San Diego Shows - Friday, Feb. 11

Fol Chen, Netherfriends, Film School and more

By Peter Holslin
folchen Fol Chen
PLAN A: Fol Chen, Dudes, Hands @ Soda Bar. Fol Chen may have an apocalyptic streak—their cryptic band bio on their label’s website could’ve come straight from a Philip K. Dick novel—but the L.A. outfit welcomes all chaos with open arms. Case in point: The infectious single “In Ruins,” a love song set in a ruined cityscape, with a twirling refrain that could’ve easily been lifted from a Saturday-morning cartoon. PLAN B: Netherfriends, Wet Years, Werebear, Mystery Cave @ Tin Can Ale House. Netherfriends clearly take cues from Animal Collective and Man Man, but the Chicago pop project (which revolves around mastermind Shawn Rosenblatt) could just as likely have taken all of its inspiration from an imaginative 5-year-old. Beatific songs like “Lead You Through the Misty Fog of Milwaukee Ave” burst with all the trippy color of a finger painting. BACKUP PLAN: Film School, The Dabbers, The Howls, Tapedeck Mountain @ The Casbah.
