Monday 28
San Diego psych-surf band Barbarian wraps up their January residency at Soda Bar this Monday night after Dirt Dress, Bangladesh, and Slipping into Darkness...while Casbah’s Anti-Monday team rings up Tiny Telephones, featuring members of Hyena, Shark Attack, and Transfer’s string section. Family Wagon, Great White Buffalo, and Calico Kids fill the bill.

Freaky folkies Akron/Family visit the Loft at UCSD Wednesday night.

Tuesday 29
Swedish indietronica duo Niki & the Dove alight at Casbah after pop-punk personhood Kenny Vasoli’s (Starting Line, Prize Fight) new band Vacationer...L.A. alt-rockers Nightmare Air will be wrapping up their January residency at the Griffin after Boy King (née Bunny Gang)...while at Brick by Brick, fusion-rock supergroup the Aristocrats bring Boing, We’ll Do It Live! to the Bay Park bar.

Wednesday 30
Psych-folk famile Akron/Family visits the Loft at UCSD. What I know best about the Portland-based band comes from their v. recommendable ’09 collection Set ’Em Wild, Set ’Em Free, a heady, adventurous record that brings Animal Collective down to Earth and accompanies me on many a hike or run. I have not properly attended A/F’s The Cosmic Birth “collage,” Set ’Em Free’s storied follow-up that dropped two years ago, but I will surely do that before Wednesday night...unless I decide to go to the Eddie Spaghetti show at Brick by Brick. Happily, Mr. Spaghetti has no pre-reqs.
