What’s in a name, yo? From Nashville in Tennessee, punky-rock roustabouts Diarrhea Planet will explode on the Soda Bar stage after garage-rock trio Those Darlins and like-minded locals Buddy Banter. After some pretty relentless touring of their hella energetic live show (they have four guitarists!), DP’s 2013 I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams is getting some late love for its “Ramones holding Van Halen hostage” riffage. Poking around the interwebs for some new Planet news, I came across the fist-pumping single teaser “Spooners,” which dropped August 1, courtesy of Adult Swim’s Singles Program. Go check that shit out. Once you get past the name, Diarrhea Planet will move you.... Not so much? Seal Beach ska punks RX Bandits steal into House of Blues after the Dear Hunter...while San Diego’s fuzzed-up noise-pop duo Crocodiles commit Crimes of Passion at Casbah after Viv Vates and the Tweens.

Folkie beardo Sam Beam's Iron & Wine plays Humphreys by the Bay on Monday.

Monday 11
Rootsy Northwest troupe the Head and the Heart has sold out its North Park Theatre show, surprising no one. Okay, I’m a little surprised.... Whatever, singer/songer Sam Beam’s Iron & Wine is out at Humphreys by the Bay. The chill beardo has, over his decade of recording/touring, added layers to his spare, acoustic form, building on the hushed majesty of his breakthrough The Creek Drank the Cradle to last year’s multi-layered Ghost on Ghost, on which Beam stretches his jazz and R&B muscles to fine effect. We heard some of this on his Calexico collabration, In the Reins, which has some of my favorite Iron & Wine compositions and that I’ll probably clip into this week’s pod show, if you’re interested. Chicago-based soulful folkie Jerome Holloway sets it up.... More of the same on Monday, as guitarist/singer/songwriter Steve Gunn, once of Kurt Vile’s Violators, takes the stage at Soda Bar after L.A. player Matt Kivel and our own Sick Balloons.

Pop-rock singer/songwriter Josh Berwanger (the Anniversary) plays the Soda on Tuesday.

Tuesday 12
Josh Berwanger’s Strange Stains was a pleasant surprise in last year’s stash, tossing off a grab-bag of songcraft, from seemingly effortless Simon & Garfunkel–style classic folk-pop to glammy guitar grinders. Berwanger fronted ’90s alt/emo act the Anniversary before taking time off to coach girls’ high-school basketball: “I wanted a totally different identity.” Uh-huh. The new Josh Berwanger Band will split a bill at Soda Bar with Archie Powell & the Exports.... Speaking of Paul Simon, his boy Harper Simon’s at Casbah with Guy Blakeslee of the Entrance Band for a night of vintage pop-rock that also features L.A. staple Henry Wolfe and Driftwood Singer Pearl Charles.

The 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, Foxygen, take the stage at Belly Up Wednesday night.

Wednesday 13
Suit up for the Velvet Goldmine, as hippie-dippy Foxygen and just plain dippy Gary Wilson will split an avant bill at Belly Up Wednesday night. Foxygen’s 2013 Jagjaguwar release We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic got an 8.4 and “best new music” badge from tastemaker Pitchfork, catapulting the kids into the indie stratosphere, which is probably where they belong. Literally. Foxygen is like a jukebox spaceship fueled by fringe-rock records that the L.A. band dissects with an alien race’s scientific interest, and Amabassadors was their first contact with Earth. The follow-up, ...and Star Power, is due to drop in October, and the teasers on the web suggest the record’s 24 tracks (!) may be Foxygen’s glam-pop declaration of world domination.
