There are some heavy hitters in San Diego this Friday night. Lana Del Rey skyrocketed after her album debut and while she's been away for a hot minute, tonight's show at Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre is certain to be something full of drama and those special flourishes only she can provide. Meanwhile, I've been super into the Japanese House so I cannot wait to see the show at the Observatory North Park with the great Overcoats opening the show. Our pals in the Schizophonics celebrate an album release at the Casbah, Auz Fontaine play Soda Bar, and Logic headlines Viejas Arena. If you happen to be catching Tower of Power at Humphreys, get there early to catch local Marie Haddad wow the crowd in the opening slot.
