Sounds Like San Diego: Dec. 10

Run the Jewels headline the Observatory for a second year in a row

I am not gonna lie, I am super bummed to be missing Run the Jewels at the Observatory tonight. Their show at the same venue in 2016 was one of the best of the year, and Killer Mike's messaging feels more poignant now than ever, but sometimes you just can't do it all, and I'll have to sit this one out. But we can't all just chill in a stupor, because there's some face melting to be done at Casbah with Death Eyes, Agnostic Front at Soda Bar, and Desert Suns at Tower Bar. So, all is not lost this Sunday evening, but it's too bad RTJ didn't make it a two-night stand, because both would still sell out in a heartbeat.
