San Diego Shows–Friday, August 28

August 28, 2009 - 8:19 am

PLAN A: Street Scene (duh!)–In addition to the six bands we told you to check out in this week’s issue, here’s where I’ll be for the rest of the night: 6:10-6:50: Wavves, 7:00-7:45: Mastodon, 7:50-8:10: Conor Oberst, 8:20-8:40: Anya Marina, 8:50-9:00: Deerhunter, 9:00-11:15: Chromeo and Girl Talk (above). And go here for some great choices for after parties and what not (stay tuned to our Twitter page for updates). Oh, and in case you didn’t know, there’s other shit to do besides Street Scene such as… PLAN B: “Gematria!” with Toy Selectah and Maga Bo @ Kava Lounge–The DJs and electronic acts that the Dub Traffik Control cats pull in are always solid. After all, they’re the dudes who brought you Dub Dynamite! and countless hot DJ nights at Kava comes the kickoff to this new monthly night that will include Mexican tropical and ghettotech DJ Toy Selectah, not to mention Brazilian and Mad Decent man Maga Bo. Gonna be hot and sweaty. PLAN C: Grampadrew, Kera and the Lesbians, Melly Frances and the Curls @ Tin Can Ale House–Sounds like a solid lineup of local folk and alt-country in one of the best venue to see it in. Love Grandpadrew, but hope I can get down there in time to see Kera and the Lesbians. Like what I hear on their MySpace. BACKUP PLAN: Pumice, Diamond Sleeper, Mortuary Parking, Twin Lion, Heavy Hawaii @ Che Café–As Todd Kroviak succinctly pointed out in this weeks If I Were U, Punice just might be the most underrated noise-popster on the planet. But when you’re from New Zealand, I guess it can be kind of hard to market yourself (ever see that episode of Flight of the Conchords?).
