This week’s top concerts in San Diego (Feb. 11-17)


Top concerts this week include Shelia E., Lil Jon, Panic! At The Disco and Illenium.

2.15: The Marias

The bilingual L.A.-based psychedelic/soul/lounge quintet released their second EP, Superclean, Vol. II, in September. Dreamer Boy and Vanessa Zamora open the show.

@ The Irenic,

2.15: Sheila E.

The percussionist, singer and longtime Prince collaborator released her latest album, Iconic: Message 4 America, in 2017. It features a collaboration with George Clinton on his iconic One Nation Under A Groove, as well as a cover of the Beatles classic Come Together, featuring Ringo Starr and The Revolution.

@ Sycuan,

2.15: Lee Foss

The Chicago-based Foss co-founded the Hot Creations label with Welsh DJ Jamie Jones and the pair play together in the electro-house group Hot Natured. Last in town playing a set for CRSSD After Dark, Foss and Eli Brown released the single Freak You Right in October.

@ Spin,

2.15: Lil Jon

Ok, ok. Yes. It seems like the DJ, producer and Grammy-winning King of Crunk is here every eight weeks. (Psst. That’s because he is.) But it’s hard to argue with dude’s ability to lead a party. His latest single, December’s All I Really Want For Christmas (feat. Kool-Aid Man), is a perfect example. It’s nearly impossible to find a holiday jam that bumps harder than that one.
