Monday, October 9
Low Roar @ The Chapel
The Bay Area ex-pat, currently settled in Warsaw, comes home to the Chapel.
Trevor Sensor @ The Crepe Place
He’s coming to SF the night after, but the small (some might say cramped) Crepe Place seems a more appropriate setting for his solo singer-songwriter vibes.

SMSHING HRTS, Naked Walrus, Shipwright @ Bottom of the Hill
This is almost an all-local lineup — Naked Walrus throws the curve.
Pinegrove, Florist, Lomelda @ The Catalyst
Pinegrove is blowing up fast, and Florist isn’t far behind — it might be worth your while to caravan down to Santa Cruz to catch them in the Bay Area this week.

Tom Petty Tribute featuring members of Goodnight, Texas, Con Brio, Tumbleweed Wanderers and more @ Cafe du Nord

Drinks @ Starline Social Club
The long-running collaboration between Tim Presley and Cate Le Bon continues as Drinks, playing a special Oakland show for your hump day wind-down.
Rainer Maria @ The Chapel
Almost three years after coming out of retirement, the cult-status indie band is back together and playing the Chapel.
