Thursday 17
Yeehaw — there’s gone be a barn-burner at Bar Pink Thursday night when SanFran “hillbilly boogie” band Jimbo Trout & the Fish People surface at the NoPark hot spot. Trout and the Fish are an old-timey fixture in the Bay Area for their “clawhammer-style pickin’ and the weird, retro, low-fidelity crust of Cap’n Beefheart.” The band includes a washboard player and upright bassist who concoct just the right roux and spice for Trout’s “musical gumbo of bluegrass, ragtime, blues, western-swing, Appalachian, rock-roll, New Orleans, honky-tonk and more.” If you’re aurally fixated, you can hit up a clip called “When I Get Drunk” on this week’s Club Crawler podcast.... With an ’80s-bent electronic backbone à la Tears for Fears, the Bunnymen, and OMD, Denver-based poptronica producer Kamtin Mohager, aka Chain Gang of 1974, is out to tout his best yet in this year’s Daydream Forever. Forgive the ref if it upsets, but teen-schlock moviemaker John Hughes would have loved this guy. Chain Gang follows Empires into Hard Rock Hotel’s Club 207, while DJ Adam Salter spins ’round sets.... Else: Oakland synth-rockers Some Ember and Arizona dark-wave duo Body of Light shine on the Soda Bar stage. DJ Mario Orduno is at the decks at that one...or if you like your rock con salsa, Mucho San Diego immigrates into Til-Two, as El Mato a Un Policia Motorizado from Buenos Aires, Argentina, headlines sets by Dorotheo from Guadalajara and tijuanenses Glasmus and Eric Curiel.

SanFran hillbilly-boogie band Jimbo Trout & the Fish People surface at Bar Pink Thursday night.

Friday 18
Twenty years strong, despite some off-and-on, L.A. underground hip-hop collective Jurassic 5 comes up from the underground to kick off this year’s Friday post-race freebies at Del Mar Racetrack. The band’s teasing a live album, supposedly being recorded on this summer’s Word of Mouth Reunion Tour. Yeah, you could be on a Jurassic 5 joint, yo. And listen, the Track calls it “4 o’clock Fridays,” but that shit don’t hit before 7p. Monk wouldn’t lie to you.... After that: shock-punk purveyors Dwarves and Queers are splitting bills at Soda Bar Friday and Saturday nights. Masked Intruder and Atom Age open both shows...local indie-rock hits Pinback play Casbah with Life, which features members of Pinback...from Seattle, bedroom-rock conjurers Craft Spells work their magik at the Hideout after San Francisco sad-pop trio Bilinda Butchers...if you like it loud, Old Man Wizard, Man vs. Man, Dreadnought (CO), Wayfarer (CO), Ghetto Blaster, and Peace Creep fill a freaky-big Friday bill at the Tower that starts at 6p...while up in the rurals, ska punks Buck O Nine and Voodoo Glow Skulls skank up the Ramona Mainstage.

Cannonball suit? Check. Helmet mic? Check. Must be one-man blues punk band Bob Log III. Log rolls into Casbah Saturday night.

Saturday 19
Doo Rag disciple Bob Log III rolls into Casbah after Badabing and the Department of Descriptive Service. Log’s a one-man blues-punk band who plays foot-stomp drums and slide on his favored Silvertone archtop, but he’s best known for his full-body cannonball suits and helmet-mic. He’s not just musical, he’s carnival, and lyrically carnal — explicitly so. We’ve got a clean-ish clip of Bob Log hit “Shake the Boot” on the pod.... Best of the rest, Satty night: local dance-pop oddity Birdzilla lands at the Tin Can in Bankers Hill...from L.A., Fat Wreck band Bad Cop/Bad Cop’s a she-punk four-piece that raids Til-Two after Bombpops go off. Western Settings, News from the Front, and New Addiction fill the bill...grind-punk pair Scooby BaNachos and Tom Scum, aka Idols Plague, headline sets under the spire at the Tower after Hemorage and Feral Depravity...while “lipschtick” comedienne Rita Rudner graces the stage at North Park Theatre.
