Band crushing on Pins, Pup, Grieves, and Bear Hands

...and the rest of the highlights from Sunday night through humpnight

"Best new group," the punk-rocking Pup will play this week's Anti-Monday at Casbah. This Monday nighter's worth them Tuesday blues.

Sunday 19
U.K. she-punk quartet Pins plays the Hideout behind their new joint, Girls Like Us, on Sunday night. Nylon.com likes it and we like Nylon.com, which included Pins in their weekly “Band Crush” column and tagged the new collection “girl chants, guitar riffs, garage-punk ear candy.” With the Lumps and Geyser House setting it up, it’s all good.... Right up the road at Soda Bar, you’ve got a couple int’l dubby singer-songwriters in Federico Aubele (Buenos Aires, Argentina) and Pablo Nouvelle (Bern, Switzerland). Y’know, if you need that occasional change of sight and sound.... The “heroine of coldhearted warm pop,” Nina Persson of the Cardigans, has a newish solo set out called Animal Heart that apparently beats to Americana. Ms. Persson plays Casbah Sunday night with El May.... London-based new-wavers Metronomy will be at Belly Up behind this year’s well-received Love Letters, which critics agree is “rawer than what came before it, trading breezy synth-pop for insistent psych-rock and soul influences.”

Monday 20
Pop-punk Canada band Pup plays Casbah behind their self-titled debut, a record that’s landed the quartet squarely on most rock writers’ best-new-group lists. I wasn’t familiar with them before this morning, but I’m streaming Pup right now, and, yeah, it rocks right. Check out a clip of “Reservoir” on this week’s Crawler podcast to see what all the hubbub is about. With Hard Girls and Mini Death setting it up, this’d be a Monday-nighter worth the Tuesday blues.... Up in Bankers Hill, you’ve got SD’s best busker, Shawn Rohlf, playing the Tin Can’s Country Club showcase this week...while up in Solana Beach, ’80s prog-pop act Asia (“Heat of the Moment,” “Wildest Dreams”) plays Belly Up.

Hip-hop hit (and one-time San Diegan) Grieves has the mic Tuesday night at Porter's Pub.

Tuesday 21
Grieves’s Different Kind of Wild tour hits Porter’s Pub Tuesday night. The Nor’west rapper’s touring in support of this year’s excellent new Rhymesayers CD, Winter & the Wolves. According to the Wik, Grieves was a San Diegan for a spell. Huh. Check out the single, “Whoa Is Me,” on this week’s Crawler podcast. Sol opens the show.

From NYC, post-punk four-piece Bear Hands will play the FM 94/9 birthday bash at North Park Theatre on Wednesday.

Wednesday 22
Erasure’s sold out Humphreys by the Bay, so unless you’ve got a dinghy you aren’t going to that thingy.... Couple of good-to-very-good buzz bands in town humpnight, though, as New York post-punk quartet Bear Hands will be at North Park Theatre behind their well-received new CD, Distraction. I got it. It’s good-to-very-good, like if Vampire Weekend or Foster the People weren’t so f-ing nerdy. Fences will set up this FM 94/9 birthday bash.... Drowned in Sound called Allo Darlin’ “the most compelling and promising band to emerge from the be-sweatered ghetto of the indiepop scene in recent years.” That right there’s a $5 sentence. I’ve no idea if it’s useful, but you can suss it out for yourself when the English/Aussie act takes the stage at Soda Bar behind this year’s Slumberland set, We Come from the Same Place. Ghost Come Back manifests first. Ta.
