ListenSD’s Valentine is always music 😉 💖 This week we LOVE the idea of going to You’re Going To Hate This Fest, Mickey Avalon, and Dorothy. We’re also giving away tickets to Mickey Avalon at House of Blues! Follow our Instagram to win.

Tuesday, February 13

Killswitch Engage, Anthrax – House of Blues San Diego
Metalcore band Killswitch Engage first rose to prominence with their 2004 album, The End of Heartache. They’ll play with NYC-based metal band, Anthrax. More info.

Thursday, February 15

Lana Del Rey, Kali Uchi – Valley View Casino
Recent press coverage of Lana has mostly been about her dispute with Radiohead. (They’re claiming Lana’s song “Get Free” is a little too similar to “Creep.”) Despite this, we’re sure plenty of fans will flock to Valley View for Lana Del Rey’s cinematic dreamy pop. More info.

Mickey Avalon & Dirt Nasty – House of Blues San Diego
Micky Avalon’s rap music has often focused on drug use–something he’s struggled with. His self-released album, Teardrops On My Tombstone, dropped last year. More info.
