Elvis, Hunx, Vinyl Junkies

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

Multimedia event The Seth Bogart Show hits the Hideout Friday night.

British singer/songwriter Elvis Costello rolls solo into the Balboa Theatre downtown Thursday night.

Thursday 7
Grammy-winner, Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Famer, and memoirist (with the release last year of Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink) Elvis Costello embarks on his “Detour” this week, a string of dates in the Western states in which the veteran British singer/songwriter plays his unique brand of new-wave pub rock in solo acoustic sets. Costello takes the stage at the Balboa Theatre downtown after Larkin Poe.... Best of the rest Thursday night: Soda Bar drops Acid Dad after Rever and Cult Babies. Acid Dad’s a psych-punk four-piece out of Brooklyn whose debut EP, Let’s Plan a Robbery, has gotten more East Coast ink-per-track than most proper full-lengths...from Dublin, Ireland, indie folkies Little Green Cars roll into the Irenic with a trunk full of Ephemera, their new Glassnote album. Singer/songwriter John Mark Nelson opens that show...while psychedelic jam band moe. noodles at the Observatory North Park...and Tolkien-rocking Swedes Amon Amarth set up their stacks at Brick by Brick to bring you the melodic death metal of this year’s conceptual Metal Blade record Jomsviking.

Alt-rockers Third Eye Blind play the Observatory Friday night.

Friday 8
Friday night feels like Saturday morning at the Hideout as former hairdresser Hunx (of Hunx & His Punx) and his Seth Bogart Show stages its wacky theatrics and fine-art wares with live music by bubblegum band Las Robertas. The multimedia Seth Bogart Show has been compared to a traveling Pee-wee’s Playhouse of Bogart’s colorful sculptures, videos, and handmade Tees. Las Robertas is an Art Fag trio out of Costa Rica touring in support of their latest indie-pop offering, The Feel.... Former Smith Westerns frontman Cullen Omori’s at Casbah behind his solo debut, New Misery, about which he states, “It’s kind of a long-form statement ­— this is what I am or was dealing with during my time after being in that buzz band.” Living Hour sets him up.... After a six-year layoff, the 25-year-old alt-rock outfit Third Eye Blind, helmed by frontman/songwriter Stephan Jenkins, returned this year with new disc Dopamine. Jenkins has stated this will be the band’s final full-length, opting in the future for a singles-only format. He speaks with the Reader’s Andrew Hamlin in this week’s “Third eye open” Blurt about writer’s block, surfing Black’s, and their show at the Observatory.... Else on Friday: Drew Andrews’s piano-poptronic band Bit Maps hits Whistle Stop with Kenseth Thibideau and La Chateau...those acoustic hard-rock hillbillies Hayseed Dixie set up at Soda Bar after our own Screamin’ Yeehaws...while Bay Area Burger Records band SWMRS hit the beach in La Jolla to play Ché Café with Party Baby. SWMRS is touring in support of their new one, Drive North, their first record not produced by drummer Joey's dad, Billie Joe Armstrong. FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper was at the boards for this one.

Casbah stages Canadian country singer/songwriter Lindi Ortega Saturday night.

Saturday 9
It’s another Vinyl Junkies Saturday of beer swiggin’ and crate diggin’ at Casbah. Doors from 11a to 5p, with food from Lefty’s and tunes courtesy of Jesse Flores, Mike Vallejo, Mario Rubalcaba, Vaughn Avakian, and Al Howard...and then on Saturday night at the Middletown mainstay, Canada’s country-fried chanteuse Lindi Ortega takes the stage after the Walcotts and our own Liquorsmiths.... Up in the Heights Saturday night is a killer locals-only show at Til-Two, where Hiroshima Mockingbirds (featuring members of New Kinetics and Soft Lions) will make their debut sharing the stage with blues-bent psych trio Schitzophonics and doom-pop duo Gloomsday. And as if that wasn’t enough, DJs Anja and Mike Stax (Loons) share the decks with none other than the Woggles’ Mighty Manfred...and San Dago ska-punk band Midnight Track plays a record-release deal for their debut, Don’t Be Proud of Me, at Tower Bar after Hathcocks, Kitty Plague, and Strangely Strange.
