Caitlin Gill, Amy Miller, Matt Lieb at Cafe Du Nord, San Francisco

Bullet points for brevity.

Caitlin Gill:
• “I wanna tell weird dirty jokes to strangers in dark rooms.”
• Bay Area fave with lots of SF Sketchfest and Tourettes Without Regrets experience.
• Welcomed Caitlyn Jenner to the sisterhood of Caitlyns with an op-ed in the New York Times.
• Loves cats.
• Tall.

Amy Miller:
• The funniest person in Portland is now the funniest person in Los Angeles.
• An old friend of Spinning Platters, she had an excellent interview with Dakin last year.
• She has released her first album “Gold” on SubPop, meaning that bands like Sleater-Kinney and Soundgarden are lucky enough to share a label with her.

Matt Lieb:
• “Error establishing a database connection.” Matt looks to be having website difficulties.
• Loves Star Wars.
• Also tall.

Roots-rock trio playing for a good cause in Marin. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Center for Judicial Excellence, a non-profit that works on the behalf of abused children.

Chicago, The Doobie Brothers at the Concord Pavilion

The cassettes in your Dad’s Toyota back in 1979.

Zakk Sabbath (tribute), Beastmaker at Slim’s, San Francisco

Zakk Sabbath is Zakk Wylde’s pummelling tribute to Black Sabbath. Strap in for huge slabs of expertly-delivered riffs. “War Pigs” has never been more important or prescient.

Nerf Herder, Fartbarf, The Started-Its at the Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco

Big ol’ friendly nerd punk rock. And they are responsible for the Buffy The Vampire Slayer TV show’s theme song. I once saw Parry Gripp, the lead dude of Nerf Herder, play most of a show at Bottom Of The Hill on a sweltering summer evening in a thick parka – for no reason at all other than to do it. He is a visionary.

Wailing Souls, Ancestree at the Catalyst Atrium, Santa Cruz

Speaking of bands that can’t be stopped – Wailing Souls are still on the road. See them while you can.
