Weed-centric metal heads Cannabis Corpse light up Soda Bar Sunday night. An obvious spoof on the band name of metal brethren Cannibal Corpse, Cannabis Corpse features members of Municipal Waste, GWAR, and Antietam 1862, playing original music with a bongload of satirical lyrics. One need look no further than the title of this year’s LP, From Wisdom to Baked, to know what one is in for. Mammoth Grinder and Witchaven open the show.... Other Sunday mentionables: still rolling over the ten-year anniversary of their pop-punk big seller, So Long, Astoria, Indiana band the Ataris jack in at Casbah after Teenage Kicks and Floodlove...touring in support of her debut record, Life Is a Dog (“spaced-out rap beats and chiming indie rock...a chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter situation that should please rap-loving indie rockers, or the other way around”), Bay Area hip-hopper K. Flay will play a freebie up in the Voodoo Room at House of Blues — in case you need a break from the heaviosity that is Tristan Prettyman down on the club’s mainstage....and s’more Bay Area booya, as Grouch & Eligh are touring their annual How the Grouch Stole Christmas rap-spectacular and will drop down the chimney at Porter’s Pub Sunday night.

"Cholo-goth" duo Prayers has the pulpit at the Hideout Monday night.

Monday 8
The controversial Mexican rap-metal band Molotov goes off at Porter’s Pub on Monday. The multiple Latin Grammy–winning band is touring in support of their seventh studio record (and first in seven years), Agua Maldita. (Damned water?) I can’t stop listening to lead-off track “Oleré y oleré y oleré el UHU.” I have no idea what they’re talking about, but the yawps and grunts give my inner primate pause. You can check it out on the podcast if you’re curious.... Otherwise: post-punk Canada band Underpass and “cholo-goth” duo Prayers split a bill at the Hideout...while right up the road from that show, from “Hollywouldn’t, California, dustbowl-soul” duo Smoke Season wafts into the Soda Bar with Yoya and Citrus.

Latin-pop singer Bebel Gilberto's at Belly Up on Tuesday.

Tuesday 9
Dave Good’s notable show this week is the Latin-pop singer with bossa nova in her genes, Bebel Gilberto, who takes the stage at Belly Up. Flip or click to this week’s Of Note for Dave’s always-informative breakdown of what will go down at that one.... Meanwhilst, wrapping up their “Combing the Desert Southwest” tour, power-trio Plane Without a Pilot land at the Merrow in Hillcrest with ’60s-style pop-rock act the Lower 48.

Doom-metal duo Black Cobra slithers into Brick by Brick on Wednesday.

Wednesday 10
Shout! Shout! Tears for Fears has sold out! Yup, that Belly Up bill is filled (boooo), but for you unfortunates, Creepers are playing the Hideout (yayyy). Creepers features Dan Tracy and Shiv Mehra, two-fifths of wicked-pissah post-metal gazers Deafheaven, and they’re touring in support of their debut Lush (“a swirling mix of shoegaze, grunge, psychedelia, and prog rock that is as ethereal as it is hookladen”), out now via Deafheaven frontman George Clarke’s All Black Recording Company. Like-minded Canada band Shmu will set it up.... And also: San Francisco’s doom duo Black Cobra slithers into Brick by Brick with heavy Miniapple act Wolvhammer for your RDA of black metal.
