6.10: Jennifer Lopez
Only the fourth time she’s hit the road for an extended period of time, Jenny from the Block heads to San Diego for the North American leg of her It’s My Party Tour. Lopez continues to juggle music with her TV and film career, currently appearing on NBC’s World of Dance and starring (alongside Cardi B, Constance Wu and Julia Stiles) in the feature film Hustlers, set for release in September.

6.12: Plague Vendor
By Night, the L.A.-based punk quartet’s third album set for release this month, had super-producer John Congleton at the helm and it shows. A solid synthesis of the band’s feral on-stage energy and expansion into new sounds, By Night is the band’s new high-water mark.

6.14: Toby Keith
Ok, Fairgoers, it’s time to grab your cowboy hats and red Solo cups. The bearded singer hasn’t released an album of original material since 2015, but his 2017 compilation album, The Bus Songs, did feature two new tracks – Sh***y Golfer and Wacky Tobaccy.

6.14: Oh Sees
If you don’t already have tickets to John Dwyer and Co.’s seemingly annual visit to Solana Beach, you’re out of luck. This show has been sold out for weeks. But you can pick up a copy of the garage punk foursome’s 21st studio album, Smote Reverser, which was released last August.
@ Belly Up, bellyup.com
Miami-based DJ and OMNIA regular John Borger has remixed everyone from Marshmello and Morgan Page to Ciara and Ariana Grande. He released his Dear Me EP last year and has put out the remixes to Make Me Yours with Zack Martino, as well as new single Leave with Jordyn Jones, so far in 2019.

The legendary 78-year-old singer, decorated soldier of the British Invasion, and “Eggman” of The Beatles’ I Am The Walrus returns to San Diego with the band that started his career.

Eric Rachmany, the Santa Barbara pop-reggae quintet’s lead singer, was last here for a solo show in December. Now the band is back on the road together and has a solid lineup of support acts with them, including funk/soul throwbacks Durand Jones & The Indications.

6.15: Smokey Robinson
The Motown legend, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy Living Legend Award-winner, and Kennedy Center Honoree is hands-down the very best reason to head to the San Diego County Fair this year.
