So I have some new shows for all you little music junkies out there. so lets get down to business.
Playing 4/16:JJ, The Gomorran Social Aid & Pleasure Club, Karina Denike at Bottom of the Hill - A nice selection of indie rockers, from a crooning and beautifully voiced vixen, A band resembling something between the Squirrel Nut Zipper and the Decemberists, to a guy that has a pretty good experimental take on electronic indie rock.
Wolves In the Throne Room, Earth,
Lori Goldston at Slim's -to quote a blonde co-worker of mine OMG. This should be a most excellent show. Earth is legendary drone music, extending notes for such long periods of time, critics might think the band has fallen asleep. Wolves in the Throne Room are an odd little black metal meets doom metal outfit. This show is going to be awesome in my opinion, I will be checking it out for sure.
Orbital at the Warfield - So if you like techno and or electronica and you don't know Orbital then you must not be paying much attention, this should be a pretty good show for all you little ravers and techno geeks.
Crime In Stereo, Robbers, Sabertooth Zombie, Troubled Coast at thee Parkside - So this is an odd blend, the first two bands are more indie rock, with a slightly hard edge. . . slightly. But the second pairing is more of a Hardcore somewhat punk outfit. . . somewhat. sounds like a pretty interesting show all around.
The Bananas, Underground Railroad To
Candy Land, Lenguas Largas, Pins Of Light at the Knockout - A pretty straightforward punk show a great little venue/bar. Should be a cheap and fun show to check out.
Method Man at Shattuck Down Low,
Berkeley - So I am not a big rap buff to be honest. I have a Deltron the Funky Homo sapien album from a friend and that's about it. But I do know Method Man from his dubious acting career, such classics as How High to indie flicks like Garden State, so I figure why not mention he'll be playing a show in Berkeley, sounds cool right.
Judgement Day, Battlehooch, 7 Orange
ABC at the Bottom Of the Hill - Possible one of the most pretentious indie shows I have seen in a while. Judgment day claims they are string metal, i.e. a drum upright bass and a violin playing black metal. As for the rest of the bands they appear to also be pretty strange but I feel you should visit their myspace pages to get a more accurate representation.
So that is the weekend at a glance. Feel free to ask the front desk about more ideas on what to do while you're here. As a final closer Rest in Peace Peter Steele, the big rock and roll mead hall in the sky will welcome you and all your surly goodness.
