Enanitos Verdes – House of Blues San Diego
This rock band formed in Argentina in the late 70s. Their name more or less translates to “little green dwarfs” or “little green men.” Before you see their show, check out the House of Blues Restaurant & Bar. Read our review for a preview of the delicious delta-inspired menu! More info.

Friday, May 5

La Diabla, Thee Commons, Sleepwalker – Casbah
Got plans for Cinco de Mayo? If so, cancel them, then head to this Casbah show featuring Burger Records band Thee Commons. More info.

Saturday, May 6

Diet Cig, Lisa Prank – The Irenic
Diet Cig plays cute indie rock reminiscent of garage rock from the 90s. Seattle based Lisa Prank will open with her lo-fi riffs and adorable lyrics. More info.

Sunday, May 7

Flaming Lips, Klangstof – Observatory North Park
We love the new Flaming Lips song “There Should Be Unicorns.” Not only is relevant for the time–everyone is going cray over the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino–but it’s so catchy you’ll have it stuck in your head for daysss! Check out the rest of their new songs on their recently released Oczy Mlody. More info.
