San Diego Concerts Coming Up this Fall

Kristina Stahl / The Triton

As college students, we are all balling, or attempting to ball, on a budget. While a $200+ festival ticket may not be in your future, fear not: here are the Triton’s Fall Quarter picks for splurge worthy shows for $40 or less in San Diego.


The Japanese House w/ Overcoats
October 11, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $22.50

These dreamy bedroom pop and electronic pop artists, respectively, are both danceable and cathartically emo. 


Bastille w/ Joywave
October 13, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $25.00

It *might* be worth stepping foot on the SDSU campus for Bastille.


Clario w/ beabadoobee, Hello Yello
October 18, 2019. 7 p.m. All ages. Starting at $25.00

Make your TikTok dreams come true. E-boy equipment not included.

Indie and experimental R&B, you can say you saw Choker before he was cool.


Steve Lacy w/ Kari Faux
October 29th, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $30.00

Stylized and energetic indie R&B acts, both dripping in vibes. 


Michael Seyer w/ Paul Cherry, Junior Mesa

It’s like if 80s city pop were lo-fi. Pretty rad.


Yung Heazy w/ Wu Tin
November 7, 2019. 9 p.m. All ages. $10.00

Yung Heazy is pretty well-known in the indie/bedroom pop scene at this point. $10 is an absolute steal for his show. 


Snow Tha Product
November 8, 2019. 7 p.m. All ages. Starts at $25.00

Danceable, funny, uplifting rap and R&B jams. Guaranteed good times.


Two Door Cinema Club w/ Peach Pit
November 8, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $39.50

This trio’s sound helped define early 2000s indie rock, together with Peach Pit, who are carving out a niche in the same sound today. These bands might just make you feel okay.


Sleater Kinney w/ KANIA
November 12, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $37.50

Screechy indie-pop punk trio Sleater Kinney are an iconic fixture of modern rock. Not to be missed.


Two Friends
November 15, 2019. 9 p.m. 21+. $20.78

Two Friends have, in my opinion, the most unexpected fun sampling/mixing. Get ready to dance.


Meg Myers
November 20, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $15.00

Hard hitting synthy alt-rock. It’s okay to cry at a concert if it’s Meg Meyers. 


Turnover w/ Men I Trust, Renata Zeiguer
November 24, 2019. 8 p.m. All Ages. $26.50

Dax
November 27, 2019. 7 p.m. All ages. $20.00

Dax is known for his freestyle, so we’re assuming he’s sick live. 


The Mowgli’s, New Politics, Plain White T’s (Three Dimensional Tour)
November 30, 2019. 7 p.m. All ages. $30.00

Three iconic indie/alt rock bands for the price of one. What more do you want?


Unknown Mortal Orchestra
December 5, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. $27.50

Lo-fi psychedelic rock beats to chill and not study to. Because why not go to a concert right before finals week?


Neon Trees, Local Natives, Shaed, Half Alive w/ White Reaper, Winnetka Bowling League (Not So Silent Night)
December 8, 2019. 3:30 p.m- 10 p.m. All ages. $30-$40.

This is actually an insane deal with fun headliners, if you’re down for seven hours of music. Why would you not be?


Kim Petras
December 8, 2019. 8 p.m. All ages. Starting at $28.50

Dance away the finals stress at an actually interesting EDM/dance pop show. Get tickets now. This will sell out.
