Deafheaven, Deerhunter, and a tribute to Weller

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

In from the fading frontier of Coachella, indie-rock Atlanta band Deerhunter takes the stage at the Observatory Friday night!

Heady metal band Deafheaven takes the stage at Casbah on Thursday.

Thursday 21
I’m told black-metal purists consider Deafheaven “hipster metal.” I don’t know any black-metal purists, but I think I get where they’re coming from. Deafheaven’s sonic blasts and scream-singing come with humanized, earthbound lyrics and haircuts. And with 2013’s cathartic Sunbather record, some success outside the black-metal genre. Hell, they just played Coachella behind the well-received New Bermuda, a record Pitchfork named one of 2015’s 50 best for “unabashedly treating the roar of electric guitars as a holy experience.” Isn’t it? Deafheaven jacks in at Casbah after L.A.-based industrial duo Youth Code Thursday night.... Best of the rest: the nu-grass Venice Beach big band Dustbowl Revival hits the Hideout...“Electro-swing” producer Parov Stelar plays Observatory North Park...and Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s at Belly Up behind frontman Ruban Nielson’s confessional record Multi-Love, a musical chronicle of his year in a polyamorous relationship. Maybe he should call the group Unknown Mormon Orchestra.

Better than a juke-joint jukebox — alterna-tonk band Rio Peligroso plays the Riviera on Friday night.

Friday 22
In from the Fading Frontier, Bradford Cox and his Atlanta band of indie-rockers and psych-poppers Deerhunter shake off the desert dust of Coachella and plug in at Observatory North Park Friday night. If last year’s Fading Frontier wasn’t your favorite Deerhunter disc, you’ll be happy to hear, the word out of Indio is that the band’s high-water mark, 2010’s Halcyon Digest, still plays an instrumental role in their live show.... Else: You want fries with that? Fast-food Sabbath act Mac Sabbath headlines sets by local indie hits Kids in Heat, the Kabbs, and Shady Francos at the Music Box in Little Italy...NYC thrash-metal trio Prong plays Brick by Brick with Kultier, Redmond, and Dead Serial Killers...L.A.’s scuzz-pop four-piece Shark Toys joins Boston’s Bent Shapes, who will play “hyphy nrrrd pop for kids on the skids” at South Park bar Whistle Stop...the always entertainin’ rock ’n’ tonk band Rio Peligroso plays the Turquoise Room at Riviera Supper Club in La Mesa...while our ol’ San Luis friends Wordsauce take the stage at Davina’s in O’side for a night of their infectious funk-hop.

She-shredders Black Sabbitch rock Ozzy era Sabbath at Soda Bar on Saturday!

Saturday 23
Reader contributor and local mod-rock bandaholic Bart Mendoza (Manual Scan, the Shambles, True Stories) and a stable of San Diego staples will pay tribute to “the Modfather,” Paul Weller (The Jam, Style Council), at Bar Pink Saturday night. Knowing Mendoza, this will be a top-shelf lineup that’ll do Weller v. well...while there’s another sorta tribute at Soda Bar, where the all-female band Black Sabbitch rocks Ozzy-era Sabbath and GayC/DC does its fabulous take on, um, cock rock.... Old-school Austin street punks (ca. 1995) Lower Class Brats turn up at Til-Two with Channel 3 and the Widows Saturday night. The Brats have an Anglophilic bent, taking a bit of sound and snot from the school of Oi! and bit of style and substance from A Clockwork Orange.... Else: 25-year-strong L.A. hip-hop trio Dilated Peoples rock the mics at Observatory North Park behind their latest Rhymesayers release, Directors of Photography...while Belly Up stages the Ann Wilson Thing. The Heart singer sings “the blues with a rock edge,” she says. “I love the blues. The Ann Wilson Thing gives me an opportunity to rock the blues up close and personal.” No denying those pipes.
