Shul of Rock!

Alice Cooper co-headlines a hard-rocker with Mötley Crüe at Viejas Arena Sunday night.

Sunday 20
“All bad things must come to an end” is how the hard-rock staples Mötley Crüe and Alice Cooper describe their final tour together, which rolls through town at Viejas Arena and wraps with three dates at the Staples Center in the Crüe’s hometown of Los Angeles December 28, 30, and 31. Alice Cooper has stated that unlike his bloated tourmates, he has no plans to quit the gig that he has been killing for more than 50 years. He is a vampire, after all. (He probably didn’t say “bloated” either. I make a lot of this stuff up because rock and roll).... Else on Sunday: chillwave producer Slow Magic turns his masked tricks at the Observatory after fellow glo-fi acts Giraffage and Gupi...Philly’s “angsty punk four-piece” Littler’s at Soda Bar with Holling...while from Phoenix, folk-rock five-piece Jared & the Mill join Brumby and Jimmy Ruelas at Casbah.

Soda Bar sets up soul-jazz joint Juice Box Tuesday night!

Monday 21
It’s a Dublin Mob Choppers Country XXXmas at Casbah Monday night, as that “ass kickin’, rig rockin’, tele bangin’, cold beer drinkin’, old schoolin’ REAL COUNTRY” band the Freightshakers roll into town behind Doug C. & the Blacklisted and Stephen Rey. Dublin Mob encourages you to “shine up yer shitkickers and put on your finest Stetson cuz you just may meet your next ex.” Riviera Supper Club’s catering the shindig.... Soda Bar sets up Creepers (Shiv and Daniel of Deafheaven) with Naytronix (Nate of Tuneyards) and Exrays for a night of melodic psych and prog.

Mod-rock quartet Manual Scan headlines sets at Casbah on Wednesday.

Tuesday 22
Shul of Rock! From the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, Hasidic alt-rock act Bulletproof Stockings takes the stage at Casbah behind their hot-off-the-presses and eagerly anticipated debut full-length Homeland Call Stomp. Popular press (New Yorker, Wall Street Journal) tends to make a mess of their female empowerment “agenda” and Jewishness, so I won’t even try to define ’em, but the women assert they can “play anywhere we want,” and they will on this ten-cities-in-ten-days tour. They didn’t even wait until the end of Hanukkah to hit the road!... Best of the rest Tuesday night finds San Diego’s all-star soul-jazz joint Juice Box (Matthew Smith, Ed Kornhauser, Omar Lopez, and Louis Valenzuela) pouring it on at Soda Bar after Struggle and Kid Wilderness...and it’ll be a very Beatles Christmas up at Belly Up when Fab Four tribute Abbey Road takes the stage in their gay Sgt. Pepper’s apparel.

Wednesday 23
The very best of San Diego’s mod-rock scene, Manual Scan and the Bassics, will split a bill at Casbah Wednesday night. Along with the Loons, Manual Scan was a top-billing band (between Urge Overkill and the Reigning Sound!) this month at the Purple Weekend fest in León, Spain. Good on those two local grupos. Be sure to hit up the Manual Scan merch table for their latest, The Pyles Sessions, a set of songs/demos recorded on/for Tim Pyles’s radio show.... French-pop femme fatale Louise Le Hir headlines sets at Soda Bar after Lucky Keith and Roger! Ms. Le Hir’s not really from France, she’s from Tucson, but she sings her desert tendencies with a Francophile’s sense of play. Tasty stuff.... Belly Up stages a Country Christmas Wednesday night, featuring that bundle of Texas TNT, the queen of Western swing, Rosie Flores, along with our own countrypolitan outfits Nancarrow and Brawley.
