Yet another stacked week of shows with Vancouver-based chiller Teen Daze at Milk Thursday, hawt electronic act Party Effects at Mighty Friday and excellent local garage-rock favorites The Splinters at Amnesia Saturday.
Our pick for this week is Holy Ghost!, who play an Outside Lands Night Show at The Independent alongside Chromeo (DJ Set) this Sunday. Since 2007, the perennially hyped DFA-affiliated act have been churning out impressive disco-influenced remixes and originals in the vein of their mentor and label owner James Murphy. It was only this past May, however, that the duo officially stepped out of the studio and unveiled their six-member strong live band, complete horns, dueling drums and DFA standard issue cowbell. If their live set lives up to the recording, you can expect a dance party come Sunday. Need your James Murphy approved disco fix a little earlier in the week? The folks at Outside Lands have you covered again with a Herculus and the Love Affair night show at Mighty Friday.
Plenty of other show options this week including pysch-heavy locals Lumerians at Milk Wednesday, Portland's rising lo-fi favorite Ghost Animal at Hemlock Wednesday, experimental solo act SAFE at the YBCA happy hour Thursday and punk legend Jello Biafra at Great American Music Hall Saturday. And of course, Golden Gate Park has the trimmed down two-day Outside Lands Festival this weekend with Phoenix, Chromeo, The Soft Pack, Mayer Hawthorne, Electric Six and more. As always, be sure to consult the full showlist.
