Top concerts this week in San Diego (June 25-July 1)

Top performances coming to town this week include Dua Lipa, Violent Femmes, Cash Cash and a DJ set from Neon Indian. 

6.25: Violent Femmes 

Vocalist/guitarist Gordon Gano and bassist Brian Ritchie — two of the Femmes’ original three members — keep the iconic Wisconsin indie rock act going these days. 2 Mics & the Truth: Unplugged & Unhinged in America, a 25-song collection of live cuts recorded at radio stations and special appearances, was released last year.

6.27: Slum Village 

T3 and Young RJ continue the legacy of this Detroit hip-hop crew that once featured J Dilla. After last releasing new material in 2016, the band dropped The Lost Scrolls, Vol. 2 in April. It features previously unreleased demos and remixes from their early years.

6.29: Dua Lipa 

The English singer and model was last here in February at the House of Blues. But on the heels of her self-titled debut and singles with Sean Paul, Martin Garrix, Wale and Major Lazer last year, Lipa dropped the April single One Kiss with Calvin Harris in time for the venue upgrade.

6.29: The Go-Go’s

They’re baaaack. And for the first time in six years, all five original members will take the stage together. Maybe having their new musical, Head Over Heels, debut on Broadway brought the band back together.
