Listen to Barnaby Monk's club and concert picks covering the week of February 27–March 5, 2014.

Sunday 2
The Wailers will be at Belly Up on Sunday, celebrating the 30th anniversary of reggae staple Legend. Among the greatest of all greatest-hits collections, Legend holds the distinction of being the second-longest-charting record in Billboard history at almost 1000 weeks. Do you know what record tops it at nearly 1600 weeks? Rhymes with “shark died on the dune”.... Another grumpy punk gone singer-songer, Dave Hause (the Loved Ones) delivers his new Rise Records record, Devour, to Casbah after folk-punk Canada band Northcote.

Hip-hop comic Childish Gambino takes the stage at the Open Air Theatre (SDSU) Monday night.

Monday 3
Must be funny Monday, as hip-hop comic Childish Gambino (Donald Glover of NBC TV show Community) rocks the mic at SDSU’s Open Air Theatre shilling his new disc Because the Internet...and that shameless electro-sock-hop sister Leslie and her LYs will debase the stage at Soda Bar after Dean & the Delilahs and the Boone City Comedy Troupe.... Also on Monday, Casbah stages a Free Salamander Exhibit. No, not lizards, it’s a band name, because that’s what band-naming has come to, apparently. They’re from Oakland and they play art-rock, surprising no one.

Tuesday 4
From Los Angeles, Golden Nugget miners Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel check into Soda Bar behind their very excellent new Burger Records set Nico & Her Psychedelic Subconscious. Take the taste test (mrelevatorthebrainhotel.bandcamp.com) and then meet me at the club ready to do some time-traveling, because these guys are more than just revivalists — they got the machines to take us back. With like-minded locals the Kabbs, Boy King, and Sama Dams, this’d be the gig to see this week.... Miss the door there, though, Scotty “Mad Dog” Blinn’s blues-punk Black Market III sets up at Tin Can Ale House after the Shifty-Eyed Dogs and Boxcar Thief...and there’s a KPRI showcase in Solana Beach, where Nashville Southern metal act Wild Feathers drift into Belly Up after Saints of Valory and Jamestown Revival. The one-sheet on the Feathers reads, “They’re like if Led Zeppelin and the Band had a baby in Joshua Tree that grew up listening to Ryan Adams covering the Stones’ ’70s country-influenced songs.” Hmm.

The Griffin sets up SanFran psych-pop band Painted Palms on Wednesday.

Wednesday 5
I’m way over on words again, so, sorry for the short shrift on goth-rock great Gary Numan who will be at Belly Up behind his new joint, Splinter. Be sure to check out Andrew Hamlin’s interview with Numan in this week’s Blurt.... And alsos: Bay Park bar the Griffin sets up SanFran psych-pop band Painted Palms...and odd-pop acts Nice World, Pale, and Zombie Barbie play it strange at Tin Can Ale House. Get up, get out, these bars and bands need you!
