Thursday 8
Trip-hop poet Yoni Wolf of Why? will play Ché Café with his protégé, Serengeti. Wolf had been on tour with his full band through April, but in May stripped down to “rap-only” dates, on which “the indie-rap hybrid,” according to the Onion’s A.V. Club, “will be delving into WHY?’s catalog, as well as tracks from cLOUDDEAD, Reaching Quiet, and remixes he did for Boards of Canada.” Serengeti (Chicago MC David Cohn) just released the well-received Sisyphus with Son Lux and Sufjan Stevens. Expect some of that, some of his hilarious Chicago raps (Dennehy), and probably a whole lot of Yoni Wolf–assisted spits from Monk house fave Family & Friends. Oh, we’ll all be there. We’re ’uge fans.... Nothing new here, Pussycat. In his skin-tight trou, body shirt unbuttoned to the belly button, and swinging a big mic between his deep-throated croons, 73-year-old Vegas staple Tom Jones graces the stage at House of Blues. The Welshman is a wonder, charting 36 Top 40 hits and grabbing a Grammy in his 50-year career, which picked up steam with 1999’s aptly titled Reload. If you’ve never given it a spin, it is a humdinger, sporting a bunch of unlikely covers (“Lust for Life” with the Pretenders!) as well as the Mouse T-assisted hit “Sex Bomb.” I’m spinning his “Burning Down the House” at the top of this week’s podcast, so go push play for a taste.... Lestat’s has singer-songer Tom Freund. Freund recently released a double disc of his live dates at Venice Beach’s Stronghold called, appropriately enough, The Stronghold Tapes, which requires your attention, San Diego singer/songwriter — Freund’s ease with a tune holds life lessons.... Else: Soda Bar sets up Dave Good’s Of Noted show this week, Black Prairie. They’re a Portland-based nu-grass band that features members of the Decemberists...and Dallas alt-country act Old 97’s rolls into Belly Up behind this year’s ATO offering, Most Messed Up.

TJ hardcore quartet DFMK take down the Shakedown Friday night!

Friday 9
Friday finds the Shakedown filling a fine punk-n-roll billing with TJ’s melodic hard-core crew DFMK, which just gets better with every record, welding their jagged metal seams with dark soul-rock and blues. San Diego bands Homeless Sexuals, Shark Blood, and White Murder will heat it up.... If you feel like nodding your noggin nostalgically, AC/DC tribute Bonfire lights up House of Blues. According to AXS TV, which is a platform for cover bands, “When it comes to paying tribute to AC/DC, Bonfire is the gold standard.” Diamond Dave–era Fan Halen opens the show.... Best of the rest Friday night: the rootsy, bluesy, bounce up and downsy Bedbreakers will be at Whistle Stop in South Park...Shake Before Us, Schitzophonics, Badabing, and Gloomsday fill a garage-rock bill at Tower Bar...English street punks (circa 1979) One Way System set up at Soda Bar...from New York City, indie-pop five-piece Pains of Being Pure at Heart delivers Days of Abandon to Casbah after like-minded Brighton band Fear of Men...and them folksy fiddling fizzy kids from UCSD, Soda Pants, will play a CD-release thing at the Loft on campus.

Soda Bar sets up Survival Knife (ex-Unwound) on Saturday.

Saturday 10
The two dudes from ’90s alt-rock trio Unwound are in Survival Knife. They sound kind of heavy post-punk, like Unwound. What I’m listening to right now, anyway. They’ll headline sets Saturday night at Soda Bar after the gal who was in Unwound, Sara Lund. Her new band is called Hungry Ghost, which bills itself as “trash garage.” I can relate. So can locals Beehive & the Barracudas, which rounds out this legends bill.... Other mentionables: art-punk supergroup Ghetto Blaster (Fishwife, Rats Eyes, Hostile Combover) will turn it up at Tin Can Ale House after SanFran “doom crush psych sludge” band Prize Hog and local rock-roll trio Diving for Earth...New York indie rockers We Are Scientists split a bill with Glaswegian pop-punk trio Paws at Casbah. Spinning Fat Cat Records release Cokefloat! by Paws right now. Really catchy, like Imperial Teenage Fanclub nyuk...Chica Diabla and Masteria split a she-punk bill at Shakedown...and Porter’s Pub has Roach Gigz. It’s not bugs, it’s a rapper from the Bay Area. He’s got some mixtapes making the rounds called Roachy BalboaRound 1, Round 2, Round 3, you get the pic — that sound kinda funny: “If my liquor was some candy I would have a sweet tooth/ And I don’t see proof that they eat cheese poofs.”
