Nobunny, No Joy, no tickets to Shakey Graves?

...and the best of the rest in San Diego clubs this week

It's Nobunny Monday at Casbah, when the garage-pop lop flops onto the Middletown stage!
It's Nobunny Monday at Casbah, when the garage-pop lop flops onto the Middletown stage!

Sunday 25
Sunday-nite lite: indie-folkies William Fitzsimmons and Jake Phillips split a bill at Casbah...New York darkwave duo MS MR bring their How Does It Feel tour to House of Blues...while Swedish pop-rock four-piece Royal Concept graces the stage at the Irenic after Parade of Lights.

Monday 26
From the Bay Area via the Arizona desert, everyone’s favorite garage-pop jackalope Nobunny hops into Casbah. Bunny’s latest, Secret Songs, is a full-band onslaught of bubblegum-punk and deep-crate-pop mining — a sonic smorgasbord that contains “some of his best work yet” (Pitchfork). Catchy locals Kooties and the Kabbs open this very worthwhile Monday-nighter.... Otherwise: London punks the Vibrators (ca. 1976) plug in at Soda Bar...the Office sets up “tomahawk rockers” the Natives with Geneva Bedlam and La Ayahuasca...and The Pale Emperor, Marilyn Manson, hits House of Blues with his brand of industrial alternative. “Transmedia” artist Emily Lazar, aka September Mourning, up first.

Shoegaze Canada band Diiv spills some Oshin at Casbah on Tuesday.

Tuesday 27
Back to Casbah Tuesday night, where Canada bands Diiv and No Joy drop their beautiful fuzz bombs. I was late coming around to Diiv’s delirious Oshin album with its reverbing voice and same-y sounds, but now I lurv it as a whole. If you haven’t already, you should dive into Oshin. And for fans of the Bloody Valentine/Mary Chain brand, I can’t recommend No Joy enough. Been doing it right here for years. They’re on the Mexican Summer label and worthy of the drop-the-needle-anywhere challenge.... Else on Tuesday: Japanese math-pop act Tricot’s at Soda Bar with Birth Defects and Death Eyes...while Radio Halloran dials in at the Merrow in Hillcrest to deliver L.A.’s shoegazing Cobalt Cranes with locals the Lulls (ex–Ed Ghost Tucker) and Garden Echo.

Intergalactic post-punk act the Membranes find the Hideout on humpnight.

Wednesday 28
Shakey Graves and Tennis sold out the Observatory, which kinda chapped my ass because I had to cut a pretty cool Shakey Graves preview. Is that place giving tickets away, or what?... Anyway, if you absolutely have to hit it humpnight, you’ve got the Membranes at the Hideout. The English post-punk originals returned this year with Dark Matter/Dark Energy, their first in about 18 years and a collection that one reviewer called “the punk version of Dark Side of the Moon”...and from Northampton, Mass, ’90s-inspired alt-rock trio Potty Mouth is at the Soda Bar right up the road. The ladies are touring in support of this year’s self-titled set, which if you hold your head at just the right angle sounds as if they’ve dialed in the Breeders. Locals Garden Echo and Soft Lions open the show, which is free with your RSVP.
