San Diego Shows–Friday, Sept. 3

September 3, 2010 - 9:27 am

PLAN A: Lower Dens, Blessure Grave, Black Mamba, DJs Blk Pnts, Neil Young At Heart @ Tin Can Ale House. One of Baltimore’s best new bands, Lower Dens play dreamy, mid-tempo guitar grooves augmented by Jana Hunter’s husky voice. While local duo Blessure Grave mine a litany of sorrows in their hypnotic goth rock, Black Mamba will get you in the mood for a make-out sesh. PLAN B: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Fever Sleeves @ The Casbah. Earlier this year, Ted Leo came out with The Brutalist Bricks, a pared-down slab of catchy indie rock that’s sounding like one of his best records yet. (Youngsters should see Ted Leo at The Che Cafe on Thursday, Sept. 2.) PLAN C: Nipsey Hussle, Big Rich, Turf Talk, I-Rocc, Smigg Dirtee, Adonis the Hottest @ Brick by Brick. Nipsey Hussle, an avowed Crip from L.A. with charitable instincts (he made a cameo in a Haiti-focused version of “We Are the World” this year), headlines a fine rap bill. BACKUP PLAN: The Dickies, D.I. @ 4th & B.


Septeto Nacional @ Anthology. A leading light in Son, a Cuban music style that combines Spanish guitar with African rhythms, Havana’s Septeto Nacional have been around in various forms for more than 80 years. Most of the current lineup has been playing together only since the ’90s and ’00s, but they’ve got the spellbinding grooves and winsome melodies of standards like “Échale salsita” down pat. (They’re also playing on Saturday, Sept. 4.)

Unbroken, Foundation, The Mistake, XUnrestrainedX, Northern Towns, All Leather @ Che Cafe. Legendary local hardcore band Unbroken comes back from the dead to stomp you in the face. (Sold out.)
