San Diego Shows–Sunday, March 7

March 7, 2010 - 7:24 am

PLAN A: Rocky Votolato, Adam H Stephens, Correatown @ The Casbah. It can sometimes be difficult for singer-songwriters to bring the emotional weight of their recordings to a live performance, but Rocky pulls it off. And after a rather mixed foray into alt-country on his last record, he’s back with the killer, folk-based heartbreaker True DevotionPLAN B: Cat Party, DJs Barnesy @ Radio Room. Cat Party are definitely one of my favorite new bands. If you think no good band could ever come out of the O.C., you’re about to get your mind blown. Check out our review of their new release. Apparently, I’m not the only one who hears gold. BACKUP PLAN: The Zeros @ Bar Pink. The mostly local punk legends play a warm-up gig before heading to South by Southwest. I don’t think I have to remind you how kick-ass their last warm-up gig at Bar Pink was but if you didn’t see that one… 


Brian Fick @ Sea Rocket Bistro. San Diego photographer Brian Fick has been able to capture some sweet skateboarding action images. Maybe that’s because he’s a longtime skater himself. He does some really nice things with a fish-eye lens and has also been able to illustrate skate culture in non-action photos. His work will be on view at Sea Rocket Bistro (3382 30th St. in North Park), beginning with an opening party today from 4 to 10 p.m. Sea Rocket will make available, among other dishes, sloppy joe’s made with pastured pork and fish tacos with local, wild-caught fish, plus drink specials throughout the evening. The folks at Sea Rocket say it’ll likely get crowded, so they urge anyone wanting a relaxed dinner to get there early.

“Amnesty International Fundraiser” w/Gregory Page, Mario Escavedo, Joey Harris and Sara Petite @ Ould Sod (4 p.m.). 

“Bohemian Rap City” open mic rap night @ Kadan. Not “Bohemian Rhapsody,” as seen on sddialedin’s listings, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone whose idea of supporting local hip-hop is by not talking about it at all. In any case, I spent my birthday last Sunday at this weekly hip-hop open-mic night and had a blast. You can read all about it here and while it’s free for all, I would highly encourage you to drop a donation to host Miki Vale, who’s trying to raise enough money to go to South by Southwest. 

The Green Carpet Oscar Party @ The Loft at UCSD. Join The Loft for a night of entertainment, film and eco-friendly fashion by Green Envy Clothing and +E (Positive Energy). Walk the green carpet in your most stylish ensemble and win prizes for predicting the winners. Door at 4 p.m., show at 5.

“Laugh For Recovery” Comedy Show @ Belly Up (3 p.m.). This comedy show benefits the individuals, families and communities impacted by mental illness and substance abuse. With performances by Chris “Kid” Reid, Chris Clobber, Shayma Tash and Bob Murphy.

Summation 2009-2010 @ Escondido Municipal Gallery (3:30 p.m.). Celebrate the release of The Merging of Art and Poetry, a book by San Diego County poets with the art that inspired them. Hear from the poets and see large scale projections from the book.

Goal Dreams @ Central Library, Downtown (2 p.m.). Documentary about the Palestinian national soccer team, whose members are made up of different nationalities, speak different languages and have no home field to play on.
