Growing, Eric Copeland (black dice), Birds & Batteries at the New Parish, Oakland 18+ $10/$12 9pm. Trippy psychedelic experimental grooves. A good show if you like bands like coil and psychic TV though they have a sound of thier own.
Chad Price, Michael Dean Damron, Micah Schabnel, Piss Pissedoffherson at Thee Parkside 21+ $5 8pm/8:30pm. If you like whiney emo music then here's a show for you, a bunch of guys with guitars crooning about how their women left their sorry asses.
Japanther, The Reaction, Dirty Marquee, Street Eaters at the Hemlock 21+ $7 9pm. A little pop punk a little garage rock, even a little experimentation. A cool bar and an interesting show for sure.
Aesop, Venture Capitalists, The New Humans at Bottom of the Hill 18+ $10 8:30/9pm. So we have an indie rock band opening for some pretty good hip hop bands. If I had the money I would go to this show tonight for sure.
Fix My Head, This Runs On Blood, Useless Children, Gain To Lose at Sub-Mission (Balazo), S.F. $6 9pm (alcoholocaust) Punky goodness, do up some liberty spikes and hit the pit.
Hightower, Hot Lunch, Sons of Glory at the Eagle Tavern, S.F. 21+ 9pm. Metal, punk, and psychedelic rock. A little bit for the little whacked out music lover in all of us.
Murs, Sick Jacken at the Fillmore a/a $20 7/8pm. Not sure if you would call this more hip hop, trip hop, or what but should be a nice show, for those into said kinds of music.
Photo Atlas, The Moog (Budapest, Hungary), Smile Radio at thee Parkside a/a $8 9pm. Somewhere between punk and pop punk, with a little electronic punk, we have a new contender, the supposed postpunk, honestly I think it's still just furthering the pop punk genre, though I like these bands a lot better than Blink 182 and all their little clones.
21+ $7 9:30pm. Ambient psych rock, noise, and a guy in a band called Harry Pussy doing a solo show, how can that not be entertaining I ask you.
9:30pm. Crushing doom, ambient metal, a dash of avante guard ambient, and a screamo band. I'd say worth the price of admission for sure.
Parkside, S.F. a/a $12 8pm. Punk rock has some deep roots in this area, and this is a show spanning many different forms of those roots.
