Cave Singers, Andra Day, Protomartyr

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

Soda Bar sets up Detroit's post-punk Protomartyr on Wednesday night!
Soda Bar sets up Detroit's post-punk Protomartyr on Wednesday night!
Fuzzed-out indie folkies the Cave Singers set up at Casbah Sunday night.

Sunday 28
Casbah stages ex–Pretty Girls Make Graves group Cave Singers on Sunday. The Seattle trio’s touring in support of last year’s Banshee record, a bracing, buzzing folk-rock collection that prompted the Reader’s Andrew Hamlin to get frontman Pete Quirk on the line for last week’s “Fighting monsters with Cave Singers” Blurt, so click back for that. Indie-folkie Canada band Current Swell sets it up.... Best of the rest on Sunday finds El Paso’s country punks Dirty River Boys (“quintessentially Texas — a bit rough around the edges but full of heart”) drifting into Soda Bar after the O’s and Liquorsmiths...while The OC’s alt-pop trio Armors takes the Ché Café stage after tour mates Kid Cadaver and our own psych-pop Gloomies.

Monday 29
With Major League Baseball’s spring training heating up, it seems appropriate that Adam Gimbel would dust off his Rookie Card uniform and plug in at Whistle Stop for a night of “rockaltcountryindiepopcatchycore”...while the Office in North Park hosts Bowie Undercover Part II Monday night, featuring “Ziggy Shuffledust” Gary Shuffler and, oddly enough, Rookie Card’s Adam Gimbel. “Station to Station,” Adam?... For you Francophiles, Francophone singer/songwriter Béatrice Martin, aka Coeur de Pirate, takes the stage at Belly Up. Ms. Martin-Pirate sings mostly in French and has been credited with “bringing la chanson française to a whole new generation of Quebec youth.”

Retro-soul vocalist and former San Diegan Andra Day comes home to play the Observatory on Tuesday.

Tuesday 1
San Diego native and retro-soul vocalist Andra Day brings her Cheers to the Fall tour through her hometown. Day, who is most compared to Amy Winehouse and Etta James, apparently “kickstarted her career by posting R&B takes of songs by Eminem and Muse on YouTube” (Billboard). Ms. Day will play Observatory North Park on Tuesday...while SanFran funk-rock band Grim Slippers slip into Casbah after Raf Deza...sepia-toned folkies G Burns Jug Band take the stage at the Merrow with Homesick Hitchers and Star Bandits...while Echo Park’s indie-pop band Banta sets up at Soda Bar in advance of this summer’s Dark Charms record — the show’s free with an RSVP.

Wednesday 2
Detroit quartet Protomartyr brings urban poetics to post-punk à la the Hold Steady’s heady sing-speak alt-rock rants. They even look a bit like that Midwest band — unassuming everymen — and have got the ears of rock writers from Michigan to Madrid, including our own Dryw Keltz, who spoke with frontman Joe Casey about the band’s beginnings and last year’s sophomore set, the well-received Agent Intellect record. Flip or click to this week’s “Beauty amidst ruin” Blurt in advance of Wednesday night’s show at Soda Bar, where Chastity Belt and Octagrape set the stage.... Miss the door at that one, San Diego’s hardcore best Battalion of Saints takes Til-Two with Phobia and Nomads...while Nawlins alt-pop mainstays Mutemath hit House of Blues behind last year’s Vitals...and autoharpist Basia Bulat brings her Jim James–produced Good Advice to Casbah.
