Concerts You Can’t Miss

One of the worst feelings for us music-lovers is to realize that our favorite band or artist will be having a concert nearby, but we can’t go because the show is sold out. With the dozens of great artists coming to San Diego this year, it would be a shame to miss out. So before you spend all of your money on coffee and your Netflix account, check out these upcoming concerts that will be in San Diego this September and see which artists you would like to experience live.

If you’re into rap but you’re looking for something a little different from the typical songs you hear on the radio, Chance the Rapper might just be the artist for you. With his gravelly voice, unique mashup of genres, and his witty lyrics, Chance the Rapper easily stands out amongst the crowd.

Lindsey Stirling
Violin music is beautiful enough by itself. But mix it with the electronic effects that is Lindsey Stirling’s uniquely orchestrated music, and it’s downright epic. Stirling writes from her heart, and her orchestral/electronic pieces are so emotional, that they do not require words to be understood.
