The electro/alt-pop superstar was back in town on July 13, only a few months after her last San Diego show (at 91x’s Wrex the Halls) in December of 2018 at Pechanga Arena.

The 17-year-old pop phenomenon has been taking over the world with her captivating ferocity and visionary street style that belies her age. Her debut EP, “Don’t Smile at Me,” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in 2017 -- you know, when she was barely old enough to drive.

There's pretty much nothing she can't do: She signed a modeling contract with Next Models and was listed on Forbes' annual 30 Under 30 in 2018, collaborated with iconic Japanese artist Takashi Murakami on a line of merchandise, and wrote/released a song titled "Come Out and Play" for a popular holiday-themed Apple commercial.

Oh, and by the way: her debut full-length album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” (released on March 29), debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart and reached No. 1 in several other countries around the world.

The new album made Eilish the first artist born in the 2000s to earn at No. 1 album in the U.S. (weird flex but we're here for it), and the youngest female to ever have a No. 1 album in the U.K.

Eilish has collaborated with peers like Khalid and Justin Bieber, while writing and recording her own music (much of it in collaboration with her older brother, Finneas O’Connell -- more on him later).

A self-made artist, she’s cited Lana Del Rey and Tyler, the Creator as influences on both her music and aesthetic, respectively. In a 2017 interview with Paper, she said she looks up to Drake, Earl Sweatshirt, ASAP Rocky and Miguel -- and grew up listening to the Beatles, Green Day and Avril Lavigne.

As expected, she put on an unforgettable show on July 13 -- stabilizer boot and all! (Eilish unfortunately suffered a sprained ankle after falling down the stairs at LA’s Greek Theatre a few days ago.)

As we mentioned earlier, the eldest Eilish sibling opened the show! Known mononymously as Finneas, he's been writing and producing songs (with and without his sister) since he was 12 years old.

While he's been releasing music since 2016, he released eight (!!!) singles last year: "Break My Heart Again," "Heaven," "Life Moves On," "Landmine," "Hollywood Forever," "College," "Luck Pusher," and "Let's Fall in Love for the Night". This year, he's dropped three more: "Claudia," "I Lost a Friend" and "Angel."

A true double-threat, he's also known for his role as Alistair in the Fox TV series "Glee." He's starred in the film "Bad Teacher," had a recurring role on ABC's "Modern Family" and appeared in two episodes of "Aquarius" as well. Acting chops aside -- and after catching him at the SDSU Open Air Theatre show -- we're left wondering: Where's the album, bud?
