Dark Tranquillity @ Slim’s
w/ Swallow The Sun, Enforcer, Starkill

Door 7 / Show 8 Way back in 1993, Dark Tranquillity was a little known band from the town of Gothenburg, Sweden. Nobody knew what melodic death metal was at that time, nor did they really understand what a huge impact this band would have on the world of metal come 1995’s “The Gallery”. Decades after […]

Yoni and Geti @ GAMH
w/ Go Dark

Door 8 / Show 9 When we last left David Cohn (Serengeti) and Yoni Wolf, it was 2011—the year of the Rabbit, the year of Occupy Wall Street, and their first collaborative album, Serengeti’s Family & Friends. Somewhere amidst Charlie Sheen’s meltdown and Oprah’s last episode, the duo dropped one of the most simultaneously bleak and […]

Kula Shaker @ GAMH

Door 8 / Show 9 Timing, they say, is everything. However, when most bands reform there’s always a sense, deep down, that it’s a marriage of convenience. Not for Kula Shaker. “I think what many people like about the band is that we never treated it as a career,” says Crispian Mills, contemplating the group’s […]

Eliot Sumner @ Slim’s
w/ Cheerleader

Door 7 / Show 8 Following her first studio album, Eliot took a four-year hiatus to re-evaluate her sound. “I went into hibernation for a while, to search for my soul,” she jokes. Thankfully she located it – quite possibly in the Lake District. “I moved there for five months in total isolation, with just […]

Deerhoof @ GAMH w/ Skating Polly, Otzi

Door 7 / Show 8 After all the accolades from press and peers, what’s a legendary band to do? Forget the recording studio, rent out an abandoned office space in the middle of the New Mexico desert, set up, plug in and play REALLY LOUD. Starting with hardly a notion of the outcome, by seven […]

Royal Headache @ GAMH
w/ Toys That Kill, Tony Molina

Door 7 / Show 8 Sydney’s Royal Headache burst into view back in 2011 upon the release of their self-titled album, an adrenaline shot of melodic energy and heart-on-sleeve romanticism that immediately lit up listeners home and away. They dug deep, and took their blinding live show on the road throughout North America and Australia, […]

The Bay Beat vol. 2: Super Bowl 50, J. Lately, J Stalin & Philthy Rich, HipHopForChange

Back with Volume 2 of #TheBayBeat! Before I get started, I HAVE to take a moment to honor, remember and extol The Jacka. The Oakland Native was tragically gunned down one year ago, yesterday, February 2nd. Mob Figaz, the solo work, collaborative projects with Andre Nickatina, Freeway, Berner, Dubble-OO, Lil Keke, Messy Marv and so […]

The Phenomenauts @ Slim’s
w/ Dan P. & The Bricks, Atom Age

Door 8pm / Show 9pm “Science Friday” with The Phenomenauts: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Picture Disc Release Party Escape Velocity is the speed needed to break free from the gravitational attraction of a massive body, such as the Earth. THE PHENOMENAUTS felt it was a fitting title for an album that encourages people to break free […]

Lissie @ Slim’s
w/ Skrizzly Adams

 Door 7pm / Show 8pm ‘My Wild West begins’ with an overture, by definition an “introduction to something more substantial.” In this case it is Lissie’s third studio album and her most personal one to date, a fitting tribute to Lissie’s life in California, from her arrival as a fresh-faced singer-songwriter till now, leaving for […]

K’s Choice @ Slim’s w/ A Fragile Tomorrow

Parachute @ GAMH w/ Jon McLaughlin, Boh Doran

SHOW 7:30pm DOOR 6:30pm Back when they were in high school, Parachute’s Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher “Kit” French (saxophone, keyboards) spent nearly every afternoon in Anderson’s basement, dreaming up songs showing a deep affinity for classic pop, heart-felt rock, and tuneful blue-eyed soul. Now, after a decade of touring internationally […]

The Soft Moon @ Slim’s
w/ Sextile, Male Gaze, DJ Omar Perez

Door 7pm / Show 8pm The Soft Moon Luis Vasquez never intended for The Soft Moon to reach the public’s ears; for him, music has always been about self-actualization rather than self-aggrandizement. Nevertheless, the bleak, hushed sounds he created years ago in his small Oakland apartment bubbled to the surface and 2010 saw his debut LP, The Soft […]

G. Love & Special Sauce @ GAMH
w/ Ripe

SHOW 8pm DOOR 7pm “When you get the spark, you got to ride that energy,” says G. Love, and that spark certainly ignites on his 10th studio full-length Love Saves The Day. He calls the new release “the fullest realization of the hip-hop blues” that he first pioneered with Special Sauce in the early ‘90s. […]
