Soda Bar sets up Dwarves and Queers, Yuck

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

Soda Bar sets up English indie hits Yuck on Wednesday night!

Hardcore hits the Dwarves roll into the Soda on Sunday.

Sunday 20
Dwarves and Queers split a fun-punk bill at Soda Bar Sunday night. Singer Blag Dahlia and guitarist HeWhoCannotBeNamed have been touring together since the early ’80s, when they started performing as the Sonics-style garage-rock band Suburban Nightmare. The pair departed the “paisley underground” in ’86, with the release of Dwarves’ hardcore debut Horror Stories, and since have become “one of the last true bastions of punk-rock ideology in the contemporary musical age” (Time Off). Joe King’s Queers came out in the early ’80s as a tongue-in-cheek rock reaction to the East Coast “art fag” community. The New Hampshire band affects a Ramones-meets-Beach Boys pop-punk sound and sings laughers about beer and girls, and beer. San Diego’s own Stalins of Sound set it up...while downtown, Def Jam hip-hop duo Redman & Method Man, aka Red and Mef from Jersey, rock the mic at boutique bar Fluxx.

Southern-gothic singer/songwriter J.D. Wilkes plays the Hideout on Monday.

Monday 21
Touring in support of his new record, The Southern Surreal, the Southern-gothic singer/songwriter, Legendary Shack Shaker, and Kentucky colonel (no kidding) J.D. Wilkes hits the Hideout Monday night. Read how Reader rock writer Dave Good sees/hears this odd songsmith in this week’s Of Note. Our own Dominick Joseph Gambini and Toothless George open that show...whilst Bella Union band PINS plays Brit-gaze (à la My Bloody Valentine) at Casbah’s Anti-Monday after September Girls and Shady Francos...and fresh from South By Southwest, Madrid, Spain’s garage-punk four-piece Los Nastys joins borderland bands Policias y Ladronas, Some Kind of Lizard, and Mint Field at the Office in North Park.

Tuesday 22
The New York indie-pop troupe Ra Ra Riot throws “an(other) ’80s-themed dance party” (AV Club) on this year’s Need Your Light, the first two singles from which were collaborations with Vampire Weekend’s magic-touch composer/multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij. Doubtful he will be onstage when the Riot hits the all-ages Irenic on Tuesday.... Scotty Blinn’s grease-punk trio the Black Market III headlines sets at the Merrow after likeminded locs Rhythm & the Method and Shifty Eyed Dogs.

Reverend Horton Heat will rockabilly Belly Up on Wednesday.

Wednesday 23
London-based indie-rock quartet Yuck has been dropping ’90s-style fuzz bombs since their daring self-titled debut five years ago — daring for its obvious appropriation of the Weezer/Pavement American-indie generation. Thing is, they do it very well (sometimes better), and we’re recommending this year’s shameless slab of yesteryear, Stranger Things, as a pitch-perfect primer for their local show. Soda Bar stages Yuck on Wednesday night after Big Thief and Junk.... Best of the rest Wednesday night: Aussie stoner-rockers Wolfmother hit House of Blues behind this year’s Victorious. L.A.’s heavy blues-rock duo Deap Vally opens the show...the rockabilly Reverend Horton Heat lights up Belly Up behind his latest, REV...Brooklyn-based beats duo French Horn Rebellion brings their “new jack swing basement dance party” to Casbah...while this year’s United Crushers, the Mini-apple synthpop five-piece Poliça, plays the Irenic.
