Young the Giant came to San Diego on Tuesday to perform the first of two sold-out nights at House of Blues.
The show was part of Young the Giant’s current tour in support of their new album, Home Of The Strange. They kicked off their rockinâ€™ set with a pair of songs from that release — â€œJungle Youthâ€ and â€œSomething To Believe In.â€
The crowd really got going and sang along when they played â€œCough Syrup,â€ from Young the Giant’s eponymous 2010 breakout album. The first song during their encore was â€œAmerika,â€ which is the based on the title of Franz Kafkaâ€™s unfinished book of the same name.
Ra Ra Riot served as the night’s opening act.
