The Flamin’ Groovies, The Sloths at The New Parish
The current Garage Rock revival has inspired an amazing number of bands to get back together. This double bill features two bands that were important in developing a sound that is more popular today than ever. Both The Flamin’ Groovies and The Sloths started in 1965, and you have nearly one hundred years of experience in rock n’ roll on this stage tonight.
Screaming Females, Upset, Peace Creep at Bottom Of The Hill

Thomas Dolby’s Invisible Lighthouse Live at Swedish American Hall
Thomas Dolby is one of the most important sonic innovators of the last 30 years. This performance features a presentation of a film that who made using an iPhone and a quadracopter, an interview session with a local artist that will not be revealed until the night of the show, and a set of Thomas Dolby performing his greatest hits. Should be one of the most interesting shows you will see this year!
Polica, Marijuana Deathsquads at The Fillmore
Friday, November 22nd
Kate Nash, Emmy The Great at The Fillmore
Kate Nash’s third full length album, Girl Talk, has been criminally underrated and ignored. She has completely dropped the bouncy piano pop, and is now doing a very raw, very heavy garage rock that has far more to do with Pylon or X-Ray Spex than anything you will ever hear on top 40 radio. This is going to be one seriously amazing show.
Foxes, Anya Kvitka, DJ Aaron Axelson at The New Parish

Deltron 3030 w/ The 3030 Orchestra at The Fillmore
Sure, this is the 3rd time Deltron 3030 has played the Bay Area this year. And, somehow, not everyone has seen them. Please, don’t be foolish. The first Deltron 3030 record is a near perfect record. Their latest record, Event II, picks up where the first record left off. And this live show? An epic super group that includes a choir, string section, horns (including members of the Jazz Mafia), as well as the talents of Kid Koala, Dan The Automator, and the inimitable Del The Funkee Homosapien. There is no live music performance like this, and only a fool would pass this up.

An Evening With Pearl Jam at Oracle Arena
There are few bands from the 90’s that have stayed as consistent as Pearl Jam.Their new record, Lightening Bolt, is as good as their classic material. Plus, there’s no opening act at this show. Just one long night with Pearl Jam. Consider it your dream Pearl Jam concert, because it will be.
