The Great Falls of the Missouri River in 1880

The Great Falls of the Missouri River, 1880.

Do you know what today is? It’s June 13, yes – and that means today is the anniversary of the day that Meriwether Lewis of the Lewis and Clark Expedition caught sight of the Great Falls of the Missouri River for the first time. Bet that made for a pretty good day.

Speaking of finding things, let’s talk about this week’s concerts. Here’s what we’ve got coming up this week in the Bay Area: low people, electric people, minimal people, and a trivia night hosted by the people in Spinning Platters. It’s looking pretty good out there!

So, let’s preview. Preview time. Preview time is go. Previews are starting now and we are going to start the previews now. Previews go!

Low, MONO at the Fillmore, San Francisco

Slow and meticulous music for slow and meticulous people. The band that thought to name themselves Low are the sound of Duluth, Minnesota.

Electric Six, Northern Faces at the Catalyst Atrium, Santa Cruz

Electric Six are responsible for some of the world’s most important and trenchant lyrics including “YOU! I WANNA TAKE YOU TO A GAY BAR. I WANNA TAKE YOU TO A GAY BAR. I WANNA TAKE YOU TO A GAY BAR GAY BAR GAY BAR!”

Mark Eitzel, Tarnation, Sarah Bethe Nelson at The Chapel, San Francisco

Former leader of San Francisco’s American Music Club, Mark Eitzel makes the music that a wisp of fog might make if it could wear a hat and hold a guitar: evocative post-Elvis Costello guitar-based sounds.

Evan Dando at The Chapel, San Francisco

You realize that nostalgia for “the nineteen-nineties” is breathing down our necks already, no?

Supersuckers, Flexx Bronco, Vice Maker at Thee Parkside, San Francisco

What’re they? They’re rock-and-roll! with an exclamation mark, they’re country when they feel like it, ’cause they’re the Supersuckers and they are American.

• Saturday, July 17, 2017

Thee Oh Sees, The Coathangers, Jay Som, Sean Hayes, Duckwrth, Bells Atlas, Never Young, Rayana Jay, Madeline Kenney, Tino Drima At Phono del Sol, 25th and Utah Street, San Francisco

The ferocious/gorgeous garage rock of Thee Oh Sees anchors this noontime concert out by the hospital.

The Minimalists at the Fillmore, San Francisco (seated)

This is one of the smaller amounts of words that I can use to describe two guys who have hewn a career out of using less and are now hosting shows on the subject of less.
