San Diego Shows–Sunday, June 14

June 14, 2009 - 9:33 am


PLAN A: The Felice Brothers, Willy Mason @ The Casbah–Accuse them of ripping off Dylan and The Band all you want, but The Felice Brothers’ new album, Yonder is the Clock, is a fantastic blend of back-porch country and lush balladry that will get the haters on board. And Willy Mason’s 2004 track, “Oxygen,” is a modern-day folk classic. Check out the videos below. PLAN B: Grand Ole Party, Pink Snowflakes, Ride the Sun, RDG @ Ruby Room–GOP recently returned back to San Diego after recording their new album in Atlanta with producer Ben Allen. That’s especially exciting when you consider that Allen’s the same guy that was behind the boards on Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavillion. They’ll undoubtably play some of the new tracks tonight so catch em before the buzz on the new record hits. BACKUP PLAN:  Joey Harris & the Mentals, Mojo Nixon, Scottie Mad Dog Blinn, Caren & Paul Kamanski @ Brick By Brick–This is the CD release show for blues-rockers Joey Harris and the Mentals.The CD marks the first solo release from Harris—a veteran of the local scene who’s also played guitar with The Beat FarmersCountry Dick Montana and in Nixon’s band—since 1983’s Joey Harris and the Speedsters.

Quick Pick (in order of church-going-dayness): 

Jamuel Saxon, Dozal Bros., Unsexxxynerdponi @ Soda Bar

Too Many Creeps DJ Mario O & Friends @ Whistle Stop

The Tighten Ups @ Bar Pink

Black 7, Race Against Space, The Black Clouds, Decomposeurs @ Radio Room

Nikka Costa, JD Webb @ Belly Up

And, finally, if you’re a complete douche, this is where you’ll be:

She Wants Revenge, IO Echo, Great Northern @ House of Blues–Wow, this “band” is still together?
