San Diego Shows–Tuesday, Sept. 21
PLAN A: Signal Path, Blockhead, Nocando, Open Mike Eagle @ The Casbah. Check out our feature on Page 24 to find our more about Tony Simon, aka Blockhead, a hip-hop producer from NYC who’s collaborated with Aesop Rock and makes fine instrumental albums of his own. PLAN B: Phoenix, Neon Indian @ SDSU Open Air Theatre. Between the cheery pop of Paris’ Phoenix and the goofy synth-pop of Brooklyn’s Neon Indian, you’ve got some über-catchy vibes.
Seriously, though, this is where I’ll be: D/Wolves, Paper Forest, Young Mammals, Bruisecaster @ Tin Can Ale House. My new band, Bruisecaster, will put on a weird dance party. The rest of the lineup is dandy, as well.
