Spotlights shine on the Casbah stage

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

Like a Tidals wave: Spotlights will wash over the Casbah stage this Sunday!
Like a Tidals wave: Spotlights will wash over the Casbah stage this Sunday!
Indie-rock's Deep Sea Diver will share their Secrets at the Soda Bar on Monday.

Sunday 11
Brooklyn’s “sludgegaze” trio Spotlights will be the gig to see this week. Touring in support of this year’s very recommendable set of slow-core heaviosity (think Hum, Melvins, Bloody Valentines), Tidals, is the husband-wife team of Sarah and Mario Quintero, with Josh Cooper pummeling drums. Download that glacial ripper now and I’ll see you stagefront at Casbah on Sunday after our own hard-rocking Death Eyes and Deep Sea Thunderbeast. I’ll bring extra earplugs.... Miss the door in Middletown, your favorite blues-metal band — “the biggest cult band of hard rock,” according to AllMusicLynch Mob hits House of Blues behind their 2015 critical hit, Rebel.

Country singer/songwriter Sam Outlaw headlines Casbah's Anti-Monday this week.

Monday 12
After playing bit parts with hit artists Beck, Conor Oberst, Spoon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Shins, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jessica Dobson decided it was time to go all Deep Sea Diver and bring up some indie-rock treasure to call her own. Case in point is this year’s long-player Secrets, a record Consequence of Sound says is “diverse but cohesive, sporting powerful rock ballads as well as straight pop songs. It’s a completely addictive album full of grit and control.” Divers take the Soda Bar stage Monday after Oh, Spirit and Imagery Machine.... According to Reader writer Dave Good, “The best new authentic country is finding audiences in the nation’s rock-and-roll venues,” which is nothing new, says Dave, as “Dwight Yoakam, credited with the revival of West Coast country music, broke out during the ’80s on the same bills as X and the Blasters.” L.A.-based country artist Sam Outlaw won’t be sharing the Casbah stage with X or the Blasters, but guitar great Ry Cooder produced his new disc, Angeleno, and it’s getting good press from the “cultural gurus” at Rolling Stone and NPR in the U.S. and the Guardian and BBC overseas. Catch the up-and-coming international country hit when he plays Casbah’s Anti-Monday after Cale Tyson and Reverend Baron.

Tuesday 13
Observatory North Park serves Clams Casino Tuesday night. The hip-hop Jersey boy this year released his debut disc, 32 Levels, which apparently it has, dabbling in electronica, witch house, R&B, and something called “cloud rap.” Casino’s West Coast cohort Lil B opens the show.... Utterwise: rootsy swingers Davina & the Vagabonds set up at Soda Bar...Joseph Arthur and Reuben Hollebon split an indie-folkie bill at the Music Box in Little Italy...San Diego stoner-rock trio Space Wax (“Earth has become overrun with kooks. We’re starting up an Intergalactic Caravan Party to rage with everyone awesome in the universe.”) plays Til-Two with Portland band R.I.P. and our own Red Wizard, while the Operation: Mindblowers glow...and Young Wants, Melt, Beach Goons, and Bad Kids fill a lo-fi surf-punk bill at the Merrow.

Indie-folkie Chuck Ragan and his band the Camaraderie take the stage at Casbah on Wednesday.

Wednesday 14
Hot Water Music’s Chuck Ragan and his band the Camaraderie will play Casbah Wednesday with Flogging Molly’s Nathen Maxwell and “analog electronics designer” W.T. Nelson. And is if those three sets don’t sound interesting enough, Ragan’s latest project was soundtracking the video game The Flame in the Flood. I know, me neither, but it sounds kinda cool: “A rogue river journey through the backwaters of a forgotten post-societal America. Forage, craft, evade predators.” And apparently the band’s performing songs from the soundtrack, so you better dig out your hipwaders.... Best of the rest on Wednesday: Soda Bar stages psychedelic rocker Entrance (Guy Blakeslee of the Entrance Band) with San Diego’s solo acousticat Joshua Emery Blatchlee...while Greyboy’s “future funk” five-piece Taurus Authority will do their “every second Wednesday” thing at Bar Pink.
