Sounds Like San Diego: August 16

Brandi Carlile headlines Humphreys Thursday -- and it's only one of several great concert options

    Brandi Carlile headlines Humphreys Thursday.

    There are some incredible shows in San Diego tonight, so you're going to want to start your weekend on a Thursday. At Humphreys, powerfully strong Brandi Carlile plays the headlining spot, while instrumental classical guitar powerhouse Rodrigo y Gabriela play their amazing blend of flamenco, metal, and rock at the Belly Up. Casbah welcomes North Carolinian alt-country -- or as I like to call them, twang-rockers -- American Aquarium take the stage, and legendary rapper DJ Quik brings the classic jams to the Observatory North Park. For country lovers, Chris Stapleton has seen a meteoric rise in his career and he headlines Mattress Firm Amphitheatre tonight. Parking and ride-sharing to the venue has been a bit dicey this season, so be sure to get there uber-early and be ready to wait your turn out of the lot.
