Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 1

Brockhampton call themselves a boy band, but they're much more than that

Ashlan Grey
I'm starting to feel my age. When I think I'm hip to what the kids are into, something new comes along and I'm like, "Um, when did this happen?" For example, on a satellite station I listen to, this band Brockhampton has been popping up as a new act to follow. Then, I see they're playing the massive Valley View Casino Center and realize that sometimes I'm just really out of the loop. Anyway, they're a "boy band" originally from Texas -- so maybe I don't feel so bad about not knowing after all -- but they're blowing up enough to play Valley View Casino Center. All that aside, you can find me at the Casbah for the second night of post-rock instrumentalists El Ten Eleven, but you've got an interesting option with Metropolitan Klezmer at Museum of Making Music, a fun option with surfy Rally Club at Bar Pink and a classic option with Mock Orange at Soda Bar.
