San Diego Shows–Saturday, July 24

July 24, 2010 - 10:52 am

PLAN A: Boris, Saade, Brainticket DJs @ The Casbah. Japan’s Boris made it big when they released the gnarly psych-metal album Pink in 2005. Their drone-y jams of recent years are more uneven, but their live show is still awesome—and really fucking loud. Plan B: Tan Dollar, Weed Diamond, Dash Jacket, The Endless Bummer, Surveyor @ Che Café. Lo-fi usually refers to recording quality, but I’d expect Tan Dollar to sound just as scratchy onstage with their cheap-sounding keyboards, drawn-out synth drones and washed-out vocals—though they do have some guitar. In keeping with the night’s theme, Weed Diamond and Dash Jacket make hazy indie-rock with echoing vocals. BACKUP PLAN: Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube @ 4th & B.
