A band called Sissy Spacek, Saintseneca, Adolescents

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

Sissy Spacek headlines sets at the Hideout Thursday night.

The mighty Octagrape will open the show for Sissy Spacek at the Hideout Thursday night!

A band called Sissy Spacek. Surewhynot. The West Coast duo of John Wiese (strings) and Charlie Mumma (skins) are more sound collagists than songsmiths. The schitzy grind project, though prolific in its output over its 15-year span, is meant to be experienced firsthand, affecting you with demon volume and cut-and-paste sonics. In its top-20 punk bands of 2015, LA Weekly pinned them at #4, though you’d be hard-pressed to compare them in any way to the other 19 bands on that list. According to the Weekly, Sissy Spacek creates “intense noisecore disconnected from any particular scene...their sets comprise 10 to 20 minutes of nonstop noise delivered through broken instruments and a deviation from reality.” We can’t imagine a more appropriate venue than the Hideout or more facilitating support than our own fuzzy warblers Octagrape and Monochromacy, as well as TJ folky-turned synthfreak, Late Night Howl’s Pablo Dodero and his personal purge machine, Les Temps Barbares. For fans of the brand, this’d be the gig to hit this week. We’ll see you in Normal Heights Thursday night.... The rest of you: Casbah fills a locals-only bill with piano-pounding pop-rockers Hills Like Elephants, Drew Andrews’s beats band Bit Maps, and desert-noir spine-tinglers Dani Bell & the Tarantist...Swedish heavy-metal band Enforcer and Cali thrash act Warbringer hit Brick by Brick...Dave Good’s Of Noted show, the Paula Boggs Band, takes the stage at O.B. bar Winstons...and the Loft at UCSD is offering a dinner-and-movie package, serving up some Southern comfort dishes and screening the Nina Simone story What Happened, Miss Simone?, which is nominated for a 2016 Best Documentary Feature.

Soaring folk-rockers Saintseneca take the Casbah stage Friday night.

Friday 5
From Columbus, Ohio, ANTI- recording artists Saintseneca bring the balalaika, mandolin, dulcimer, and Turkish baglama to Casbah Friday night. The indie folkies are known to throw around some exotic gear and sounds in their soaring songs. Zac Little and company are touring in support of last year’s Such Things record, featuring the catchy if nonsensical “Bad Ideas.” check out the video; artistically, it’s chock full of them. I dig the guitar’s low-end through-line, though — like their last stroke, “Uppercutter,” it’ll carry the day today. Des Ark and Torches open the show.... Best of the rest on Friday finds SD R&B throwbacks the Amandas at South Park bar Whistle Stop...L.A.’s neo-soul chanteuse Jhené Aiko’s at Observatory North Park...and up at UCSD, avant-jazz pianist Joshua White (((Codes))) the Loft...while across campus at Ché Café, Lovely Bad Things play with Shivs, Shady Francos, and Fake Tides for a fun-filled night of San Diego surf-punk.

Southern California's punk-rock supergroup the Adolescents will spin a pit at Casbah on Saturday!

Saturday 6
Saturday afternoon, Vinyl Junkies take over Middletown mainstay Casbah for their monthly crate-flipping and cocktail-sipping record swap...then stick around downtown, as it turns out SoCal’s punk-rock supergroup Adolescents, made up of members of Agent Orange and Social Distortion, wasn’t just a side project. Thirty-five years later, Tony Cadena (vocals) and Steve Soto (guitar) are still recording and touring under their well-known logo. And the records aren’t rehash, as their latest, La Vendetta, was named by the OC Weekly, “Best Punk Album of 2014.” The punk perennials spin a pit at Casbah Saturday night after sets by San Diego’s own Widows and Touchies.... Else: Johnny Deadly Trio, Shifty Eyed Dogs, and Fanny & the Attaboys deliver your recommended daily allowance of tat-rock to the Merrow in Hillcrest...Soda Bar sets up the sonically similar dude from Strung Out, Jason Cruz & the Howl, with Jared Stinson, Brian Wahlstrom, and Yotam Ben Horin...while San Diego’s symphonic metal band Unicorn Death takes the stage at the all-ages Soma after Mursic, Chamber Sixx, Empyrean Throne, and Sergulath.
