Effortless proficiency on Dobro, mandolin, acoustic bass, piano, sax, and even the clarinet and bassoon

John Jorgenson Quintet

John Jorgenson is one of the first and few guitarists since the late Dick Dale or Stanley Jordan to so quickly establish an instantly recognizable signature sound. His playing can easily be picked out from that of his many collaborators in the Desert Rose Band and the Hellecasters, so it must take a set of confident and accomplished players to match his acoustic mastery in a concert setting. The guy can pretty much compete with anyone brave enough to climb up on stage with him, on just about any instrument they favor, given Jorgenson’s seemingly effortless proficiency on Dobro, mandolin, acoustic bass, piano, sax, and even the clarinet and bassoon. Buddy Cage of the New Riders of the Purple Sage once got into a pedal steel guitar battle with Jorgenson at a long-gone Mission Valley nightclub called Banx that local players still refer to in hushed whispers as one of the most jaw-dropping must-have-sold-their-souls-to-the-devil performances ever staged in this town. The John Jorgenson Quintet arriving at the Museum of Making Music on August 24 is somewhat of a gypsy jazz ensemble, incorporating elements of Greek, Latin, and Romanian music and presented in a somewhat rock and roll five-piece format, eschewing indulgent solos in favor of constant five-finger punches. Jorgenson will be backed by Jason Anick (violin), Max O’Rourke (guitar), Simon Planting (bass), and Rick Reed (percussion). The Carlsbad music museum has announced a concert season that also includes fingerstyle guitarist Adrian Legg (March 30), the Daniel Ho Trio (April 6), Irish folk rockers Seamus Egan Project (April 13), and classical string trio Harpeth Rising (April 20).

Damned Things
Past Event

The Damned Things and Crobot

  • Saturday, May 25, 2019, 8 p.m.
  • Brick by Brick, 1130 Buenos Avenue, San Diego
  • 21+

After around seven years of silence since their debut release Ironiclast, hard rock star amalgam the Damned Things will drop a new album on April 26 via Nuclear Blast, High Crimes, with a support tour due to hit Brick by Brick a month later, on May 25. The group has shifted the lineup slightly, having lost former Anthrax (and current Volbeat) guitarist Rob Caggiano and Shiner bassist Josh Newton. However, the roster still features all high caliber players with the kind of marquee pedigree that could populate an entire Wayne’s World soundtrack: Every Time I Die singer Keith Buckley, Alkaline Trio bassist Dan Andriano, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, and two members from Fall Out Boy, guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley. The video for the lead single “Cells” kicks right off in full airplane takeoff roar, with Buckley screaming defiantly about how “I’m a sinful man” and how “you fucked up all my plans.” It’s a frenzied studio performance, filmed in staccato snippets that include almost subliminally brief shots of the band members in between takes, wound down in decompression mode, which by juxtaposition makes all the tats flying around in the camera’s face that much more frenetic. The bill includes Pennsylvania rockers Crobot.

Supersuckers
Past Event

Supersuckers and Speedealer

  • Sunday, May 26, 2019, 8 p.m.
  • Soda Bar, 3615 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego
  • 21+ / $15

Well, it’s about time the Supersuckers played somewhere other than the Casbah or the Belly Up! Their May 26 appearance at the Soda Bar marks the first time they’ve taken the City Heights stage since 2013. With over 30 years of history to their credit, a Supersuckers setlist is likely to include anything and everything, from their early Black Supersuckers material through their 1992 breakout album The Smoke of Hell, their country phase, or even split-singles they’ve done with tour mates such as the Reverend Horton Heat and Steve Earle. They’re one of those bands who’ve been on the tip of fame’s tongue for endless years, without ever quite catching that flying loogie into the bullseye. They’ve landed songs in numerous films and TV shows going all the way back to Beverly Hills 90210, and one of their tunes was even heard in an omnipresent Mountain Dew commercial. They’ve been on stages as large as Farm Aid, and they appeared on the Tonight Show, backing up superstar grandpa Willie Nelson, who played guitar on their recorded cover of his song “Bloody Mary Morning.” Sub Pop has kept their 1999 compilation How the Supersuckers Became the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World constantly in print as one of their catalog’s all-time highest and most consistent sellers. For a band that’s been around so long, it should be noted that much of their best material is fairly recent, so rest assured that this won’t be one of those rest stops along highway has-been. They’ve been more prolific with recording over the past five years than any other period in their long history, releasing a trio of top notch albums on Acetate Records between 2014 and last year; Get the Hell, Holdin’ the Bag, and Suck It. The show will be opened by amped-up Dallas rock and rollers Speedealer.

Citizen and Knuckle Puck

With members hailing from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan, Citizen makes its first headline appearance at Observatory North Park on June 1. If you don’t live in a windowless basement, you may be unfamiliar with this five-man emo band that you probably wouldn’t take a second look at if you saw one of their soporific videos while flipping through channels. Visually, they’re a model of low-key anonymity. But if you were to spin a radio dial and come across an audio track from one of their three deceptively rich and evocative albums, you’d probably either be checking the playlist readout to see who the hell this mopey angst-filled group is, or (for those with less 21st century rides) you’d be sitting in your parking space with the car still running, hoping the DJ would ID the track for you while backed-up drivers get all emo (and even aggro!) over your parking spot. Opening band Hunny began as the solo project of singer-guitarist Jason Yarger, who eventually expanded the lineup and released a debut single, “Cry For Me,” that quickly topped many tastemaker charts at Hype Machine and elsewhere. Their debut EP Pain/Ache/Loving was produced by Eric Palmquist (Trash Talk, Bad Suns) and yielded another viral hit single, “Natalie.” The bill includes Chicago pop-punk-emo band Knuckle Puck and a relatively new (since around 2015) emo group from Long Beach called Oso Oso, who released their first EP for big-time Warner Brothers subsidiary Triple Crown Records last year.
