For the first time in 19 years, San Diego post-hardcore legends Drive Like Jehu are returning to the stage. On Sunday, Aug. 31, the group will play a free show at Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park.
The Tree Ring have announced a new album, titled Ten Rivers, that's scheduled for release on Sept. 16. On Sept. 17, the band will play their final live performance—a seated, headlining show at The Irenic.
On Under the Spell of JOY—the band's first for Tee Pee Records—the average song length is between six and seven minutes, and each song features some combination of effects-treated vocals, meaty riffs and wild soloing.
AMSD Concerts is going to make a brief comeback. U-T San Diego reported in May that the venue / concert series would close after 11 years of hosting live music, but the end hasn't arrived just yet, apparently.
