9.17: The Mountain Goats

The Mountain Goats, aka lo-fi musician and novelist John Darnielle, released their/his 17th studio album, In League With Dragons, in April.

@ House of Blues,

9.18: Durand Jones & The Indications

Time for redemption! Tickets for their show at the Casbah in March sold out mere days after going on sale. Then, the Indiana-based soul singer and his rock-solid backing band came back in June – but only for a short opening set with Rebelution. Thankfully Jones and Co. are set to return once again, still touring on their sophomore album, March’s American Love Call.

@ Belly Up,

9.18: Bob Weir and Wolf Bros

Just like his buddy John Mayer, Bob Weir returns to San Diego after playing here last year with Dead & Company. This time, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted co-founder of the Grateful Dead returns with the Wolf Bros, aka drummer Jay Lane and musician, super-producer and Blue Note boss Don Was.

Although the Puerto Rican singer’s worldwide hit Despacito was already two years old, Fonsi still included it (both versions) on his 10th studio album, Vida, which was released in February.

9.21: Keys N Krates

Toronto’s DJ/electronic/percussion trio of David Matisse, Adam Tune and Jr. Flo released their all-instrumental latest album, A Beat Tape for Your Friends, in July. It comes on the heels of last year’s Cura, a more traditional album for the trio, released on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records.

@ Spin,

9.21: San Holo

Dutch DJ Sander van Dijck played a sold-out show at Observatory North Park in April and returns for the far cozier confines of Bassmnt.

9.21: Tijuana Panthers

The Tijuana Panthers aren’t actually from Tijuana. And for the record, they’re not panthers, either. But the Long Beach pop-punk trio did just release an album, the 14-track Carpet Denim, in July on Innovative Leisure Records.

9.22: Jake Peavy & Friends

The World Series champion and Triple Crown-winning pitcher brings a few MLB buddies to Solana Beach to tell stories before his band takes the stage – all to benefit the Jake Peavy Foundation.
