“We could get so famous that we both get shot, but right now I’m in the shower.” Touring behind one of last year’s catchiest records, Brooklyn garage-glam band PWR BTTM hit the Hideout Thursday night after our own salty sock-hop-rockers Gone Baby Gone. With Ugly Cherries, PWR BTTM’s guitarist Ben Hopkins and drummer Liv Bruce have produced the pop-crossover record that garage-punk revolutionaries Pansy Division just missed making, despite that queercore band’s early-career ride on Green Day’s Dookie-covered coattails. The difference is Hopkins and Bruce make the message universal and fun, sing-along-able, vascillating between White Stripes rock stomps (“Dairy Queen”) and Magnetic Fields bedsit ruminations (“C U Around”). Equally engaging listens. Fans of the brand will be hearing much about these Bard College buds, but just dig through all that to the tunes. Suss ’em out on the interwebs and I’ll see you in Normul Heights Thursday night.... Unless you’re a diehard Trekkie, of course. “It’s William Shatner’s world, we just live in it.” Boldly going where no former starship captain has gone before, the Balboa Theatre at Horton Plaza, Shatner delivers his monologue on life in TV and film, a sort-of live biography that the New York Post says “is more entertaining than it has any right to be.” That, kids, is what you call a backhanded compliment.... Best of the rest Thursday night finds critical hit Julia Holter, who is out to tout her latest, Have You in My Wilderness, at the all-ages Irenic with Chicago-based Thrill Jockey artist Haley Fohr, aka Circuit Des Yeux...the “Queen of Rockabilly,” Wanda Jackson, 78 years young, plays Casbah after Action Andy & the Hi-Tones...while Bay Park bar Brick by Brick stages “death-pop” five-piece Orgy with Death Valley High and Mursic.

Birdy Bardot's indie-rock band New Kinetics headlines sets at Soda Bar Friday night.

Friday 29
Soda Bar sets up a crazy-tasty triple-decker Friday night, all locally grown, with Birdy Bardot’s New Kinetics, Brian Karscig’s Nervous Wreckords, and Jesika Von Rabbit of high-desert psych-pop act Gram Rabbit. At ten bucks, you can’t afford not to rock this ticket.... Philly’s favorite son G. Love last year delivered a duets record of his trademark hip-hop and blues-rock stylings, Love Saves the Day, featuring collaborations with Lucinda Williams, Citizen Cope, Ozomatli, DJ Logic, and David Hildago of Los Lobos. According to the tastemakers at Paste, “the new songs are sure to be a riot live.” G. Love spills his Special Sauce all over the Belly Up stage Friday night.... Else on Friday: local radio jock Steve West will host his Subbacultcha dance party at the Music Box in Little It’ly, spinning the best of the ’80s around sets by close-enough Cure tribute the Cured...Vegas favorites Richard Cheese & Lounge Against the Machine play a funyun at House of Blues. Yes, it sounds just like it reads, a lounge-singing comedian crooning rock, metal, and hip-hop hits in a lamé blazer...while grungy Southern-rock act Saving Abel stacks ’em at Brick by Brick with Gunner Gunner, Kirro, and Born to Rise.

Silent Comedy helps Casbah celebrate 27 years on Saturday night!

Saturday 30
According to Reader writer Dave Good, in the blues world, “John Hammond Jr. is a rock star.” The Blues Hall of Famer and Grammy award winner has released more than 30 albums and has shared stage and studio with several classic-rock notables, including Dylan, Clapton, and Hendrix. Hammond will be singing his songs and telling his stories at Sweetwater Union High School in Chula Vista for Saturday night’s Acoustic Music San Diego event.... Casbah celebrates 27 years at the top of San Diego’s rock-club heap by staging local favorites Silent Comedy and Creature & the Woods, as well as the O’C.’s blues-rock best Robert Jon & the Wreck.... Around town Saturday night: SanFran folk-punk band Rin Tin Tiger sets up at Soda Bar after Bad & the Ugly and the Wild Fires...Oaktown death-thrash act Hallucinator takes the Tower Bar after Invocation War and Miscreancy...and San Diego’s big-in-Japan singer/songwriter Natalie Emmons plays a hometown show on the all-ages stage at Soma after local indie-pop bands Inspired & the Sleep, Bakkuda, and PRGRM.
