Cinco Mysterioso and soaking in the Sixties

Stream the Crawler podcast for May 1-6! Barnaby spins the column with music clips, extra tips, and more!

Sunday 4
The Bad Plus will teach the new jazz math at the Loft at UCSD. The Minneapolis three-piece is best know for turning pop and classic rock into bop. Their reimaginings know no limits, as they break down Nirvana, Blondie, Floyd, Pixies, Rush, Tears for Fears, Neil Young, Bowie, and Sabbath. I got a clip of the BP’s “Tom Sawyer” on the podcast. It’s a grinner.... Believe it or not, there’s another mathy Minnesota band on campus Sunday, as punk’d-pop three-piece Tiny Moving Parts plays Ché Café behind web hit This Couch Is Long & Full of Friendship.... Else: the O.C.’s “Chicano-punk” big band Manic Hispanic will be at Casbah with Fink Bombs and Homeless Sexuals...while AMSD stages that “hot jazz/Western swing” trio from Austin, Hot Club of Cowtown. The band can kick out the jams, now, but the harmonizing’s the gas. (If you’re unawares, AMSD has moved to Our Redeemer at 1370 Euclid Avenue, just south of the 94 in Chollas Creek.)

Psyche-rocking Seattleites the Pharmacy set up at Soda Bar Monday night.

Monday 5
Psyche-rocking Seattleites the Pharmacy set up at Soda Bar on Monday after Joyce and Moonpool. What the Pharmacy lacks in record-making they more than make up for with road-warrior touring. These cats own the stage, just ask their last tourmates, Japanther. And hit up this week’s podcast for a taste of “Baby Be” from 2012’s Stoned and Alone set.... To help celebrate Cinco de Mayo in rock en español fashion, Belly Up books Mariachi el Bronx, which will headline sets by Creepxotica and Los Mysteriosos.

Sixties-soaked folkie Jacco Gardner will open his Cabinet of Curiosities at the Soda Bar on Wednesday.

Tuesday 6
Y’all remember Loop? That’s why I’m here. They were an alt-rock act from Englund in the ’80s considered an antidote to that era’s new-wave flavors, pushing the envelope (and volume knob) of bands such as VU, the Stooges, and MC5. This from Wikipedia works: “The band’s psychedelic/drone rock gained comparisons with Spacemen 3, much to the latter’s annoyance.” Ha. Loop plays Soda Bar after Tar Halos. Brainticket DJs will spin ’round sets, while Operation:Mindblow blows minds with its liquid light show. Heady night at the Soda.... On a similar wavelength, perpetual noise-rock act Acid Mothers Temple takes the stage at Casbah after Boston space-rockers Perhaps and Pasadena trio OGOD, which stands for “Over-Gain Optimal Death” and speaks volumes about what they do. Plug ’em up, kids.

Wednesday 7
The humpnight highlight has to be ’60s-soaked folkie Jacco Gardner at the Soda Bar. With Amsterdam roots and a Brian Jones ’do, the kid’s got Syd Barret in the blood, Nick Drake on the brain, and Donovan in the tour van’s 8-track tape deck. Check him out on this week’s podcast, or download his very recommendable, if more than a bit Zombie-fied, Cabinet of Curiosities. With like-minded locals Barbarian opening the show, this one’s It.
