My Life in Advertising: A Pulpcore Art Event
San Diego artist David Russell Talbott (Juxtapoz, Sleek Magazine, CityBeat) pays homage to pulp with his show "My Life In Advertising" at the Bluefoot Bar & Lounge (3404 30th Street). Talbott's art references '50s pulp magazine covers, with an emphasis on urban noir.

July 19-23, 2006 (Wed-Sat 8 pm, Sun 2 and 8 pm)

Goblin Cock
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.

Biz Markie
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.

Flaming Lips
A cult favorite since forming in '83, The Lips will be playing a free (with race admission) show after the races on the 21st as part of the Del Mar Racetrack’s "Four O'Clock Fridays" Concert Series. Racing begins at 4pm, the concert starts at approximately 7:30pm.
