Thursday 7
Warm and fuzzy but far from cozy. That’s what it feels like cuddling up to Barbarian, a local beach-goth band that earned an SDMA nomination for Best New Artist last year. Their debut EP, City of Women, exposes a technical band under all the gothic gauze, with more in common with VU’s pop than the Beach Boys’, to be sure, but still indebted to both in tone and vocal ambition. They play surf-rock for end times. Check out “Song of Love and Hate” on this week’s podcast, and then paddle out with Barbarian at Soda Bar Thursday night after indie-rockers Oliver Trolley and “hobilly-blues” guitarist Hobie Givens.... Else: 40-year-strong Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd plays Humphreys by the Bay on Thursday. This is the one night a year that yelling “Free Bird!” is not cliché...”It’s hard out here for a pimp.” Memphis hip-hop hit Juicy J (Three 6 Mafia) stays trippy at House of Blues...while just up Fifth, Pulse Liberation, Young Gents, and Speaker in Reverse fill an alt-rock bill on Bankers Hill at the Tin Can. Speaker in Reverse is Itai Faierman’s (Mashtis) new band and Dave Good’s Of Noted show this week, so flip or click there for more on them.

Rat-a-tat rock-rollers Cult Vegas play a homecoming/CD-release show at the Tin Can on Friday!

Friday 8
Philly indie-rock band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah deliver their new record, Only Run, to Casbah on Friday night. CYHSY have yet to conjure the mused/bemused musical charms of their 2005 s/t debut, and it’s clear from this year’s offering that Clap Your Hands’ main man Alec Ounsworth has no desire to do so, burying his Talking Heads twitch and rhythm in Radiohead sonics and Dave Fridmann’s heavy-handed production. Stillandall, the mused/bemused Ounsworth owns a room and is fun to watch curdle and churn onstage. And, double bonus! Alec Ounsworth will open the show solo.... Best of the rest Friday night finds rat-a-tat rock-roll trio Cult Vegas (stand-up bass!) playing a homecoming/CD-release show at the Tin Can. Trips and Robin Hill are also on the bill...the very-heavy-metal Euphoria Brass Band blasts Bar Pink with their brand of old-school Nawlins jazz-n-funk...Santa Cruz dudes Chop Tops join our own Strikers and Gore Horseman at Soda Bar for your RDA of revved-up rockabilly...Recess Records celebrates 25 years at Til-Two, featuring the Underground Railroad to Candy Land, Swing Ding Amigos, Lenguas Largas, Treasure Fleet, and Blank Pages...while Ohio punk ’n’ rollers Sidekicks, Sundials, and Dowsing bring their summer tour to Ché Café.

Weezer teasers Geezer "forget the Blue Album" at Brick by Brick Saturday night.

Saturday 9
If you’ve yet to get to the re-opened Brick by Brick, here’s as good an excuse as any, as Adam Gimbel’s Weezer teasers Geezer “forgets the Blue Album” after Green Today performs Green Day’s breakthrough record Dookie at the Bay Park bar. The Big Lewinsky will kick it all off with a tribute to the ’90s, making this the hands-down gig to get to Saturday night.... Otherwises: Tim Kasher of Cursive will don the Good Life guise at Casbah after Big Harp. And there’s a Vinyl Junkies dealio during the day at the Middletown mainstay. This is the swap’s one-year anniversary and welcomes the usual food vendors, a Burger Records booth, and guest DJs Tim Mays (Casbahist), Seth Combs (journalist), Pall Jenkins (Black Heartist), and Steve West (resurrectionist)...Gods of Science, Sound Lupus, and the Natives fill an indie-eclectic bill at the Tin Can...Tower Bar stages LOUDness, with Deep Sea Thunder Beast, Ox, Glaciers, and Bhorelorde...Ken Club presents Thee Two-Headed Oddities Showcase, featuring two-headed bands the Steinbacks, Plunger, Gloomsday, Secret Fun Club, the Pheasants, Idol’s Plague, Slig, and Badabing...while L.A. alt-pop act Toad the Wet Sprocket (“Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want”) hops into Belly Up behind their latest, New Constellation, which critics and fans agree does not suck.
