    Sounds Like San Diego: July 13

    Billie Eilish headlines Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre on Saturday, July 13.

    There's a lot of daytime fun to be had with the Pride parade and festival, Over the Line, the Imperial Beach Sun & Sea festival and a free all-afternoon show at Casbah, besides just being an amazing place to live and spend our days, but the star today is, without a doubt, Billie Eilish. The 17-year-old is the biggest name in music in the last couple years, and if you're not in the know, you don't have teens or tweens in your life. Every show she's played in San Diego has sold out, and she pretty much upstaged the headliners of last year's Wrex the Halls. It's hard to say what makes her the 'it' girl, but it's definitely a unique brand of self-awareness and self-deprecation, a relatable insecurity and simultaneous confidence, and that made tonight's Billie Eilish show sell out in a matter of minutes when tickets went on sale months ago. If you're still looking for nighttime fun, the Irenic has a double release party with Retra and Splavender, the music of Harry Potter hits the Embarcadero and the Loons go retro at Soda Bar.
