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.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
