Weekend @ Independent

Admit it, you wanted to check out that new earthquake exhibit tonight anyway, you just didn’t know it would be soundtracked by two killer indie bands. Win tickets to the California Academy of Science’s Nightlife and catch rapidly rising Brooklyn trio Violens and San Francisco’s own Weekend tearing it up in an incredible venue. Was that an earthquake? No, it’s just the floor shaking from all of the dancing and air guitaring you’re likely to experience in the crowd at tonight’s show.

This is the first of three California dates Violens will be playing next week to celebrate the release of their latest album, “True,” on Slumberland Records. Check out a few tracks streaming below.

San Francisco post punk group Weekend’s smooth sonic sound has earned them comparisons to old school icons Joy Divison and landed them tour dates with indie darlings The Kills.

In honor of the 1906 earthquake, the SIXTH entry will snag a pair of tickets to tonight’s earthquake exhibit rock show – to enter, email contest@thebaybridged.com by 2:00 today. See you there.
