San Diego Shows–Friday, Jan. 22

January 22, 2010 - 8:16 am

PLAN A: Rat’s Eyes, Age of Collapse, Death Crisis, FKENAL @ The YardWatching three of the best local hardcore bands on a makeshift stage in someone’s backyard in a still-sketchy part of the East Village just might be the only way to do it. But if that’s not incentive enough, the $5 suggested cover goes to help local musician Matt Kelly, who was hit by a truck in December and is still recovering in the hospital. PLAN B: Myth, Illuminauts, Inspired Flight @ Tin Can Alehouse. I’m not sure what to expect from Myth, a new collaboration between hip-hopper Addiquit and boyfriend Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession, Three Mile Pilot, et al.), but even if it’s a total bust, electronic acts Illuminauts and Inspired Flight are more than enough reason to hit this up. PLAN C: Carlton Livingston, Lady Ann, Carl Meeks @ Ruby Room. Around since the ‘80s, Livingston is the Marvin Gaye of reggae. A smooth voice that’s good for grooving in the club or under the sheets. BACKUP PLAN: Maren Parusel, Maus Haus @ Bar Pink. 

OTHER COOL STUFF:

“Dance For Haiti” @ Kava Lounge.  Features DJs Bassmechanic, Baquai?, Eric Yo!, Puppy Kicker, Ghost MD, Jon Wesley, Mateo Bambaataa, Brenton and art by Billy Martinez, Martin Sklar and Bryen Beglinger. $5 suggested donation. All proceeds benefit Red Cross Haiti Relief & Development Fund. 

Andy Moor, Victoire Dinaire, Sharky @ Voyeur. While still certainly danceable, Brit Andy Moor specializes in sexy trance that’s a nice alternative to the overzealous big-beat DJs playing the rest of Downtown.

Felix Da Housecat, DJ Riley Hilliard @ Spin.

The Paddle Boat, Black Mamba @ Whistle Stop.

The Dave & Deke Combo, The Bedbreakers, The Rumblers, Bill Cardinal and the Canyon Band @ The Casbah.
