Acid Mothers, Sheer Mag, the Damned

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

Out of a Philadelphia basement: Sheer Mag makes it to Coachella — and Casbah on Monday night!

Noise-rock Japan band Acid Mothers Temple land at Soda Bar on Sunday!

Sunday 17
Soda Bar stages Japanese noise-rock pioneers Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. on Sunday. Freakout guitarist Kawabata Makoto has been the only constant in the collective’s 20-year career, which this year saw the release of its 150th album, Wake to a New Dawn of Another Astro Era. I’m exaggerating 150, but not by much. Makoto’s massive mane should be pictured next to “prolific” in the dictionary. Candy-bar bands Mounds and Joy will open the show.... Long Island–based indie-folkie Laura Stevenson (of Bomb the Music Industry!) plays Casbah behind her latest Don Giovanni disc, Cocksure. Crying and Chris Ferren set her up.

Monday 18
A coupla Coachella standouts will share the stage at Casbah’s Anti-Monday gig this week, when DC notable Mary Timony’s tight new trio Ex Hex and Philadelphia’s best new basement band Sheer Mag join our own lo-fi psych outfit Ditches at the Middletown mainstay. This is one worth calling in sick on Tuesday for. Not condoning, just saying it’d be worth it.... Another fun one Monday finds SanFran chamber-pop band Foxtails Brigade marching on Soda Bar after Shades McCool and Noble War.

Goth-punk pioneers the Damned bring the creepy cabaret to Belly Up on Tuesday!

Tuesday 19
Forty-years-strong goth-punk band the Damned do Belly Up Tuesday night. The English act, fronted by dapper cabaret-style crooner and sole constant member Dave Vanian, will play a slot at this year’s Coachella. For a primer or a reminder of what makes them great, check out new rock doc The Damned: Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead. San Diego’s organ-grinding surf-punk band Creepy Creeps open the show.... Around town on Tuesday: the Merrow in Hillcrest stages soul-funk supergroup Juice Box after Fistfights with Wolves and Abstrack...while the Hideout in City Heights has hard-rocking locs Profit Heist headlining sets by Young Wants and Fictitious Dishes.

Wednesday 20
The Wild Nothing show sold out Casbah, but humpnight has a handful of equally interesting gigs worth checking out...for inst., SanFran band Naked Lights (feat. members of Tristeza) roll into Whistle Stop with Chicago’s Negative Scanner for a night of experimental art rock...English electronic-rock trio the Big Pink play Soda Bar...while right down the road from Soda, the Bay Area–based folktronica artiste Mikey Maramag, aka Blackbird Blackbird, lands at the Hideout Hideout after British producers Chad Valley and Manatee Commune.
