Built to Spill, Growlers, Sharkmuffin

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

Indie-rock royalty Built to Spill pour their guitar-band brand all over Casbah on Sunday and Monday nights!
Indie-rock royalty Built to Spill pour their guitar-band brand all over Casbah on Sunday and Monday nights!
Hip-hop hit Logic has the mic at Soma Sunday night in a Casbah-curated show.

Sunday 14
It’s Valentine’s Day and your candy heart wants to rock. Some solid choices Sunday night, too, including indie hits Built to Spill, who open a two-night stand at Casbah with the Hand and Iceberg Ferg. Built to Spill mainstay Doug Marstch called last year’s Untethered Moon his “fresh-start record,” and it listens like one, for new fans and old.... Hip-hop’s “Young Sinatra,” the Baltimore-based rapper Logic, has the mic at Soma Sunday night. Logic’s touring in support of his new Def Jam disc The Incredible True Story, one of the few recent rap records I spin with any regularity.... Best of the rest: the Grammy-nommed nu-metal God squad P.O.D. plays H.O.B...Dresden’s psychedelic garage-rockers Roaring 420s spark up at Soda Bar after Lucid Season...SanFran “post-primal” band All Your Sisters roll into South Park bar Whistle Stop after our own Nylon Apartment...while Oaktown’s worldly “ethnotronica” trio Beats Antique plays Observatory North Park.

"Beach-goth" band the Growlers split bills with Jonathan Richman at the Observatory on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday 15
It’s Precedents Day and you want to set the precedent that Monday night is just as good a night to rock as any other. Happily, Built to Spill’s still at Casbah in case you missed them Sunday night or just want to see what they wear on Monday...and North County’s reggae-rock party band Pepper spices up House of Blues after funk-rock ’Zonies Katastro.

Tuesday 16
Probably (and unfortunately) best known for his turn as “the singing narrator” between acts in the hit comedy movie There’s Something About Mary, Jonathan Richman is also a pioneer of the proto-punk era with his band the Modern Lovers (1970–1988) and an art-folk troubadour on the humorous side of Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Richman takes the stage at the Observatory North Park on Tuesday and Wednesday, when he splits bills with L.A.’s favorite “beach goth” band the Growlers. Looks as if both nights are about sold out.... If ya miss it and get your thinking cap back from the dry cleaners in time, experimental composers Emily Wells (Amarillo TX) and Lorna Dune (Portlandia OR) split a heady bill at Casbah.

Soda Bar stages grunge-punk trio Sharkmuffin on Wednesday night!

Wednesday 17
NPR calls Sharkmuffin “either the most glam garage band around or the grungiest glam band around.” Billboard says they’re “one of the 20 all-female bands you need to know.” The Reader’s Dave Good picks the Brooklyn-based power-punk trio as the gig to get to this week. Sharkmuffin sets up at Soda Bar behind their full-length debut, Chartreuse, on Wednesday night, after local favorites Soft Lions.... Miss the door at Soda Bar, Austin’s blue-collar rockers the Bellfuries play Casbah with the Johnny Deadly Trio and Hotshot Drifters...while indie-folkie Joe Purdy plays Belly Up behind his latest, Eagle Rock Fire. Jenny O. opens that show. (Name recognition, right? But she’s neither the ground-turkey lady nor Karen O.’s sister.)
