San Diego Shows–Saturday, Sept. 18

September 18, 2010 - 12:23 pm

PLAN A: The Walkmen, Japandroids, Dan Mangan @ Belly Up. Judging by what I’ve read so far, The Walkmen’s latest album (which came out this week; see our review on Page 28) is a slightly mellower but no less awesome take on their rock balladry. Canadian rockers Japandroids fill out a big bill that’s probably on its way to selling out as I write. PLAN B: Southern Culture on the Skids @ The Casbah. You might assume from their vaguely cartoonish press photos that this North Carolina country-rock trio was a joke concocted by Christopher Guest for A Mighty Wind. But rollicking tracks like “Pig Pickin” and “Soul City” prove they’re not fucking around. Not completely, at least. (Starts at 6:30 p.m.) BACKUP PLAN: Felix Cartal @ Voyeur.

Hanson @ House of Blues.

Billy Midnight, Travel By Sea, The Shade @ Tin Can Ale House.
