San Diego Shows–Thursday, Feb. 18
PLAN A: Le Castle Vania, Vega, Salter & Diaz @ Voyeur. When it comes to Voyeur, there are a few “Wow, you should have been there” nights that became legendary via Twitter and Facebook. Bloody Beetroots and Boys Noize come to mind, and I fully expect Le Castle Vania’s dirty-South electro bounce to have a few people calling in sick on Friday. Be there. PLAN B: The Damned, Fing @ The Casbah. Oh, I can hear you in my head now. Seth, how can you have one of the greatest punk bands of all time as Plan B following some hipster electro shit? Well, because The Damned is already sold out, silly! So think of it like this: Plan A: Bank. Plan B: craigslist. Plan C: The Damned. Plan D: Rejoice.. BACKUP PLAN: Mauger @ The Loft.
OTHER COOL STUFF:
Culture Clash in AmeriCCa @ San Diego Repertory Theater. Surely, pioneering anthropologists Bronislaw Malinowski, Franz Boas and Margaret Mead could never have guessed that one day their fieldwork methods would be applied to comedy. In 2001, actor-writers Richard Montoya, Ricardo Salinas and Herbert Siguenza—known as the Culture Clash trio—created a performance for the San Diego Repertory Theater based on anthropological interviews with the most exotic dumplings in America’s melting pot. This spring, they bring Culture Clash in AmeriCCa back to the Repertory, updated with new characters and sketches, from political activists in New York to Ugandan cab drivers in San Diego. The show starts tonight and runs through March 7, at the Horton Plaza theater.
