We begin big on Friday night with Earth at the Great American Music Hall. Dylan Carlsen’s sludgey, droney, stoner metal band has grown and evolved into the template that so many other bands have tried to emulate-- like SunnO))) for example. The line-up is complete with Adrienne Davies on drums, Steve Moore playing trombone and Wurlitzer, and Don McGreevy on bass. I LOVE THIS BAND. And co-headlining with them is Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, which is exciting for me for 2 reasons: I’ve never seen them, and the last time I saw Earth they played with Neurosis, so this will be a completely different experience. I can appreciate and respect a band not contained in a box, either internally or externally created. Click here for a great new interview with Earth.

Then we have:
Saturday night at the 12 Galaxies is Amoeba Music San Francisco’s Amoebapalooza! Employees and friends perform in 15 minute sets, with assured madness to ensue. Some acts have been together and performing for a while, some acts are purely for fun—a one time gig.
