Weekly Wooot -- Cults


Yet another jam packed week of shows with the previously profiled Ty Segall and Weekend at Milk Thursday, South Africa's tongue-in-cheek "rap-rave" trio Die Antwoord at Rickshaw Stop Friday and Ganglians, Fresh and Onlys, Grass Widow and more at the Mission Creek Festival's free all-ages rager at McLaren Park Saturday afternoon.

Our featured act this week, however, is Cults. With little more than a bandcamp page to their name, the extremely ungoogleable New York two-piece took the tubes by storm earlier this year when taste-maker Gorilla Vs Bear highlighted their insanely catchy debut single "Go Outside." Be warned -- after one listen, the 60s pop inspired sing-a-long (and just about every oither track from their admittedly limited discography) will be stuck in your head the rest of the week. Backed by a live band, the rising duo will make their SF debut this Saturday with Chicago's folk-pop hybrid Maps and Atlases at Bottom of the Hill. We wouldn't be surprised to see this one sell out, so be sure to snag tickets while you still can.

As always, plenty of other show options this week including dance favorites Boyz IV Men at Eagle Tavern Thursday, local music blogger Katarokkar's monthly indie/comedy night Snob Theater at The Dark Room Friday and experimental krautrock trio Bronze at Amnesia Saturday -- as always, be sure to consult the full showlist.
