Trail of Dead at Soda Bar, Keith Morris and Peter Case at Whistle Stop

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

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead plays Source Tags & Codes at Soda Bar Thursday night!
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead plays Source Tags & Codes at Soda Bar Thursday night!
SoCal punk perennials the Descendents take the all-ages stage at Soma on Thursday.

Thursday 22
Source Tags & Codes is one of those records that inflates your perception of the rock album. It’s a living, breathing thing that its creators, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, will never escape, a record that they deny is the best they ever made (“No, the one we’re working on is the best” is a common claim from the Austin–based band). Giving in to it after 15 years, Trail of Dead is touring Source Tags & Codes in its entirety and will set up at Soda Bar Thursday night to do just that. As delicate as it is brutal, and as intelligent as it is brutish, Source Tags & Codes is a desert-island disc for discerning alt-rock fans. And I type that without an atom of irony. Okay, maybe one atom. Philly’s grungiest ’gazers Creepoid and punk’d power-pop SanFran band Culture Abuse open this go-to show.... “Indietronica bands appear to be bigger than the sum of their parts. And if it’s a night-time slot, you forget there’s a band, you forget there’s a stage, because a Naked and Famous light show approximates a journey to one of the seven moons of Jupiter.” This according to Reader writer Dave Good in this week’s issue. Touring in support of this year’s Simple Forms record, the Naked and Famous play Observatory North Park after Chain Gang of 1974. To read the rest of Dave’s Naked praise, flip or click to Of Note.... Best of the rest Thursday night finds the 35-years-along punk-rock four-piece from Manhattan Beach the Descendents on the all-ages stage at Soma...while Grammy nominees Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings do their funky R&B thing at Humphreys by the Bay.

Plimsoul Peter Case plays the Whistle Stop on Friday!

Friday 23
Whistle Stop’s sure to pack the South Park house Friday night, when everyone’s favorite hardcore frontman Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, OFF!) reads from his new biography, My Damage: The Story of a Punk Rock Survivor, before his pal Peter Case (the Nerves, Plimsouls) plays a set. This month Case re-released his 30-year-old self-titled solo debut with seven new tracks. It’s one of the great early-Americana records about which producer T-Bone Burnett said, “If this record doesn’t sell a million copies, I quit the business.” You don’t want T-Bone to quit the business, do you? See the merch person.... Else: Iceland post-rock band Sigur Rós will be pouring aural soundscapes in our beautiful Symphony Hall downtown...Irish alt-rock trio Ash will be playing their 20-year-old high-water mark 1977 at Soda Bar...L.A.’s first-wave punk Alice Bag (the Bags) headlines sets at Casbah by locals the Loons and Madly...while ’80s revivalist/reshaper Wyatt Blair takes the stage at Til-Two after the Tic-Tocs.

Belly Up stages British hard-rock trio Band of Skulls on Saturday.

Saturday 24
The Adams Avenue Street thing kicks off on Saturday and, as always, it’s free to roam and enjoy the jams. Way too many for me to list here, so please do your own legwork at adamsavenuebusiness.com.... If you’re still game after a day of greasy eats and street beats, there’s a bunch of good shows around town, including English hard-rock trio Band of Skulls up at Belly Up. They’re touring in support of this year’s major-label jump, By Default...London-based indie-rock band Bloc Party brings this year’s Hymns to the Observatory...right around the bend from there, Weezer teasers Geezer will be celebrating Pinkerton at Bar Pinkerton...Jamaican ska band the Skatalites swings into Casbah with Monkey...From Jackson, Mississippi, Southern-rockers the Weeks set up at Blonde Bar (the old Bar Dynamite) in Mission Hills...while Soda Bar stages Boston emocore punks Piebald, who are on their first tour in ten years.
