San Diego Shows–Saturday, July 10

July 10, 2010 - 12:46 pm

PLAN A: Harlem, Sunday Times, What Laura Says, DJ Halloran @ Bar Pink. Sure, all you Dead Weather fans will see Harlem open for them at House of Blues next week. But it’d feel more natural to see this gritty Austin trio’s homespun rock at a cozy neighborhood bar. And it might be our last chance—their infectious Matador debut, Hippies, portends a future of headlining big venues. PLAN B: The Donkeys, Red Pony Clock, Derek Papa @ The Casbah. Fresh from a tour, locals The Donkeys offer up their famously mesmerizing folk-rock. Don’t miss Derek Papa, a folkie with haunting guitar licks. BACKUP PLAN: Shapes of Future Frames, New Mexico, Whqles @ Tin Can Ale House. This is one of those weeks where I wish I could be in multiple places at once. Guitar-effects wizards Shapes of Future Frames are celebrating the release of their new 7-inch.


Somali American Cultural Fest @ Market Creek Plaza. The East African country of Somalia may be a “failed state” that’s home to Islamic radicals and pirates, but the Somali people still have their delicious food, beautiful poetry and distinct music. Come celebrate this good stuff with San Diego’s Somali community—one of the largest in the country—at the Somali American Cultural Fest from 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday, July 10, at Market Creek Plaza, 310 Euclid Ave. in Southeast San Diego. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Somalia’s independence from Italy, the event will feature a fashion show and vendors selling tasty Somali foodstuffs like samosa and goat meat. The highlight of the day will be poetry readings by members of Somali Youth United, the group that organized the event. While Somalia’s instability hogs all the attention, it’s easy to overlook the Somalis’ famously rich oral history.
