Sunday 31
So, this blew up local social media (and several national sites) last week: 20-years-gone post-punk locals Drive Like Jehu will reunite at the organ pavilion in Balboa Park at 7 p.m. on Sunday night. The show’s free and all ages. And resident organ-grinder Dr. Carol Williams will be pumping the big-pipe organ and backing the band. According to Jehu singer/guitarist John Reis, it’s really real — not another hoax — and it was all about the organ. Hit up Dave Good’s interview with Reis in this week’s Blurt, “Reunite Like Jehu,” for the scoop.... After that blast from the past, roll on down to Grampadrew’s birthday Flim Flam Review at Casbah. Go buy Drew a bourbon and stick around for the parade of local talent Grampadrew recruits for these acoustic blowouts. Monday’s a holiday — you can sleep in!

SanFran post-rock band Whirr play Sway at Soda Bar Labor Day night.

Monday 1
Labor Day Monday, SanFran post-rock band Whirr plays Soda Bar in advance of this year’s Sway CD, due to drop via Graveface Records on September 23. We’ve got a recent single called “Color Change” on the podcast that should give you a taste of what’s in store. Very recommended for fans of the My Bloody Valentine/Slowdive brand. Sad Actor, Northern Tigers, and Witness 9 will open the show.

From Austin, Texas, orchestral big band Mother Falcon lands at Soda Bar on Wednesday.

Tuesday 2
Lo-fi indie-rockers Hills Like Elephants will play a back-to-schooler at Soda Bar. Yeah, San Diego Unified’s back in session, so watch out around them school buses. If you get the hall pass Tuesday night, Hills has a new record out called Bedroom Colonies that was nominated for an SDMA, and they’ll be joined by Ed Ghost Tucker and Amerikan Bear, while DJ Man-Cat spins ’round sets.

Wednesday 3
From Austin, Texas, orchestral big band Mother Falcon lands at Soda Bar Wednesday. The collective is out to tout this year’s MF Computer — “Radiohead’s OK Computer reimagined.” Oh, yes, they did. And it’s pretty good, if you like strings and things. Catch a klip of “Karma Police” on this week’s Crawler pod. L.A.-based psych-n-soul trio Kan Wakan will set it up.
