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, Niteppl

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.

Nothing But Thieves @ GAMH w/ Missio, Airways

Door 7 / Show 8 The Japanese art of kintsugi is to take something broken and make it more beautiful than before; shards of ceramic put back together with gold-flecked glue, the cracks a proud part of the object. It’s a concept that’s central to Broken Machine, the second album from Southend-formed, South-east-based five-piece Nothing […]

Los Pericos @ Slim’s Presented by Dr. Rock and Jaffe Events – POSTPONED TO 3/22

Door 7 / Show 8 Argentine Latin Reggae/Ska icons Los Pericos play funky, deep-grooved, compellingly danceable reggae. They’re exuberant and rollicking performers, with ’60s Jamaican rhythm, ska and other Caribbean sounds influencing Pericos co-founder Juanchi Baleiron. The band’s grooves are genuine enough to have gotten members invited to Jamaica Sunsplash Festival two years straight. One […]

Kevin Morby @ GAMH w/ Shannon Lay – SOLD OUT!

Door 7:30 / Show 8:30 City Music is an airplane descending over frozen lakes into Chicago. City Music is riding the Q Train out to Coney Island to smell the ocean and a morning in Philadelphia where greats cranes reconfigure the buildings like an endless puzzle. City Music is a quiet afternoon moment on a bench in Baltimore, a highway […]

Bad Suns @ GAMH
w/ Hunny, QTY – SOLD OUT!

Door 7 / Show 8 With the release of Disappear Here, Bad Suns’ impressively wise and honest sophomore album, it is hard to believe the four-piece began as a chance friendship between Christo Bowman (vocals) and Gavin Bennett (bass) in a 7th grade Los Angeles County classroom. The pair picked up Miles Morris (drums) and […]

An Evening With Cigarettes After Sex @ GAMH – SOLD OUT!

Door 7 / Show 8 Cigarettes After Sex front man Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work released via Partisan Records on June 9th, 2017. After the phenomenal online break-out success of 2015’s reverberant beauty ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ from the early Cigarettes EP (‘I.’) from 2012, […]

Shabazz Palaces @ GAMH
w/ Porter Ray, FELA KUTCHII

Door 8 / Show 9 …speaking of air and darkness, Born on a Gangster Star came into the world in a big damn hurry, like nightfall on an island. You can see it happening, but then again it’s so gradual that the next thing you know—it’s dark. Imbued with the energy and ideas from all the creative […]

SF Weekly Live Review: Dreamcar Turned On The Ignition At Great American Music Hall – The AFI-No Doubt Supergroup Played Its Third Show Ever For A Ravenous Crowd On Sunday, April 9

How do you write about bands that don’t exist? To be fair, Dreamcar — the recently announced joint venture of AFI lead singer Davey Havok and No Doubt members Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont, and Adrian Young — does exist, but barely. Their first single, the upbeat rocker “Kill for Candy,” premiered on Los Angeles radio […]

Pond @ GAMH w/ Kirin J Callinan

Door 7 / Show 8 On the global political stage, storm clouds are gathering. In the face of Trump, Brexit, Isis etc, what can a poor boy do…but sing in a rock ‘n’ roll band? Amid these trouser-soiling conditions, antipodean psychedelic rockers POND aren’t so dumb as to try and offer cloud-busting solutions, or even […]

Julien Baker @ GAMH – SOLD OUT!

Sometimes, things just seem to happen for a reason. The pieces fall into place in unexpected ways, and life takes a turn no one could have predicted.
