San Diego garage wreckers the Schizophonics will headline sets at Belly Up Thursday night. If you’ve yet to catch Mr. and Mrs. Beers’ special brand of soulful blues-rock, you’re missing one of the best live acts in town — like Black Keys with a James Brown booster shot! As far as recorded output from the showstoppers, 2015’s Ugly Things single release “Put Your Weight On It” + “Red Planet” is it until further notice, which should be coming soon, as they started recording the full-length debut with Mike Kamoo last summer. Taken by Canadians, the Paragraphs, and Electric Mud will fill the locals-only bill on the Solana Beach stage.... Upthataway, at the Loft at UCSD, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton will be “playing guitar, banjo, piano, and violin, among other instruments, to fully assimilate the blues idiom of the 1920s and ’30s — the blues of Bessie Smith and Lonnie Johnson, Fats Waller and ‘Blind’ Lemon Jefferson,” according to the Wall Street Journal.... Soda Bar stages borderland bands Mint Field, San Pedro El Cortez, and the Yip Yops. Tijuana’s noise-pop shoegazers Mint Field, who played a set at last year’s Coachella(!), this year pared from trio to duo — Amor Amezcua and Estrella Sánchez — and will release their “upcoming debut album, which does not have a release date yet, some time this year” (Billboard).

Garage-rock ghouls the Creepy Creeps will play their haunted surf-rock at Bar Pink on Friday!

Friday 13
Surf-rock organ-grinders Creepy Creeps headline sets by Alvino & the Dwells and the Goldettes at Bar Pink Friday night. Creepy Creeps, who often dress in ghoulish garb — mariachi skeletons, caveman drag, green goblins — is made up of players from the Locust, Struggle, and Tarantula Hawk and won best live band at the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. If you like old-school garage rock with a haunted Ventures bent, Creeps are your thing.... Sublime with Rome is the rejiggered remains of Sublime, the Long Beach–based dub-rock hit machine (“What I Got,” “Santeria”), featuring Sublime bassist Eric Wilson and SoCal singer/guitarist Rome Ramirez, who takes the place of departed Sublime founder and songwriter Bradley Nowell. It was Nowell’s estate that stopped the band from using the original name. Notable drummer Josh Freese (the Vandals, Devo) rounds out the trio that performs the songs of Sublime, which Mr. Nowell’s estate apparently could not stop. Touring in support of last year’s ska-bent Sirens record, Sublime with Rome is sure to pack the House of Blues downtown on Friday and Saturday nights.... Else on Friday: rock and roll revue the Little Richards (featuring the aboveforementioned Schizophonics and the Zeros’ Robert “El Vez” Lopez), the Alice Bag Band, and the Widows fill a retro bill at Casbah...L.A.’s funk’d-up Latin hip-hop sextet Ozomatli brings the party to the Music Box in Little Italy...pop-punk trio MxPx will play Observatory North Park...Journey tribute DSB will be at Belly Up honoring the SanFran classic-rock band’s induction into the Rock Hall of Fame this year...while Whistle Stop stages indie-eclectic sets by Winter (L.A.), Lavender Blush (SF), and Quali (here).

Scottish singer/songwriter Midge Ure (Ultravox, Thin Lizzy) takes the stage at Casbah on Saturday.

Saturday 14
The Midge Ure Band takes the Casbah stage on Saturday. Scottish singer/songwriter Ure is best known for his stint in Thin Lizzy and then synthpop originators Ultravoz (“Vienna,” “Dancing with Tears in My Eyes”), but Ure also co-wrote charity track “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, he has a doctorate in art and a doctorate in music from the University of Edinburgh, and last year he received a lifetime achievement award at the Acoustic Festival of Britain. So, yeah. San Diego’s own “dark, sexy and sinister” Warsaw (ex-Ilya) opens the show.... Tig Notaro will perform a comedy set at Observatory North Park. The actress, podcast star (“Professor Blastoff”), and cancer survivor also plays drums and guitar and grew up a Kiss fan, a band she bested when her 2012 comedy album Live outsold Kiss’ Monster, which debuted the same week.... Best of the rest Saturday night finds Supersonic Dragon Wagon and Seattle’s Sun Giants splitting a heavy-rock bill at Tower Bar...while award-winning SanFran blues band Tommy Castro & the Painkillers numb yer bum at Belly Up. The B.B. King Entertainer of the Year is touring in support of last year’s groovy-blues Alligator album Method to My Madness.
