San Diego Shows–Monday, July 26
PLAN A: Snuffaluffagus, Father Figures, Ben Lear, Fungi Girls @ Tin Can Ale House. This lineup couldn’t be any more diverse: Between Father Figures’ skronky free jazz and Fungi Girls’ janky surf-rock, there’s a whimsical folk opera by Ben Lear about a boy, his lover and an island of trash in the middle of the Pacific. PLAN B: Zombie Surf Camp, The Slow Poisoner, Nerve Meter @ Soda Bar. Walk in during one of The Slow Poisoner’s spooky songs about witches and zombies and you’d swear you’d wandered onto the set of a campy Troma film. BACKUP PLAN: Schitzophonics, The Mashtis, The Canton Mudders, Happy Ron @ The Casbah.
