    Beck headlines North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 20.

    Today's Comic-Con events nearly outnumber our music event options, but you should be able to work it out to do a little of both. Far away from the convention center, Beck and Cage the Elephant lead a stellar lineup along with Spoon and Starcrawler that makes an amazing top to bottom bill at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre. For some local flair, Mrs. Henry plays the Casbah and Slabatory presents Cigar at Soda Bar. There's another free Bird Park show featuring the Young Lions Jazz Conservancy and Betamaxx rocks the party covers at Belly Up. No doubt there are dozens of events to sort through today and tonight, but there aren't many weekends like this throughout the year so live it up and sleep it off on Sunday.
