Killah, Crocs, El Vez, and Raveonettes

...and the best of the rest in San Diego clubs this weekend

El Vez will rock his Mexmas best at Casbah on Friday night!

Ghostface Killah rocks the mic at the Observatory Thursday night.

Thursday 17
Former Wu-Tang MC Ghostface Killah rocks the mic at Observatory North Park behind this year’s Twelve Reasons to Die II, a sequel to 2013’s well-received concept record Twelve Reasons to Die, itself an extension of Killah’s noms de rap “Tony Starks” and “Ironman” and a Marvel-sized storyline of gangster-rap fan fiction in which Killah saves the genre from the Mob. Doesn’t appear that’s the epic tale he’ll be spitting Thursday night, but given his tag as rap’s best storyteller, you can be sure it’ll be engaging and “painterly” (NPR). Dev Trav and the Bermuda will open the SRO show.... Best of the rest Thursday night finds San Diego’s favorite fuzz-rock duo Crocodiles slithering into the Hideout after Girl Team and Keepers. The Crocs are touring in support of this year’s Boys, an experimental set that finds Brandon and Charles escaping the Jesus and Mary Chain shackles to hang with the Stooges (“Crybaby Demon,” “Peroxide Hearts”). Derivative? Sure. Fun? Absofuckinglutely...if you need a change of scenery or sonics, right up the road from the Hideout, Soda Bar sets up L.A.-via-Poway country singer/songwriter Sam Outlaw, featured in this week’s Blurt, “Whole hog for country.” Outlaw headlines sets by like-minded locals Graham Nancarrow and Sara Petite...from Phoenix, Arizona, 30-years-along thrash-metal road dogs Flotsam and Jetsam stack ’em at Brick by Brick in advance of their soon-to-be-released-but-as-yet-untitled 12th record...while lo-fi Left Coasters Colleen Green and Pity Sex play punky garage-pop at Ché Café in La Jolla.

Country-fried four-piece Ypsitucky opens the show for Wayne Hancock at Soda Bar Friday night.

Friday 18
In 2013, the honky-tonk outsider Wayne “The Train” Hancock released a record titled Ride. In 2014, he suffered a near-fatal motorcycle accident. This year, Train’s back at it with a head full of steam. Reader writer Dave Good breaks down his Soda Bar show in this week’s Of Note, so flip or click there for more on him. Must-see local yokels Ypsitucky will set it up. Ypsitucky’s an all-star band (El Monte Slim, Uncle Joe’s, Bedbreakers) with an addicting country-fried EP out called New Old Lady. Austin City Limits–level talent on your street corners, San Diego, suss them out.... Else: Robert Lopez of the Zeros will don his Mexican Elvis mien El Vez’s Mexmas best for his annual holiday show at Casbah after Creepxotica and the always-entertaining Baja Bugs...Cleveland-based gangsta rap-attack Bone, Thugs-n-Harmony play the Observatory. The Grammy winners are currently enjoying a bidding war over their yet-to-be-released E 1999 Legends record, a holla back to their 1995 beginnings and E 1999 Eternal CD. So far, the high bid for Legends is a cool mill...SoCal punk perennials Strung Out will perform their 2004 Fat Wreck record Exile in Oblivion front to back at Brick by Brick...while the Grammy-winning soap star–cum–pop idol Rick Springfield (“Jessie’s Girl”) goes “stripped-down” downtown at House of Blues.

Indie-pop act Grizzly Business visits the Voodoo Room at House of Blues on Saturday.

Saturday 19
Sune Rose Wagner (he/guitar/keys/voice) and Sharin Foo (she/bass/voice) comprise the 15-year-strong Danish indie-rock duo the Raveonettes, whose music tends to the darker, more rocking side of shoegaze — garagegaze? For the past few years, the fair-skinned pair has immersed themselves in SoCal surf culture and released Pe’ahi, a surf-pop record, to critical acclaim. They drop in on Casbah Saturday night for what looks like, as of this typing, a sold-out show.... Missed the door in Middletown, just up the big hill in Bankers Hill soul-rockers AJ Froman are rolling through the “fro-zone” at the Balboa (the old Tin Can) after the Wind Playing Tricks...indie-pop acts the Verigolds and Grizzly Business split a bill in the Voodoo Room just down Fifth at the House of Blues...San Diego alt-rock act Reason to Rebel sets up at Soda Bar behind this year’s This Gun Is Human...while funk-master Damon “Dam Funk” Riddick spins a DJ set at the Hideout.
