Protomartyr's Under Color, Bowie's Undercover

...and the Eagulls have landed

Detroit's Protomartyr is touring in support of their very recommendable post-punk CD Under Color of the Right. They play the Hideout Sunday night!

Sunday 25
Sunday’s in play if you’ve got a three-day weekend. And if you do, have I got a show for you: out to tout my early pick for 2014’s record of the year, Under Color of Official Right, Detroit-based post-punk four-piece Protomartyr will play the Hideout. With a dark intellect that’s equally funny and frightening and an artfully economical rock, Protomartyr gains comps to pioneers the Fall and Joy Division and contempos like Parquet Courts and Tyvek. All great, imo. Fans of the brand, I’ll see you in City Heights. Lube will loosen the room for ex-Beaters Viv Vates.... Best of the rest: folk-pop singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega (“Luka,” “Tom’s Diner”) plays Belly Up behind this year’s Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles...West Coast rapper Too Short has the mic at Fluxx...while Hornblower’s Inspiration boat lands Designer Drugs. They’ll never make it out of the harbor.

Indie-pop dance band Crystal Fighters bring Cave Rave to the Irenic on Tuesday.

Monday 26
It’s Memorial Day. Take some time to ponder your freedom to rock...then maybe head over to the Office in North Park where a bunch of local rock-roll personalities will be performing their favorite David Bowie tunes in a show called Bowie Undercover. Who’s who? You got Stevie Harris, Gary Shuffler, Maren Parusel, and radio cat Mike Halloran, just to name a few...if you’re too late to clock in at the Office, walk over to Bar Pink where the tantalizing Mz. Tori Roze and her Hot Mess will dig deep for this week’s Soultry Monday...indie folkies the Jamestown Revival and Whiskey Circle will split a bill at Soda Bar...while English alt-rock duo Blood Red Shoes track that shit all over the Casbah stage after Radkey and the Soft Lions.

Tuesday 27
The British hippie-dippy dance band Crystal Fighters twirl into the Irenic after Wunder Wunder. The Fighters are touring in support of their latest, Cave Rave, which their hometown mag NME dismisses as “new age bullshit.” Hm.... What else? Casbah stages L.A. “sex prog” duo In the Valley Below, which is playing some SoCal residencies in the coming weeks. Mercy Beat and Tiger & the Teller will open the freebie.

English indie-rock act Eagulls land at Soda Bar behind their new s/t set Wednesday night.

Wednesday 28
I’m over as usual, so real quik, your humpnight hits like this: English post-punk flava of the day Eagulls land at Soda Bar behind this year’s well-received s/t set. The actually pretty darn good Chicago garage-pop band Twin Peaks and lo-fi locals Ditches dig in first...right down the street from Soda Bar at the Hideout, you got Illinoisy alt-rock duo Local H...local punk-rawk faves the Touchies join the Zeros’ Javier Escovedo and the Nformals at Bankers Hill bar Tin Can Ale House...industrial-strength metal band My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult is up at the Ramona Mainstage...and last and least, Backstreet Boys bring their tired thing into Viejas Arena after Avril “Sk8r Boi” Levigne. I know, I’m mean. If you grew up in the bedroom next to my sister blasting that crap all day, you’d be mean too.
