    Pyles' July Show Supply
    The Roots head into the Observatory North Park in July -- and the show's just one of Tim Pyles' top picks for the month.

    I can only do so much for you, the rest is up to you. Think of this as a cheat sheet for the month, but remember that I book some of the nights at the Casbah, so some of the shows mentioned below I booked and would appreciate your support! I still don't know what Comic-Con has in store this year, but that is this month too! It's all about time management...now get out and see a show! 

    July 1: Cat Power at the Observatory North Park. Chan Marshall is singer, songwriter, actor and occasional model.

    July 2: The New Addiction, the Montell Jordans, Misc. Ailments and Plane Without A Pilot at the Casbah. A great night of local pop-punk!

    July 3: Booty Bassment at the Casbah. It's a dance party!

    July 4: Fireworks!

    July 5: Melvins at the Casbah. Heaviest of the heavy and ready to melt your mind!

    July 6: Herb Albert and Lani Hall at Embarcadero Marina Park. I wonder if he will have the Tijuana Brass with him.

    July 7: The Paranoyds and the Regrettes at House of Blues Voodoo Stage. A night of girl bands with boy drummers!

    July 8: "The Life of Brian" at Casbah. A night celebrating Brian Karscig of Convoy, Louis VIX and the Nervous Wreckords.

    July 13: The Velveteins at Soda Bar. Indie-rock from Canada, eh?

    July 14: Schizophonics, the Creepy Creeps and Hollywood Sinners at Casbah. Two of the best live bands San Diego has to offer on the same bill.

    July 20: Retro Futura Tour with Paul Young, Modern English, Howard Jones, the English Beat and Men Without Hats at Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre. Relive the '80s!

    July 21: Dead Kennedys, Authentic Sellout, Sculpins and Systematic Abuse at Brick By Brick. Punk, punk, punk, but where's the Jello?

    July 28: Violent Femmes at Del Mar Fairgrounds. Legendary folk-punkers!

    July 29: Kitten, Love Glow, and Sights and Sages at Casbah. This is gonna be a good one, come support Kitten from LA and a couple local bands.

    July 30: Cayetana at Casbah. Something good from Philly that rocks -- and it's not a cheesesteak.
