Wild in the streets

Punk rock karaoke, indie-rock dark matter, and an experimental guitar show

Jersey boys Cymbals Eat Guitars bring their brand of indie to Casbah on Thursday.

Post-rock instrumental act This Will Destroy You split the Casbah bill with Cymbals Thursday night.

Thursday 19
Casbah’s culled some indie-rock dark matter for Thursday night, a curious double bill that surprises and then you’re, like, Oh yeah. Singer/songwriter (emphasis on writer) Joseph D’Agostino and his band of Jersey boys Cymbals Eat Guitars will split a bill with Texas post-rock instrumental act This Will Destroy You. Both bands put out excellent records last year, their coming-into-their-own albums, which’d toggle nicely on your shuffle, as D’Agostino’s deconstruction of the Wrens and the Garden State, and reconstruction of his drug-addled past, do with words and creative songform (a lot of critics like the Built to Spill comparison, but I’m inclined to stick with the Wrens) what TWDY do with sonic exploration, both emotional (Explosions in the Sky) and earthly (God Speed). As I’m typing this I’m thinking, Jam these bands together and you get Slint — the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup of post-rock bands. Fans of the brand’d do well to get your hands on Cymbals’ LOSE and/or TWDY’s Another Language. Spend the afternoon with those and then I’ll see you down on Kettner.... Miss the door in Middletown, alt-country (of the nu-grass varietal) festival favorites Trampled by Turtles take the stage at Observatory North Park after HoneyHoney...while that very heavy Bay Area band Saviours and our own ear-bleeding Archons join forces at Soda Bar, which may very well open a faultline Thursday night in City Heights.

Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession) plays a house happening in Del Mar Friday night.

Friday 20
So, blink-182 sold out Soma, surprising everyone over 17...lucky for you I was looking everywhere but there and have devised a tidy little list of healthy alternatives for the grownups: how about a house party in Del Mar? Seriously, you’re invited, and the affair is going to be top-shelf, with performances by Pall Jenkins (you remember him from Three Mile Pilot, Black Heart Procession, and Mr. Tube), Red Rumsey of Unwound, and Sasha Nothingful. There’s also going to be a bunch of artists (including Jenkins’s mom, Anna Zappoli) there showing their latest. All kinds of cool, yeah? Hit up A Ship in the Woods to get in on it.... Also upthatway, Railroad Earth is rolling into Belly Up for two nights of rootsy, granola rock-and-rolla. The Jersey sextet is out to tout their latest, Last of the Outlaws.... Saxy buskers Moon Hooch headline sets at Soda Bar after Dr. Seahorse and Bakkuda. Dave Good got the goods on Moon Hooch for this week’s Of Note, so flip or click there for more on them.... Southern “slumerican” rapper Yelawolf has the mic at House of Blues in advance of his sophomore set, Love Story.... While Cali punk acts the Stitches, the Dogs, and Spent Idols fill a slamdance bill at Til-Two.

Mrs. Henry's not that kind of girl! The blues-rock band headlines a locals-only show at Casbah on Saturday.

Saturday 21
Stay Strange sets up its annual Experimental Guitar show at Soda Bar Saturday night. This year’s performers include Michael Crain, Joileah Concepcion, All the Pretty Horses, Steve Flato, and Hirsch the Machine Hirsch. From the SDXGS’s statement of purpose, they “encourage musicians who have outgrown the limitations of conventional guitar playing. These artists have expanded their technique by using their imagination rather than instruction. Gone are the orthodox chords and standard scales normally attributed to the instrument. A new musical vocabulary of tone and timbre emerges in its place.” Kara-a-a-ng!!!.... Moving right along, I see that Bay Park bar Brick by Brick has Punk Rock Karaoke, which I’ll have you know I’m really really good at, and the band features members of Bad Religion, Circle Jerks, and NOFX. I’m so down, and I call “Wild in the Streets”.... Best of the rest Saturday night’d be Amerikan Bear and Sycamore. They’re splitting a psych ’n’ soul bill at Til-Two...Casbah’s staging a locals-only show with throwback blues-rock acts Mrs. Henry, the Schitzophonics, the Paragraphs, and Erik Canzona & the Narrows...while that heavy-metal happy meal Mac Sabbath takes its Ronald-as-Ozzy shtick to the rurals up at Ramona Mainstage.
