San Diego Shows–Sunday, Aug. 15
PLAN A: Steve Aoki @ Voyeur. Attention scenesters: It’s best to arrive extra early for this one, lest you want to explain to your cool friends how you missed out on a set by Dim Mak Records founder Steve Aoki, whose take on electrohouse is wilder, more menacing and far cooler than your average house DJ. PLAN B: Adam Haworth Stephens, Miss Erika Davies @ The Casbah. Judging by the delicate folk of “The Cities That You’ve Burned,” from his forthcoming solo debut, Adam Haworth Stephens is gentler and more vulnerable than when he’s playing in San Francisco indie-rock duo Two Gallants. If you missed Miss Erika Davies at Claire de Lune on Friday, here’s your chance to see one of the best jazz singers in the city. BACKUP PLAN: Abstract Rude @ Brick by Brick.
