jeff is not upsetYou may have missed the Jeff Rosenstock sing-along vocals recording event at 1-2-3-4 GO Records, but you don’t have to fret, because you can still see them at Oakland Metro. Not only that, but Upset will be there too, because they are going on tour together.

Overall, it’s stacked lineup. Jeff Rosenstock has been active in music since 1995, performing in bands such as Bomb the Music Industry!, Antarctigo Vespucci, The Arrogant Sons of Bitches, and so many more. He is really a legend in the scene, and yes he has been playing in the Bay Area a lot more frequently, (but not with Upset).

Upset is kind of like a super group. Ali Koehler was one of the later drummers of the Vivian Girls, and is a frequent drummer for Best Coast. Actually, the first time I saw Best Coast live, she was the drummer and I was so hyped. Vivian Girls will always be one of my favorite bands. But in Upset, Ali is not the drummer, the drummer is Patty Schemel, (aka the drummer from Hole). Yes, that Hole. Yes, that band that has the blonde chick that was married to the guy who was in that band who’s shirt you are wearing. Patty Schemel is a legend. Then Lauren Freeman is pretty talented, just a lot less google-able.

Local band Sun Valley Gun Club is opening. This is not a show to miss. Come out and be emo and proud. Come out and be loud. Come, have fun, and respect other people’s spaces.
