Weekly Wooot -- Weekend

weekend_0.jpg

Yet another packed week of live music with lo-fi punk outfit Dadfag at El Rio tonight, noisy local psychedelic trio Late Young at The Knockout Thursday and the previously profiled Thee Oh Sees at Oakland's Uptown Saturday.

Our pick for this week, however, is San Francisco's own Weekend, who play Hemlock Friday. Easily one of our favorite bands to emerge in the past year, the trio's infectious sound pays a certain homage to Psychocandy era Jesus Mary & Chain, with a similar pop sensibility and love for tinnitus-inducing feedback as the shoegaze pioneers. Despite having only a handful of released tracks and live appearances under their belt, the group has managed to make quite a name for themselves over the past year, landing opening spots for uber-hyped acts Japandroids and Little Girls, releasing a limited run 10" on the in-demand label Mexican Summer and most recently playing tastemaker Gorilla Vs Bear's insanely stacked SXSW showcase -- all signs point to 2010 being the breakout year for the band. As we have noted in the past, these Hemlock shows are known to fill up fast, so be sure to arrive early.

Plenty of other great options this week including Oakland's synthpop solo act Former Ghosts at 21 Grand tonight, previously profiled perennial favorite Ty Segall at Hemlock Thursday and Montreal's We Are Wolves at Bottom of the Hill Saturday -- as always, be sure to consult the full list.
