We’re really feeling San Diego concerts this week: Grizzly Business plays Soda Bar, The Roots visit Observatory North Park, and San Diego musicians cover Nick Cave at Space Bar.

Tuesday, July 11

Sports, Yeeks, Modern Me – Soda Bar
Sports is an indie rock band from Ohio. Their most recent release came out in 2015 and it’s called All Of Something. More info.

The Roots – Observatory North Park
The Roots are much more than Jimmy Kimmel’s backing band. Originally from Philadelphia, The Roots are considered one of the greatest hip-hop groups of our time known for their jazz influences and deep musical knowledge. Tickets are a steep $70 but it’s probably worth every penny, especially if you missed their set at the inaugural KAABOO. More info.

A Night Of Nick Cave Songs – Space Bar
If you missed Nick Cave at the Balboa Theatre a couple weeks back, here’s the next best thing: San Diego musicians covering Nick Cave. Expect members of Hexa, Soft Lions, Warsaw, and more covering gothy hits like “In My Arms” and “Red Right Hand.” More info.
