San Francisco’s very own King Woman will always be an act not worth missing, especially now that the lead and brain of it all, Kristina Esfandiari, is touring all over, (her project Miserable just got back from a tour in Mexico) and is mostly residing in New York.

If you’ve been lucky enough to catch King Woman before, you know that it’s an ethereal experience, but if you haven’t, this Saturday is a perfect chance to understand how otherworldly seeing them perform really is. It’s especially perfect because two other amazing local bands are sharing the stage with them at the Great American Music Hall: Plush and Mane.

King Woman recently released their first full LP, Created in the Image of Suffering via Relapse Records which got a 8.2 on Pitchfork. I may hate rating systems for music, but that’s better than five of Metallica’s albums got (to be fair, Ride the Lightning got a 10). I also am biased because I love King Woman more than I love Metallica. I also love Plush and Mane more than I love Metallica.

The opening bands are perfect lead-in to King Woman. Plush has the amazing vocals of Karli Helm to bring you back into who you want to be, and rumor has it that Plush is working on a new album. Mane has the haunted reality of a female lost in the Bay internalized into song, and this show also doubles as the release of their debut album, Alpha Female.
