San Diego Shows–Monday, Feb. 8

February 8, 2010 - 8:31 am

PLAN A: Langhorne Slim, April Smith and the Great Picture Show @ The Casbah. Like Cool J, ladies love Slim. No, he doesn’t have awesome lips or a Kangol, but he does have grandiose indie folk songs in which he loves ’em and leaves ’em, only to return to love ’em again. It’s all a little earnest for my tastes, but I’m probably just jealous. PLAN B: Jake Shimabukuro, Makana @ Belly Up. OK, I’ll admit it: Watching a “ukulele virtuoso” on a Monday night sounds about as appealing as judging a Sublime tribute band competition. But you gotta peep Shimabukuro on YouTube. The guy takes four nylon strings and some serious fret skills and makes it rock. BACKUP PLAN: Mañanaland @ Bar Leucadian.

OTHER COOL STUFF:

The Touchies, Starcrossed, Aron P, TMOF @ Ruby Room.

Blackout Party @ Riviera Supper Club.

Lady Dottie and The Diamonds @ U-31.

The Styletones @ Bar Pink.
