Fellow San Franciscans, the time has come to slip on your jean jackets and go see the father of garage rock Michael Yonkers. We all know that we adore garage rock, we come from a city that has produced some of the crème de la crème -- two words: Ty Segall. Yonkers provides music that is stripped-down, raw, and carries the essence of loving and creating underground rock 'n' roll. Modifying his own equipment and having released albums on his own label, he is a DIY darling. A veteran of over forty years of rock 'n' roll, he truly is, if not the father, definitely a trailblazer of garage rock. Openers the Sandwitches create songs with beautiful Americana vocals and 1960s garage rock beats. These are girls who are definitely girl-crush worthy -- they sing songs that make you sway with happiness. To top off the night, those of you who want to get down and get funky, can boogie to a set by Bronze.
