A country-fried Fourth, the four-headed hip-hop monster

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

Rubiks Cube rapper: hip-hop smartypants Logic rolls into Sleep Train with YG, G-Eazy, and Yo Gotti on Tuesday.

From the OC, melodic-hardcore band Ignite lights up Brick by Brick Sunday night.

Sunday 3
Back to Brick by Brick on Sunday night, when Ignite lights up the Bay Park bar after Skipjack, Eken Is Dead, and Somatic. The OC’s melodic-hardcore quintet Ignite is touring in support of this year’s well-received comeback tracks A War Against You, which Nerdist gives 5/5 stars because it’s “classic Ignite — loud and angry, but with a melody you can’t help but sing along to”.... From the other end of the musical spectrum, Bay Area neofolkie Emily Jane White sets up at Soda Bar behind this week’s release, They Moved In Shadow All Together. Eva & the Vagabonds and Hexa open the show.

Nothing says Americana like fireworks and Johnny Cash — Cash'd Out play the Embarcadero on the Fourth of July.

Monday 4
Happy Independents Day, indie peeps. Follow your senses to the Embarcadero for a feast of smoked eats, high-flying firecrackers, and the country-fried tunes of Cash’d Out, Nena Anderson, and the San Diego Symphonyers as they accompany Chula Vista’s own American Idol, pop singer Jessica Sanchez.

Casbah stages indie folkie Joe Pug on Wednesday.

Tuesday 5
The Grammy- and SDMA-winning alt-rock quintet Switchfoot will be touring the country behind this summer’s Where the Light Shines Through. After kicking off this year’s county fair, the band has plans to throw an official record-release party on the Inspiration Hornblower on Tuesday. Or, as announced via switchfoot.com, “Ahoy, me Hearties! Batten down the hatches and imagine yourself settin’ sail around the San Diego Bay while the sun is a settin’ and whales are a hummin’ along to our 10th album!” Jay Allen Sanford has a chat with guitarist Drew “Handsome” Shirley in this week’s issue.... Not into boats? How about trains? The “hip-hop event of the season” rolls into Sleep Train Tuesday, when G-Eazy, Logic, YG, and Yo Gotti take the South Bay by radio-rap storm. According to the presser on this thing, “Summer is looking lit like Bic thanks to the Endless Summer Tour!” Doesn’t look like it’s selling very well, so the singular “Bic” is probably accurate.... Else on Tuesday: Austin sludge-rock trio Destroyer of Light snuffs the Soda Bar with Beira and Garth Algar.

Wednesday 6
“Not even Dylan does Dylan anymore,” according to Reader writer Dave Good, which is why, it seems, the Dylan-leaning indie-folkie Joe Pug has found a second life in music. Touring in support of last year’s well-received Windfall record, the very literary singer/songwriter — he claims allegiance to Walt Whitman, John Steinbeck, Raymond Carver, and Cormac McCarthy — appears at the Casbah on Wednesday...while TV-pop starlet Selena Gomez’s Revival Tour makes a stop at the Valley View Casinorena...and the Japanese-American rapper Lyrics Born bounces into Belly Up behind his new greatest hits collection, Now Look What You’ve Done, Lyrics Born!
