San Diego Shows–Tuesday, April 20
PLAN A: Bonobo, Yppah @ The Casbah. Aww, snap! It’s 4/20, ya’ll, and you want to hear something that goes well with that bomb Kush you just picked up at the dispensary? (I know who reads this paper. I’ve seen our ads.) Skip the ubiquitous reggae show and check out Ninja Tune legend Bonobo (above). The guy’s been perfecting, dissecting and reassembling his own style of down-tempo electronica for more than a decade, and his new Black Sands might be his most progressive and accessible album yet. BACKUP PLAN: Barrington Levy, Redman @ House of Blues.
OTHER COOL STUFF:
Koffin Kats, Hardfall Hearts, Embalmers, The Frighteners @ Brick by Brick.
Listen on Mute, Methlabs, Sean Con @ Radio Room.
Mystic Roots Band, Shoreline Rootz, Hazmatt, Aquille, Megan Combs, DJ Leif, DJ Man Cat @ Belly Up.
“Too Cool For Karaoke” @ Ruby Room.
DJ Paul Preciado @ Tin Can Ale House.
“Friends Chill” game night @ Whistle Stop.
