Thursday 4
San Diego’s Acoustic Alliance will celebrate ten years of plucking your heart strings at Brick by Brick Thursday night. The list of locals showing off their coffee-shop chops is prodigious, so I’ll just mention the pretty ones, ’cuz that’s how I roll: Steph Johnson! Nena Anderson, y’all! Lindsay White! Suzanne Harper! Josh Damigo! (Just bustin’ your nuggage, Josh. Though, truth be told, you are a looker).... Else: Soda Bar sets up Santa Cruz altronica dudes Wild Wild (ex–Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra) with the vowel-challenged joy-pop gypsies Fmlybnd for a night of indie-kid dance jams...blues-rock slinger Johnny Stachela and his combo will rock-roll your soul at Seven Grand...while South L.A. rapper Nipsey Hussle has the mic at UCSD’s hip-hop headquarters, Porter’s Pub.

Songsmith/percussionist/ author Al Howard will get busy Friday when four his bands file into the Merrow.

Friday 5
Eddie Spaghetti and Supersuckers released another fatty slab of raunch rock with this year’s Get the Hell. We’ve got the title track off that streaming on this week’s Crawler pod for your approval. The self-annointed “greatest rock and roll band in the world” will headline sets at Casbah after L.A. punk-rawk revivalists the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs and our own country punks the Screamin’ Yeehaws.... Hillcrest hideaway the Merrow will see if they can break San Diego’s own music-making Energizer Bunny, Al Howard, as they book all of Al’s current bands — Black Sands, Midnight Pine, Heavy Guilt, and Rebeccca Jade & the Cold Fact. With Birdy Bardot (New Kinetics, Rosalyns), the gang’s all in. Good luck, Al!... Best of the rest finds space-y pop-rock combo Burning of Rome taking the stage at Soda Bar after Gods of Science and Shady Francos...while punkabilly band Hard Fall Hearts headline sets by barroom rockers Showcash, Esco punks Taken by Tomorrow, and pop-punk supplements Riboflavin at Bay Park bar Brick by Brick.

Hip-hop comic Awkwafina has the mic at the Loft Saturday night.

Saturday 6
From the borough of Queens in the city of New York, Asian-American hip-hop comic Awkwafina (known to the IRS as Nora Lum) raps raucous at the Loft at UCSD. ’Fina is touring in support of her meaty, beaty, and absolutely filthy Yellow Ranger record, which spawned the viral hits “My Vag,” “NYC Bitche$,” and “Giant Margaritas.” The latter was inspired by New York City’s ban on large sodas — “Mayor Bloomberg help me understand/ are giant margaritas also gonna get banned?”... There will be a Vinyl Junkies record swap at Casbah from 11a till 5p, with a room full of crate diggers and drink swiggers, bopping their noggins to DJ sets by the likes of Teenage Burrito Brain Carver, the Dragons’ Mario Escovedo, and Manual Scanner Bart Mendoza. After the swap folds up shop, Portland’s hokey chamber-pop folkies Horse Feathers, out to tout this year’s So It Is with Us, take the stage at the Middletown mainstay. I couldn’t push play fast enough to hear digital track “Violently Wild.” It isn’t. Though Pitchfork called the cut “a joyful noise: Horse Feathers perform the song like they’ve just discovered a new superpower.” Hm. Anyway, Portland-based piano songstress Sara-Jackson Holman will open the show.... If you’re looking for something more upbeat: Blake Miller and his L.A.-based dance-punk band Moving Units will stack ’em at Brick by Brick after like-minded locals All Leather, Qui, and Secret Fun Club...“Billy Bones” Fortuna of hardcore group the Skulls brings his new Billybones tones, The Complexity of Stupidity (“1970s-style tuneful and punchy punk rock with a modern facelift, to keep it from sounding too dated or retro”) to the Tower Bar with Dead on the Wire and Kids in Heat...while Soda Bar fills a doom-metal bill with Little Rock act Pallbearer, Icelandic band Sólstafir, and Brooklyn’s she-shredders Mortals.
