by Dakin Hardwick on April 13, 2011

Duran Duran will be at The Fillmore on Saturday. Jane Fonda is not as likely to be there.


Are you looking for an incredibly busy week? Because we’ve got one brewing!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are way too many things happening in the bay this weekend. Fauxchella for the win! (See, I spelled it out!)

Thursday, April 14th

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

Tame Impala, Yuck at The Fillmore

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

Wednesday, April 20th

Did you know that 4/20 has become one of the best show days in the Bay Area? I wonder why that is…

Cypress Hill, The Literates at The Warfield

Movits!, Planet Booty, Coppe` at Bottom Of The Hill

The Go! Team, Beat Connection at Mezzanine

The Limousines, K Flay, Young Digerati at The Independent
