Monday, September 18

LVL UP, Dude York, Cende @ Bottom of the Hill
If you haven’t heard this year’s Return to Love, get acquainted now.

Courtship @ Catalyst Atrium
LA dream pop that sounds about as LA dream poppy as it gets.

Prince Paul, Rap Noir, Z-Man, Melina Jones, DJ Stef, Odd Nosdam @ Elbo Room

Tuesday, September 19

SZA, Smino, Ravyn Lenae @ The Warfield
Supernova-hot R&B star (this date was moved from a smaller venue) and Twitter queen brings her tour to the Warfield, shortly after a Santa Cruz visit.

Nick Waterhouse @ Lagunitas Brewing
Catch the former SF resident soul revivalist way up north at Lagunitas.

Tristen, Jenny O., Andrew St. James @ Bottom of the Hill
Tristen is dissonant rock and roll with a little bit of twang added to taste. Tuesday night, she’ll be backed up by local Andrew St. James.

This Will Destroy You @ The Ritz
Long-time experimentalists bring their slow, seeping, sorta spooky sounds to San Jose, just in time for fall.

Slow things down with the rich, relaxed vocals of Khalid.

Japanese Breakfast, Mannequin Pussy, The Spirit of the Beehive @ Swedish American Hall
We’ve been waiting for this show for months.

If all else fails, come out and groove to the vinyl-spinning expertise of CVC.
