Don’t miss this week’s top concerts

Top performances in San Diego this week include Raphael Saadiq, Sullivan King, Jesse Marco, Wax Motif, Jacquees, Scarface and Trippie Redd.

1.23: Raphael Saadiq

The Grammy winner, Academy Award nominee, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer released his fifth solo album (and first since 2011), Jimmy Lee, last summer. Named for Saadiq’s brother who died from a heroin overdose, the album features appearances from Kendrick Lamar, actor Daniel J. Watts and film composer Taura Stinson.

1.24: Sullivan King

DJ and producer Sullivan King (aka L.A. musician Keaton Prescott) is not your typical EDM artist. He’s every bit as likely to rip a guitar solo as he is to bring a massive beat drop. The bass-versus-metal maestro released his latest full-length album, Show Some Teeth, last October. It features appearances from SWARM, Rico Act, Kompany, TYNAN and Cayte Lee.

1.26: Scarface

The veteran Houston-based MC (Brad “Scarface” Jordan of both solo and Geto Boys fame) was last in San Diego 10 months ago for a show with Compton rapper/producer DJ Quik. He returns alone this time around, after making it to his hometown’s runoff election as a Houston Chronicle-endorsed candidate for city council.
