Bowie's band

Holy Holy comes to Music Box and the best of the rest in San Diego clubs this week

Bowie's backing band Holy Holy pays tribute to the Thin White Duke at Music Box Sunday night!

D.C. dance band Funk Ark lands at Soda Bar on Sunday.

Sunday 24
Longtime David Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti and his band Holy Holy (named for an old Bowie single) hit the Music Box Sunday night. Visconti had been with Bowie as producer/player since his 1969 self-titled release right up through his Blackstar farewell record. According to tour reports, Visconti has a passion for — and firsthand experience with — Bowie’s Man Who Sold the World album and his Ziggy era.... “The words ‘funk’ and ‘ark’ imply some kind of salvage of the old school,” writes Dave Good about the Funk Ark, but not so. Though the D.C. collective doesn’t dismiss the George Clinton “school of chops,” the band has honed a jazzy Afrobeat dance set that promises to shake Soda Bar to the ground Sunday night.... Best of the rest finds cover bands the Who Generation, Heart Love Alive, and Journeymen aping their classic-rock-radio faves at House of Blues...while local punk-rawk supergroup Death Eyes (Death Crisis + Rats Eyes) kicks off their springtime tour up the Left Coast at Whistle Stop. Read our “Record Dust redux” report in this week’s issue, and then go bend Blackie’s ear about Records Collecting Dust II. He got Page Hamilton, Walter Schreifels, and Ian fucking MacKaye to sit for interviews.

Hard-rocking Canada band Black Mountain's at Casbah on Tuesday!

Monday 25
Los Angeles–via–Nashville dream-pop duo Magic Wands takes the stage at Soda Bar behind this year’s Jupiter, a record that unashamedly — and effectively — mines ’80s Brit pop like Lush, Cure, and the Banshees. Shoegaze-y tourmates Drinking Flowers and local indie kids Future Age set it up.... This month’s “Undercover at the Office” collective tackles new-wave greats the Talking Heads, Devo, and Violent Femmes. This is the favored local event’s two-year anniversary party and should be a ballzout blast.... While across the intersection at Bar Pink Tori Roze & the Hot Mess play their monthly Soultry Monday sets at the North Park hot spot.

Tuesday 26
The hard-rock Canada band Black Mountain’s latest Jagjaguwar record, titled IV — a cheeky response to all them Led Zeppelin comparisons? — garnered a middling 7.5 rating from the tastemakers at Pitchfork last week for popping and progging up their favored classic-rock works. Dryw Keltz has a chat with the band’s big-bearded frontman, Stephen McBean, in advance of Tuesday night’s show at Casbah in this week’s “Dispensary rock” Blurt.... Up in the Heights Tuesday night, Hideout sets up NYC rock-roll quartet Dirty Fences with Flytraps and Kids in Heat. Clicking around last year’s Full Tramp disc, it’s clear why the Fences are NYC favorites — their tunes are fueled by Ramones rhythm and vocal style and Strokes jangle.

Casbah stages novelty-rock performer Har Mar Superstar on humpnight.

Wednesday 27
I’m pressed up against the gutter again, so real quik, humpnight hits like this: Novelty, nudity, R&B — Sean Tillman’s crooning alter-ego Har Mar Superstar will split a bill with “Potland chunk-rock” band White Fang at Casbah, which promises to be alternately hilarious and awkward. Measure your head before ordering.... Else: Vancouver’s Juno-nominated electro-pop dance duo Humans hit Soda Bar behind Noontide Wednesday night...while Texas-bred indie folkies Jamestown Revival roll into Belly Up behind their latest Americana set, Utah.
