Southern California isn’t shy about having a great crop of shows to attend every week but I think the start of September may have outshined the rest of the year. Hip hop icons on top of festivals and bands who made the early 00’s truly rock. This next week is about to be a wild one. With Ja Rule and Ashanti starting things out. Remember back in the day when they were an inseparable duo on the charts? They’ll be doing all those massive hits, on top of delivering their solo ones as well. Speaking of hits, The Game will be in Orange County playing to an intimate crowd, while a ways away the D.I.Y Music and Fashion Festival will be going down at The Glass House the next night. The week then rounds out with the Aussie boy band – that plays actual instruments – 5 Seconds Of Summer on their music awaited summer tour. If that’s not your scene, then perhaps you’ll want to stay in the OC but head over to Yost Theater for the Make America Rock Again Tour where you can see Trapt, Alien Ant Farm, Crazytown and many, many more from that era.
