San Diego Shows–Sunday, July 25

July 25, 2010 - 6:00 am

PLAN A: Sleepy Sun, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, Miranda Lee Richards @ The Casbah. There are plenty of bands that borrow Black Sabbath’s giant rock riffs and Led Zeppelin’s earthy psych-rock tones—and most of them do a crappy job of it. But on their excellent new album, Fever, California sextet Sleepy Sun infuse their classic-rock vibe with stunning guy-gal harmonies and Latin touches. PLAN B: Silian Rail, The Burning of Rome @ Bar Pink. Not since I saw Hella have I heard such mind-blowing interplay as that between Oakland guitar-drum duo Silian Rail. Just wait till you see drummer Eric Kuhn hold down a complex beat while playing guitar. PLAN C: Sick of it All, 50 Lions, Alpha & Omega, Take Offense @ Che Café. Old-school NYC hardcore band Sick of it All captures in song what it must feel like to get beaten down by a pack of angry skinheads. BACKUP PLAN: Random Gibberish, The Megas, Kirby Krackle @ Dream Street.
