Bandcamp Record Store Grand Opening @ Bandcamp Oakland

Saturday, February 2

25 Years of Dookie @ 924 Gilman
Yeah, we know, that was a quarter century ago.

The Seshen, Sh8peshifter @ The New Parish
On Saturday, the New Parish has a full slate of performers that will move your feet and make you think.

Sugar Candy Mountian, Li Xi @ The Ritz
The former Oaklanders come back around to the Bay — this time to the South, with SF’s Li Xi.

The Lemon Twigs @ Slim’s
Ready yourself for some studied and careful glam rock that sounds right out of 1970, made by two young 20something brothers from Long Island.

Aaron Carter @ Brick & Mortar
Admit it, you’re curious.

Sunday, February 3

Efrim Manuel Menuck @ Rickshaw Stop
“Meandering and eerie music for the end of the world,” the Godspeed You! Black Emperor founder comes to Rickshaw Stop on his own.

The Quilters @ Hotel Utah
If you don’t know the Quilters’ name, you will soon. Look for more on them in these pages in the coming weeks, or get a preview Sunday night at Hotel Utah.
