Haunted hotel Halloween at the Lafayette, Casbah style

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

Nu-grass Michiganders Greensky Bluegrass belly up to Belly Up on Wednesday.
Nu-grass Michiganders Greensky Bluegrass belly up to Belly Up on Wednesday.

Sunday 30
Eighties new-wavers Psychedelic Furs play Belly Up in Solana Beach on Sunday night. The English act is still anchored by brothers Richard (singer) and Tim Butler (guitar) and still trades in their imminently dance- and singalongable back catalog; i.e., e.g., “Ghost in You,” “Alice’s House,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Heartbreak Beat” — shall I go on — “Love My Way,” “Forever Now,” “Heaven,” etc. etc. etc. L.A.’s garage-pop buzz band Pom Poms opens the easy-listener.... Else on Sunday: psychedelic surf-punk Burger Records band Melissa Brooks & the Aquadolls plays the all-ages Irenic...while EDM Canada band Zeds Dead sets up at the Observatory North Park.

Brass-punk big band Rocket From the Crypt headlines Halloween sets at the Lafayette!

Monday 31
Scream, Dracula, Scream! It’s Halloween! And the Casbah is back in the haunted-hotel business to scare up one helluva party at the Lafayette in North Park, where them organ-grinding surf-spooks Creepy Creeps, local indie hits Mrs. Magician, and garage-wreckers Beehive & the Barracudas set up the headlining brass-punk big band Rocket From the Crypt for a costumed ball, Casbah style!.... If you miss tix to that, don’t sweat it, as ginger-pop maestro Rafter and “art-funk hero” Gary Wilson split a strange bill at Seven Grand. Rafter’s celebrating the release of his new joint, XYZ, while Mr. Wilson will be giving us a taste of his new record, It’s Christmas Time with Gary Wilson.... More Halloween treats: Wild Wild Wets (playing Pink Floyd), Spooky Cigarette and Foxine Jay (doing Peaches), and Stalins of Sound (as the Damned) fill a tribute bill at Soda Bar...from Alabama, funky rock-n-soul duo Boombox brings the party platter that is this year’s Bits & Pieces to the Observatory...and it’s “Dead Man’s Party,” an apropos Oingo Boingo Undercover night at the Office.

Brit-punk droogies the Adicts take the stage at Observatory North Park on Tuesday.

Tuesday 1
All the Young Droogs — 40 years strong Brit-punk band the Adicts will don their Clockwork Orange garb and punk the Observatory on Tuesday night. Austin street punks Lower Class Brats will open that show...while neo-soul singer and former Fugee Ms. Lauryn Hill graces the stage at Copley Symphony Hall downtown after world-music group Seun Kuti & Fela’s Egypt 80...and Soda Bar sets up a couple of Midwest anthem bands in Fictionist and Step Rockets, if you’re down for some “sweeping” pop sounds.

Wednesday 2
From Kalamazoo, Michigan, nu-grass jam band Greensky Bluegrass blows into Belly Up after the likeminded Lil’ Smokies of Missoula, Montana. Greensky is touring in support of this year’s Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, the jamgrass act’s first foray into folk-rock-n-roll. Lil’ Smokies won Best Bluegrass Band at Telluride in 2015, so it should be a bonafide hootenany in Solana Beach Wednesday night...more of the same at Soda Bar, as Boston’s “new acoustic” act Lonely Heartstring Band brings Deep Waters to the Normal Heights stage after local alt-country quartet People Might Scream....Other mentionables’d be Indian psychedelic-rock band Elephant Stone, which hits the Hideout humpnight with this year’s Ship of Fools...Autograf and Goldroom split an electronic bill at the Observatory North Park...and Aussie singer/songwriter Hayden James plays Casbah.
