Not garage rock related but still pretty cool…

The Independent just announced two back-to-back Dave Chappelle shows tonight, going on sale at noon. SWAG.

Thee Oh Sees announce additional dates (mostly Europe), add Lars Finberg, release a double-LP that may or may not be still in stock at Aquarius

(via east-coasters BrooklynVegan)

Fresh off their energetic “mellow” set at Du Nord, Thee Oh Sees embark on a 25-stop (mostly) European tour, returning to the States for the Woodsist Festival on Sunday, July 31st to head a bill with local SF garage rockers Fresh and Onlys//Sic Alps. Newly added member Lars Finsberg will be providing multi-instrumental support and vocals. The BV article also mentions the singles release, Singles Collection Vol. 1 & 2which if you didn’t have a chance to pick up at the last two Oh Sees shows, is now (and almost certainly, temporarily) stocked by Aquarius.

NOT on the Singles tracklist but will be on Castlemania, available June 14th, is the song I Need Seed, which you can listen to below.

Scion widens campaign to buy hipster love, sponsors free screening of new Garage Rock documentary tonight at Embarcadero Center (tonight)

(Via SFFunCheap)

Ticketing begins at 6pm, and the screening follows an hour later from 7-9. Reportedly featured in the documentary are the bands Jay Reatard, Black Lips, The Dirtbombs, Thee Oh Sees (who are playing tonight at Cafe Du Nord), and Smith Westerns.

Just from the poster above, it looks like a wide subsection of the local Bay Area music scene is getting love in this film. Not quite sure where GIRLS figures in the “Garage Rock” spectrum, but it should be an interesting watch nonetheless.

Added to the Shows/Events page.


“I can actually fucking hear that now.”

Thee Oh Sees play a toned-down set tomorrow at Cafe Du Nord, with no confirmation yet if Christopher Owens will re-up his role last night as lead tambourinist. Kelley Stoltz listed as an opener under the moniker “George Cloud.” $12/8pm.
Ty Segall is slated to play a few weeks later at the Du Nord, on May 9th for $10. Get your tickets…

See Dengue Fever for Free at Amoeba, aka there’s a lot of shit going on tonight

In addition to the saveKUSF/Eagle Tavern night tonight and the tUnE-YarDs tour kickoff show at Great American Music Hall, Cambodian psych-rock outfit Dengue Fever — who fittingly played the Fillmore on National Weed Day last week — is playing a set at the seminal record store at 6PM today. Which I realize is in 90 minutes. Which is just about as long as anyone in this city needs to dig their Chucks out of their closet and ride the 71 over to the Haight in time. If you’re in the area, you should definitely stop by and check them out.
