Popsicle punk

Go old-school with dear old dad and the Misfits, Slaughter & the Dogs, Gang Green, and Guttermouth

Not your dad's Jersey boys...or maybe they are! Horror punk band Misfits invade Observatory North Park Father's Day night!

Sunday 21
Happy Father’s Day, Popsicle! Why don’t you and dear old dad go check out his favorite horror-punk band, Misfits, when they take the stage at Observatory North Park on Sunday after She Demons and D.I. Couple those tix with Project 1950 on vinyl and I don’t care how old you are, your allowance is so back on.... Maybe pops is into old-school street punk. We’ve got real-old-school, as Slaughter & the Dogs set up at Soda Bar after Briggs and Santa Ana Knights. According to the Soda site, “Slaughter & the Dogs exploded onto the British music scene in 1976 at the now legendary Manchester Free Trade Hall gig with the Sex Pistols, which was to change musical history forever”...and we’ve got not-that-old-school, as Huntington Beach–based skate-punk band Guttermouth (ca. 1980something) drops in at Til-Two after Skipjack and Future Crooks...or — OR — Orgone’s at Casbah with the Nth Power. Big bands. Party bands. Heavy, raw, adrenaline-fueled funk and sweat-dripping soul bands.... Sleeper sets’d be Portland bootgaze group Is/Is at Tower Bar after our own Gloomsday and Wild Honey...proggy psych-rock locals Astra stack ’em at Brick by Brick after loud and proud Encinitas acts Sacri Monte and Monarch...while British alt-rockers World Party (“Ship of Fools”) sail into Solana Beach to play Belly Up.

From Boston, Taang! Records' hardcore hits Gang Green infect the Soda on Monday.

Monday 22
Older...Budweiser. From Boston, Taang! Records roustabouts Gang Green roll into town on Monday. Beantown’s best beer-soaked hardcore band may be down to one man (the man! Chris “full-tilt full-time” Doherty) and a band of fill-ins, but according to tour reports, the kids are killing it! Gang Green will headline sets at Soda Bar after Santa Claus, Christ Killer, and Shark Blood get the room revved.... Otherweisers: London’s neo-soul septet Jungle, tuned to “midtempo 1970s-style funk” (see worldwide hit “Busy Earnin’”), visit Observatory North Park...while “alpha-male-punk” four-piece the Ravagers of Baltimore (too soon?) take the Tower Bar after our own Kids in Heat and Dead on the Wire.

Throwback folk-rocking solo roller A.A. Bondy plays Casbah Wednesday night with like-minded local Jimmy Ruelas.

Tuesday 23
So, Songkick shows the Rugburns — yeah, the “Hitchhiker Joe” guys — reuniting for a night at NoPark hot spot Bar Pink on Tuesday. But apparently nobody’s told the bar or the ’Burns. Just popped over to poltzdotcom, where Steve confirms the date with a “One night only — Woot woot!” You can rely on a Poltz Woot woot! A Poltz Woot woot! means business.... Miss the door to that (and that, my friends, will sell out, mark my incredulous words), from L.A., Christian-rock indie kids the Eagle Rock Gospel Singers continue their Tuesday residency at Casbah, joined this week by funk soul brother Stevie and his Hi-Stax.

Wednesday 24
Humpnight’s a three-corndog night at the Del Mar Fairgrounds! The L.A. radio-rock quintet Three Dog Night grouped in 1967 and since has turned in 21 Top 40 hits. Who knew? I can name three: “Joy to the World” (of course, anyone who’s ever had a Coke...), “Mama Told Me Not to Come,” and “Shambala.” Hey Facebook, what’s your Three Dog Night IQ?... Whilst in town, folk-rocking guitar wranglers A.A. Bondy and Jimmy Ruelas split a singer/songer bill at Casbah. C u @ the clubs.

Update: Contrary to Steve Poltz's "one night only" post about the Rugburns reunion at Bar Pink on Tuesday the 23rd, they're playing at Java Joes on the 24th (with Jose Sinatra, who's on his "farewell" tour) and on the 25th (with Jeff Berkley), according to Java's booker, who posted both shows on the Reader site yesterday. The Bar Pink website still only shows their regular Tiki Tuesday event on the 23rd, so it's anybody's guess whether the 'Burns will really show up there too ----
