Desert Daze, Shins, Six Organs

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

Garage-psych Seattle act Night Beats jump on the Desert Daze Caravan to Belly Up Sunday night.
Garage-psych Seattle act Night Beats jump on the Desert Daze Caravan to Belly Up Sunday night.
Funk-rock four-piece the Red Hot Chili Peppers will slappa de bass at the Valley View Casinorena Sunday night.

Sunday 5
There’re two Big Rock Shows to choose from Sunday night, as funk-rock Angelenos the Red Hot Chili Peppers take the stage at the Valley View Casino Center at the Sports Arena end of the 8....while at the SDSU end of the 8, them big-hair, big-hook Jersey boys Bon Jovi play the Viejas Arena.... But if I know you, Crawler follower, we’ll be spilling drinks on each other up at Belly Up, where the Desert Daze Caravan lines up behind the Solana Beach stage to deliver psych-bent sonics by Night Beats, Temples, JJUUJJUU, Deap Vally, and Froth. Garage-psych Seattle act Night Beats is one of my favorite current pop-rock bands and last year’s Who Sold My Generation ranks up there with some of the genre’s best and brightest burners (Brian Jonestown, Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall).... Around town Sunday night: sound-collage pop auteur Helado Negro hits the Hideout with his Asthmatic Kitty release Private Energy...London-based world-beat artiste Sinkane’s at the Soda Bar behind last month’s Life & Livin’ It...and the resurrected math-rock act Shiner’s at Casbah.

"This band will change your life": Indie hits the Shins will take the stage at the Observatory on Monday and Tuesday nights.

Monday 6
From Albuquerque, New Mexico, indie-rock band the Shins will play Observatory North Park on Monday and Tuesday nights in advance of their new album, Heartworms, which is due to drop March 10. This will be James Mercer’s first Shins release in five years, as the only Shins constant has been busy with studio rat Danger Mouse and electronic-pop band Broken Bells, and Mercer even did some acting, playing a “directionless slacker” in the feature film Some Days Are Better Than Others. Listening to teaser tracks from Heartworms as I type and — oh look, London indie hits Kid Wave opens both shows.... Else on Monday: L.A. garage-rock trio Dead Ships drifts into Casbah after our own “creep-rock” crew Taken by Canadians...L.A. electronic artist John Glenn Kunkel, aka New Division, will be at Blonde Bar in Mission Hills...while “Go Daddy-O” retro dance band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy swings into Belly Up.

Experimental "new folk" act Six Organs of Admittance plays the Soda Bar on Wednesday.

Tuesday 7
Local rock-rollers the Shifty Eyed Dogs, Dirty Pennies, and High Rolling Loners fill a five-dollar bill at Hillcrest hideaway the Merrow...from Baltimore, indie-folkies the Great American Canyon Band plays Casbah behind their new Westward EP...and the Stunt Queen Tour stops at Soda Bar, where LGBT hip-hop hits Mykki Blanco and Cakes Da Killa will rock the Normal Heights mic.

Wednesday 8
Up against it again, so real quick, Humpnight hits like this: “new folk” singer/songwriter Ben Chasny’s Six Organs of Admittance takes the Soda Bar stage in support of his new Drag City deal, Burning the Threshold...Mike Ness and his 40-years-strong punk’d-rock Cali crew Social D plays the ONP. Country-rock ANTI- Records artist Jade Jackson opens that show...Tropical Popsicle, Hexa, and Drinking Flowers (L.A.) fill an indie bill at Whistle Stop...while Sac-town’s Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel bring their rap act Blackalicious to Casbah.
