Weekend's Darkly Soaring "End Times" Now Soundtracks a Dexter Teaser

Posted By on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 at 8:50 AM


The post-punk/shoegaze band Weekend graduated last year from local phenom to national thing with the Slumberland release of its debut album, Sports. Now the band is becoming even more of a thing: Its soaring single, "End Times," soundtracks a new teaser for the sixth season of the Showtime series Dexter. Which, bring on the champagne! But really, we just wanted a chance to remind you how good this song is. Watch the tease after the jump, and grab an MP3 of "End Times," too.

  • 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.'"
