Our Cheeto in Chief made last week extremely stressful for many. Indulge in a San Diego concert to take the edge off, at least temporarily. Run the Jewels will play the Observatory, Dream Burglar plays their first show, and Communist Daughter will be at the Soda Bar.

Monday, January 30

Run the Jewels, The Gaslamp Killer, Gangsta Boo, Nick Hook, Cuz – Observatory North Park
SOLD OUT! 91X presents this killer show featuring some of the best in hip-hop right now. Run the Jewels is probably the perfect group to experience if you’re bummed out about politics. Check CityBeat’s rundown of Run the Jewels’ best politically charged songs. More info.
