...and Wheezer's bringing up the rear

L.A. alt-rock act closes out the season at Del Mar on Sunday...and the best of the rest in San Diego clubs this week

From Philadelphia, piano-pounding band Man Man play Casbah on Wednesday night!

L.A. alt-rockers Weezer close out the concert season at Del Mar on Sunday.

Sunday 6
So, yeah, Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power, is back to touring since her health scares and has sold out Belly Up Sunday night. Good on the “sadcore” sister...if you missed the tix to that, a couple exits down the 5, L.A. alt-rock vets Weezer will be closing out this season’s Del Mar track concerts after the day’s races. Critics and fans agreed to disagree over last year’s Everything Will Be Alright in the End, but I think we all concur Weezer crushes it live and they always light up the race place.... Guitarist/singer Matt Mondanile has been fronting Ducktails since before his other band, Real Estate, hit the international market. Ducktails is touring in support of this year’s well-received St. Catherine. The “hypnagogic-pop” collection is out now via Domino Records. L.A. indie trio Regal Degal and our own soultronica act Hills Like Elephants will open the Casbah show. I looked up “hypnagogic” so we’d all know, it’s “the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep.” Rock and roll!

Hypnagogic-pop act Ducktails play Casbah on Sunday.

Monday 7
The Hideout conjures bedroom-pop Seattle act Craft Spells on Monday. Main man Justin Paul Vallesteros and his fellow “sons of Bryan Ferry” are touring in support of last year’s very listenable, if a bit narcotic, Nausea. L.A. darkwaver Derek Page, aka Victoriana, opens the show.... Right up the street, Soda Bar sets up pop singer/songwriter Reagan James after Jara and Natalie Emmons. James, a Texas native who had Kelly Clarkson as a babysitter, was a featured performer on TV talent show The Voice in 2014.

Tuesday 8
Dave Good opened my ears this week with his Of Notable show, Finnish folk band Steve ’n’ Seagulls. The rootsy dudes play metal covers with their old-timey instruments and four-part harmonies. Nashville Americana act Great Peacock up first at Soda Bar.... Otherwise: “two homies making tunes and eggs on the regz,” from New York, slop-pop duo Diet Cig lights up at the Hideout...while indie-pop Canada band Young Empires and the O.C.’s alt-rock quartet Armors split a bill at Casbah.

Finnish folkies Steve 'n' Seagulls land at Soda bar on Tuesday.

Wednesday 9
Piano-pounding experimental rock band Man Man takes the stage at Casbah Wednesday night. The Philly-based band broke onto the Billboard charts with their last record, On Oni Pond, which was tagged as “hook-focused” and “accessible” by those in the know. Both no-no’s for “experimental” artists. Unless they’re experimenting with being entertaining and, y’know, successful. Man Man frontman Honus Honus and this year’s band are touring with NYC art punk and harmonium thrasher Shilpa Ray.... Else: Psychedelic Furs (“Ghost in You”) and the Church (“Under the Milky Way”) play a new-wave date at the Observatory North Park...South Park bar Whistle Stop hosts Drew Andrews and his “cyborg-pop” band Bit Maps. It’s a record-release show for their debut On Demand Living...and John Hiatt and the Taj Mahal Trio split a Grammy-decorated blues-rock bill at the Balboa Theatre downtown.
