Sounds Like San Diego: July 11

Nico Dragon brings their intense stage performances up close and personal at the Griffin on Thursday



    If you've seen Imagine Dragons live in San Diego shows, chances are you've seen Nico Vega open up for them. This L.A. band can capture the audience with their dramatic and soaring vocals and intense stage performances. Ironically, the first time Imagine Dragons ever performed in San Diego, they opened for Nico Vega at the Casbah. While I.D. has taken over the radio waves, Nico Vega has maintained their cool preferring to cater to the discerning music fan, those who don't require a catchy repetitive chorus. Nico Vega performs at the Griffin with Crash Kings. It's certainly going to be a great performance worth checking out.
