Scottish alt-rockers Teenage Fanclub bring their fuzz-tone favorites to Belly Up Thursday night.

Thursday 16
She won’t be forced against her will/ Says she don’t do drugs but she does the pill/ Oh yeah...Oh yeah. That lyric from the song “The Concept” helped propel the fuzz-tone earworm and its 1991 album Bandwagonesque to worldwide cult status. The Scottish alt-rock quartet responsible for the catchy college-radio hit, Teenage Fanclub, plays Belly Up on Thursday night. The Reader’s Dryw Keltz has a chat with the “Fannies” singer/guitarist Raymond McGinley about the band’s latest record, last year’s Here, in this week’s Blurt. Luna’s Britta Phillips opens the show behind her covers-heavy debut solo album Luck or Magic.... Else on Thursday: Alaskan alt-pop band Portugal. The Man will play Observatory North Park in advance of this year’s release, Woodstock, which has been in the works for four years and will drop [insert best guess here]...local “gluten-free” singer/songwriter Mike Wojniak plays a record-release for his new one, Ad Astra, at Soda Bar. Star Halo, Justin Werner, and Ian McCartor open the show...and Casbah hosts a San Diego Music Awards showcase, featuring nominees Mittens, Le Chateau, Ypsitucky, and Grizzly Business. The SDMAs will be presented at House of Blues next Tuesday night, March 21.

Famous former San Diegan, the beat master Kid606 will open the show for Xiu Xiu at A Ship in the Woods on Friday.

Friday 17
Jamie Stewart’s art-bent indie act Xiu Xiu appears at that “vessel for cultural capital,” A Ship in the Woods, in Escondido. According to the Onion’s AV Club, on Xiu Xiu’s latest release, Forget, Stewart’s “chaotic art-pop ravings” have succumbed to “a concerted effort to serve the trio’s talents in a digestible form, with inviting and accessible results.” For Xiu Xiu, anyway. I’ve been listening to it since I started typing up this week’s thing, and they’re as wack as ever, not as dense, but still trading in weird cinema, like, David Lynch cinema. Forget is no Fabulous Muscles (personal favorite), but it is Xiu Xiu through and through. San Diego’s own Kid606 opens the show, which includes WSOHOIDPS’ latest immersive art exhibit, Wake. Read all about it/buy tix here: shipinthewoods.com/wake.... Upthatway at Belly Up, rootsicana band California Honeydrops checks in for two nights of “New Orleans second line funk, Delta blues, and Southern soul” on the Solana Beach stage.... And around town Friday night: Downs Family, Screamin’ Yeehaws, and the Grids fill a raucous bill at Casbah...Joy will headline hard-rock sets by Pharlee, Birth, and Petyr at Til-Two...while rock-n-soul locals the Routine take the stage at Soda Bar after prog-psych performances by AJ Froman and Kid Wilderness.

Spanish garage-rock trio Las Munjitas del Fuzz will headline sets at Tower Bar on Saturday.

Saturday 18
From Spain, Las Munjitas del Fuzz will join our own Loons and Schizophonics for a night of garage-rocking psych and soul at Tower Bar. Las Munjitas del Fuzz are Jorge, Felix, and Varo, and “Watch out sinners, these nuns — Sisters of the Order of the Holy Garage — intend to stop all this outrage to the rhythm of wild garage-beat-punk!” This should be the show to see Saturday night.... Not your thing? Here’s more things: after 20 years, Jacksonville’s pop-punk five-piece Yellowcard is in the midst of their final shows and will play Observatory North Park on Saturday...New York City singer/saxophonist James Chance and his Contortions hit the Hideout with their “no wave” latest, The Flesh Is Weak...L.A.’s punk’d rock mainstays Bad Religion play House of Blues...L.A.’s analog synth-rock band Fartbarf lands on the Soda stage after local alt-rockers Buddy Banter and Stalins of Sound...while Monarch, Loom, and Volcano fill a heavy-psych bill at Til-Two.
