San Diego Shows–Thursday, June 25

the-zeros

PLAN A: The Zeros @ Bar Pink–In case you’ve been living under a rock, the all-original lineup of San Diego’s greatest punk band (sorry all you Amenity, Swing Kids, blink-182 and Plot fans) is back together for the first time in 15 years. Yeah, they’re all pushing 50, but according to Jim Ruland–who got to sit in on one of their rehearsals and did a great story in last week’s issue–the “Mexican Ramones” seem reinvigorated and ready to bust out classics like,  “Don’t Push Me Around” and “Wild Weekend.” Get there early as this is a guaranteed hot ticket.  PLAN B: U.S. Air Sex Championships @ The Casbah–So, what is “air sex”? Well, take it from Championship co-producer Chris Tew, who told CityBeat‘s Dryw Keltz in last week’s feature: “It’s your craziest, weirdest fantasy—it’s just that you happen to be onstage and you’re doing it with an invisible partner. It’s essentially a comedy show. And the winner gets crowned a champion, which will probably lead to actual sex.” See you there, pervs. PLAN C: The Donkeys, Derek Papa @ Ken Club–Every time I see The Donkeys live they blow me away with their blend of psychedlic alt-country and harmonious sunshine pop. Their performance at Sezio’s Live@Luce Loft (check out their performance of “Bye Bye Baby” here) was a major highlight at the five-day concert series and I’ve been jonesing to see them ever since. If you ever wished The Beach Boys kept is simpler (“In The Morning”) or if the only Grateful Dead album you own is Workingman’s Dead (“Excelsior Lady”), then check these guys out. While you’re at it, buy their album, Living on the Other Side.   BACKUP PLAN: The Beatnuts, Brendan B, Higher Minds, DJ Ratstar @ Canes
