I don't know who Miguel thinks he is taking one of the most popular names worldwide and dropping a last name, but he must've been around long before the age of Google or maybe he would've thought better of it. Regardless, the LA-born singer/songwriter expertly mixes R&B, soul, electronic and pop elements that garner comparisons to artists like Maxwell and Prince. Tonight, see how he holds up at the Open Air Theatre at SDSU. Around town, Gringo Star headline Casbah, Blacks Beach Boys play Soda Bar and Dirty Pennies play Bar Pink.
