Chamber-pop big band Mother Falcon perches at Soda Bar for a month of Tuesdays.
Chamber-pop big band Mother Falcon perches at Soda Bar for a month of Tuesdays.
After the big game: Soda Bar stages New York noise-rock duo Japanther.

Sunday 2
It’s Super Bowl Sunday, dontchaknow. For you humans not into it, here are a few “fit-in” talking points: “I hope the Broncos win. That means the Chargers were knocked out by the Super Bowl champs...and that Peyton Manning, what a comeback! I guess 37 is the new 27.” Or, if you like Seattle, “Those Seahawks have really cool uniforms. Did you know their quarterback, Russell Wilson, went to the same college as our own Philip Rivers? Yupper, North Carolina State — the Wolfpack.” And then howl like a wolf. A singer named Bruno Mars is doing the half-time show. I have absolutely no idea who that is. But I’m in good company because neither does Peyton Manning.... If you’re still up to go out beer-bloated with nacho gas after that, I’d recommend Japanther at Soda Bar. The Brooklyn noise-rock duo is out to tout its latest, Eat Like Lisa Act Like Bart...or ’80s/’90s indie-rock rehashers Yuck at Casbah. Their lead singer quit, which is okay, according to guitarist Max Bloom who took over vocal duties. Bloom says, “Danny was good, but he was no Bruno Mars. But then, who is?” I don’t know.

New Detroit export Hounds Below will headline alt-rock sets at Soda Bar Monday night.

Monday 3
Coupla notable shows Monday night, as Soda Bar sets up Hounds Below, that’s Jason Stollsteimer’s (Von Bondies) new musical group. They’re raucous but catchy, like our own Grizzly Business and Hocus who open the show...and the Soda’s also hosting a show up at Ché Café with the popular-pop-punk-but-horrible-band-naming Into It. Over It. and the World Is a Beautiful Place and I’m Not Afraid to Die.

Tuesday 4
San Diego-via-Kailua-Kona, Hawaii rasta-rockers Pepper check into Belly Up for two nights. The Warped Touring trio is getting some grief for their latest s/t “sell-out” set. I really wouldn’t know anything about it, but it seems they have some saleable “pop songs” on the record. Folks who review records in that particular genre apparently don’t approve of that.... Seventeen-member (17!) chamber-rock collective Mother Falcon kicks off a month of Tuesdays at Soda Bar behind their new t’do, You Knew. On their Bookface page (on which they have 10,736 “likes” as of this typing), next to “Genre” they put, “Asking us will result in awkward and uncomfortable squirming.” This week, our own sepia-toned folkies Midnight Pine open the show.

Wednesday 5
I’m waaaay over on word count this week, so if you could do the legwork on the following humpnight highlights, please and thank you: Nformals, Lower 48 (Portland), and Tan Sister Radio share an indie-rock bill in Bankers Hill at Tin Can Ale House...English indie-folkies Peggy Sue play Soda Bar with Mariner’s Children (it says a solo show?)...and twee-pop five-piece Lucius is at Casbah with Wildewoman and a band called You Won’t. You’re right.
