B-52s, L.A. Witch, Guided by Voices

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

That reverb-drenched psych-surf trio L.A. Witch hits the Hideout on Tuesday.

New wave party people the B-52s headline sets at the Embarcadero on Sunday!

Sunday 14
The Athens, Georgia, quartet B-52s upped new wave’s odd-pop ante in the 1980s with smash hits such as “Rock Lobster,” “Private Idaho,” and “Love Shack.” And despite meeting the supposed requirements for induction into the Rock Hall of Fame, critics feel it is their disco-bent tunes and campy lyrics that have prevented their inclusion. Screw the Hall — we say the five-twos are an eight-legged party beast. They join the Fixx (“Red Skies at Night”) and the English Beat (“Mirror in the Bathroom”) for a new-wave flashback funday Sunday at the Embarcadero.... Mathcore Jersey boys Dillinger Escape Plan bring their Limerent Death Tour to Casbah. “Limerant Death” is the lead single off of their upcoming sixth record, Dissociation, due out in October, after which the experimental-metal band says they are going to take a break — “an extended hiatus” — so catch ’em while you can, Dillinger fan. Our own industrial noisemaker Author & Punisher opens the show.... Else: Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller’s at Soda Bar behind his country-rock latest, The Traveler...while New Orleans’ jazz-funk party players Galactic set up at Belly Up in Solana Beach.

A coldwave's blowin' in from Cincinnati: Skeleton Hands set up at the Office Monday night.

Monday 15
Dark-wave duo from Cincinnati Skeleton Hands and our own Blood Ponies split a goth-rock bill at the Office in North Park. For more on this one, check out Jay Allen Sanford’s “Feral Ponies” feature interview this week with the Ponies’ Jeff Terich.... Also in town Monday night, Vermont’s hottest roots-rock ticket Grace Potter & the Nocturnals will play Humphreys by the Bay. Last year, Potter & Co. had a couple of opportunities to open for the Stones on their Zip Code tour, and they made the most of it, joining the everlasting Brits onstage for classic “Gimme Shelter.”

Tuesday 16
L.A. Weekly calls the reverb-soaked rock trio L.A. Witch “Haunted surf rock, road-trip blues, and ’60s-sounding psychedelia.” It’s all right there on their self-titled 2015 debut and this year’s two-song set, Drive Your Car. Get to the interwebs for a taste and then catch them at the Hideout Tuesday night. Or Wednesday at the El Rey in L.A., where they play with the Coathangers and Death Valley Girls, which is one tantalizing roadtrippin’ triple bill. Who’s down?... Else on Tuesday: from Whitney, Texas, Southern gothic singer/songwriter Lincoln Durham takes the stage at Casbah behind this year’s “psycho-blues” set Revelations of a Mind Unraveling. San Diego’s own sepia-toned folkies G. Burns Jug Band open the show.

Bob Pollard and the boys of Guided by Voices will indie-rock the house at Belly Up on Wednesday!

Wednesday 17
Indie-rock Hall of Famers Guided by Voices set up at Belly Up behind this year’s Please Be Honest, Bob Pollard’s 8000th record (practically!) under the GBV moniker. It’s another in a very long line of mixed bags, according to Pitchfork, which Pitch-slapped it with a 5.9 score. Don’t matter, Bob and the boys (no Tobin Sprout this time out) always rock the house. As does Tulsa-based indie-rock band Broncho, which opens the show. Check out Dryw Keltz’s interview with head Broncho Ryan Lindsey in this week’s Blurt, “This Broncho has a reverb tank”.... Nearly 30 years into the industrial biz, fright-rock figurehead Marilyn Manson last year released a well-received comeback, Pale Emperor, and he is touring in advance of a quick (by Manson’s standards) follow-up called Say10 (get it?). Quaint, this: the goth goblin will apparently be gobblin’ gummy bears backstage, according this week’s “Big star riders” Blurt by Jay Allen. Manson, Slipknot, and Of Mice & Men will blot the stars from the sky over Sleep Train on Wednesday night...while Casbah puts on pouty party girls Chastity Belt. The surf-rock Seattle act is touring in support of last year’s well-received Hardly Art record, Time to Go Home. So Pitted and Teach Me will open the show.
