The Joker — and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer — Steve Miller plays bayside at Humphrey's Thursday night!

Thursday 14
Time keeps on slipping slipping slipping...for everybody but Steve Miller, apparently, who railed at a Rock Hall of Fame press officer Friday night, just minutes after being inducted: “No, we’re not going to wrap this up...we’re going to wrap you up.” At the time, Miller was voicing his opinion about the lack of female representation in the Rock Hall and the appalling lack of respect for the artists in the Hall’s unceremonious ceremony. The classic-rock-radio staple boasts one of the best-selling albums of all time (Steve Miller Band’s Greatest Hits 1974–78) and continues to sell out shows wherever he goes, yet the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame asked Miller and his band to pay for their tickets to the event?!? If you miss tickets for Humphrey's proper, as Daniel Powell reported in the Reader’s Waterfront column last week, any dinghy will do ya if you can float it up to their bayside stage. Local power-pop acoustic kitty cat Kinnie Dye will open the show. Good onya, Ms. Dye!.... Best of the rest Thursday night finds country-rock Atlanta band Blackberry Smoke wafting into Belly Up on their Holding All the Roses tour...L.A. pop-punk perennials NOFX hit House of Blues...and borderland punk bands Cruz Radical, Santa Ana Knights, and Slums of the Future will take the Casbah stage in a fundraiser for TJ hardcore quartet DFMK, who lost their band van, “Vanessa,” and all their gear in a roadside fire while on tour up the Cali coast a couple weeks back. Check out our report on the incident, “Vanessa up in flames.” #suckwhammy.

Axl and Slash together again — Guns 'N Roses reunite for Coachella and bring the tour through town in August!

Friday 15
Chad Deal brings back memories of Coachellas past in this week’s Crasher column, “Anti-rave.” The corporate behemoth kicks off two weekends of desert din in Indio Friday night, featuring A$AP Rock, Beach House, Deafheaven, among tons of others, and a Guns ’N Roses reunion show as the cherrybomb on top of this year’s event. If the bootleg snippets of GNR’s recent warm-up set at Troubadour are any indication, Slash and Axl are revved and ready (despite Mr. Rose breaking his foot while hopping around the Troubadour stage — he’s utilizing the “Grohl Throne,” as it should hereby and forthwith be known). Not into the whole bro show out at the Polo Grounds, most of the bands are rock-rolling through town, anyway (even GNR’s 2016 “Not in This Lifetime” tour comes to Qualcomm on Monday, August 22), so keep your eyes peeled to the Reader’s concert board for this week’s Coachella spoils...case in point, lo-fi indie hit Frankie Cosmos (aka Greta Kline, the daughter of actors Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates) plays Ché Café Friday night behind her “spellbinding second record,” Next Thing. I’m listening now, and she’s really interesting. Eskimeaux, Yowler, and Anna McClellan kick it off at the campus collective.... Else on Friday: Queen Nation and Livin’ on a Prayer split a tribute bill at Belly Up...local indie-rock acts Wild Wild Wets, Soft Lions, Some Kind of Lizard, and Fake Tides fill a bill at Casbah...and La Escalera Fest 5 kicks off at Tower Bar Friday and then heads to Tower’s sister club Til-Two on Saturday, and on to Moustache Bar in TJ on Sunday. Bands include Bad Cop/Bad Cop, DFMK, John Cougar Concentration Camp, Get Dead, among many others. Please click to lefest5.laescalerarecords.com/ for all the deets.

The El Vez Punk Rock Revue will school you at Casbah Saturday night!

Saturday 16
Gearing up for All Tomorrow’s Parties 2.0 in Manchester, England, at the end of this month (curated by our own Drive Like Jehu, btw), the “Mexican Elvis,” El Vez, and his punk partners will rock their El Vez Punk Rock Revue for you right here in Middletown, at Casbah on Saturday night. Schizophonics and the Little Richards open the show, making this the gig to get to on Saturday night.... Best of the rest Saturday finds the dark-arts psych-pop ladies of L.A.’s L.A. Witch at the Hideout with Dirty Ghosts and Prism Tats...while English folktronica five-piece Crystal Fighter takes the stage at Belly Up after electro-pop singer Chela.
