There’s a huge sold out show at the Observatory, a local band night at the House of Blues, some San Diegans turned New Yorkers visiting the Hideout and so much more!

Tuesday, December 15 – The 1975 – Observatory North Park
This Manchester alternative rock band is currently touring the world and making a pit stop in San Diego. The show is sold out but I’d hit up Craigslist for an extra ticket. Their newest album will be released next year in February. More info.

Pity Sex out of Ann Arbor, Michigan has some new music up their sleeves. They released a new single “What Might Soothe You?” this past fall and have a full length to be released next year called White Hot Moon. See them play with fellow indie rockers Colleen Green and Eskimeaux at the Che! More info.
