San Diego Shows–Tuesday, Aug. 24
PLAN A: Innerds, Upsilon Acrux, Black Songs, Hing @ The Casbah. Math-rock never sounded so psychotic. Innerds, a collaboration between Bobby Bray of The Locust and Brandon Relf of Sleeping People, deliver spastic riffs that turn on a dime. Upsilon Acrux thrashes eardrums and rattles bones with a two-drummer, two-guitar assault. PLAN B: Owl Eyes, The Big Decisions, Button Willow Locomotive @ Soda Bar. With their banjo player’s bluegrass-style finger-picking and their singer’s strained country twang, The Big Decisions sound like they’ve rolled into town straight from the dust bowls of Oklahoma. BACKUP PLAN: The Flowerthief, Blood Beach, The New Assembly, Kelsey Rae Little @ Tin Can Ale House.
