San Diego Shows–Sunday, Aug. 1
PLAN A: Kinky Friedman, Mojo Nixon @ Belly Up. With his cowboy hat and Texas twang, the eminently quotable Friedman writes goofily controversial songs like “They Ain’t Makin’ Jews Like Jesus Anymore” and “I’m Proud to Be an Asshole from El Paso.” He’s also expounded on various topics on cable-news networks, and he once ran for Texas governor. BACKUP PLAN: Otep, The Birthday Massacre, Beneath the Sky, The Agonist, Unset @ Brick by Brick.
