PLAN A: Alela Diane @ The Loft at UCSD. She looks and sounds like a classic California hippie, and with good reason—Diane hails from the same Nevada City, Calif., zip code as fellow folkie Joanna Newsom. Coincidentally, weird-beard genius composer Terry Riley lives there, too. It’s like, totally cosmic, or something. PLAN B: Steel Pulse @ House of Blues. When I played baseball in the ninth grade, this guy Jordan would make us to listen to Steel Pulse, Alpha Blondy and Eek-A-Mouse on the way to games. I didn’t have a choice; too young to drive, I was forced into a mellow, pseudo-Rastafarian hell. Only later did I discover that Steel Pulse’s Earth Crisis is a stone-cold classic reggae album. BACKUP PLAN: The Devil Makes Three, Old Man Markley, Long Live Logos @ The Casbah. –Todd Kroviak

Quick Picks:

Young Love, Funeral Party, Big Moves @ Porter’s Pub

Autotonic, Ninja Love @ Ken Club
