dude's going to drop something amazing any day now.

If I Were U

Joey Bada$$, Agalloch and more San Diego concerts

Ceremony, Jonathan Richman, Fool’s Gold and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
Joey Bada$$ is still pretty young, but he's grown a lot as a rapper in the last couple years. His new album B4.DA.$$ heavily recalls the best of the '90s hip-hop renaissance.
