King Woman @ Starline Social Club
Doom metal made haunting by Kristina Esfandiari's vocals. Be sure to check out her solo project, Miserable, which is more toned-down, nuanced, and atmospheric.
Parallax 48 @ The Hole
Cascading instrumentals by way of loop pedals inspired by John Cage and Nicolas Collins.
The Growlers @ The Catalyst
"Laconic, reverb heavy psych-rock," as TBB writer Will Reisman so eloquently put it.

Noname @ The Chapel
Chicago rapper Fatimah Warner's debut mixtape Telefone made massive waves with critics and fans alike. The Guardian said Telefone is a "modest, intricate mixtape [describing] her coming of age experiences with such sweet reverie it makes you nostalgic for a childhood you never actually had."
Chad Valley @ Bottom of the Hill
We last wrote about Chad Valley in 2013 when he headlined at Bottom of the Hill. Three years later the R&B inspired electro-pop returns.
Lisa Hannigan @ Slim's
Singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan was the vocal female counterpart to Damien Rice on his albums O and 9.

Priests, Stef Chura, The World & Quaaludes @ Starline Social Club
Priest's debut full-length Nothing Feels Natural is "a series of vignettes -- nine stories that crystallize into a bigger picture about the economics of human relationships, the invisibility of feminized labor, and the dual purpose of art for both the group and the individual" according to their bio.
Diners, Family Video, Secret Peach @ Oakland.Secret
Diners is a truly whimsical and enjoyable smorgasbord of guitar-laden laid-back vibes.
