Top concerts this week in San Diego (June 3-9)


Top performances coming to town this week include R3hab, MadeinTYO, Rufus Wainwright and Bad Religion.

6.6: Father John Misty + Jason Isbell

Billed as a co-headlining tour, this night actually features three great acts. In addition to the idiosyncratic former Fleet Foxes drummer and the Grammy-winning ex-Drive-By Trucker, 21-year-old English singer/songwriter Jade Bird is also set to play. Her self-titled debut album was released in April.

@ Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre,

6.7: Party Favor

Party Favor (aka L.A.-based DJ Dylan Ragland) loves San Diego. He was here on New Year’s Eve, and then back again as recently as April. That was also the month Ragland released his debut full-length album, Layers. The 11-track collection features collaborations with GTA, A$AP Ferg, Rich The Kid, graves, Juicy J and more.


6.8: R3hab

The Dutch House DJ and producer R3HAB (aka Fadil El Ghoul) released his sophomore album, The Wave, last year. He’s kept things rolling in 2019 with a handful of new singles, including This Is How We Party with Icona Pop, All Around The World (La La La) with A Touch of Class, and Don’t Give Up On Me with Andy Grammar.

6.8: MadeinTYO

Atlanta-bred, L.A.-based rapper MadeinTYO (aka Malcolm Davis) released his debut album, Sincerely, Tokyo, last October and made his first San Diego appearance at the Music Box in February. He heads to OMNIA after appearing on recent singles from Boombox Cartel, Vintage Lee and Yung Felix, as well as dropping one of his own – last month’s Chucky Cheese.

After a bit of time off, English duo Bondax (Adam Kaye and George Townsend) returned last year with the 10-track Revolve. The album features collaborations with Andreya Triana, Duckwrth, Aquilo, Daniel Alexander and more. Luxxury, aka DJ Blake Robin, released his latest single, Another Lifetime (feat. Scavenger Hunt) in April.

Returning to the Belly Up just over a year from last playing there, the composer and piano man continues on his All These Poses Anniversary Tour, which celebrates both the 20th anniversary of his self-titled debut and the release of 2001 sophomore breakthrough album, Poses.

6.9: Bad Religion

The L.A.-based punk vets are preparing to hit their 40th (!) anniversary next year and released their 17th studio album, Age of Unreason, last month. They’ll also be playing this special show commemorating the 20th anniversary of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game.
