On the corner of Ola Vista and Aveneda Cabrillo in San Clemente is the little community theater, the Cabrillo Playhouse.It is a small theater with only 66 seats, so you are not far from the stage in any seat. Broadway plays and musicals are performed here about 6 times a year.
Live music 6 nights a week and some pretty good bands. Usually have reggae on FRiday nights. Check the website for schedules.
Or, you can try Gordon James on Fri/Sat nights. They are a bit mellower - classic rock and jazz.
