Minneapolis electro-pop act Polica plays Belly Up on Wednesday.
Minneapolis electro-pop act Polica plays Belly Up on Wednesday.
Ex-Mika Miko fuzz-pop act Bleached Ride Your Heart into Soda Bar Sunday night.

Sunday 15
Mika Miko’s Jessica and Jennifer Clavin are Bleached, a duo that distills scuzzy guitar-pop on its Dead Oceans debut Ride Your Heart. It’s a driving, darling racket of ’60s girl-group revisionism that has rock writers comping Best Coast up and down the dial. Eh. If you miss Mika Miko, too, this’d be the gig to see Sunday night at Soda Bar, where like-minded locals Northern Tigers and Kera & the Lesbians get the beach ball bouncing.... Utter mentionables: down at the electro-House of Blues, Swedish dance-pop duo Icona Pop splits a bill with trip-hop hit K. Flay...and ex-Ozzy guitarist Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel fills a hard-rock bill at Brick by Brick along with Ethan and Nili Brosh, Temporal Riff, Greg Vaughan’s Phantom Cargo, and the Sick String Outlaws.

Indie-rock buzz band Bulletins plays Anti-Monday at Casbah.

Monday 16
Del Mar’s own folk-pop confessor, that torchy young woman Tristan Prettyman, will be at Belly Up on Monday night behind her latest, Cedar + Gold, the singer-songwriter’s post-Mraz diary. (The on-again, off-again couple broke the engagement and saved the universe.) Beach-rock locals the Paul Canon Band open the show. Mr. Canon’s music ministers “peace, harmony, and good vibes,” even the song called “Monkey Butt”.... Casbah’s anti-Monday team throws an electronic hip-hop Pool Party after Lorelei Plotczyk’s (Film School) new buzz band Bulletins and natty alt-rock quartet Danny & the Tramp.

Tuesday 17
L.A. 4 A.D. artists Inc. play Soda Bar behind this year’s No World, a narcotized take on NIN. It’s what I’m hearing, anyway. Brothers Andrew and Daniel Aged tag as “atmospheric,” “soulful,” “indie R&B.” No?...laughy Dallas McLaughlin’s second annual Wally Bunting Christmas Special will be at Bar Pink and promises lots of special guests crooning Broadway classics and trad holiday faves.

Industrial-grade synth-rock act Orgy hits Brick by Brick on Wednesday.

Wednesday 18
Poliça (which is pronounced poe-lisa and apparently means “America’s Portishead”) plays Belly Up on humpnight. The Minneapoliça synth-pop quartet is touring in support of this year’s well-received Mom + Pop release Shulamith, a record Rolling Stone compares to “early-Prince electro burp-n-grind.” Makes sense, Prince is from there.... The other notable show’s at Brick by Brick, where industrial-grade synth-rock act Orgy — they had a hit with a clubby cover of New Order’s “Blue Monday” — joins like-minded locals Redmond, Squirrely Arts, and Bricklayer Bosh for a night of machine-gun music under seizure lights. The holidays are up on us, make ’em happy, healthy ones.
