San Francisco trio Giant Haystacks, whose unique blend of punk and post-punk sounds have made them one of our favorite bands, recently announced that they they are disbanding following two final shows this Friday night in San Francisco.

If you’ve never seen Giant Haystacks perform live, the band takes its tight punk anthems and compresses them even further into great short sets bursting with melody and intensity. We’re hoping the guys stretch out their set lengths a little more in their final two shows to accomodate the wealth of material they’ve released, including the great 2005 full-length Blunt Instrument and the trio of EPs released since then. You can find out more information about all of these records and hear samples at Giant Haystacks’ web site and MySpace page.

Friday starts with an early 21+ show at The Knockout, followed by a secret all ages show:

Friday, April 27th (early show)
The Knockout
5pm, $6, 21+
w/ Signal Lost and The Vicious (Haystacks on first)

Friday, April 27th (late show)
Secret Location (hint: take a look at their web site for the info)
8pm, money requested for touring bands, All Ages
w/ The Vicious, Young Offenders, Surrender (GH headlines)

While we’re sad to see them go, these two shows should be a great chance to catch this excellent band one (or two) final time(s).
