Thursday 3
The Two-Headed Cheetah Tour comes through town tonight, as U.S. punk progenitor Cheetah Chrome (Rocket From the Tombs/Dead Boys) and L.A. punk revivalists the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs take the stage at Soda Bar. Chrome is touring in support his new disc, Solo, out now on the Nashville-based label he cofounded and manages to keep b.s.-free, Plowboy. Noise magazine asked Chrome about this musicians-running-the-asylum concept: “We give our attorneys high blood pressure.” I’ll bet. I can’t recommend the recent flick CBGB, in which Harry Potter’s Ron Weasley (actor Rupert Grint) plays Chrome, because I haven’t seen it yet, but I do have recommended reading for those of you who go beyond 140 characters, Chrome’s 2010 bio A Dead Boy’s Tale From the Front Lines of Punk Rock. Dead Boy’s Tale is a revealing read, but not just about Chrome, it’s also about the music industry’s commodification of the genre and how a rock revolutionary like Cheetah Chrome is built. This gig’s one of those rare don’t miss its. So don’t.... If it sells out on you, though, within walking distance, San Diego son Nathan Williams and his band Wavves, touring in support of this year’s well-received surf-punk set King of the Beach, will crash onto the Hideout stage in advance of Friday night’s Grand Opening Gala. More on that anon.... If you miss the door at the Hideout, well, apparently you’re not paying attention! Anyway, over in North Park, sepia-toned local folkies Midnight Pine set up at Seven Grand...L.A.-based electronic-pop artist Matthew Hemerlein, aka Lo-Fang, plays Casbah behind his debut, Blue Film...and West Coast rap duo Grouch & Eligh will rock the mic at UCSD’s hip-hop headquarters Porter’s Pub.

Hardcore hits the Adolescents will headline fun-punk sets at Casbah Friday night.

Friday 4
Part Agent Orange, part Social D, SoCal punk perennials the Adolescents take the stage at Casbah Friday night after Creepy Creeps, Widows, and Sculpins. Not a lot of press on last year’s Presumed Insolent set by the Adolescents, and I haven’t heard it, but I see that it has a song called “Conquest of the Planet of the Sea Monkeys.” Sounds like a hardcore winner to me! For fans of the brand, this is one hella fun punk bill.... As billed above, it’s Grand Opening night at the Hideout (née Eleven née Radio Room née Zombie Lounge née etc. etc.), and what better way to break a place in than with burlesque! Them Drop Dead Dames will shake their half-nekked money-makers to the soul-grind jams of live band Lady Dottie & the Diamonds, “Making you dance until your feet fall off!”.... If you’re into bar-hopping and need a change of scenery/soundery, right up the street at Soda Bar, you got Grand Rapids ska-punk sextet Mustard Plug touring in support of their latest, Can’t Contain It, with like-minded locals Oceanside Sound System. Dave Good gave you the goods on OSS in this week’s Of Note...and cholo punx Shiva Trash blow into Ché Café after Young Wants, Viv Vates (Ale Mania/Beaters), and the always dee-lish Teenage Burritos for a night of lo-fi loudness at the campus collective.

Saucy rockers the Coathangers split a bill with the Black Lips at Belly up on Saturday.

Saturday 5
Casbah and Eric Howarth’s Daydream Nation will host another Vinyl Junkies record swap of crate flippin’ and cocktail sippin’ from 11a till 5p at the Middletown bar. Another solid lineup of DJs this week, with Melvins drummer Dale Crover anchoring the crew from 3 till 5p. That night, Casbah stages a locals-only bill, featuring four hot-ticket barroom rock-rollers — New Kinetics, Schitzophonics, Gloomsday, and the Nformals. Can’t miss.... There are a couple of top-shelf Atlanta bands in town, too, though, as flower-punk four-piece Black Lips put their dark kiss on the Belly Up stage after tourmates the Coathangers. The Black Lips are out to tout this year’s Patrick Carney (Black Keys)–produced Underneath the Rainbow, by all accounts a schitzy set of the band’s filthy garage roots and Hey hey we’re the Monkees-mania. Hmm. Listen, these guys leave it all onstage and are worth every nickel of the $20 admission (400 nickels). And with the ever-playful four-piece Coathangers setting it up behind this year’s not-so-candy-coated Suck My Shirt, this’ll probably maybe definitely be the gig to see Saturday night. It’s probably maybe definitely the one I’m going to.... Uptown: “full of neo-classical impulses and trance-inflected rhythms,” San Diego’s Tangerine Dream of trip-hop, Ilya, plays the Irenic after Champ and Arms Away...and from North County, up-and-coming surf-punk band the Cardielles are out at Tower Bar behind their new EP, Delirium/Blues, now available for free from the Local Pyle at 94/9's website.... Popular British goth-rock band the Cult takes the stage at Humphrey’s by the Bay after the Ian Astbury–approved (he’s a fanboy!) San Diego “cholo-goth” duo Prayers.... If you’re up to jump after that one, on your way out of the Bay, Midway punk club Shakedown will be rocking loud and late, staging Canada band Creepshow, with the Phenomonauts, Rat City Riot, and the Blackjackits for a night of street punk and greazy psychobilly beats.
