I think Kasey Anderson and his Honkies hit mostly on acoustical blues, and it’s fine fare, but they got one song just dripping with swank ooze. Check out “The Wrong Light” from this year’s Heart of a Dog. I can’t not mention that that’s Uncle Joe’s Big Ol’ Andrew McKeag slinging that nasty ax. They’re at Bar Pink... The rest of your hump-night highlights have psych-rock’s Acid Mother’s Pikacyu and Makato shredding the Tin Can...country skrunk Wayne Hancock at Shakedown with the Cactus Jacks...and from Bogotá, Colombia, dub-hop hits Bomba Estéreo turn up at the Loft at UCSD.
