One of the Big Rock Shows to hit town this week pairs Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Stevie Nicks and the Pretenders at Viejas Arena at SDSU. This tour, which was supposed to end last year, has reinvigorated the veteran rockers and been extended 20 dates. Nicks is enjoying some downtime from Fleetwood Mac and the success of her solo release 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault, while the Pretenders continue to tour behind their new album, Alone, Chrissie Hynde’s first record under the Pretenders moniker since 2008’s Break Up the Concrete.... A tribute to psych-n-blues supergroup Cream (Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton), Extreme Cream, featuring San Diego guitar great Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa) and Ginger’s son Kofi Baker will take the stage at Bay Park bar Brick by Brick. Why “extreme”? Mr. Keneally tends to canoodle where Mr. Clapton was concise.... Self-described as “hell’s house band,” L.A.-based Death Valley Girls hits the Hideout Thursday night after Adult Books and Spooky Cigarette. Death Valley Girls “exist in a world of ghosts, mummies, UFOs, conspiracy theories, aliens, demons, and rock & roll,” according to the L.A. Weekly, to whom the “doom boogie” band said, “Rock & roll is this wild thing that’s from outer space. It’s paranormal and it’s crazy and it affects you in this way that you can’t explain.” Give a listen to their Burger Records debut, Glow in the Dark, and see if it affects you that way.

Roots-rocking Railroad Earth rolls into Belly Up for two shows this weekend, Friday and Saturday nights.

Friday 3
The big folksy-rock band from Stillwater, New Jersey, Railroad Earth chugs into Belly Up for two shows Friday and Saturday nights. Reader rock critic Dave Good dug into the group’s milieu and reports that the “hippies with electricity” experience is a stage filled with acoustic gear that looks like your basic mix of stringed instruments but that sounds like something out of Eddie Van Halen’s gig bag. I’m paraphrasing; get Dave’s take in this week’s Of Note. FYI, these are Belly Up’s branded “evening with” showcases, meaning no opening act: doors at 8:30 on Friday, show at 9:30; doors at 8 on Saturday, show at 9 — and they do not dick around when it comes to the downbeat, so be on time.... Around town Friday night: Casbah stages a Redwoods Revue, featuring Dani Bell & the Tarantist, Birdy Bardot, Midnight Pine, Rebecca Jade & the Cold Fact, and Cardinal Moon — the common denominator here isn’t just all the beautiful leading ladies and their great big voices, it’s prolific songsmith and beat-keeping noisemaker Al Howard, who after five sets Friday night should be very ready for bed, so clear a path to his van...speaking of beautiful leading ladies, soul sister Lady Dottie and her Diamonds will rock the block downtown at the Quartyard in celebration of their second anniversary as an urban outdoors showspace. L.A. funk conductor Lonely Boy is also on the bill...while post-core emo act Senses Fail headlines sets by Counterparts, Movements, and Like Pacific at Observatory North Park...and the up-and-coming L.A.-based singer/songwriter Miya Folick plays Ché Café with Winter and Garden Echo.

SoCal skate-punk perennials Strung Out set up at Brick by Brick on Saturday.

Saturday 4
SoCal skate-punk staples Strung Out stack ’em at Brick by Brick Saturday night after punk supergroup Vulture Wake (Authority Zero, Lagwagon, Good Riddance, ALL, Drag the River) and likeminded locals Sic Waiting and Authentic Sellout for your RDA of hardcore headbangers.... Electronic Canada band Bob Moses plugs in at the Music Box behind last year’s Days Gone By: Never Enough Edition, which is a remix of the Grammy-winning duo’s 2015 remix collection Days Gone By. Whole ’nother level when you’re remixing your own remixes [cue the eyerolls]...need a change of scenery/soundery, just a hop, skip, and a stroll down to Kettner gets ya Bomb the Music Industry’s singer/songer/multi-instrumentalist Laura Stevenson, who will headline sets by our own Brawley and Jason Hanna & the Bullfighters at Casbah Saturday night...while bawdy cover band GayC/DC and Weezer teasers Geezer split a tribute bill at Soda Bar.
