San Diego Shows–Tuesday, Jan. 5

January 5, 2010 - 9:37 am

PLAN A: Susan Narucki, Margaret Noble @ Sushi Performance & Visual Art. Remember Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron’s brilliant 2006 dystopian thriller Children of Men? Remember the soundtrack—no, not King Crimson—and the agonized violin coupled with soul-piercing arias as Clive Owen stumbled through an England without hope or shoes? The composer was John Tavener, but the soprano was experimental-classical superstar Susan Narucki, who also happens to teach at UCSD. Well, she opens the 2010 season at Sushi Performance & Visual Art as part of its “Fresh Sound Series.” Also performing will be Chicago-DJ-turned-electro-acoustic-prodigy Margaret Noble with an audio interpretation of George Orwell’s 1984. PLAN B: Boyscout, Drug Wars, Knives! @ The Casbah. Made up of local all-stars (members of Transfer and Hialeah, among others), Boyscout play anthemic instrumental rock that can appeal to fans of Explosions in the Sky and Tortoise alike. BACKUP PLAN: Melly Frances and The Distilled Spirits, The Yellow Dress, Gray Ghosts @ Tin Can Ale House. In case you missed it the first time around, check out Sarah Nardi’s great article on Gray Ghosts (above). Love those poppy tunes, kids.
