It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Fall at the Fillmore returns with yet another stellar lineup of shows for the upcoming autumn months. We at The Bay Bridged are here to help you navigate the stacked calendar. So grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte (or not…) and come along for the ride. Just be sure to save room for one of the Fillmore’s trademark apples.
Trying to support some hometown heroes? Look no further than Sun Kil Moon (Sept. 29), Tune-Yards (Oct. 20), and three nights with Jawbreaker (Oct 23-25)! Whether you’re more inclined to enjoy the intimate ramblings of Sun Kil Moon, the eclectic expressions of Tune-Yards, or the revitalized punk mayhem of Jawbreaker, these three local acts each put on uniquely killer performances.
If you’re interested in getting your mosh on, the Fillmore has got you covered. How about catching the youthful exuberance of SoCal bands like Joyce Manor (Nov. 3)? Or, if you prefer your moshing to be paired with the artsy, socio-political venting of Parquet Courts (Sept. 27), then, well, the Fillmore has still got your back.
How about catching some legends in an intimate venue? Johnny Marr (Sept. 26) can certainly help in that department.
Perhaps you noticed that Conor Oberst isn’t included on this year’s Hardly Strictly lineup. Well, fret not — you still have the opportunity to catch him and his band, Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band (Oct. 6), at the Fillmore.
Want two great sets for the price of one? Check out the sweet co-headline of Frankie Cosmos and Kero Kero Bonito (Nov. 5). How about getting a healthy dose of activism alongside your alternative folk rock? Try out Ani DiFranco (Oct. 7).
Some of these shows will likely be sold out before the first leaves even hit the ground. Don’t sleep on these ones. Grab your tickets today.
