Stones rolling into Petco

Plus GBH, Smiths Undercover, Gary Wilson, and Mystic Braves in San Diego clubs this week

Lounge-pop oddity Gary Wilson will take you on a "Sea Cruise" Tuesday night at the Hideout.

Chilean psych pop duo Holydrug Couple roll into Whistle Stop Sunday night.

Sunday 24
“The master of the pan flute,” Zamfir, plays a three-hour tribute to the whimsical tunes of Gilbert and Sullivan at Petco Park Sunday night. Tour reports say the 74-year-old Romanian pop star “totally shreds The Mikado.” English rock act the Rolling Stones is also on the bill.... Chilean psych-rock duo Holydrug Couple bring this year’s Moonlust to Whistle Stop. According to the Sacred Bones label’s one-sheet, Moonlust is a collection of “streamlined hook delivery machines.” I’m listening as I type. It’s warm and fuzzy psych, like Air. Fans of the French-pop brand should check these guys out. Local shoegaze group Witness 9 opens the show.... Couple of Sunday-night moshers this week, as English street-punk four-piece GBH join our own Authentic Sellout and Revulot Chix to fill a hardcore bill at Casbah...and there’s more hardcore in store at Soda Bar, as Detroit punk pioneers Negative Approach headline sets by Bishops Green, Rat City Riot, and Rail Them to Death (ex-Bumbklaat).... Up at the U, “tha Rula,” NYC rapper Slick Rick, will be rocking the eye patch at Porter’s Pub behind his latest Def Jam disc, Icon.

Goth-rock gals L.A. Witch hit the Hideout on Monday.

Monday 25
Lost angels L.A. Witch haunt the Hideout Monday night. The dark-psych trio has goth-rock in its DNA and on its eponymous debut EP, which L.A. Weekly called “a three-track amalgamation of haunted surf rock, road-trip blues, and ’60s-sounding psychedelia.” D.C.’s “technicolor x-pop” four-piece Pree opens the show...and if you need a change of scene or sound, right up the street at Soda Bar the singer/songwriter and “classically trained musician” Lo-Fang will take the stage behind his well-received 4AD release, Blue Film.... Else: it’s the final Monday of the month and time for Undercover at the Office. This month Lauren Scheff builds a band to take on the Smiths...while Nashville-based indie band Kopecky headlines Anti-Monday at Casbah after Armors and Spero. According to the New York Times, “If you like Fleetwood Mac, try Kopecky...intelligent and a bit edgy, but still mainstream.” I don’t know about your house, but in the Monk House, “mainstream” is a slur: e.g., “Dude, your mashed potatoes are so mainstream”; i.e., Kopecky is the mashed potatoes of indie rock.

Soda Bar stages East Coast rock-rollers Dead Heavens Wednesday night.

Tuesday 26
Lounge-pop oddity Gary Wilson plays the Hideout on Tuesday. Mr. Wilson, who “often performs with mannequin parts, duct tape, and cellophane props as he writhes, singing on the floor,” put out a single last year on local Rita Records called “Sea Cruise,” which according to the Reader’s record-release roundupper Jay Allen Sanford, is an advance cut from his upcoming full-length Alone with Gary Wilson. Vats, Saka Sal, and Sleeping Ghost open the show...while multi-instrumentalist Ilan Rubin’s New Regime takes over Casbah behind this year’s Exhibit B release after Pumphouse and Jara.

Wednesday 27
Stoked to see singer/guitarist Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand) is back to banding. His new group is called Dead Heavens and, believe it or not, the hardcore hero’s gone strummy-thrummy classic-rocker — and to good effect. Get to the webs and check out lead single “History in My Hands.” Dead Heavens hits Soda Bar with Lowlands and Other Bodies Wednesday night.... Best of the rest’d be psych-rockers Mystic Braves at Casbah with Muscle Beech and Creation Factory...local rock-roll trio Cult Vegas is at Brick by Brick with the Tortured and Roman Watchdogs...while Atlanta beats queen Ciara has the mic at House of Blues behind her latest wicked explicit disc, Jackie.
