Golden Void with Joel Robinow Band and Phil Manley. 9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 23, at Hemlock Tavern. $7; hemlocktavern.com.
Behold San Francisco, where the threads of psych-rock never wear out. The latest arrival on the local scene is Golden Void, a supergroup of sorts featuring members of Earthless, Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound, and Eyes. Regular fans of mind-expanding rock will find plenty of good stuff here: lush canyons of riffs that rise up into searing climaxes, blazing bluesy guitar solos, and lots of those panoramic, sweeping melodies that loose, guitar-driven bands issue better than anyone. This week Golden Void celebrates the release of its debut album on Thrill Jockey, a Chicago label that has long nurtured the Bay Area's trippiest rockers.
