Sounds Like San Diego: Nov. 12

The Rex Orange County tour skipped San Diego last time, so when tickets were announced for two dates at the Observatory, it was no surprise they sold out immediately. His catchy "Loving Is Easy" permeated the satellite stations first, then terrestrial picked it up, and even Keuning, who played his first solo show last week, covered ROC in his encore. I suspect it will be interesting for those only familiar with the one hit, but if you've heard any of his extended sessions or sets, you know the whole show will be worth your while. If you didn't snag a ticket, you have some great options with Tacocat and Black Belt Eagle Scout at the Casbah, singer/songwriter Jesse Dayton at Soda Bar and Blitzen Trapper at Belly Up with a 10-year anniversary celebration of "Furr."
