"Makeout Weird is a great place to bring a first date," Monsterpussy, co-host of the eclectic monthly event at Whistle Stop Bar (2236 Fern Street – South Park), told The Reader last April.

This Thursday, January 17, Tijuana doom-folk troubadour Late Nite Howl will be on hand to facilitate the strange love.

A solo project of All My Friends music festival organizer Pablo Dodero, Late Nite Howl evokes Syd Barrett circa Madcap Laughs, a minimalist Nick Drake, and the more haunting aspects of Mark Kozelek.

Local trio Dead Animal Mod (members of California Bleeding) fuse the heavy, unrefined textures of the early ‘80s Touch and Go roster with spasmodic outbursts, time-bending polyrhythms, and screeching space outs to forge a wall of no wave noise all their own.

“Dead Animal Mod are part of a secret underground of San Diego,” writes Makeout Weird co-host Freak Sauce.

“They gather in their secret Sherman Heights bunker and decipher hidden innate patterns revealing primal psychological truths via sound! Too often our ability to discover these elusive complex patterns is washed away by day to day contemporary life in western societies, but Dead Animal Mod finds, documents, and presents them live and in person!”

Resident DJs Mnstrpsy and Freak Sauce will command the decks along with guest DJ Xavier V, the former technical director for KPBS's The Lounge, head of Studio 6608, and host of web radio aXiom sound system.

Makeout Weird’s monthly art installment features work by Yerrie Choo and Ego War and jewelry by The Serene Collection.

Thursday also marks the return of Makeout Weird’s signature drink, the Weird Güero - a White Russian with a Mexican twist.

No cover, forever.
