An absolutely packed week of shows with Twin Sister at Rickshaw Stop tonight, the previously profiled Ty Segall at Amnesia Friday and Los Angeles-based beat wizard Baths with chillers Memoryhouse at Rickshaw Stop Saturday.
Our featured show this week, however, is The Night Marchers. If you ask us, indie musicians don't get much more prolific than John Reis. After finding initial success in the San Diego quartet Pitchfork, the Southern California legend went on to form not just one but three of the more influential bands of the 90s and early 00s -- Zeitgiest jukebox stalwarts Drive Like Jehu, garage-inspired punks Hot Snakes and MTV Buzz Bin darlings Rocket from the Crypt. With The Night Marchers, the 41-year-old veteran continues in the purist rock tradition he explored throughout his various incarnations -- above all else, you can look forward to Reis' unmatchable trademark swagger. The Night Marchers will be joined Tuesday by Obits, the latest project from Reis' ex-partner in crime Rick Froberg, making this the closest thing to a full on Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes reunion in years.
Several other solid shows throughout the week including the previously profiled Mi Ami at Rickshaw Stop Wednesday, local party favorites HOTTUB at Milk Thursday and Wolf Parade at Fox Theater Friday -- be sure to consult the full showlist.
