Sounds Like San Diego: Sept. 16

If you don't have Kaaboo tickets, you're definitely going to want to head to Casbah for Foxing

I'm not a big fan of pop music in general, but I have to admit that I loved the Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift beef and all of their diss tracks back and forth. Tonight, Perry headlines the final night of Kaaboo, and she's a dynamic performer who loves a big production, so you know whatever she has in her pocket is going to be lit. Be sure to catch local gal Elise Trouw demonstrate her looping and mashup prowess, the very excellent Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors, and of course, Mr. Robert Plant. Those of us without festival tickets can head to the Casbah for Foxing and Kississippi, go check out the experimental sounds of Oxbow or catch Ghostface Killa and Raekwon at Observatory.
