An all-too-long hiatus has finally ended for local rockers The Mantles. After playing Oakland’s 1-2-3-4 Go! Records on January 28th, they return to San Francisco this Saturday, February 11th at Engine Works (9pm, $5). Presented by Positive Destruction, the show also features sets by Pamela (celebrating their EP release) and Rat Columns. Chasms is no longer on the bill.
Significant time off has paved the way for new Mantles material, as they reportedly showcased a good amount of it during the Oakland gig. Check out a clip of “Lily Never Married” from that show below, and let’s all hope they’re here to stay.
