Sounds Like San Diego: May 27

The Lumineers head up SDSU's Open Air Theatre

The Lumineers

The weekend is finally here and I don't know about you, but I'm ready to spend some time in the sun, hitting some parks, maybe the waterslides, throwing food on the grill and kicking back hard this weekend. But, of course, the night is my life and I'll be enjoying some music too. Tonight, you can catch the return of the Lumineers, whom I saw just a few years back at Hotel Cafe to dozens of people and who are now playing major venues across the country. Rock legends the Who perform at Valley View Casino Center, and electronic trailblazers Moderat are at the Observatory.
