Ty Segall
Make a bee-line from your day job up to Haight Street for a free Ty Segall performance at Amoeba, 6pm today.

For the previously uninformed, Ty Segall blows even more wind into the hurricane of garage pop, a genre on heavy rotation in the blogosphere as of late. The combination of crude and unabashedly catchy has pulled in much local support, and he (correction, now a trio including Emily Rose and Shayde Sartin) regularly plays with Nodzzz and Thee Oh Sees.
