Innovative musician Rob Crow -- key member of revered San Diego bands Pinback, Thingy, Heavy Vegetable and Optiganally Yours -- is back with yet another bizarrely named musical project. Goblin Cock pairs sludgy, Sabbath-inspired power chords with references to obscure sci-fi and Snufalufagus. It's serious metal with tongue-in-cheek attitude. The band will open for Blue Cheer at The Casbah (2501 Kettner) 8:30p Fri, July 21 with tickets only $15.
For those arriving Tuesday, the Clown Prince of Rap, whose late '80s song "Just a Friend" became a Top 10 pop hit, resurfaces with a free show at Martini Ranch (528 F. Street). DJs Haul, Rasta Root and Charlie Rock (Rock Steady Crew) also spin.
