Danko Jones and Nashville Pussy

Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, 7 p.m.

Where: Observatory North Park, 2891 University Avenue, San Diego | get directions

Cost: $5

Age limit: All ages

Canadian rock trio Danko Jones will make their first appearance at Observatory North Park (having previously favored the Casbah and Brick By Brick) on February 10, where they’ll presumably preview their upcoming ninth studio album, which is still untitled but nonetheless already has a lead single, “We’re Crazy.” Looking up that track on YouTube, it appears they’ve been playing the song since April, when they toured the UK with Skindred. Like many of their tunes, it’s nearly a novelty record (think the Muppets spoofing Red Hot Chili Peppers), although the ever-present humor may be a little less manic and (very slightly) more mature than on late ‘90s singles like “Bounce” (which earned their sophomore EP a 2000 Juno Award nomination as Best Alternative Album in Canada). They’ve never really been a hot commodity on the U.S. tour market, although plenty of online kudos have been proffered after high profile opening slots for the Supersuckers and San Diego’s own Flogging Molly. Singles such as “Forget My Name” and “Lovercall” (both from their 2005 album We Sweat Blood) still get frequent radio spins, as do Great White North hits like “First Date” and “Just a Beautiful Day.”



This tour is a double headline bill pairing them with cowpunk rockers Nashville Pussy, touring in support of last year’s Pleased to Eat You album. The Observatory show is only four dates into a lengthy Nashville Pussy tour that runs through May, as announced by singer-guitarist Blaine Cartwright in a YouTube video recorded at the Ramones Museum in Berlin, Germany. It’s an all ages gig, with tickets only five bucks.
