Irenic has Bernie and The Donald, Soda's got Nothing

...while Valley View Casinorena cages the Elephant this week in San Diego shows

Philly shoegazers Nothing bring their latest thing to Soda Bar Wednesday night.

Soda Bar stages Arabic pop band Mashrou’ Leila on Monday.

Sunday 19
I like to leave the politickin’ up to you pros on Facebook and Twitter, but I think this looks like some informative fun for everyone at the all-ages Irenic, where they’ll stage a Trump versus Bernie debate, starring New York comics James Adomian (Bern) and Anthony Atamanuik (the Donald)...if you don’t, You Won’t is at Casbah. The folk-pop Massachusetts duo is touring in support of this year’s Revolutionaries (speaking of Bernie), a collection Consequence of Sound likes for its “silly charms...that take the soft allure of their previous LPs and up the volume to 11.” Hmm. Bombadil and Jocelyn Mackenzie are also on the bill.

Monday 20
From Beirut, the Arabic pop band Mashrou’ Leila tours through town behind their latest, last year’s Ibn El Leil. According to The Guardian, “It’s such an impressive performance that stadiums seem not only possible but imminent.” In the meantime, they’ll settle for Soda Bar on Monday night.... Continuing with the international acts, Argentine singer-songwriter Federico Aubele’s at Casbah...while Jamaican dub pioneer Lee “Scratch” Perry sets up at Belly Up.... Also on Monday, Three One G meets Planet B when hard-rocking MCs Justin Pearson, Gabe Serbian, and Luke Henshaw hit the decks at the Office in North Park, where they promise to “abduct your brains with music both mischievous in sound and sobering in message.”

Guitar shredder Buckethead jacks in at the Music Box on Tuesday.

Tuesday 21
After a four-year hiatus from touring, the multi-instrumentalist Brian Carroll, aka Buckethead, returned to the road behind the release of his 256th album. Yes, 256th. Over 30 years, that’s about nine albums a year. You think that’s fast, you should see him shred. He is consistently named by industry mags as one of the fastest — and “weirdest” (Guitar World) — guitarists of all time. The bucket-and-mask-wearing, robot-dancing, and let’s not forget former member of Guns ’N Roses, appears at Music Box on Tuesday.... Right around the bend on Kettner in Middletown, SanFran psych-pop band Blank Tapes rolls at Casbah after the Pesos and Rotten Mangos...while Nashville’s un-country indie act Paper Route lands somewhere near the Soda Bar stage after Armors and Velour.

Alt-rock radio staples Cage the Elephant take the stage at Valley View Casinorena on Wednesday.

Wednesday 22
Big shoegaze sound coming down from Philly guitar band Nothing, which plays Soda Bar on Wednesday behind this year’s crit hit Tired of Tomorrow. Dryw Keltz had a chat with Nothing frontgun Domenic “Nicky” Palermo in this week’s “Nothing like a headbanger” Blurt. Culture Abuse and Wrong open the show.... The Bowling Green–based alt-rock act Cage the Elephant is a guilty pleasure around the Reader offices. Their latest radio smash, “Mess Around” from last year’s Grammy-nominated Tell Me I’m Pretty, can be heard pissing from the earbuds of countless noddin’ noggins in the halls and break room. Much like their previous hits (“Come a Little Closer,” “Cigarette Daydreams”), “Mess Around” is equally catchy and kooky — all unabashed throwbacks to ’80s dorm pop. They play Valley View Casinorena on Wednesday night with Portugal. The Man and Sunflower Bean.... Else on Wednesday: Casbah’s serving Mimosa...while the Hideout has Ne-Hi.
