Thursday 4
Longtime partner in grime Gaslamp Killer (Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi) this year broke out with his first solo set, the appropriately titled Breakthrough, out now via Lotus’s Brainfeeder label.

Dub pioneer and San Diego native Gaslamp Killer rolls up on Voyeur Thursday night.

GLK breaks down the shapes of hip-hop with his own primordial ooze of acid rock and garage funk. My sixth-grade skate rat says it’s “filthy” with a wicked grin. The dub pioneer and native San Diegan leaves his adopted home, the communal Low End Los Angeles, to visit Voyeur Thursday night. Bear in mind, the DJ was tagged “Gaslamp Killer” from years of wrecking downtown’s dance floors with his “doom-struck instrumental hip-hop”.... The other notable show goes off at the all-ages Irenic in North Park, where avant-guardian Ariel Pink and his Haunted Graffiti deliver the outsider pop off of this year’s Mature Themes, a Best New Music release, according to the tastemakers at Pitchfork, which declares the disc “as vital as anything he’s ever recorded.” And Pink’s recorded a lot. SoCal’s sexiest spinner, DJ Dam-Funk, opens the show low and slow.... The biggest two-piece in the world, Black Keys, visits their Viagra rock on the Valley View Casinorena. Last year’s El Camino was an absolute Billboard killer. Good on ’em, but, man, is their sound getting played out....

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti will possess the Irenic with outsider pop this Thursday.

Best of the rest: blues-rock radio staple and Black Keys forebears George Thorogood & the Destroyers hit Humphreys with sick six-string slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd...pub-rock throwbacks Sculpins, From Scars, and Badabing fill a pop-punk bill at Tin Can Alehouse...while local garage-rock-rollers Wild Wild Wets and Barbarian invade El Dorado downtown.

Friday 5
Bay Parking? At Brick by Brick, the “Back from Beyond” tour celebrates 25 years of touring and recording for L.A.-via-Chicago industrial-disco sleazoids My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. The seven-piece — prone to bouts of PG-13 performance art — will stage their trademark grind-house lounge act after Squirelly Arts, Bricklayer Bosh, and Hocus...and right ’round the bend at the Griffin, Brooklyn synth-pop trio Class Actress joins like-minded locals Jamuel Saxon to kick out your recommended daily allowance of electronic dance jams. Class Actress’ 2011 offering, Reapproacher, was a surprising commercial/critical hit for the newbs, earning a spot on AllMusic’s Favorite Indie Pop and Rock Albums of 2011.... Else: there will be a Burning of Rome CD-release show at Casbah after Long and Short of It, Black Hondo, and Erleen Nada. The Operation: Mindblow liquid light show’s also in the house...and “the #1 authentic tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time,” DSB, apes at Anthology. If you don’t know DSB stands for “Don’t Stop Believin’” and the band they’re talking about is Journey, man, I’m sure as hell not gonna to tell you.

Saturday 6
Philadelphia’s ramshackle rockers Dr. Dog have managed to dig up some pretty catchy psych-poppin’, folk-rockin’ deep cuts from ’60s and ’70s records that were never made by bands that never existed. (Not entirely sure that works, but let’s see if it makes it to publication, shall we?)

Philly faves Dr. Dog play at 4th&B Saturday night.

Will Crain wrote a knowing Of Note on this 4th&B billing, so flip or click to that for the fat on what promises to be the gig to get to this week. No shit, these guys kill it live, and their new record, Be the Void, is a keeper.... Another re-e-eally good one at the Irenic, as Sub Pop’s spacey alt-rock duo Helio Sequence hits the new North Park hot spot behind this year’s Negotiations. I have not heard it, but the band says it’s warmer and organicer, “shaped by nature itself.” Huh.... Udderwise: outlaw honky-tonker Peewee Moore takes the Shakedown stage after Bill Cardinal & the Canyon Band and Cactus Jacks...Estonian dream-pop damsel Maria Minerva joins Jeans Wilder and the gettin'-busy Erleen Nada at Soda Bar...and Eleven stages Chulo Veestan alt-rock trio Someday Assassin with Wild Arms from Seattle, Pink House from Japan, and Cardboard Lamb from the corrugated countryside.

Sunday 7
Slew of good gigs Sunday night here in America’s Finest, as the Nashville indie-rock duo of Jake and Jamin Orrall, aka JEFF the Brotherhood, rolls into Casbah behind this year’s breakthrough Hypnotic Nights (hit #1 on the CMJ Radio 200 Album Chart on August 14) after Roxy Jones and Diarrhea Planet (seriously?)...Drive by Trucker Patterson Hood delivers his new acoustical solo set, Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance, to Anthology...Southern-fried hip-hopper Yelawolf’s Slumerica tour hits House of Blues behind his last rap record, Radioactive...old-school punks Guttermouth, the Queers, and D.P.I. (Drunken Punkin’ Idiots) stack ’em up at Brick by Brick...and San Diego’s School of Rock presents a Black Keys vs. White Stripes rock-off at Porter’s Pub at UCSD.

Monday 8
House of Blues has the Hives. For 20 years, the dapper Swedes have been touring the world behind intermittent output (five studio records in all) of garage-pop revivalism that yielded a coupla hits in “Hate to Say I Told You So” and “Main Offender.” This summer’s Lex Hives sports a few more crowd-pleasers, and the Hives are wise to sticking to those onstage, which is really where the band butters its bread. Openers Fidlar (“Fuck It Dog, Life’s a Risk”), an L.A. fourpiece popular for their credo of “wake, bake, and skate,” will kick it off with a Converse to the head....

Spend an evening with odd-pop peeps David Byrne and St. Vincent at Humphreys on hump night.

Monday’s honorable mentionables include Deadhead crusties Dark Star Orchestra serving up granola jams at Belly Up...Japanese noise-rock quartet Zoobombs bringing The Sweet Passion to Soda Bar...while another band from Japan, the experimental instrumental act Mono, will be splitting a bill with art-rock guitarist Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine) at Casbah.

Tuesday 9
In 1973, Billy Joe Shaver (now 73) released his debut record Old Five and Dimers Like Me, a must for any fan of the outlaw-country brand. Since then, the Texan’s enjoyed a fine, if fringe career in music and movies, something like his compadre Kris Kristofferson. Shaver does it missing two fingers on his dominant hand. Check out this year’s Live at Billy Bob’s Texas for a preview of what the highwayman’ll be bringing to AcousticMusicSanDiego Tuesday night.... Else: It’s the surf-jazz siblings’ Mattson 2uesday at El Dorado downtown...and rapper/TV personality Xzibit (Pimp My Ride) rolls up on Porter’s Pub.

Wednesday 10
The Talking Head and the indie artist. David Byrne & St. Vincent are out to tout their skewed and funky collaborative collection Love This Giant, out now on 4AD. The odd couple will play Humphreys by the Bay.... Jazz act Bad Plus is best known for their pop-rock deconstructions, reworking everyone from Bowie and Black Sabbath to Neil Young and Yes. The Minnesota-based trio will play an early show to be followed by the British blues-rock band Savoy Brown at Anthology.... And Black Hippy Kendrick Lamar rocks the mic at Soma in support of his debut solo set Good Kid, Mad City.
