Thursday, March 6th

Mirah, AgesandAges, Emily Moldy at Brick And Mortar Music Hall

My favorite fun fact about Mirah is that she was won on an episode of Double Dare and donated all of her winnings to charity. My other favorite thing about Mirah is that she has one of the most beautiful voices in the world and is one of our local treasures here in the Bay Area.

Friday, March 7th

Darlene Love at Nourse Theater

This woman is about as epic a living legend as one could possibly imagine. She sang back up on nearly every important pop single in the 60’s, and has influenced a wide range of bands such as The Ramones, Belle and Sebastian, and Bleached. Tonight she’s doing both a full concert & will be talking about her life and career.

Russian Circles, Helms Alee, Ken Mode at Great American Music Hall

Saturday, March 8th

Nick Waterhouse, Boogaloo Assassins, Donnel at Great American Music Hall

Nick Waterhouse is the living definition of cool. The man has style and swagger, and can even make a Ty Segall song sound like the sexiest vintage soul you’ve ever heard. He is what James Bond would be if he was a soul singer. Every lady will melt at this show. And most fellas.

JD Samson & The Men, Skip The Needle, People At Parties at The Chapel

Sunday, March 9th

Richie Ramone, He Who Cannot Be Named, Bite, The Unfortunate Bastard at Brick & Mortar Music Hall

The Ramones were one of the greatest bands on Earth. Yes, Richie wasn’t the “classic” drummer, but he played on some pretty classic songs, including singing lead on a few. Tonight will be a night of mostly Ramones songs, and that’s pretty much all you need for a fun night out, eh?

Monday, March 10th

Diane Cluck, Sandra Sun Odeon at The Chapel

Tuesday, March 11th

Shannon & The Clams, Marriage + Cancer, Maine at Knockout

The finest surf soul punk band in the bay playing the divviest punk club in the Mission. That’s it. Isn’t that enough?

Wednesday, March 12th

Tool, Failure at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

People are spending way too much money to see one of the most pretentious and overrated bands of the last 25 years pop on stage to play a bunch of meandering 10 minute long songs. And, really, if you think you are ever going to get a new Tool album, just give up. It’s never going to happen.

Rick Springfield at Yoshi’s – Jack London Square
