Record-Release-Square(flier by Michael Bingham)

At the end of the month San Francisco’s Creative Adult will be releasing their sophomore record, Fear of Life, which sees the band further departing from their formative hardcore stylings and channeling the more palatable melodies of ’80s Britpop. Despite the intentional shift, there’s still a thick coat of psychedelia across the top — something that’s always been present in their sound.

The show marks the end of not only Creative Adult’s West Coast tour, but also serves as a homecoming show for Happy Diving, who will have just finished their first national tour in support of Electric Soul Unity, a dense rock record with plenty of hooks. Joining the two are San Francisco’s Plush, who’ve been making frequent appearances around the Bay since their excellent Father/Daughter debut, Please, a five-song EP. Listen below and pre-order tickets at Bottom of the Hill’s website.
