San Diego Shows–Wednesday, March 10
PLAN A: Dawes, Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons, Jason Boesel @ The Loft at UCSD. Sure hope you checked out our Dawes feature in last week’s issue. The L.A. foursome play affecting canyon folk that should appeal to fans of The Byrds and Buffalo Springfield. And with a parallel sound, Cory Chisel and Co. are definitely worth showing up early for. PLAN B: The Silent Comedy, Transfer, Mata Leon @ The Casbah. Two of San Diego’s best local bands will make your humpday before they head off to represent at South by Southwest. Bon voyage, boys. Make us proud. BACKUP PLAN: Sofia Talvik @ Acoustic Music San Diego.
OTHER COOL STUFF:
Throwback Trunk Show @ Soda Bar. Ah, the ’60s and ’70s. Fashion-wise, the style was so distinct back then—not like now, when our distinct style is, well, we’re not even quite sure what it is. In the ’60s, it was all shift dresses and thick, black-rimmed glasses. And then came the ’70s with its bell-bottoms and flowy dresses. If you’re at all nostalgic for those days, and we’re sure some of you are, make sure you stop by Soda Bar at 8 p.m. for the Throwback trunk show, where local Etsy shop owners and North Park locals Sarah Sanaee and Jenea Zeek will have trunks full of vintage clothes for you to choose from. To make the night a true time warp, there’ll be psychedelic projections by Operation Mindblow, and rock ’n’ rollers The Kabbs and Chango Rey will play sets. To preview what’ll be there, check out www.lovestreetvintage.etsy.com and www.dollyrockervintage.etsy.com.
Masha Hamilton @ The Book Works. Young men from well-to-do backgrounds have always been susceptible to extremist ideologies, from Osama bin Ladin himself to “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh. So, those who say we should’ve seen Nigerian rich-kid Umar Farouk “Underwear Bomber” Abdulmutallab coming should know that author Masha Hamilton, in fact, did. In her acclaimed 2009 novel, 31 Hours, Hamilton—a veteran correspondent for The Associated Press and The Los Angeles Times—takes the reader through the last hours before a domestic suicide attack by a homegrown zealot. Hamilton will read from the novel at 7 p.m. at The Book Works, 2670 Via De La Valle in Del Mar. The event is free and open to the public.
