Lovers of local indie rock and punk music rejoice – tickets are now on sale for 1-2-3-4 Go! Records’ Go! Go! concert series. The Oakland record label has made this concert series an annual event, where a handful of their favorite artists play shows for a week in mid May.
It’s not a huge one-day festival ordeal or a cluster-fuck attempt to populate every venue in the city. It’s simply five days of amazing local rock bands drawing in crowds to The New Parish and The Night Light in Oakland.
The series kicks off on Thursday, May 16th at The New Parish where Dead to Me takes the stage with support from Kepi & The Mean Jeans. On Friday the torch is passed to The Dwarves, Nobunny, Mean Jeans (again), Trashies and Musk.
Saturday is possibly the night featuring the most buzz worthy Bay Area rock bands, doubling as the record release show for Shannon & The Clams new album Dreams in the Rat House. Also on the bill are Hunx & His Punx, Fuzz, Peach Kelli Pop, and Twin Steps.
On Sunday the series moves to The Night Light, where Synthetic ID, Lenz, and Human Waste show their stuff, before wrapping up back at The New Parish on Wednesday the 22nd with El Vez’s Punk Rock Revue and The Schizophrenics.
