Jesus Sons and The Electric Magpie roll through Brick & Mortar

Jesus Sons are rolling through Brick & Mortar tomorrow night to soundtrack your full moon Friday the 13th with grimy riffs and gravely vocals. Weaving the experimental underground of 1960s New York City with the easy rider vibes of the 1970s California, Brandon Wurtz, Shannon Dean, Bert Hoover, Erik Lake and Chance Welton wear their dusty layers of vintage influence like badges of honor. Their music carries in it the American mindset of combatting modern discontent with rock and roll, long motorcycle rides and generous amounts of whiskey and beer, and they encapsulate this attitude without pretense. If you're looking for an antidote [...]

Jesus Sons to play Brick and Mortar

There’s been a lot of talk about the end times of San Francisco’s psych scene, and its subsequent migration to the southern part of the state, lately.

Photos by: Emily Alexander A good show is never hard to find in San Francisco, but it is rare to witness one where every band on the lineup gives you something new to be excited about. The right bands come together in the right place at the right time, and you find yourself in a state of interstellar show bliss, which is exactly what I found Wednesday night at The Chapel. Jesus Sons kicked things off with a straightforward, steady procession of jangly guitar goodness. With three guitars on stage, manned by Shannon Dean, Bert Hoover and lead vocalist Brandon Wurtz, these [...]

Those Darlins coming to The Chapel with Diane Coffee and Jesus Sons

There's a lot happening in San Francisco tonight. See for yourself. Choosing a show to go to won't be an easy decision, but if you're looking for some primitive rock and roll, you want to be at The Chapel. Riding high on the September release of their third studio album, Blur the Line, Those Darlins from Nashville are headlining the Valencia St. music house with their attitude-drenched, guitar-driven rock. The band found a way to tighten up and deepen their songwriting style for its latest offering, allowing it to dig into who they are and where they come from without losing the [...]
