    OK, so the Rolling Stones aren’t coming to town, but you can now catch the next-best thing by going to see Brian Jonestown Massacre at The Casbah. This trio of indie rockers from San Francisco idolize the Rolling Stones, and it shows. Get ready to rock out to their psychedelic tunes with that touch of blues and country. They go on stage at 8:30 p.m., and tickets are a mere $8. For more information about this delightful group call (619) 232-4355.

    Prepare yourself for an evening of great heavy metal and rock performances when Cattle Decapitation plays at SOMA. This band caused quite a controversy the last time they played after one of the band members wore a mask of beef jerky strips onstage. Doesn’t sound so bad, does it? Sure, they didn’t bite off bats heads or wear socks over their gonads, but it definitely was not a good idea, conidering they were playing at the vegan Che Cafe. Yikes! This time they’re at a safer venue for these antics, and they will also be playing with Pushed, T-Bag, Stretcher, Disgorged and Damnation. Tickets are $7. For more information call (619) 226-7662.

    An evening of great performances of classical pieces awaits you at the Neurosciences Institute Auditorium in La Jolla for the Mainly Mozart Spotlight Series, featuring the Music of Mozart, Prokifiev, Chopin and Beethoven. This concert will include “”Fantasie in C minor”” and “”K. 475″” by Mozart; “”Sonata No. 6 in A”” and “”Opus 82″” by Prokifiev; Chopin’s “”Two Nocturnes in E minor,”” “”Opus 72 in C minor”” and “”Opus 48/1;”” and Beethoven’s “”Sonata in C”” and “”Opus 53″” (“”Waldstein””). Tickets are $35. For information call (619) 239-0100.

    It’s hard to find good sculptures nowadays, especially with subjects you can actually recognize, but fear no more. The Timken Museum in Balboa Park is bringing an exhibit from the de Medici court featuring the works of famous 16th century Italian artist Jean Boulogne (who was commonly known as Giovanni Bologna, which later became Giambologna for short). The exhibit, titled “”Giambologna: Sculpture by the Master and his Followers,”” will include beautifully crafted bronzes of Greek dieties, portrait busts and animals. And what’s better? The admission is free! So you have no excuse to not visit lovely Balboa Park and check out this museum. For information on the exhibit or the museum call (619) 239-5548. The exhibit runs through March 30.

    Psychedelic rock of the 1960s has never quite left us, and this can be seen if you go see Nebula in concert at The Casbah. This L.A. trio recently released their latest album, “”Charged,”” which includes their addictive hard melodies drowned in resonating bass, rhythm guitars and passionate drumming. This is a show that cannot be missed. See them at 8:30 p.m. for $10. For information call (619) 232-4355.

    They came out of the Bay Area Thrash Metal scene in the 1980s, and they are still going strong. Known as a relatively young metal band, Death Angel has been incredibly influential with their innovative style and youthful energy. And what else? They rock! They may have been broken up for more than a decade, but they are back together now and touring. You can be one of the lucky ones to see them in concert when they play with VIII Fraud, Blindheim and Tall at Brick by Brick. The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $15.

    What’s a lithograph? No, it’s not what you plug into your speakers. If you want to find out what a lithograph is and see some contemporary prints, head on over to The San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park, where their new exhibit, “”The Magician and the Mechanic: Tamarind Lithography Workshop, the Early Years,”” will feature the works of such artists as Josef Albers, Louise Nevelson, Sam Francis and many more. June Wayne founded Tamarind in 1960 to preserve the art of lithography from dying out. Tamarind trains artists and gives them the opportunity to experiment, and now you can see what has come out of it. The exhibit will run until May 4. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for students and military, and $3 for children ages 6 to17. For information call (619) 232-7931.

    The Fritz Theatre had vanished for a while, but now it’s back and it’s setting up shop at the 6th @ Penn Theatre in Hillcrest. This time, it will be resurrecting one of its longstanding favorites: “”Sexual Perversity in Chicago.”” This production of “”Perversity,”” however, has a twist: The gender roles are reversed. So see this new rendition of a popular play. The show runs through March 27 and plays Monday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m. For tickets and information call (619) 688-9210.

    Tuesday 3/11/03

    It’s not easy to find a good guitarist, especially with all this pop music junk that is shoveled on us daily, but Keller Williams has proven himself to be a first-rate guitarist time and time again. This long-haired hippie will be playing his unique brand of skillful rock songs at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. The show starts at 9 p.m. and tickets are $15. Seating isn’t guaranteed, so get there early!
