Man-of-a-thousand-bands plays Halloween show

Pinback, Jakubi, Kyle Craft, Morrissey, Magic Giant

Pinback
Past Event

Pinback and Buckfast Superbee

  • Saturday, October 27, 2018, 8 p.m.
  • Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows, 2223 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego
  • Not available / $35

More

It’s been around 20 years since Pinback first started making noise around town, though recordings tend to be infrequent due to the many musical projects of its members, especially man-of-a-thousand-bands Rob Crow. It’s been a half dozen years since their last full-length (though there was an EP collection last year, Some Offcell Voices), but every once in a while, Crow and Zach Smith (usually backed by drummer Chris Prescott) mark a special occasion with a special performance. This time, it’s a Halloween show at the Lafayette Hotel on October 27, where 1998 San Diego Music Award-winning Best New Artist Buckfast Superbee will also be celebrating two decades on the local scene. The bill includes piano-centric punk-jazz locals Gods of Mount Olympus, who released a self-titled EP in February via Bird Attack Records.

Jakubi
Past Event

Jakubi

  • Sunday, October 28, 2018, 8 p.m.
  • Casbah, 2501 Kettner Boulevard, San Diego
  • 21+ / $12

More

On October 28, Melbourne, Australia quintet Jakubi returns to town for the first time in three years to make their Casbah debut. A sort of family band fronted by brothers Jerome and Jacob Farah, alongside cousins Jesse Rehaut and Adam Kane and longtime friend Rob Amoruso, the group first earned notice in 2012 with a series of singles displaying their knack for soul-infused pop and hip-hop tracks. It’ll be interesting to see what they sound like after hitting L.A. a couple of years ago to work with a series of potential hitmakers, including Grammy-winning producer Eric Hudson (Kanye West, John Legend). The just-released first single for their new label Liberator Music, “Worry Bout a Thing,” is so upbeat and full of whoop-whoops that it sounds more like it was recorded at a warehouse party than a studio.

Kyle Craft
Past Event

Kyle Craft

  • Friday, November 9, 2018, 8 p.m.
  • Soda Bar, 3615 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego
  • 21+ / $12

More

Louisiana-raised, Austin-seasoned troubadour Kyle Craft apparently liked the TV show Portlandia enough to relocate to Portland, where he signed to Sub Pop and released a debut album, Dolls of Highland, in 2016. It was a respectable, if inauspicious, nationwide debut, but few were falling over themselves to heap praise. His next left turn was both unexpected and successful, an album covering female artists like Jenny Lewis, TLC, Patti Smith, Cher, and Patsy Cline. It’s hard not to love an album like that, with both brave and occasionally comical vocal interpretations of songs clearly never intended to be sung by someone whose warbly vocal affectation tends to sound like a Neil Young 33 1/3rpm played on 45. His newest, Full Circle Nightmare, is an entirely autobiographical effort, with a support tour due to hit Soda Bar on November 9.

Morrissey
Past Event

Morrissey

  • Saturday, November 10, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
  • Jacobs Music Center/Copley Symphony Hall, 750 B Street, San Diego
  • Not available

More

It seems like, whenever former Smiths singer and very vocal vegetarian Morrissey comes to town, he’s got something to bitch about that wastes at least as much time as it would have taken to give us “Everyday is Like Sunday” or “Suedehead.” He cut short a 2007 Viejas Bayside show after complaining from the stage about security guards roughing up patrons, though why he decided to punish those patrons by refusing to go back onstage was never made clear. He and his band appeared at Valley View Casino Center a few years ago wearing SeaWorld Sucks T-shirts and screened animal slaughterhouse footage while they played “Meat is Murder,” prompting annoyed boos and hisses from a handful of (nonetheless prepaid) ticketholders. Morrissey’s upcoming November 10 set at Jacobs Music Center is part of a short California theater tour promoting last year’s Low in High School album. The announcement came with a link to a video for a surprisingly bouncy track, “Spent the Day in Bed,” which sounds for all the world like Mike and the Mechanics, especially the dreamy chorus that praises a lazy day of “No bus, no boss, no rain, no train, no emasculation, no castration.” Leave it to Morrissey to make a bummer out of a day off.

Magic Giant
Past Event

Magic Giant

  • Monday, December 31, 2018, 8 p.m.
  • Irenic, 3090 Polk Avenue, San Diego
  • All ages / $39.50

More

Don’t be fooled by the man-buns and pants tucked into their shoes, L.A. folk rockers Magic Giant aren’t just the Scooby Doo version of Mumford and Sons. Sample a few of their earliest tracks, many recorded in their own solar powered mobile recording studio, and you’ll find a young trio dedicated to living green and promoting environmentalism, all in the context of a festival-friendly, musically adventurous jam band. Even their merch is environmentally sound, made at a paper-free, solar powered manufacturer, because “Our mission is to dance with an eco-footprint and create products as unique as the people rocking them,” according to their website. A debut album called In the Wind was recorded in a converted 1940s bomb shelter and released in two versions, electric and acoustic, earning them a nod from Rolling Stone as one of “Ten Artists You Need To Know.” Tunes like the recent single “Window” show a keen and ironic sense of humor, matched by multi-instrumental chops that incorporate everything from banjo and woodwinds to viola and cello. They’ve played San Diego a little over a half dozen times since 2014, but their New Year’s Eve appearance at the Irenic will be their first performance at the all-ages North Park venue.
