Sounds Like San Diego: May 9

Superstar Rihanna makes a rescheduled "Anti" tour stop in San Diego on Monday.

I'm going to open my mind a little bit and try to understand that when Rihanna comes to town, it's a big deal to a lot of people. The pop princess is all over the charts -- and blaring in every Uber ride I take -- so there has to be something there. Last week I had lunch with my friend's niece, a student at SDSU, and she was glowing after seeing Rihanna's show at The Forum in L.A. So I get it, and also, I don't. For those of you in my position, head to catch the amazing singer/songwriter Daniel Martin Moore at Soda Bar, or catch locals Mrs. Henry lead Anti-Monday League at the Casbah, or dance to the growing popularity of Ceremony Nights at the Merrow, or head to the Office for another Three One G night.
