Jamul: pre-postapocalyptic show with Batwings, Innerds, and California Bleeding

Where do we party once the bomb drops? The Greek Sombrero in Jamul is one place to start.

“It is no secret that San Diego is a military target,” writes vox/guitarist Bobby Bray of post-prog-skronk space-tropicalia math lounge duo Innerds (members of Sleeping People, The Locust, Holy Molar).

“There are of course a number of reasons why this is so: it is the home of General Atomics (the company that developed the Predator Drone), home of the largest naval base on the west coast, and the home port of the USS Karl Vinson (the ship that buried Osama Bin Laden’s body at sea), etc. As US drones continually strike Pakistan (a nuclear-armed nation), does the likelihood of something like an atomic bomb going off in a city like San Diego increase? Is San Diego purposeful bait?

“At this point the American collective consciousness has acclimated to postapocalyptic imagery. It has pretty much come to a point where the term ‘postapocalyptic’ no longer requires a hyphen. So begins the Pre-postapocalyptic genre.

“This show is the first in a series which aims to reexamine our physical place in the world. Depending on the strength of a nuclear detonation in San Diego, certain areas on the outskirts of the city would survive, such as Jamul. For this reason the unlikely location of the Greek Sombrero was chosen as the venue for this show - perhaps the only place to see a local show in the future!

“This is a social/musical experiment. Join us as we step into the unknown caverns of the Greek Sombrero. We aren’t quite sure what to expect.”

What you can expect at the free Saturday, February 23 conclave are über-hyper-polyrhythms and falsetto yawps from Innerds:

No wave post-punk hijinks at the behest of Batwings:


And schizophrenic avant doom jazz sagas conducted by California Bleeding (members of Alioth and Dead Animal Mod):


According to the Java and Google Maps-based projections from Ground Zero II, Jamul would withstand a Downtown San Diego blast from all known extant types of nuclear bomb.

However, a B53 - the largest Cold War H-bomb in the U.S. arsenal – would have an impact extending beyond Jamul to the East, almost reaching Del Mar to the North, and just past Downtown Tijuana to the South.

A B53 is about the size of a minivan, but the last remaining model was dismantled in October 2011.

The largest man-made explosion to date was the Tsar Bomba dropped as propaganda by the Soviet Union in 1961.

Effects from a Tsar Bomba dropped on Downtown San Diego would be felt as far as Carlsbad, Tecate, and Rosarito.

“There is a sense of dark humor associated with this show, but an atomic bomb going off is something that could really happen here," Bray writes.

"How does any reasonable, conscientious person make sense of these facts? It’s kind of like when something horrible happens but you accidentally smile as some kind of defensive mechanism. That’s what this show is. That is what the Pre-postapocalyptic genre was founded on: an awkward uneasy joke that is almost too serious to face.”
