All-stars, rock stars, and not just another band out of Boston

...and the rest of the highlights from Sunday night through humpnight

The Sub Pop–signed glam-folk artist Kyle Craft takes the stage at Casbah Sunday night.

Classic-rock radio staples Boston celebrate 40 years at Humphrey's by the Bay on Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday 10
From Smalltown, Louisiana comes a talented singer/songwriter called Kyle Craft, a guy whose first record was a Bowie greatest-hits collection from Kmart that formed his aesthetic. In spades! I also get a strong Dan Bejar/Conor Oberst/Will Sheff vibe, unabashed singers that go for it on every take because there’s absolutely no alternative. Fans of the “glam-folk” brand, give Craft’s Sub Pop debut Dolls of Highland a spin and we’ll see you at Casbah on Sunday.... Else on Sunday, from Athens, GA, Southern psych-pop band New Madrid plays Soda Bar with Jimmy Ruelas and Michael Mcgraw & the Butchers...while Whistle Stop stages Fistfights with Wolves, a local math-rock act inspired by none other than the “flying spaghetti monster.”

Monday 11
Well, they’re just another band out of Boston... Hardly, the multi-platinum-selling classic-rock-radio staples from Beantown are on the road celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. Tom Scholz — the tech nerd who in 1976 built this rock-and-roll beast in an MIT lab — and company will be plowing through 50 dates in 100 days, and you, lucky San Diego fans, can look for their signature flaming guitar spaceship to descend over Humphreys by the Bay for two of those nights, on Monday and Tuesday.... Otherwise on Monday, Parker Milsap and Travis Linville split an Americana singer/songwriter bill at Casbah...while roadhouse folk-rocker Miwi La Lupa sets up at Soda Bar.

"American primitive" singer/songwriter M. Ward brings More Rain to the Belly Up stage on Tuesday.

Tuesday 12
The All-Star game gets played and televised worldwide on Tuesday, so comb your hair and smile, San Diego.... If you’ve no interest in that, from Portlandia, the “American primitive” folk and blues singer/guitarist M. Ward’s More Rain Tour falls on the Belly Up stage on Tuesday. Have been spinning the new disc this morning as I type, and I like it. Like, Buddy Holly having a bad day.... Around town on Tuesday, from “Hollywouldn’t, California,” that “electro-soul with a shot of whiskey” duo Smoke Season drifts into Casbah after Caught a Ghost...and Olympia, Washington’s gothy slow-core quartet Underpass plays the Soda Bar with Soft Kill and Crime Desire.

Wednesday 13
Humpnight’s light, but not a total bust, as country-rock comedian Wheeler Walker (aka Ben Hoffman of Comedy Central’s The Ben Show) brings his Redneck Shit to Casbah. Insisting that he’s not dissing just “bro country” music, Hoffman recently commented in Rolling Stone on the collection’s undiscriminatingly offensive nature: “If someone put in a machine, ‘What’s the way to sell the least amount of country records?’ I did that. I pissed off every group.” The likeminded ladies of Nashville “country-punk” duo Birdcloud open the show.
