Everyone Is Dirty

Thursday October 26th 6pm

Oakland's Everyone Is Dirty celebrate the release of their new LP, My Neon's Dead, with a live set and signing at Amoeba San Francisco.


Featuring the combination of front woman Sivan Lioncub’s electric-violin sorcery, ultra freaky stage antics and charged lyrics that when paired with her vocals could be at times ethereal and at others mightily ferocious; Chris Daddio’s pawn shop guitar crunch; the driving post-punk bass lines of Tyler English; and Tony Sales’ expressive and explosive drumming, together they coalesce into a force to be reckoned with.


Friday November 3rd 3:30pm
