Boytoy, Planet B, Wu-Tang, and Wand

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

L.A.-based psychonauts Wand take the Soda Bar stage on Wednesday.

Up-and-coming Brooklyn band Boytoy brings their summer hummers to Blonde Bar Sunday night.

Sunday 19
Grrrl presents Brooklyn’s Boytoy at Blonde Bar Sunday night. NYLON called Boytoy’s debut, Grackle, “catchy, fun, and addictive, floating somewhere between ’60s surf jams and ’90s grunge rock,” while Rolling Stone suggested we, “stretch out on the beach and crank up your headphones.” We do that, anyway, but these ladies look hella fun, so I’m down. Plus, I haven’t been to Blonde Bar yet. Local nu-gaze duo Vakoum and L.A.’s “formidable poltergeist of sound and fury” New Evil will open the show.... Else on Sunday: Soda Bar stages that slide-guitar blues-stomp one-man band Bob Log III after our own Badabing and the Bassics...proggy jam band Umphrey’s McGee is at the ONP behind last year’s Zonkey...coupla D.C. indie acts touring through town, Sea Life and Den-Mate, will split a bill at the Whistle Stop in South Park...while metal guitarist John 5 (David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie) and his Creatures headline hard-rock sets by Taz Taylor, Aniridia, and this week’s Of Note band, Dirty Puppets, at Brick by Brick in Bay Park.

East Coast hip-hop hits Wu-Tang Clan play the Observatory on Monday.

Monday 20
The 25-years-strong East Coast hip-hop crew Wu-Tang Clan, featuring RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna, takes the stage at Observatory North Park Monday night...which is also Three One G’s Planet B night at Blonde Bar, this week featuring Captured Tracks recording artists the Reptaliens, Fever Creep (with members of the Locust), Qui, and Psychomagic...and it’s Anti-Monday night at Casbah, with the English poet, spoken-word artist, heady MC Kate Tempest, whose story-centric record Let Them Eat Chaos is one of last year’s most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums.

Tuesday 21
As mentioned earlier, the San Diego Music Awards will be presented at the House of Blues on Tues., with performances by Schizophonics, Creepy Creeps, Hirie, the Verigolds, Steph Johnson and the Voices of Our City Choir, and Gilbert Castellanos..... If you’re not into awarding, L.A.’s funk-rock favorites the Red Hot Chili Peppers bounce into the Valley View Casinorena behind last year’s record, The Getaway...Ganja White Knight and Boogie T split an electronica bill at Casbah...while Philly-based indie-folkie Allison Crutchfield (ex-Waxahatchee) headlines sets by Pitchfork’s “indie-rock game changer” Vagabon (NYC) and local “lounge grunge” band Big Bloom at Blonde Bar.

That new wave group that melts with you, Modern English, takes the Casbah stage on Wednesday.

Wednesday 22
In celebration of ListenSD’s ten-year anniversary (good on y’all!), Soda Bar waves a psych-bent Wand Wednesday night after Glen (Octagrape) Galloway’s new joint, Sumatraban, and borderland garage-rock band San Pedro El Cortez. Last year I wrote, “For those of you who wish Tame Impala had a little more Ass, psychedelic heavies Wand will satisfy your rock itch while tickling your ears with gooey pop goodness. From T. Rex to the Butthole Surfers to Wand cohort Ty Segal, the L.A. band’s back-to-back releases Ganglion Reef and Golem have revitalized an overly reverbing psych genre with straightahead sonics, power riffage, and glassine vocals.” The only thing I’d add is back-to-back-to-back releases, including last year’s Drag City record 1000 Days, which brings a flicker of folk to their blown-out sound. Nice. See you at Soda Bar Wednesday night.... And alsos: the British new-wave group Modern English, best known for their 1982 nuclear love song “I Melt With You,” is back with a new album, Take Me to the Trees. Reader contributor Andrew Hamlin gets singer Robbie Grey on the phone to discuss the record and reunion after 25 years in this week’s “I melt fantastic” Blurt. They play Casbah after local post-punks Underpass...while psych-pop duo Inspired & the Sleep headlines a locals-only showcase at Belly Up that includes alt-rock trio Sights & Sages and super groovy newbies Aviator Stash.
