Plenty of shows to choose from this week with Portland's rising dance favorites Reporter at Milk Thursday, the previously profiled Cold Cave alongside the previously profiled Abe Vigoda at Great American Music Hall Sunday and the jam packed Hoodstock throughout Oakland all weekend long.
Our featured act this week, however, is Sacramento's Mayyors. With zero web presence and only a small string of short-run vinyl only releases to their name, the scuzzy punk quintet has managed to garner a sizable cult following in the few short years of their existence. Undoubtedly, it is their chaotic live shows that have converted fans -- these guys simply kill it live. Sadly, Mayyors recently announced they were calling it quits, meaning their appearance at Serra Bowl this week marks one of your last chances to ever see the band in action (their farewell show goes down this Sunday in Davis). With the all around awesome Ty Segall rounding out the free all-ages party there is no reason not to make that rare trek to Daly City Friday night.
Several other solid shows this week including disco-infused Australians Miami Horror at Mezzanine Friday, local instrumental trio Phantom Kicks at Rickshaw Stop Saturday and atmospheric chillers Candy Claws at Bottom of the Hill Sunday -- as always, be sure to consult the full showlist.
