Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 4/14-4/20

Well, Coachella weekend 1 is over and I saw a slew of photos from it on my Facebook feed. However, Coachella is coming to us this week because the bands need something to do between weekends, right? So if you didn’t get tickets to Coachella this year, don’t worry because we have the likes of Cage the Elephant, Broken Bells, City and Color, Mogwai, Bonobo, Broken Bells, Bryan Ferry, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Bear Hands here to play some shows. If you’re anti-Coachella and that establishment, don’t fret. There is still a lot of great non-Coachella related bands to see like Semi Precious Weapons, Rags and Ribbons, and The Midnight Pine. So, chose you’re own adventure this week. You’re guaranteed a good time.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 5/28-6/3

Happy Sunday! It’s a long weekend for most people (Happy Memorial Day!) and it’s been a sunny and lazy one at that. I just finished eating some horrible food (I’m blaming my healthy eating habits this week. Moderation, right?) and am currently enjoying the activity of doing nothing. I’m sure that will change soon enough so I will enjoy this while I can. I suggest you do the same. And get out to some awesome shows this week! I’m looking forward to X-Fest most of all.
