THURSDAY:

For those of you who like your punk fast and dirty like grandma used to make, Jay Reatard is playing at the Casbah tonight. Helping blow the roof off the place will be fellow punkers Cheap Time, as well as San Diego’s very own The Sess, who are part of Single Screen Records’ batting-a-thousand roster of awesome local bands.

Those cut from a more sensitive cloth can go check out Jason Reeves at Soma tonight, who will happily help you relive the painful memory of every girl who, for one reason or another, just didn’t feel like dating you anymore. Jon McLauglin will be opening.

FRIDAY:

The biggest thing to happen to San Diego since Will Ferrell compared the city to a whale’s naughty bits, Grand Ole Party will be playing at the Che to an all-ages crowd. For those of you too slow on the draw to catch either of their sold out performances at the Casbah two weeks ago, here’s your shot at redemption. Also, if you run into lovely singer/drummer Kristin Gundred while you’re there, assume she works for the Che and ask her if she can sell you a soda. I speak from personal experience when I say that she really likes that.

SATURDAY:

We’ve told you before and we’ll tell you again: North By North Park will be holding the titular neighborhood hostage with over 100 local musical acts vying for your attention and beer money. Notable acts include The Silent Comedy, The Glossines, Bunky, Wild Weekend, The Sess, and none other than The Vision Of A Dying World, who may just be San Diego’s best-kept secret, so be sure to catch them. We’ll see you there.
