Weekly Wooot -- A Place to Bury Strangers

Epicsauce has teamed up with the excellent San Francisco blog SFist -- each week we provide SFist readers with a preview of the upcoming week in music.


An absolutely jam packed week with with punk legend Mike Watt at Bottom of the Hill Tuesday, local garage-rock favorites Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall at El Rio Wednesday and a free epicsauce.com sponsored party with French Miami at Milk Thursday.

Our featured act this week is Brooklyn based shoegaze revivalist A Place to Bury Strangers, who play The Great American Music Hall Wednesday. Taking a clear cue from Jesus And Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine, the so-called "loudest band in New York" blends layer upon layer of near-deafening guitar, droning bass and reverb-drenched vocals together to create an absolutely thunderous wall of sound. Yet like the aforementioned shoegaze pioneers, beneath the ever-present noise are glimpses of pure pop bliss -- dreamy melodies, dance-worthy beats and those romantic hooks you just can't help but hum along with. With the much hyped electro-rock duo The Big Pink rounding out the bill, this one is sure to be a memorable night -- just remember to bring your ear plugs.

Plenty of other great options this week, including electro-pop star Little Boots at the Fillmore Tuesday, rising local trio Geographer at Rickshaw Stop Thursday and ever-so-elusive UK producer Fake Blood at Mezzanine Friday. As always, be sure to consult the full showlist.
