San Diego music is fine: Final summer concerts
It's been a busy week of live music in San Diego.
- A small but spirited crowd braved the elements to see Brazilian legends Os Mutantes at Music Box, on Aug. 20, the night before Tropical Storm Hilary greeted us.
- The bookers at CalCoast Credit Union Open Air Theater ended up with a back-to-back mid-week nights of anthemic folk rock.
- And best of all, '90s alt-rock revivalists Bully, led by Alicia Bognanno, ripped in front of a sold-out crowd at Soda Bar.
What we're watching: San Diego's live music calendar is packed this fall, but before we get there here's a handful of shows this coming week worth circling.
- San Diego's own Drug Hunt, a psychedelic rock band with a post-punk flavor, is headlining a packed bill at Casbah Friday night.
- The same night, Tropa Magica, which fuses cumbia with alternative rock, are down from L.A. for an early show at the Quartyard in East Village.
- Two of OB's finest play in the neighborhood on Saturday: bluesy power trio Band of Gringos is playing at the Seedless Skatepark Warehouse in the afternoon and reggae rock act Half Hour Late is going to fill Winston's at night.
