Bay Area residents need but the slightest excuse for a weekend getaway down to Big Sur, sure -- but for local fans of woolly indie rock, the annual Woodsist Fest is pretty much the best justification imaginable for that two-hour drive. The festival takes place over a weekend at the Henry Miller Library, a placid and idyllic locale tucked away in the coastal redwoods. Which, come this August 4 and 5, will be an amazing setting to see both local favorites like Thee Oh Sees and the Fresh & Onlys, as well as out-of-towners like Real Estate, Woods, and Pierced Arrows. Tickets for the festival go on sale today; check out the full lineup after the jump.

Saturday, Aug. 4

Real Estate

Pierced Arrows


White Fence

The Mantles

Sunday, Aug. 5

Thee Oh Sees

The Fresh & Onlys

Peaking Lights


Sounds like a great chance to see these bands outside of the usual club setting. Tickets for the Woodsist festival go on sale at noon today (March 9). The Woodsist website also has some recommended places of lodging here, so you can spend the night down Big Sur.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
