Thursday 4
Hoosier folk-rocker Timothy Showalter, aka Strand of Oaks, takes the stage at Casbah behind his fourth studio set, HEAL. Opener “Goshen ’97” is the tell here, relating Showalter’s discovery of song’s reflective ability and his discovery of the song inside himself, a Midwestern burner on a musical pilgrimage. The record ranges from American rock’s 1970s fist-pumpers through ’90s alternative with a nice feel for electronics. In many ways, like a Midwestern quarry echo to War on Drugs’ Lost in the Dream. Just like that record, there are a few hits here and, better, several savory very-near misses. Fans of Songs:Ohia will especially appreciate tribute track “JM.” “Arkansas-soul” singer Christopher Denny, who garners comps to Roy Orbison’s voice and sad-clown persona, will open the show.... Two parts REM, one Young Fresh Fellow, and two from Dream Syndicate. Add a passion for America’s pastime, and you’ve got a supergroup on a mission. The Baseball Project slides safely into Soda Bar behind this year’s record, 3rd. We had a chat with the Baseball Project’s utility player Scott McCaughey in this week’s Blurt, “Everything comes back to the game.” Dressy Bessy bats lead-off.... Best of the rest: from New Orleans, one of the Dirty Dozen, trombonist Sammie Williams, brings his brassy funk-rock band Big Sam’s Funky Nation to the Merrow in Hillcrest...English electro-house producer John Gooch, aka Feed Me, sets up at all-ages Soma behind his new drum-and-bass disc, Psychedelic Journey...whilst Humphreys by the Bay hosts Retro Futura, featuring Midge Ure of Ultravox, Howard Jones, one of the Thompson Twins, and Katrina sans Waves.

Pop-punk four-piece the Ataris plug in at the Irenic Friday night!

Friday 5
Another band of Hoosiers, the Ataris, will plug in at the Irenic after O.C. rap-rockers Zebrahead and ex-MxPx frontman Mike Herrera Friday night. It’s been ten years since the Ataris dropped their gold-certified Billboard hit, So Long, Astoria, which is about as close to a punk-pop keeper as you can get. Also, they very necessarily shred the Don Henley hit “Boys of Summer”.... Else on Friday: San Diego psych-folk outfit the Donkeys clop into Casbah behind this year’s Ride the Black Wave. We’ve got the title track streaming on this week’s podcast if you’ve yet to hear that. Lo-fi locals Tropical Popsicle and Ditches dig in first...salty sock-hoppers Gone Baby Gone join Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas and Dinosaur Ghost to fill a soul-rock bill at the House of Blues’ Voodoo Room. You can catch up with GBG’s Miss Dizzy in this week’s Blurt: “Baby won’t be bullied”...Life, featuring members of Sleeping People and Pinback, play the Tin Can with Manuok and the Darrows...while Joey Cape of Lagwagon and Chris Cresswell of the Flatliners split a band-less bill at Soda Bar.

One of the sets to catch at this weekend's Blues Fest would be Tommy Castro & the Painkillers. Sunday at 5:30, they'll cure what ails you.

Saturday 6
The San Diego Blues Festival, 2014 edition, kicks off Saturday afternoon. The weekender features Eric Burdon & the Animals, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro & the Painkillers, Rick Estrin of Little Charlie & the Nightcats, Earl Thomas & the Rhumboogies, John Primer, Lazy Lester, and lots more. Get set times etcet at sdbluesfest.com, and we will see you at the Embarcadero. Oh, sunscreen!... Still feeling blue Saturday night, check out Nashville-based acoustic-blues-rocker Patrick Sweany at Soda Bar after L.A. blues-roots trio the Record Company and our own John Meeks. Sweany’s partnered with and been produced by Black Key Dan Auerbach, if that sways you, and Nashville Scene calls this year’s Close to the Floor Sweany’s “watershed release.” It’s a hummer.... Else: Til-Two’s got L.A. glam-punk band Rebel Rebel with Diatribe, Tartar Control, Undercover Monsters, and Idols Plague on the backyard stage...San Diego space-pop five-piece Burning of Rome will headline sets at Casbah after the Satanic Puppeteer Orchestra, Grammatical B, and Melt With Me...while up in La Jolla, L.A. battle-rapper AV, the “peoples champ,” has the mic at Porter’s Pub behind this year’s mixtape, Compton.

Follow the Crawler into next week.
