San Diego Shows–Wednesday, Dec. 16

December 16, 2009 - 8:46 am

PLAN A: Marquez!, Bully Blinders, DJ GarGar @ The Casbah: The headliners may be playing only their third show ever (see the full feature I did on them in this week’s issue or the video of them performing here), but this’ll be Bully  Blinders’ first show. A new hip-hop project from MC Talls (The Kneehighs) and beatmaster Chad Tuthill, their debut, City of Dirt, is a banger that covers everything from politics to breakfast cereals and also features cameos from some of Daygo’s best MCs. PLAN B: Peter Squires, Marcelo Radulovich @ Ruby Room: In a perfect world, everyone who gushed over Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Go would have seen it for what it is: A self-indulgent hippie crying about some girl who got tired of his self-indulgent hippieness. Luckily, we have Peter Squires, who at least acknowledges his own vanity and adds a much-needed sense of humor to his otherwise forlorn folk (see video below). Bonus, you can download his entire new album, Woe is Me, on his websiteBACKUP PLAN: DJ Sonny @ Tin Can Ale House: He’s one-third of the Illuminauts so you know he’ll be playing some cool stuff. 

OTHER COOL STUFF: 

Lux @ Night @ Lux Art Institute: Susan Hauptman just might be one of the most talented artists that the Lux Art Institute has hosted. Her intricate, life-size self-portraits–done entirely in charcoal and pastel–really have to be seen to be believed. There will also be refreshments and live music by folkie Dawn Mitschele

“Self Portrait (as Prima Donna Bitch)” by Susan Hauptman

“RiffTrax Live: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza” @ California Center for the Arts, Escondido: In case you missed Anders Wright’s great feature in last week’s issue, the guys behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 are still at it with their new project, Rifftrax. See them rip apart classic Christmas cartoons and commercials with, bonus, “Weird Al” Yankovic in tow.
