Tiki Oasis and Berserktown

Plus White Mystery, Fu Manchu, and the Heaters hit town this week

Man or Astroman? land at this year's Tiki Oasis at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley.

White Mystery will be banging their ginger fros at Whistle Stop Thursday night!

Thursday 13
Sounds like the Flintstones meet the Jetsons at this year’s Tiki Oasis, as the annual cocktail-nation confab promises to premodernize “Tomorrowland” style. “We here at Tiki Oasis will take you on warp speed from the garage-rock primitivism of the Chocolate Watchband to the blast-off rock of those beings from another planet Man or Astroman?” It all starts Thursday night with a meet and greet at San Diego’s house of sticky sweet eats and unbrella drinks, the Bali Hai on Shelter Island, and then the tiki torch glows through Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley. Deets at the kitsch-chic new website: tikioasis.com/2015/.... From Chicago, those crazy White kids with the banging ginger fros, brother-sister band White Mystery, roll into Whistle Stop Thursday night. Guitarist Miss Alex White (founder of Missile X Records) and her kid brother drummer Francis Scott Key White are touring in support of last year’s double album, Dubble Bubble, which includes a disc of new studio stuff and a disc of live takes from Chicago’s Double Door club. The siblings absolutely shred, giving those other Midwest Whites a run for the blues-rock crown.... More heaviosity across town in Hillcrest, as heady hard-rockers Mursic, Ruines Ov Abaddon, Xantam, and Procyon fill an ear-ringing bill at the Merrow.... “I was born to do this, and I’ll die doing it,” says Struts frontman Luke Spiller. The English glam-rock band hits House of Blues behind their Virgin debut Everybody Wants, which arrives tautologically tagged, “campy Queen.”

Fu Manchu rock King of the Road at Casbah on Saturday.

Friday 14
Berserktown weekend kicks off at the Observatory up in The O.C., staging a bunch of fun stuff through Sunday, highlighted by Thee Oh Sees, Fucked Up, and Royal freaking Trux. As far as we know, that’s a one-off for Haggerty and Herrema, but let’s see what the weekend brings. I’ll bet a dozen donuts they’re putting the band back together.... Closer to home, Belly Up books Whitey Morgan and the 78’s. Savingcountrymusic.com calls him “Whitey By God Burly Beard Ornery As Hell Whiskey Shootin’ Telecaster Twangin’ Morgan,” and says this year’s Bloodshot release, Sonic Ranch, is “the missing piece in what was already a well-apportioned arsenal of outlaw honky-tonk firepower.” Phoenix-based acousti-country cat Tony Martinez opens the show.... And around town Friday night, Casbah has more country-fried fare, as Cash’d Out exhumes the Man in Black after the Sleepwalkers and Stephen el Rey...Soda Bar sets up Echo Park oddity Kim House and her Kim and the Created. House is a tall, blonde, freak of a fashion plate who knows how to crush a crowd, or as Noisey puts it, “Kim and the Created’s live performance is nothing short of a full-blown exorcism”...right down the road, LA/NY dark-wave dude Wesley Eisold’s Cold Cave hits the Hideout after the goth-pop Victoriana...alt-rock acts the Toadies (“Possum Kingdom”) and Fuel (“Shimmer”) split a bill at House of Blues...while out in La Mesa, the always-entertainin’ rock-n-tonk covers quartet Rio Peligroso rolls into the Riviera’s Turquoise Room.

Psychotropic Michiganders Heaters fire up the Hideout on Saturday.

Saturday 15
I had this fun Saturday spiel about the B-Five-Twos gigging Humphreys by the Bay, but it turns out that cosmic thing is sold way way out. Even my ticket broker/barber guffawed — and Anton is not a man known to guffaw — so if you want to see it, as Anton says, “Start blowing up your rubber, amico mio, and these time don forget the oars ha ha ha!”.... If you missed tickets too, Casbah has us covered with some hardcore for hippies, as they stage “an evening with” Fu Manchu! The boys’ll be blowing through their supersonic sixth disc, King of the Road, as well as a jukebox worth of hits, deep cuts, and crazy covers. Mos def, one of my favorite live bands, so see you on Kettner.... Miss the door in Muggletown, you’ve got Grand Rapids’ “psychotropic” trio the Heaters at the Hideout. I’d never heard of them, so I gave their Bandcamp page an officious perusal, and man, the new songs (“Mean Green” b/w “Levitate Thigh”) are stellar stuff — and “psychotropic” is on point. I cannot recommend the purchase, though, as the EP’s listed at $1000. Tickets to the gig are just ten bucks... Else: local rock-rollers Joey Harris & the Mentals will get mental at the Merrow with the Casey Hensley Band and 22 Kings...L.A.’s melodic death-metal band Nekrogoblin will stack ’em at Brick by Brick behind this year’s Heavy Meta after Crimson Shadow and Lord of War...while that Latin-flavored funky musical stew B-Side Players bring the party to Solana Beach bar Belly Up.
