Soda Bar sets up pop-punk trio the Dollyrots Thursday night.

Thursday 29
Pop-punk trio the Dollyrots are one of the few things we have to thank George W. for. It was Bush’s election in 2000 that prompted high school sweethearts Kelly Ogden (bass, vocals) and Luis Cabezas (guitar) to drop out, head west, and form a band. Ogden: “Bush had won, and Luis and I were like, ‘The world’s probably gonna end.... We have no future anyways, so let’s just be in a rock band!’” Since their last San Diego visit, the Dollyrots left Joan Jett’s Blackheart Records and formed their own label, Arrested Youth. They made a baby, made a record called Barefoot and Pregnant, and toured the U.K. with the Buzzcocks. Not too shabby for new parents. The busy Dollys will headline sets at Soda Bar Thursday night after like-minded locals the Touchies and Pleasure Fix.... Else: nu-grass act the Devil Makes Three will wrap up their two-night stint at House of Blues behind their very recommendable I’m a Stranger Here record...from Morgantown, West Virginia, stoner-metal trio Karma to Burn lights up Brick by Brick after Sierra, Amigo, and Mojave Green...and one-man jam band Keller “K-dub” Williams splits a bill at Belly Up with festival funksters the Motet. Dave Good gives you the goods on the Motet in this week’s “Of Note,” so flip or click there for more on them.

Dave, Phil, and the Guilty Ones take the stage at Belly Up on Friday.

Friday 30
Belly Up books the Guilty Ones Friday night. Dave and Phil Alvin’s roots-rock outfit is touring in support of their new Yep Roc record Common Ground...the Songs of Big Bill Broonzy. This tribute to the Alvins’ mutual touchstone is the brothers’ first collaboration in 30 years, since the acrimonious split of L.A. greats the Blasters. And you can hear a little Blasters in these tracks, as the sibling rivals haul Broonzy classics through punk and rock to blues, soul, and country. Jersey boy and Yep Roc labelmate Jonah Tolchin opens the show, which for fans of the brand would be the gig to see this weekend.... Best of the rest Friday Night: rapper Paul Wall’s at UCSD’s hip-hop hangout Porter’s Pub behind his latest, Po Up Poet...Soundiego Live’s hosting a freebie at Casbah that features New York-via-Squaremont indie hits We Are Scientists, with psych-n-blues locals Schitzophonics and electro-pop up-and-comer Nicky Venus...New Zealand pop star Brook Fraser and L.A.’s “electro-romantics” Dark Waves will split a bill at the Irenic.... Speaker in Reverse plug in at Whistle Stop after Chateau plays their debut show...and Soda Bar sets up a woozy one, with Philly-based gazers Nothing, Bay Area staple Tony Molina, and our own dream-wavers Witness 9.

Hip-hop hit Wale washes up in North Park Saturday night.

Saturday 31
Saturday night finds the papacy-approved punker Patti Smith at the Balboa Theatre downtown. Yes, Ms. Smith, who once sang “Jesus died for somebody’s sins but not mine,” was invited to play the Vatican this past Christmas by that cool Catholic, Pope Francis. The Word According to Patti: “I wrote those lines when I was 20...really, it was a declaration of self, not so much about Jesus.” The Balboa show wraps up Smith’s tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of her breakout and still-stellar record Horses. As of this typing, there are some scattered seats available and, according to the theater’s website, “Sometimes tickets from the venue may become available closer to the event.” Check in soon, and often.... Miss the doors downtown: hip-hop hit Wale will be at the North Park Theatre in advance of this year’s Album About Nothing, after Audio Push, the West Coast rap duo responsible for the dance craze called “Jerkin’”...the von Trapps (yup, actual von Trapp singers) will be at Bar Pink behind their Pink Martini–assisted platter Dream a Little Dream...if that doesn’t float your boat (and I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t), L.A.’s trad soul-jazz band the Rebirth will be right ’round the bend at Seven Grand...and the reunited, reinvigorated pop-punk trio New Addiction takes the stage at Soda Bar after the hard-rocking Gods of Science.
