I’ve lived in San Francisco for 12 years and I can’t remember a time when The Greening didn’t exist. They’ve been fighting the good fight for so long I feel like some times they get overlooked, but catch just one of their shows and you’ll never forget it—the energy they bring onstage is unreal. There’s a spastic quality to their performances as they channel prog, rock, psych, and pop influences, sprinkle in a dash of punk and a touch of soul, and overlay it all with multi-part harmonies. I don’t know what I’d call it. They call it “collage rock.”
The Greening is releasing a new album, Eon vs. Aeon, on blue vinyl this Friday (available now on CD at the band’s online store) and celebrating with a headlining gig at Slim’s. Everyone Is Dirty and Sweet Chariot are also playing, and I’ve got a pair of tickets for one lucky winner.
