San Diego grindcore quartet the Locust swarms UCSD's Porter's Pub on Saturday.

Screaming freaking Female Marissa Paternoster will shred heads at the Soda on Saturday.

Saturday 23
After an appearance at ATP’s flipside festival I’ll Be Your Mirror in May (at an English palace with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!), San Diego grindcore quartet the Locust are still airborne and swarm Porter’s Pub at UCSD Saturday night. For 20 years, the synth-drunk demons of screamin’ speed math have bewildered and won audiences with aggressive inventiveness (I have no idea what that means, but there it is) and breath-stopping brevity. According to guitterist Bobby Bray, Locust songs are “a reflection of how our brains have to function in order to be able to do anything in the Western societies we live in.” Suck on that, Lady Gah. Widows up first.... Too late to La Jolla? Take the 5 to the 8 to the 805 to El Cajon Boulevard, where Soda Bar stages Screaming freaking Females. The new Brunswick punks’ latest, Ugly, is the trio’s most accomplished (and eclectic) set yet, as she-shredder Marissa Paternoster (one of the most dynamic guitarists in rock today, I’m tellin’ ya) adds songwriting to her already prodigious chops. Upset and Sledding with Tigers go first.... Utter mentionables: piano-pop indie hits Hills Like Elephants roll into Bar Pink behind their sophomore soul-rocker Feral Flocks. L.A.’s “dirty fuzz-pop” trio Sad Robot plugs in first...and the Griffin fills an alt-hop bill, as Awol One and Die Young (Shape Shifters) join 2 Mex (the Visionaries), Odessa Kane, and Trust One at the Bay Park bar.

Psych 'n' soul Seattleites the Night Beats bring Sonic Bloom to Casbah on Sunday.

Sunday 24
From the dark side of the garage comes psych ’n’ soul Seattleites the Night Beats with this year’s Sonic Bloom, the trio’s second studio set, out now from the Reverberation Appreciation Society. Like Zombies writing a demented cowboy soundtrack to Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, the saloon blooze of Bloom burns but goes down easy. For fans of the brand, I can’t recommend the record or this show enough. They will be wrapping a three-month tour and leaving it all onstage at Casbah after like-minded locals Wild Wild Wets and Amerikan Bear.... Miss the door in Middletown, Japanese doom-metal band Church of Misery is at Soda Bar behind this year’s Thy Kingdom Scum. Wizard Rifle, Wild Honey, and Deep Sea Thunder Beast set the stage there...Bar Pink books local jazz-rap sextet Lyrical Groove...Godhead head Jason C. Miller will be at Brick by Brick...and who-dat cabaret act Vaud & the Villains belly up to Belly Up for some Sin and Tonic.
