    Tired of not finding satisfactory dance music? Well, Paul Oakenfold is the panacea for all of your dancing doldrums. The world-famous British DJ/remixer/producer will bring his violently popular house music to the On Broadway Event Center in the Gaslamp District for Super Bowl partiers and other dance-crazed fiends. Tickets will start at $25 and VIP packages are $60. For more information call (619) 969-7285.

    Get ready to party like it’s 1999. That’s right, 5th Quarter at the Gaslamp is going to be packed with four stages from the local radio stations to meet everyone’s tastes. Enjoy the best in rock/alternative at the 91X and RCA Fun Zone, or check out the Pepsi Rock Pavilion with KGB Rock and Rock 105.3 FM. If you’re loyal to country, BOB 99.3 FM has its own stage, and for those who want to shake their money-makers, they can at the On Broadway Dance Zone hosted by Z90 and Channel 933 FM. Great bands like Rochelle, Rochelle and Ilya will be there, so you definitely can’t miss it. The event is free.

    If you’re a sucker for Irish love songs or you just want to hear perhaps one of the most talented in all corners of the world, go see The Chieftains in concert at the California Center for the Arts in Escondido. The group of six men started in 1963, and has since traveled the world and performed with more artists than Michael Jackson, including Loreena McKennit, Sinead O’Connor, Mick Jagger, the Rolling Stones and many more. After 40 albums and five Grammy awards, these guys can still deliver. Tickets for their show start at $34. For information call (800) 988-4253.

    Experimental and fun, the Mother Hips will play at Belly Up Tavern with Jack Pot and 5 Foot Tuesday. The Mother Hips has been labeled everything from Americana to alternative country, but has proven that it doesn’t fit into any normal stereotypical labels. Instead, with a little more pop and a lot more innovation, Mother Hips play to evoke emotion, something that they will definitely do. The show starts at 9:15 p.m. Tickets are $12. For more information call (858) 481-8140.

    With their blues and folk music during the 1950s and ’60s, Loudon Wainwright III, John Hammond, Tom Paxton and Mike Seeger took part in the urban folk music boom and fought against social injustice. Now they bring back pieces of the past with their Washington Square Memoirs concert in Price Center Theater. With humor and emotion, these men will bask in the nostalgia of days gone by for all fans of great music, talented singers and songwriters. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $25.

    Saturday 01/25/03

    For those who think life is a joke, Leftover Salmon is the band for you. The silly bluegrass jam band consists of five men who take life with a grain of salt, but who definitely know how to play some serious music. Playing at Belly Up Tavern at 9:15 p.m., these guys will leave you smiling and stomping your feet involuntarily. Tickets are a mere $15. For more information call (858) 481-9022.

    Once the darlings of the grunge world, The Melvins (precursors to other grunge bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden) are back on the indie scene, but that doesn’t daunt them. They will still perform their signature hits and then some at The Casbah at 8:30 p.m. Also playing is Altamont, so you can’t miss this concert. Tickets are $12. For information call (619) 232-4355.

    Sunday 01/26/03

    Who can forget that Mitsubishi Eclipse commercial with the super-cool party people dancing in the car to “”Days Go By”” by Dirty Vegas? Well, now you can be just as cool, because Dirty Vegas will be playing at Club Montage at 9 p.m. And for $20, you can see these three young British dudes play their danceable house songs. Hey, you might be surprised and realize they’re not as annoying as you thought they were. For more information call (619) 284-9590.

    Tuesday 01/28/03

    Put on your best dancin’ boots, grab your beer and head on over to the Belly Up Tavern, where you can see Cowboy Mouth. In a rare blend of alternative country and rockabilly music, lead singer Fred LeBlanc and the rest of his band will have the crowd convulsing to their vibrant and enthusiastic tunes. For a live performance that won’t be found anywhere else, you have to go! And don’t worry, they’ve got country roots, but that’s as far as it goes. For information call (858) 481-9022.

    Wednesday 01/29/03

    He may be known as Bob Dylan’s son, but Jakob Dylan has talent that has to be recognized as his alone. Dylan and his band, The Wallflowers will play at 4th and B, where they will perform their latest and greatest. Warren Zane will also play. Tickets are $20 pre-sale and $22 at the door, but don’t wait until the day of the concert or you might get left in the cold. Doors will open at 7 p.m. For information call (619) 231-4343.

    What do you get when you mix avant-garde opera, punk attitude, occasional shrieks and bundles of charisma? The cult legend who embodies all of these qualities Is East Berlin-native Nina Hagen. With an extensive history in the 1970s punk scene, as well as in film projects throughout the years, Hagen has collected fans in every city she’s visited, and guarantees to do the same when she performs at Canes Bar and Grill at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $15 and for more information call (858) 488-1780.
