Sunday 20
L.A. punk perennials X play Belly Up, acoustic-like, after Sean (Throw Rag) and Zander (Circle Jerks) and O (Fluf). If you’d like a preview of what X gets up to unplugged, I’d recommend John and Exene’s excellent 2012 record Singing and Playing. “Because I Do” is every bit as arresting as it was Under the Big Black Sun. We’ve got that playing on this week’s pod as well.... ’Round town: from Nashville, counry-rock trio Natural Child checks in to Soda Bar behind this year’s Burger Records record Dancin’ With Wolves after the Abigails and the Paragraphs...from Huntsville, Alabama, them “premium action heroes who deliver most high rocket music,” Daikaiju, deliver monster instrumental surf to the Tower after Round Eye and Dinosaur Ghost...“If the Talking Heads produced a Fela Kuti record of Sun Ra’s music,” apparently you’d get Afrobeat big band Zongo Junction. The nine-piece psychedelic dance band from Brooklyn crams onto the stage at Casbah after Afro-disco SanFran band Afrolicious and our own Tori Roze & the Hot Mess.

Soda Bar delivers Natural Child on Sunday. The country-rock trio's out to tout their new Burger Records set Dancin' with Wolves.

Monday 21
One of the Bay Area’s retro-fitted garage-psych torch-bearing bands Cool Ghouls materialize at the Hideout Monday night for what’s been dubbed a “Burger Records Night.” Despite all the knee-jerk descriptors the Ghouls might inspire, the quartet insists they have more in common with the Troggs and the Monks than the Kinks and the Stones. Give a listen to Cool Ghoul fave rave-up “Queen Sophie” on this week’s podcast and make up your own ding-dang mind. Some TBAs will open the show — call the club if you absolutely must know.... Otherwises: Tin Can Country Club welcomes Jimmy Ruelas into the fold...a one-woman band from Hawaii called Kawehi visits Soda Bar...while L.A.-via-London indie act Nightmare & the Cat’s at Anti-Monday at Casbah this week. The principal Cats are the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart’s lads, Django and Samuel, and they’ve a new CD out on Capitol called Simple, which by all critical accounts is anything but — in the wicked-produced, mainstream sort of way.

SanFran soul-rock band Soft White Sixties play the Voodoo Room at House of Blues on Tues.

Tuesday 22
At House of Blues on Tues, you got Jamaican-American reggae-fusion singer and deejay Shaggy downstairs on the big stage, while up in the Voodoo Room you got a decent trio of indie-rock acts, with Soft White Sixties, Crookes, and Caught a Ghost. I’m a sucker for Soft White Sixties’ Spoon-fed “working-class soul.” This year’s Get Right is white-on-white, but it’s tight. There’s a clip on the podcast if you’re interested.... Best of the rest: Santa Monica surf-pop trio Cayucas drops in at Casbah after Hands and Idyll Wild...and classic-radio staples the Doobies are at Humphreys.

Wednesday 23
Real quik, humpnight hits like this: from the Whistle Stop website, this Wednesday is the “debut of mid-week jazz night with a cool double bill,” as Erika Davies and the Midnight Pine roll into the South Park bar...bandless in San Diego: Matt Pryor (Get Up Kids), Chad Gilbert (New Found Glory), and Josh Berwanger (the Anniversary) share the stage at Middletown mainstay Casbah...while indie-folkie birdy bands Birds of Chicago and Lovebirds alight at Soda Bar. Get up. Get out. Drink. Dance. It’s summertime!
