Top performances in town this week include Eels, Dwight Yoakam and Loud Luxury.
Helping to close out 2018 with a December show at Parq last year, L.A.-based DJ Julian Scanlan (aka Slushii) gets a venue upsize for his return visit to San Diego. And while Scanlan’s previous stop dovetailed with the release of his sophomore studio album Dream, expect the 22-year-old’s set list to continue drawing heavily from the 16-track collection.

5.10: Todd Terry
Pioneering New York DJ Todd Terry has remixed the likes of Demi Lovato, Daft Punk, Shakira, Usher, Kylie Minogue and many more. Yet despite being old enough to be a father to most of the popular DJs working today, Terry hasn’t stopped producing new music. New singles DJs Gotta Dance More with A-Trak and Figure of Jazz with Junior Sanchez were released last year.
