Nightowls, Schizos, Violators, and Maniacs

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

Good as Gold, Austin soul-rockers the Nightowls split a bangin' bill with garage-wreckers the Schizophonics at Soda Bar Sunday night!

Surfy psych-pop trio the Gloomies will play the inaugural Luigipalooza at the favored pizza place on 25th in Golden Hill.

Sunday 7
Luigipalooza hits Golden Hill Sunday afternoon at Luigi’s pizzeria on 25th. Bands include Gloomies, Take Offense, Tiltwheel, Drug Wars, and more...walk off all that pizza and beer afterward by strolling up 30th to Whistle Stop, where Kansas-based singer/songwriter Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, plays the South Park bar behind this year’s Domino disc, Gumption.... Best of the rest Sunday night finds Texas soul big band the Nightowls joining our own Schizophonics for a rumpshaker at Soda Bar...the hard-rocking Sub-Tropics and Steel Cranes split a bill at Tower Bar...while Sub Pop’s hip-hop Seattle act Shabazz Palaces spins a DJ set at Casbah after our own DJ Artsitic.

Monday 8
You probably already know post-hardcore hits Touché Amoré sold out Ché Café, which never stopped anybody from hanging around the campus hot spot (you can really hear it all, and you don’t have to shower after)...but if you’d rather be stagefront, check out kitschy space-pop band Jason Hanna & the Bullfighters at Casbah, where they headline sets by our own Rosalyns and Hiroshima Mockingbirds...or acoustic, country-metal duo Whiskeydick, which sets up at Soda Bar after Archer Nation and Deadbrokedown. According to the Soda site, Whiskeydick’s song “‘Drunk as Hell’ was featured on the TV series Sons of Anarchy,” if that sways you.

Alt-folk Philly kid Kurt Vile hits House of Blues on Tues.

Tuesday 9
The Philly born-and-bred psych-folk singer/songwriter Kurt Vile cut his teeth with the excellent War on Drugs band before finding his own voice and ever-growing audience. Last year’s b’lieve I’m goin’ down was a lean and clean (by Vile standards) take on his unique vision, which bleats like Dylan and Petty, bosses like the Boss, and sees, like Nick Drake, the humor in the mundane. Get Dave Good’s take in this week’s issue before Kurt Vile & the Violators violate the House of Blues on Tues. Our own Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession, Mr. Tube) opens the show.... Jamestown, New York’s favorite folk-rockers 10,000 Maniacs this year released a new live disc, Playing Favorites, their first album with current lead singer Mary Ramsey, and they are working on an album of all originals with the violist/vocalist. In the meantime, Ms. Ramsey and the Maniacs take the stage at Belly Up Tuesday night...whilst Kentucky-aged experimental cellist Ben Sollee’s at Soda Bar with Citrus & Katie (“psychedelic R&B fresh outta SD”).

One-woman pop-punk band Lisa Prank sets up at Soda Bar on Wednesday night.

Wednesday 10
Up in the Heights Wednesday night, Lisa Prank plays Soda Bar behind her recent Stereogum “album of the week,” Adult Teen. Ms. Prank, aka Robin Edwards, “is a one-woman trapper keeper pop punk band,” who likes the Blink-snot brand of the genre. With just a guitar and drum machine, Prank takes the Soda stage to play “hairbrush singalong songs about love and heartbreak and all that stuff.” Polish and Nancy Sin open the show...while right down the road at the Hideout, Bellingham’s one-man chillwave band Manatee Commune floats in after Chicago indietronica act Shallou...and from Bogotá, jazz-pop-swing band Monsieur Periné plays the Casbah behind this year’s Latin Grammy nominee Caja de Música.
