The Trail of Dead Winds Thru S.F. in Mid-March (Be Afraid ... Be Very Afraid)

Posted By on Wed, Jan 14, 2009 at 12:43 PM

Arty Texas post-hardcore band ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead has a new album, The Century of Self *, due out in February. The group'll also be hitting the asphalt for a national tour, which finds its way into Slim's on Monday, March 16; tickets cost $18 and go on sale this Sunday, Jan. 18.

Hopefully the boys won't cause too much damage to the local drinkeries -- unlike this past New Year's Eve, for example, when guitarist Kevin Allen was arrested for going full-on Pete Townshend '64, smashing a (get this) Guitar Hero controller and destroying a pricey plasma TV in a fit of game-related-and-alcohol-fueled frustration. According to the Trail of Dead fansite, "Austin police were called to an incident late on New Year's Eve at 7th Street's Beauty Bar after a patron, later identified as Allen, smashed a television with a gaming accessory and threw the console at a passing car outside the bar." Hilarity! It couldn't have happened at a more annoying, pseudo-hip liquor establishment. -- J.G.

* Presumably named after the excellent BBC documentary mini-series by Adam Curtis; Google Video and/or Netflix that shit for some illuminating brain food.

  • 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.'"
