Summer guide

Where to take your friends with pets this summer

Take four-legged friends to many restaurants, breweries and paddleboarding out on the bay

By Jeff Terich

Local musicians weigh in on the Rolling Stones

A San Diegan perspective on the rock ‘n’ roll legends

By Jeff Terich
On May 24, the Rolling Stones will perform at Petco Park. This will no doubt be one of the biggest concerts of the year in San Diego, but it also raises the question of whether a band that's been performing for more than 50 years still has what it takes.

Ex Hex work hard, play hard

Washington trio hold their power pop to a high standard

By Jeff Terich
On Ex Hex’s debut album Rips, released last year on Merge Records, you won’t find a single note out of place. Each of its 12 tracks is concise and streamlined (not a single one pushing the four-minute mark), and there are almost no sounds on the record that weren’t made by guitar, bass, drums or human voice.

Read my feature this week on Washington, D.C. trio Ex Hex, fronted by Mary Timony, formerly of Helium. They play power-pop and punk with a reverence for hooks and big melodies. Warning: You'll have their songs in your head all week.

If I Were U

Elvis Perkins, Rhiannon Giddens and more San Diego concerts

D.O.A., Bit Maps, Dead Meadow and other shows we’re stoked about this week

By Jeff Terich
I first caught wind of Elvis Perkins' intricate and melancholy indie folk back in 2007, but I'll admit I haven't really kept up with his output.
