San Diego Shows–Thursday, June 4

June 4, 2009 - 1:46 pm


PLAN A: Sleeping People, Aspects of Physics, Little White Teeth @ The Casbah–Since playing their first local show in more than a year several weeks ago, Sleeping People seem to be slowly rolling back into the swing of things. And by “swing,” I mean “awkward jerking motion”—the band’s take on progressive rock singles them out as one of the least danceable, most complex groups in San Diego. Support comes from Aspects of Physics, who are apparently San Diego’s low-budget answer to Autechre, and the lovely Little White Teeth, who simply don’t play enough around here. –Todd Kroviak PLAN B: Erykah Badu @ Humphrey’s Concerts By The Bay–Opening night of Humphrey’s summer concert series is a banger. Ever see her performance in Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. Lady got so into it she ripped her own wig off! PLAN C: Designer Drugs, Saul Q. @ Beauty Bar–This New York DJ duo recently played a set at El Dorado that was off the chain. Here’s your second chance to see why your buddy couldn’t even make it to brunch on Sunday because he was so exhausted from dancing the night before.

You can read all about Little White Teeth here and my review of the last Sleeping People show (where the above photo was taken) here

Quick Picks (in order of bedazzlementedness):

The Burning of Rome, Demasiado, A Scribe Amidst the Lions, Irradio, Holding Air Hostage @ Canes–Good local lineup at the beach.

“Expressway To Yr Skull” with DJ Mario Orduno, Andrew Miller @ Soda Bar–New DJ night for Orduno

The Beat-Less, The Vaginals, The Gladstone Bags @ Tin Can Ale House

The Woggles @ Bar Pink

Make-out Party, Days of Anomie, Of Mice and Them @ Radio Room

Don’t Bore Nina, Dakotafish @ Ken Club

Atom Orr, Matt Haeck, Molly Jenson @ Lestat’s

And finally, if you’re an absolute tool, you’ll be here tonight:

Gavin Rossdale, Nico Vega @ House of Blues–Even though he shaved off Bush, Rossdale still stinks.
