Sounds LIke San Diego: Aug. 7, 2015

thievery 1 9

It was a few years since saw Thievery Corporation, but as headliners at Oysterfest this summer, it was clear they have embraced more styles and genres of music over the years, moving beyond just the trip-hop label they seemed to have invented -- or at least perfected. They definitely knew how to engage their audience and kept the festival going about a half-hour longer than it was supposed to be, so you can probably count on more of the same when they play at the track after the final race on Friday. As summer comes to a close, this is probably your best bet for music under a clear evening sky. Around town, you can catch the Muffs at the Casbah, the Palace Ballroom come out of hiding for a headlining show at Soda Bar, and Super Diamond rock the Belly Up.
