Difford and Tillbrook play an acoustic set of Squeeze at House of Blues Sunday night!

Sunday 15
Acoustic Squeeze! Come get some “Black Coffee in Bed,” “Pulling Mussels,” “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” and “Tempted” when English pop-rock duo Difford & Tilbrook put on a singer/songwriter clinic at House of Blues.... From L.A., “quasi-glam” female band Puro Instinct (ex-Pearl Harbor) play Soda Bar on Sunday. Sisters Piper and Sky Kaplan play a shoegaze take on retro beach pop on their debut Headbangers in Ecstasy. Should be a perfect pairing with our own odd-pop player Gary Wilson and his Blind Dates.... Best of the rest Sunday night finds New York alt-rockers X Ambassador playing this year’s VHS at the Observatory...goth-pop acts Victoriana and Drab Majesty split a bill at Whistle Stop...while Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, better known as just Doyle from Lodi, New Jersey, hits Brick by Brick with his brand of “monster metal” after Chamber Sixx, They Feed at Night, and Grim Imperials.

"Quasi-glam" sister band Puro Instinct play their fuzzy take on beach pop at Soda Bar on Sunday.

Monday 16
Monday nite lite: Soda Bar sets up Miniapple new-wave group Strange Names with like-minded locals Line & Circle. Strange Names is touring in support of this year’s dance-pop disc Use Your Time Wisely...alt-rock Canada band City & Colour delivers this year’s If I Should Go Before You to House of Blues after Nawlins indie-folkies Hurray for the Riff Raff...French comic/actor/pop singer Gad Elmelah’s “in English” at the Irenic...while Will Driskill plays his “loudish guitar music” as the Anomaly on Anti-Monday night at Casbah after Captain Viejo and the Sinclairs.

Greek goth-pop band Keep Shelly in Athens headlines sets at Casbah on Tuesday,

Tuesday 17
The English new-wave group Psychedelic Furs is probably best known for its “Pretty in Pink” theme to the John Hughes teen flick of the same name. The hit list is much deeper for club kids of the 1980s, who will surely pack the dance floor at Belly Up for live and loud renditions of “Ghost in You,” “Love My Way,” and “Heartbreak Beat.” Max & the Moon open the show.... Else: The Guardian says Greek chillwave group Keep Shelly in Athens “will make you happy to feel sad.” They play Casbah with Different Sleep and, appropriately enough, Chill Pill on Tuesday...Swedish swing band the Movits! and Chicago’s funky-fun hip-hop troupe Sidewalk Chalk split a bill at the Irenic...while Radio Halloran dials in up-and-coming locals Cult Vegas, the Bassics, and Midways at the Merrow.

Wednesday 18
Out of room, so real quik, humpnight hits like this: Tom Waits meets Thelonius Monk in New York composer Josh Weinstein’s Junkyard Tavernacle, the “genre-bending blues, rock, and spoken-word” band that pulls into the Loft at UCSD after local experimental soul singer Mimi Zulu... the Lulls (ex–Ed Ghost Tucker), Ditches (ex-Deadphones), and Gooon (ex–Emerald Rats) serve up some locally grown ’lectric gooodness at Casbah...while Steeltown rapper Mac Miller’s at House of Blues behind well-received number three, GO:OD AM, his Billboard bounding (#4!) major-label debut, which finds Mac shrugging off his “frat rap” trap as he battles through drug abuse and depression. For reals.
