San Diego Shows–Tuesday, Aug. 3
PLAN A: Fruit Bats, These United States, Breathe Owl Breathe @ The Casbah. You can’t deny the perfect combo of Fruit Bats’ thoughtful folk-rock tunes, These United States’ pedal-steel guitar and a few shots of Jack Daniels. PLAN B: YellowFever, New Mexico, Roxy Jones @ Soda Bar. Preferring to make her own food while on tour, YellowFever’s Jennifer Moore recently got arrested in the Houston airport for leaving a kitchen knife in her carry-on—which says as much about our dysfunctional legal system as the hippie-dippy nature of the Austin duo’s softhearted garage-pop. BACKUP PLAN: Jeans Wilder, Peaking Lights, Metal Rouge, Sam Hamilton @ Tin Can Ale House.
