The Glamour, the Squalor, and the Avengers

...plus Little Hurricane blows into town, while Deadbolt and Schizophonics blow out of town

SanFran punk band the Avengers take the stage at Casbah Thursday night.

Deep-pocket players the Charlie Hunter Trio take the stage at the Loft at UCSD on Thursday night.

It’s the American in me that never wonders why/ Kennedy was murdered by the F-B-I! Update a few of the lyrics to the Avengers’ indictment of blind patriotism, “The American in Me,” and Penelope Houston’s anthemic punk-rock rant still holds water. Of course, that water’s polluted with 40 more years’ worth of industrial waste, but you get the pic. Formed in 1977, the SanFran band was at the forefront of the Left Coast punk scene, opening for the Sex Pistols on their final American shows. For those of you who need a primer or a reminder, Avengers best-of set American in Me was recently reissued. Known these days as the “queen of neo-folk,” Penelope Houston and original guitarist Greg Ingraham will front this year’s Avengers at Casbah Thursday night after local throwbacks I Wish I, Social Spit, and the Widows.... Else: the post-bop seven-string guitar slinger Charlie Hunter plays the Loft at UCSD behind this year’s Let the Bells Ring On — “Gritty, greasy, and downright celebratory...designed for the Charlie Hunter Trio’s singular, deep-pocket sound” — after soul-jazz trio Bomb Squad secures the room with their “organ grooves with a fat ass”...while Jennie Vee, a multi-instrumentalist who has accompanied Courtney Love, headlines sets at Soda Bar behind her “melancholic dream-pop” debut, Spying. Vowws, Lowlands, and Blood Candy open the show.

Blues-rock duo Little Hurricane blow into Casbah for two this weekend, Friday and Saturday nights.

Friday 4
The scariest band in the land Deadbolt headlines sets by San Diego’s favorite psych-n-blues trio Schizophonics and sepia-toned folkies Creature & the Woods up at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown. If you need a night away, I can’t think of a funner place to stay Friday night.... Not up for the drive, blues-pop duo Little Hurricane blows into town for two shows Friday and Saturday nights at Casbah. The San Diego Music Award winners are touring in support of last year’s breakout record Gold Fever, which upped the ante for “CC” (drummer/singer) and “Tone” (guitar etc./singer), chugging through new blues and old, and tugging boots to the floor with two of their catchiest songs yet in “Summer Air” and “Boiling Water.” On Friday, Birdy Bardot, Dani Bell, and Rin Tin Tiger will set it up. On Saturday, you get Soft Lions, Dani Bell, and Rin Tin Tiger.... Best of the rest Friday night: the Amandas will celebrate the season with their holiday soul revue at Whistle Stop in South Park...psych merchants Operation: Mindblow curate Winter’s Womb 666 at Til-Two, featuring SanFran punk-n-roll band Hot Lunch with local heavies Harsh Toke, Sacri Monti, and Loom...while Tanlines and IO Echo split an indietronica bill at the Irenic.

Marco Collins will attend the San Diego screening of The Glamour & the Squalor and do a Q&A afterward at the Irenic.

Saturday 5
At the Irenic on Saturday night there will be a screening of the Marco Collins rockumentary The Glamour & the Squalor, which you can read all about in this week’s “Imperfect storm” Blurt. After the flick and Q&A with Collins (a former San Diego and Seattle radio personality known for breaking several gold-record-selling alt-rock acts), the all-ages venue stages local favorites Octagrape and Big Bad Buffalo.... Blues-rock great Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule) and his Ashes & Dust Band take the stage at the Observatory North Park — wait, nope, no they don’t. According to Mr. Haynes’s website, “Due to a family emergency, Warren Haynes and the Ashes & Dust Band have had to cancel their upcoming West Coast tour dates. Refunds will be available at point of purchase, and we hope to reschedule the shows soon”.... Still looking to get your Southern rock on? Hoof it up to Ramona Mainstage, where the the rural rock outpost welcomes outlaw country’s “longhaired redneck” David Allan Coe (“Take This Job and Shove It”).... Else: from the Bay Area, black-metal band Pale Chalice spills its full-length debut, Negate the Infinite & Miraculous, at the Tower Bar after Morphesia and Those Darn Gnomes...while ’Zonie groove-metal band Soulfly hits Brick by Brick with this year’s Archangel. Contortion, Nukem, Daemos, and Hunt the Elite open that show.
