San Francisco expats living in Brooklyn, Weekend return home to the Independent on Friday night to celebrate the release of their sophomore album Jinx, out July 23 on Slumberland Records, and to kick off a couple months of off-and-on touring across North America in support of the new record. Joining the post-punk shoegaze trio at the Indy will be locals Wax Idols and Chasms.

In the the run-up to the Tuesday release of Jinx, Weekend dropped two singles, “Mirror” and “It’s Alright”, both of which expand on the band’s unique interpretation of noise rock that has inspired so many believers since their debut 10-inch single All-American and first LP Sports, both from 2010. Listen to the two new tracks and get full details on Friday night’s show at the Independent below. On Monday, we’ll have full coverage of the gig, right here on The Bay Bridged.
