San Diego Shows–Saturday, May 9

GrandDuchy-02-big  HerSpaceHoliday  ok_go

PLAN A: Grand Duchy @ The Casbah. Frank Black wants to be called Black Francis again, which is a good idea, for the most part. He may be doing something softer this time out—hell, Grand Duchy is a project with his wife—but you can expect more of the skewed melodies and eccentric humor for which he’s known. PLAN B: Her Space Holiday, City Light @ The Loft at UCSD. Marc Bianchi is the eclectic one-man project known as Her Space Holiday who suddenly dropped his signature electronic musings and decided to pick up a guitar. Hope he plays some of the old stuff. PLAN C: OK Go, Jaguar Love @ House of Blues. Proof that viral videos can be the deciding factor when it comes to a band’s popularity, OK Go are most famous for their “Here it Goes Again” clip, in which the band performs a synchronized dance routine on treadmills. I dare you to name another one of their songs. BACKUP PLAN: Bob Schneider @ Belly Up Tavern. –Todd Kroviak

Quick Picks:

Gator by the Bay @ Spanish Landing Park–Music from Sara Petite & the Sugar Daddies, Billy Lee & the Swamp Critters, Curley Taylor & Zydeco Trouble, Alan Iglesias & Crossfire, etc. Basically, a who’s who of bands that have “& the” in their name, along with cajun food, workshops and shopping. Hells yeah!

Jamuel Saxon, Height with Friends, Ed Schrader @ Soda Bar

“One Nation Under A Groove” with DJ Bart Blackstone, Atari

“Ikah Love Presents” @ The Office

The Strikefits, The Bugs, The Re-Mones, The Human Record @ Radio Room
