Here's To The Short Work Week!

Here’s to a short work week and kicking off our weekend Thursday night.  On the live music tip, 91X presents Everlast Acoustic Duo at the Belly Up.  Elsewhere, Barbarian headlines at Soda Bar and Cult Vegas, Desolators and Gone Baby Gone play at the Tin Can.   For your dancing fix, Fluxx EDM features Matt Nash.  Plus, Daddy’s Groove hits Voyeur and you can RSVP for the no cover before 10:30pm list here. 

Friday, Russell Brand hits the Balboa Theatre for a sold-out show as part of The Messiah Complex Tour.  My other live concert tip is Dave Matthews Band at Sleep Train Amphitheatre.  And on the other side of the musical spectrum, punk band Weirdos headline at the Casbah.  There’s fun to be had with CobraHeart at Quality Social featuring DJs Mike Delgado, Iggy Mont, Camron and B.I.D.I.  Plus, Mossberg Pump takes over Voyeur and you can get on the no cover before 10:30 p.m. list via this link. 

Summer rolls on with Adult Swim Saturday at Dive Dayclub with DJ Spryte at Harrah’s Rincon Casino.  On Saturday, it will be all laughs with The Comedy Explosion, as Will Ferrell Hosts A Night of Comedy & Big Game Cats at the Civic Theatre.  If you don’t have tickets for that because word is it’s sold out, might I suggest seeing The Tree Ring, Sara Watkins (Nickle Creek) and Tiny Telephones at the Irenic.   Later that night, join me at The Kava Lounge for Club Ascension.  DJs Severin and Michael will round out the lineup and we’ll be spinning the best in dark underground dance music.  Plus, it’s your chance to win tickets to see Psychedelic Furs at The Belly Up.  Get more Ascension info here.  You can also get your dance on at El Dorado as Adam Salter presents Boys & Girls with Manik and at Winstons it’s a fundraiser for the Monarch Metamorphisis camp at this year’s YOUtopia, San Diego Burning Man Community’s official Burning Man regional event. 

Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
