Here's a look at some of the best music stories this week in the San Diego media:
The UT profiles this weekend’s biggest shows, including the odd coupling of Peter Frampton and B.B. King at the Civic Theatre on Sunday. George Varga asks: Who exactly should be headlining this show? It’s a good question.
He also looks at a pair of controversial performers in town this weekend – Lil’ Wayne playing the America’s Most Wanted Music Festival at Sleep Train Ampitheatre and Courtney Love at the Belly Up on Sunday night. Which act is the bigger train wreck? Judge for yourself.
CityBeat’s Jeff Terich profiles psychedelic quartet Baroness, which almost had the band torn apart by one freakish accident last year. They play the Casbah next weekend.
The Reader looks at Dark Globe, the next big thing in San Diego that never was. The Average Joe band with the Syd Barrett-influenced name tells Ken Leighton how they just wanted to play, man. They get their chance at The Void next weekend.
