Jamming Up the Debt Ceiling

Thursday 11
“Clap Your Hands,” Australian diva Sia’s at House of Blues behind last year’s dance-pop chart-topper We Are Born, a surprisingly upbeat collection for the former Zero 7 vocalist. Sia says she’s purging all that childhood Lauper/Madonna. Good for her.... That Ugly American from Austin, Texas, singer-songwriter Bob Schneider will be at Belly Up behind this year’s easy-listener A Perfect Day. “Road dog” Bob’s got a solid core of followers for his instant appeal to folk-rock fans. In baseball parlance, he’s got all the tools. With like-minded locals Little Hurricane blowing in first, dig this double bill.... Nashville blues cat Keb’ Mo’ dropped a new disc last week, The Reflection, his 13th proper, though first with such a ringing R&B bent. So get set to swing out, soul sister, when Keb’ hits the stage at Humphrey’s by the Bay.... Ramones trib Hey Ho! Let’s Go! turns it up to eleven at Eleven with throwback punks the Last Years and the Accoutrements.... Hard-rockers Kill Devil Hill feature drummer Vinny Appice of Black Sabbath. Appice says the quartet cross-pollinates Sabbath with Alice in Chains and Zeppelin. They’ll be at Bay Park rock spot Brick by Brick with SD melodic-metal hedds Sledd.... And there will be a Devastating Karate demo out at RT’s Longboard in P.B. The L.A. band informs me, “Last weekend we refused to stop jamming until the debt ceiling was raised.” I can’t condone their economic policies, but any band that swings between Ween and Paul Simon is okay by me. “Kodachrome!”

Friday 12
Hot on the hip-hop tip Friday night, club crullers, as Nipsey Hussle hits 4th&B...Snoop D-o-double-g’s at Harrahs in the hills...and Afroman rocks the mic at Brick by Brick....

Daikaiju slay Soda Bar Friday night

Soda Bar draws a draught of head-high surf, as Alabama kabuki rockers Daikaiju — “Premium action heroes deliver most high rocket music! Special reverb skill combo for full impact!” — Zombie Surf Camp, the Razorblades, and Secret Samurai drop in on the Normal Heights hot spot.... Stickin’ around Uptown, you’ve got them “girls with grungy guitars” (sandiegoreader.com/music/) the Glossines out at Tower Bar with Regression and Los Sweepers...some Pussy Galore action at Whistle Stop, as that warm leatherette Robin Roth spins ’round Jeremy Toback’s new joint Chop Love Carry Fire and Street of Little Girls...and “Zach’s Huge 40th Birthday Party” at Til-Two, a Mid-century mod affair (think Mad Men dudes in sharkskin suits and dames in cocktail dresses) with apropos tunes by “supper club chamber-pop” band Obi Best. What did you get him?... SanFran band Royal Baths soak the Tin Can in the psych-pop offa their Woodsist debut, due to drop next month. In the mean, take a taste at theirSpace: myspace.com/baths. More’n alittle Jonestown, I know, but without Anton. SISU (a Dum Dum Girl, “and it’s pronounced see-soo”) and Public Dims go first.... From Manhattan Beach, surf punks Chum play a CD-release at the Tiki for their new “instro/surf” collection Fighting Words. Front chummer Rickshaw disclaims, “If you’re expecting pretty harmonies and little old ladies from Pasadena, that’s a shame.”

Saturday 13
Sat-ur-day in the park...naw, man, Barnesey’s putting on a punk-rawk record swap at the Shakedown Saturday — Tees, pix, vinyl, discs, all kinds of shi...stuff. And hang out, have some beers and brats, because later on, scary bands Deadbolt and the Creepy Creeps’ll keep you up all night. Boo.... Speaking of scary bands, Brick by Brick’s sending Copenhagen’s psychobilly horror band the Nekromantix to Mira Mesa’s all-ages place Epicentre.... Casbah’s bringing up the 92103’s punk-rock past, with Penetrators, Bedbreakers, and Manual Scan.... Anticon trip-hopper Tim Holland’s Sole and the Skyrider Band will be at Soda Bar behind this year’s Hello Cruel World.... And right down the road, Eleven’s celebrating a year in the bars-with-bands biz with local faves the Donkeys and Behind the Wagon.

Sunday 14
From Negahdariland in L.A., Sarah Negahdari and indie-rippers Happy Hollows set up at Soda Bar Sunday night.

Soda Bar sets up Happy Hollows on Sunday

The trio’s got a self-released disc in the bins called Spells, which you’d be wise to buy from the merch guy. I caught the Hollows at Spaceland opening for Why? (speaking of Anticon), and they are one tough act to follow. Check ’em out — myspace.com/thehappyhollows — and then check ’em out. Shapes of Future Frames and Marquez! up first.... Else: pop-rock singer-songer Aimee Mann (“Voices Carry”) will be at Belly Up...and Ruby Room stages hard-rocking locals Sic Waiting, who are out to tout their debut, Anchors Astray, with Bay Area bad boys No Captains.

Monday 15
I have it on good authority that Tim Rutili’s voice causes chick-wood.

Chicago post-rock band Califone at Casbah this Anti-Monday

His post–Red Red Meat, post-rock experimental band Califone’s at Casbah with Little White Teeth this Anti-Monday. There’s a couple of organic bands that’ll sneak through your psychic pleura and muck around in your sonic subconscious. Bring a date!... Oaktown garage-pop band Shannon & the Clams wash up at Til-Two with the Trashies...while bluesman B.B. King and his trusted Gibson Lucille hit Humphrey’s by the Bay.

Tuesday 16
I gotta go with Dave Good on Tuesday’s t’do, as Blaster Dave Alvin and the Guilty Men belly up to the Belly Up. Mr. Good “Of Note”d the show, so flip or click to that for the of notables. SDMA nominees the Tilt set the stage at the Solana Beach hot spot.... Etcets: Soda Bar stages web gems Dirty Gold...avant guardian Gary Wilson does that voodoo that he do at Casbah, with D/Wolves and Dudes...rootsy Josh Ritter and the Old 97’s bring the Americana to House of Blues...and alt-radio staple Death Cab for Cutie rolls into Rimac Arena.

Wednesday 17
San Diego, we got us an embarrassment of riches Wednesday night.

The New York Dolls'll dance backwards in high heels at the Cricket Wednesday

What to do, how to choose: the hot ticket’s at the Cricket, where glam-punk perennials David Jo, Sylvain Sylvain, and their New York Dolls teach the pop-metal party boys in Mötley Crüe and Poison about Dancing Backward in High Heels...at the other end of San Diego (and the musical spectrum) is L.A.’s rump-shakin’ funk band Orgone and like-minded locals the Styletones at Belly Up...and the crème between this here midweek cookie? Check it: blues-rock ax-grinder Duke freaking Robillard rips through Anthology...the loudest bands in the land, Serial Hawk and Deep Sea Thunder Beast, take down the Shakedown...lo-fi punx Christmas Island and Cowabunga Babes will be out at Tower Bar...Brooklyn-based blues-rock band Alberta Cross continues its residency at Casbah. Writer opens that show...Mexi-pop star Reyli (Elefante) visits House of Blues behind Bien Acompanado...and just up the Fifth Ave. hill at Tin Can Ale House is a psych-pop smorgasbord for you more-is-more types, featuring Strangers Family Band, Short Eyes, Midday Veil, and April Ventura & the Magnolias. Doggies, Jed, that’s a ton of fun stuff to choose from. Now, like Hillary says in that toe-curling, tweenager-with-a-pack-a-day-habit voice of hers, Get out and see some shows!
