San Diego Shows–June 24, 2010
PLAN A: Dirty Sweet, Scarlet Symphony, The Howls, DJ Morgan Young @ Fluxx. Hosted by FM 94/9’s Tim Pyles and featuring art by locals Eric Wixon, Andrew Rymer and Steven Suiter, the first live-music show at Fluxx has the makings of a memorable night. Dirty Sweet and Scarlet Symphony will rock out in high-definition over the swanky nightclub’s top-notch sound system. PLAN B: Grupo Fantasma, The Earful, DJs SK, Serge @ The Casbah. I get sweaty just thinking about Grupo Fantasma, a Grammy-nominated 10-piece from Austin, Texas, that mixes salsa, cumbia and funk with deep Afro-Cuban rhythms that demand hip-shaking. BACKUP PLAN: A Flock of Seagulls, A Dull Science @ 4th & B.
