San Diego Shows–Thursday, April 22

April 22, 2010 - 7:16 am

PLAN A: Bostich + Fussible, Revulab, Mister Mustard @ The Casbah. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a band headline The Casbah twice in one month, but considering all the post-show hype that followed the performance earlier this month by Bostich + Fussible (above), the Nortec Collective side-project, consider this your second chance to see their highly danceable mix of electro, Norteño and pre-recorded TJ street sounds. And show up early for Mister Mustard, which is a really cool Beatles-remix project from local Gabe Lehner (of Inspired Flight and Metrofique). PLAN B: River City, Evangenitals, Little Hurricane @ Winston’s. An Ocean Beach hootenanny? Why the hell not? Local country outfit River City have developed quite a following for their raucous live shows, the more bluesy Little Hurricane live up to their name and I’m loving the rootsy sounds of the female-fronted Evangenitals. Now, about that name…. BACKUP PLAN: The Mashtis, Neon Cough, Pelican Sam, Samhears @ Radio Room.

OTHER COOL STUFF:

“Pop Thursdays” @ Museum of Photographic Arts. It’s hard to believe that Blade Runner was a box-office dud. Ridley Scott’s vision of 2019 Los Angeles, about a cop (played by Harrison Ford) hunting down genetically engineered humans (replicants), changed the sci-fi genre forever and has since been selected for preservation at the Library of Congress and called one of the greatest American films of all time by the American Film Institute. It’s one of the few movies you get something new out of with each viewing, and if you haven’t seen it, you owe it to yourself to hit up the Pop Thursday event at the Museum of Photographic Arts for drinks and a screening of the film (which starts at 8 p.m.). Otherwise, the moment, to paraphrase Rutger Hauer in the movie, will be lost in time like tears in rain. $6.
