Tycho at North Park Theatre

Tycho at North Park Theatre

By: David Lopez de Arenosa Last Tuesday, North Park Theatre hosted the amazing Tycho, and his awe-inspiring visuals. If you haven’t had the chance to see him live yet then you better catch him next time around because this isn’t just a show, it’s an experience. The whole thing kind of reminds me of ‘Soarin’ Over California’, the simulation ride at Disney’s California Adventure Park. In the ride, you basically sit in a rollercoaster seat that hovers over an enormous panoramic […]

Bonobo at House of Blues

Bonobo at House of Blues

By: David Lopez de Arenosa Last Wednesday, Simon Green, the British musician, producer and DJ publicly known as Bonobo, played a DJ set at the House of Blues to a sold out crowd of EDM enthusiasts. Now first off it should be said that most of us here at ListenSD have a bias towards actual live bands versus DJ’s, and that’s not to say that there isn’t a place for them in the concert calendar, but to pay money to […]

Run The Jewels: “RTJ2″ Album Review

Run The Jewels: “RTJ2″ Album Review

Artist: Run the Jewels Title: RTJ2 Label: Mass Appeal Release Date: October 27, 2014 By: Dennis Moon When veteran MC Killer Mike first worked with rapper/producer extraordinaire El-P on 2012’s R.A.P. Music, he knew, “I was supposed to be rapping on El-P beats for the rest of my career.” The fiery chemistry present in those first sessions didn’t immediately result in the partnership of the lethal aggro-rap kingpins we know today as Run the Jewels. In the following weeks, Mike […]

Alt-J at SOMA

Alt-J at SOMA

By: Amanda Martinek All-ages shows at SOMA were always reserved in my mind as sweaty punk dens with black eye-linered teens hurling their bodies in pits, off the stage, at each other’s faces, etc. I used to sigh when I saw a band I liked booked at this venue, grimacing at the thought of getting trapped next to all these sweaty teenagers. And yes, this thought crossed my mind when I saw Alt-J was playing at SOMA. SOMA, of all […]

Exclusive Interview with RÜFÜS DU SOL at Belly Up Tavern

By: David Lopez Last week we caught up with Jon and James from RÜFÜS DU SOL before their amazing set at the Belly Up. We talked about everything from plans for their new album to bronzed pecks jiggling in the sun…. The Australian 3-piece has been tearing it up on their USA tour supporting their new album Atlas, out on Columbia records. Their sound is a mix of danceable indie and deep electronic, with a twist of summertime good vibes and tropical […]

Moon Block Party Recap

Moon Block Party Recap

By: Ty Velasques Ain’t no party like a Moon Block Party cause a Moon Block Party won’t stop! With the onslaught of phenomenal artists for the festival at the Pomona Fairplex Saturday, there was no shortage of fun to be had. Unfortunately, the Thursday before we received some devastating news. Leah the drummer of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club would not be performing because of a rare condition that was affecting the fluid in her spinal column and brain. Alas, the […]

Washed Out at North Park Theatre

Washed Out at North Park Theatre

By: David Lopez de Arenosa Last Thursday, Washed Out played a stellar show at the North Park Theatre, supporting the release of their second studio album Paracosm. The crowd was put into a daze as the blurry vocals and enveloping synths took control of the room, the steady dance-beat driven by the live drums and bass guitar keeping everyone moving the whole time. Known for pioneering the ‘Chillwave’ genre, their music feels like a warm bath of sunlight on a […]

Chromeo at Soma

Chromeo at Soma

By: Becky Foreman The lights dim in the already-packed venue, and then you hear it: “Chrom-e-oh, oh-ohhh”. (Think the Wizard of Oz monkey-chant meets 80’s-esque funk-rock). Their INTRO has begun! The transition into their first full song, Night by Night, blends seamlessly and so begins the dance party. Dave 1 and P-Thugg make up the duo that is Chromeo, and they’ve brought the funk to San Diego this Wednesday night. In an all-ages venue that can be hard to fill, […]
