K Flay 7.21.18 Tim Fears (23)

I was bummed to have missed the Hives earlier this year partially because I've never seen them live, but also because I really wanted to catch Bleached. Fortunately they're back at the Casbah for the first time in three years and the lead single off their latest release, "Hard To Kill," is so good and might be a little reminiscent of the Go-Gos or Bananarama if you love that summery sound. Meanwhile, T.S.O.L. get rowdy at Soda Bar, the Robert Cray Band return to the Belly Up, and Secret Samarai play Seaport Sessions. On top of all that, San Diego loves K. Flay and she's back at the Observatory North Park with super solid openers Houses and Your Smith, so if you're holding tickets to this one, do yourself a favor and do not miss the openers!!
