Sunday's punk day, Run the Jewels on Monday

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

Rap duo Run the Jewels will rock the Observatory mics Monday night!
Rap duo Run the Jewels will rock the Observatory mics Monday night!
Local indie hit Pall Jenkins will join the Art Unites show at the Soda on Sunday.

Sunday 29
Sunday’s punk day, as Death Eyes and Stalins of Sound rage under the spire at Tower Bar...and Age of Collapse and Endless Nameless spin a pit at Whistle Stop.... Something more subtle? Dreams Made Flesh (ex-Ilya), Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), Le Chateau, and J Splat, spinning a vinyl trip-hop set, will fill an Art Unites bill at Soda Bar. Art Unites’ mission statement reads “Exhibition of diverse art forms to promote respect for all and support music education programs for youth in San Diego.” A bunch of visual artists will represent as well. I’m down. You down?... 91X jock Tim Pyles’s Loudspeaker Live hosts a freebie at Casbah featuring eclectic sets by ex-Barbarians Well Well Well (“Easy listening for uneasy people”), AJ Froman (progressive psychedelic), and out of Santa Cruz, Boostive (dub, soul, hip-hop).

Gaslamp Killer will open the show for Run the Jewels at the Observatory and then head down to Casbah for an Anti-Monday date at the Middletown mainstay.

Monday 30
Renegade rap duo El-P and Killer Mike of Run the Jewels have dropped what many critics are already calling the rap album of the year with Run the Jewels 3, “a call to arms ushering in a new era in protest music,” as one rap writer puts it; “banger on banger on banger on banger on banger...,” according to another. It is all that — angry, inciting — but it’s also an ode to the enduring artistic commitment between these two singular talents and their friendship. Not since the Beasties’ heyday have we heard voices flow together, heavy then humorous, like El-P and Mike’s. They play Observatory North Park on Monday night with our own Gaslamp Killer, who will also appear at Casbah later that evening.... Also on Monday: Soda Bar stages L.A. indie-rocker D.A. Stern, who is touring in support of his brand-new record Aloha Hola: “Like a modern Harry Nilsson, Dylan, or post-Beatle record, an album of melancholic love dirges for the loss of girls, booze, and life itself,” according to the Soda site...while NYC’s five-piece femme fatale blues group Jane Lee Hooker hits the Hideout right down the street...and Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley sets up at Belly Up behind his new album, Origins Vol. 1, a covers collection that describes a good day on classic-rock radio (Cream, Stones, Hendrix, Kinks, Lizzy, Zepplin, Troggs, Free, and Kiss, Kiss, Kiss).

Portland's "tender grunge" band Aan pulls into Whistle Stop on Tuesday.

Tuesday 31
Portlandian band Aan is on a Left Coast tour and will disembark at the Whistle Stop on Tuesday. The four-piece experimental pop band (or as they would have it, “heavy pop, tender grunge”) is out to tout Dada Distractions, “an analog album with a warm early ’70s vibe.” San Diego’s own Exasperation opens the show.... Else: Soda Bar stages St. Paul indie-folkies Communist Daughter after our own Cardinal Moon and the Lulls...while local indie rockers Mittens and Hiroshima Mockingbirds split a Radio Halloran bill at the Merrow in Hillcrest.

Wednesday 1
I am out of room, so real quik, Humpnight hits like this: former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty will do what he does these days (The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns) at Belly Up after Heatus warms the room...an L.A. Weekly “best band,” the garage-pop trio Dead Ships, drifts into Casbah...the Walcotts, an Americana nonet from Los Angeles, plays the Soda Bar after our own caravan band Quel Bordel...and that riot-folk punker from Winnipeg, Greg Rekus, will stomp, spit, and accost his acoustic at Tower Bar.
