    SZA and Kendrick Lamar perform at Mattress Firm Amphitheatre on Sunday, May 13.

    It has been a busy weekend, but it is going to be a pretty amazing Sunday of music if you're up for it. At Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, Top Dawg Entertainment brings their label roster, which includes SZA, Schoolboy Q and, of course, Pulitzer Prize-winner Kendrick Lamar, whose "Damn" was awarded for being "a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism." At the Observatory, Scottish indie-rockers Franz Ferdinand return to town for a sold-out show, Canadian rockers Born Ruffians return to the Casbah for the first time in a few years, and you'll want to bundle up for a chilly night for Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay.
