The Joy Formidable, The Lonely Forest at Bottom Of The Hill
This Welsh trio does pretty ecstatic dance rock. Frontperson Ritzy Bryan is one of the most dynamic performers that I have ever seen, and this show is highly recommended!
PJ Harvey at The Warfield
Friday, April 15th
Scissor Sisters, OH LAND, Baron Von Luxxury at The Warfield
Who loves awesome, sexually ambiguous disco/prog/glam rock? Everyone, that’s who! One of the top 10 live bands in America, as well!
CSS, HOTTUB, Princeton at Mezzanine
Saturday, April 16th
Cut/Copy, Holy Ghost! at The Regency Ballroom
Still sad that you missed LCD Soundsystem’s last show? It looks like Cut/Copy & Holy Ghost! will be keeping the electro funk alive and well all weekend. Strap on something cute with comfortable shoes, hydrate and get your booty out to The Regency!
The Residents at Bimbo’s 365 Club
Duran Duran at The Fillmore
Sunday, April 17th
ANAL CUNT. ( A.C. ), Strong Intention, Murder Construct, Knifethruhead, Shitty Fucker, Anal Mucus, + + at Oakland Metro
Anal Cunt are the greatest band in the history of novelty speed metal. Seriously. 30 second songs of pure ridiculous, offense thrash.
Shall I keep going? I shall….
Wire, Lumerians at Slim’s
For those of you too cool to see Anal Cunt, have something a bit more PC
Monday, April 18th

One crazy double bill, to weird to be playing he Fillmore, but is! This is the ultimate experimental rock double, and maybe one of the best Monday night packages ever!
!!!, Extra Classic at The Independent
The New Pornographers, Menomena at The Regency Ballroom
Tuesday, April 19th
Janet Jackson at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
Sorry, but this is my favorite Jackson. RIP Michael & all, but Janet kept the dream alive, and is still working her booty off. Plus, two nights of only #1 hit singles? What an awesome fete! (also 4/20)
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Twin Shadow, Catwalk at Great American Music Hall
