San Diego Shows–Monday, March 1
PLAN A: The Hounds Below, Bigbang @ The Casbah. Remember The Von Bondies? If you do, you either remember frontman Jason Stollsteimer as the guy who sang “C’mon, C’mon” or as that guy who got his ass whooped by Jack White (just Google his name—the pic of the aftermath will come up). Well, he’s got a new band and they’re way better, channeling ’50s-era rock ’n’ roll that sounds like Roy Orbison one minute, latter-day Jesus and Mary Chain the next. And they even throw solid Pixies covers in there (see video below). BACKUP PLAN: The Styletones @ Bar Pink.
OTHER COOL STUFF:
Mosquito Bandito, Nice Nice @ Soda Bar.
Gregory Page, Sarah Petite, Mojo Nixon, Joey Harris @ Island Sports & Spirits Grill.
Lady Dottie and The Diamonds @ U-31.
“Teenage Wasteland” w/DJs Lord Hammer, Muchacho D-Hey @ Tin Can Ale House.
