    Cold War Kids kick off the Del Mar Racetrack 2016 concert series on Friday, July 22.

    I've been a little Con-centric this week because I'm such a nerd, but that's not all that San Diego has to offer. With the Del Mar Racetrack celebrating opening day just a week ago, the Summer Concert Series is now in full effect and kicking the whole thing off is one of our favorites, Cold War Kids. It was clear from their first show here at the Casbah that they would do massive things, and we like to think of them as honorary locals. The concerts are free with paid track admission as long as you arrive before the final race. Around San Diego, Japanese stoner-rockers Boris celebrate 10 years of their album "Pink," by performing it in full at the Casbah; Blink-182 plays a sold-out show at Viejas arena; Archons come out of a long hiatus with a show at Tower Bar; and of course, there are a million Con-related events all over downtown.
