Monday Hangover: Air Guitar, Matt and Kim, Tom Petty, Faust, Live 105's BFD

Posted By on Mon, Jun 7, 2010 at 6:21 PM

Summer has arrived people. You know what that means: there are several hours during he day in which you can wear shorts (in select city micro-climates) before you start freezing to death and regretting your wardrobe choice. But that's what weekends are for: drinking enough to feel comfortable in shorts outdoors after the sun slips away.

The U.S. Air Guitar Championship went down at the Fillmore, and the best imaginary-guitar players were on hand to shred it up (some in shredded short-shorts) before a panel of judges and fans.

Photographer Christopher Victorio captured the Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show at Oracle Arena, and Music Editor Ian S. Port reviewed it, opening his account with this attention grabbing sentence: "Uptight white people, the remedy you require is Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers."

  • Richard Haick
The Mezzanine was host to the Golden Filter and Matt and Kim this weekend, and writer Patric Fallon granted the whole affair a very honest review.
  • Richard Haick
The devil made an appearance at the  San Francisco Opera Saturday, with the opening of Charles Gounod's Faust. As usual, the devil's in the details, and our reviewer doesn't think this production got it quite right.

  • Richard Haick

Photographer Richard Haick trucked down to Mountain View for Live 105's annual BFD concert and caught Hole, Sublime, Deftones and many more bands at this Bay Area rite of passage.

Now, get on with your week, faithful readers. And by "get on with your week," we mean no will notice if you take a quick nap in the storage room behind the copy paper boxes.

  • 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.'"
