Music, Hear This Drive Like Jehu @ The Independent

Drive Like Jehu @ The Independent

In the 1990s, California had a knack for birthing post-hardcore bands that made it big with underground cult audiences, but ended prematurely after unhappy forays into major label-dom. San Francisco had Jawbreaker and San Diego had Drive Like Jehu –…

Music, Hear This Reel Big Fish @ The Fillmore

Reel Big Fish @ The Fillmore

There are fun live shows, and then there are bands whose performances are so consistently entertaining that they survive even the death of their own scene. Sure, ska-punk will always exist in some capacity, but after the huge explosion of…

Here's Your Chance to See Pussy Riot Ham It Up at The Warfield on Wednesday Night

Most bands don't get assaulted by civilians, publicly beaten and maced by police, or imprisoned for protesting against Russian President Vladamir Putin. But then again, most bands aren't Pussy Riot. On Wednesday night, the Russian feminist punk-rock group will head to The…

Last Week: Slash's Return, Rollins' Cleaver and Kanye's Audition

It's time to take cover San Francisco because we're pretty sure hell just froze over. Almost everything this week has been incredibly unlikely — from the length of Henry Rollins' kill list, through Guns N' Roses getting the old…

The 8 Coolest NYE Parties Happening in S.F.

Depending on your perspective, New Year’s Eve is either the greatest party night of the whole year or an overpriced struggle to force fun on the world. Well, fear not, San Francisco, for this year, as we bid farewell…

Music, Hear This Morrissey at The Masonic

Morrissey at The Masonic

Good thing the Masonic doesn't have a kitchen, because we all know how much our favorite vegan loves to hate on venues that serve meat. (In fact, Morrissey is so serious about not performing where burgers and dogs are sold…

This Week: Gaga's Boy's Club, Miley's Baby Suit & Cranston's Bling

Usually, we give you an intelligent introduction to our end-of-week quotes blog. But this week... well... JESUS... Miley Cyrus dressed up like a baby and sang about grown-up relationship problems while doing so, and we're so freaked out, it's…

Music, Hear This The Bronx and Nouveau Mariachi/Mariachi El Bronx @ The Independent

The Bronx and Nouveau Mariachi/Mariachi El Bronx @ The Independent

The first thing you should know about hardcore punk band The Bronx is that it also moonlights under the name Mariachi El Bronx. Now that we've cleared that up, the second thing you should know is that both have shows…

This Week: Drake Wants Adele's Laundry, Adele Wants CDs and Lady Gaga Wants Terror

This week, we've got some good sex (thanks, Peaches), some bad sex (sorry, Morrissey), some psychological masochism (for Lady Gaga) and some bad news for digital music (okay, Adele, Thom Yorke). Also, a ton of middle-aged white people just got…

A Q&A With Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys Who Shares His Strong Opinions on Basically Everything

On Thanksgiving, we're betting you got together with friends and family, watched the parade, ate and drank a bunch, then slipped into a food coma on the couch. Well, we took a break from that this year because Jello Biafra…

Last Week: Charlie XCX's "F Word", Adele's B-Word and Pearl Jam's Virginity

Everyone's gone super-political this week (except Courtney Love, naturally). We saw Killer Mike biggin' up Bernie Sanders and RZA backing Hillary Clinton. We heard Thom Yorke talking shit about Tony Blair and watched MIA's refugee-focused video, as well as…

Music, Hear This Hear This: Lucero at The Fillmore

Hear This: Lucero at The Fillmore

Lucero's longevity can, in some ways, be attributed to the timelessness of its music— gruff and emotive alt-country, steeped in the band's Memphis roots, and distinguished by Ben Nichols' unmistakable vocals. With a perfectionist nature and a hard-touring ethic so…

Minus The Bear at GAMH

Seattle's Minus The Bear hasn't released an album of entirely new material since 2012's Infinity Overhead. It also lost its drummer earlier this year, so you might be surpised to find the band on tour. But the reason the band…

Hear This: La Dispute at The Regency Ballroom

La Dispute didn't form until 2004 and didn't release any music until 2006, but the band still plays the kind of dramatic, emotive post-hardcore that '90s kids would've died for. If you're unfamiliar with the Grand Rapids quartet's sound, just…
