12.17: Thom Yorke

Sold out just mere moments after it went on sale, the Radiohead frontman returns to San Diego to play solo stuff and (we’re guessing) cuts from his October-released soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s remake of the horror film Suspiria.

The legendary industrial act is celebrating a few milestones this year. Not only did iconic front man Al Jourgensen just turn 60, the band’s breakthrough album, The Land of Rape and Honey, has now officially been around for three decades. Ministry also released their 14th studio album in 2018, the 9-track AmeriKKKant. Read PACIFIC’s interview with Jourgensen here.

Calif.-based sibling DJ and production duo Hippie Sabotage (aka Kevin and Jeff Saurer) are perhaps best known for remixing Swedish crooner Tove Lo’s breakthrough hit, Habits (Stay High). The brothers have also released a handful of their own singles this year — I Found You, The Mist, and the three-song Hentai collection.

DJ and production trio Trevor Shawn, Ace Future and Spencer Regan performed as WeAreTreo for years, remixing Drake’s Fake Love and Twenty One Pilots’ Ride as self-proclaimed “surfers by day, DJs by night.” But with Regan out, the L.A.-based duo of Shawn and Future released their first single under the new moniker, Coastin’ (feat. Sammy Johnson)in August.
