    Hiatus picks the the Week’s Best Bets

    Pre

    Tower Bar / April 19 / 8 P.M.

    Chipmunk punk from the UK, coming to SD! Pre takes Deerhoof’s ADD riffs and Japanese chick wails, reshaping them into careless noise morsels. Though their delivery is blatantly too-cool, seen on rapid-fire anthem “And Prolapse,” the quintet speeds through tracks with scenester conviction. “Nope Fun” mirrors local art-punks Dmonstrations’ angular jams, now with cooing and odd moans from Akiko Matsuura’s mouth. Cute, yet disturbing. (CK)

    "Young @ Heart"

    Landmark Hillcrest & La Jolla / Opens Friday

    Sonic Youth tunes by senior citizens don’t seem to mesh, but hell if a choir of octo- and septuagenarians can’t convince you otherwise, belting out everything from old-school punk to modern-day rock. The title “Young@Heart” is intended to imply that age doesn’t equal vigor, and while it initially looks trite and “cute,” Stephen Walker’s emotional documentary chronicles the trials of the members as they rehearse, undergo surgeries and even die. Nonetheless, while it does confront the black abyss, it’s never morbid, but instead, touching and funny, offering a brand new look to “I Wanna Be Sedated.” (CM)
