Hello, hair on the back of my neck

Johnette Napolitano comes to town, as does Mystic Braves and Destruction Unit

Former Concrete Blonde bassist/singer Johnette Napolitano takes the stage at Casbah Thursday night!
Former Concrete Blonde bassist/singer Johnette Napolitano takes the stage at Casbah Thursday night!
The Flytraps will take Octagrape's place at Thursday night's In-Ko-Pah Rewind at Til-Two.

Thursday 10
Former Concrete Blonde singer/bassist Johnette Napolitano has been leading a quiet life out in Joshua Tree with her horses, dogs, and found art, reflecting on the sorts of things that ended up in her essay collection from 2013, Rough Mix, or on this year’s acoustic EP, Scarred. She hangs her art in L.A. galleries these days and tours when she can get someone to tend her horses. She’ll play a couple of coastal dates this week, Thursday night at Casbah and then next Monday at SOHO in Santa Barbara. Napolitano’s shows get personal, chatting about as much as she sings, but when she sings — Hello, hair on the back of my neck! A rocker at her core, Napolitano likes to blow out the acoustic and give her pipes something to play with. Frequent tourmate, the singer/“sonic painter” and former frontwoman of Boston band Face to Face Laurie Sargent will open the show.... Else: from Kansas City, MO, emo act the Get Up Kids get up to it at Observatory North Park. The Kids are celebrating 20 years of recording and touring, though they haven’t done the former in about four or five years...Til-Two will host “In-Ko-Pah 2 Rewind,” featuring L.A. act the Flytraps (Octagrape had to cancel due to prior commitments, but what a fill-in!), along with local faves the Fink Bombs, New Kinetics, and Mission Creeps...while Hocus, Bloodflowers, and Processor fill a pissah hard-rock bill at the Merrow in Hillcrest.

SDMA winners Dead Feather Moon will headline a locals-only show at Belly Up on Friday.

Friday 11
Belly Up’s got a tasty trio of local bands Friday night, featuring Dead Feather Moon with Trouble in the Wind and Inspired and the Sleep. Dead Feather Moon is a two-time winner of a San Diego Music Award, one for best alternative rock album (2012) and one for best alternative rock band (2014) ­— pretty good for country-fried folkies. Jes kiddin’. Categories shmategories, Dead Feather Moon is — as they should be — the pride of North County. Go see/hear why.... Psychedelic Silver Lakers Mystic Braves play Casbah after our own Muscle Beech, Creation Factory, and Amerikan Bear. Mystic Braves, a onetime San Diego band called Blackfeet Braves, is touring in support of their latest organ-grinder, Desert Island.... Comic Paula Poundstone, the wise-cracking panelist of NPR’s always hilarious and edumacational Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me, has the mic at Humphreys by the Bay.... Staying on the watery side of the 5, Pacific Beach bar 710 is staging a loud local bill, as psych ’n’ soul bands Broken Stems, Red Wizard, and Desert Suns will keep the Crystal Pier cottages tossing and turning.

Deep-space thrash act Destruction Unit hit the Hideout on Saturday!

Saturday 12
Deep space thrash! Get in on this, Crawler follower: proggy hardcore band Destruction Unit plays the Hideout after San Diego’s synthy A/V team Die Misbildungen des Menschen on Saturday night. D-Unit’s an Arizona collective fronted by former Reatard Ryan Rousseau, whose taste for space-rock collides head on with his punk roots on their first two discs, Void and Deep Trip — “grinding washes of wah pedal and modulated distortion evoke misanthropic freakouts and crises of pataphysical identity.” Sometimes Pitchfork out-Pitchforks itself. That particular sentence made me giggle, so I couldn’t not share. They are touring in advance of this year’s anticipated Negative Feedback Resistor record, which is due to drop next Friday. Meet me at the Hideout for the primer.... Best of the rest Saturday night: our music-featured band this week, Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects, will celebrate the release of their new Latin dub disc, No Wrongs, No Rights, at Casbah with the always-entertaining Creepy Creeps and Tropical Popsicle...Robben Ford’s a blues-rock guitarist with a jazz problem, and a capital-P player! The five-time Grammy nominee is out to tout this year’s Into the Sun record and will play a date at the Backstage Lounge, which is inside the house at Humphreys on Shelter Island.
