Underground Conspiracies

Mission Creek Music Festival is a must-hear

Chamber Strings

Kevin Junior, the Chamber Strings' main-man, is Midwestern born 'n' bred. However, seeing his Brit-fop appearance, you'd swear he was in the Stones in 1966, Faces circa 1973, or the Heartbreakers in '77. Junior lived in England briefly, accompanying ex-Swell Maps Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks. Drawing inspiration from the aforementioned, the Chamber Strings marshal aspects of lean, unkempt rock, classic melodious hooks, and wry melancholia, judiciously balancing debauched scruffiness with stylish finesse. (Friday, May 18, Café du Nord, 8 p.m.)

¡SoCiety!

As a genre, the term "white boy Afrobeat" sounds so wrong. And yet the grooves pouring out of San Diego's white boy Afrobeat band ÁSoCiety! sound so right. With a touring membership hovering somewhere around a dozen people — including a pair of preternaturally talented twin brothers and their tatted-out backup dancers — the ÁSoCiety! live show is completely unpredictable and in a class all its own. (Saturday, May 19, Café du Nord, 8 p.m.)
