Wavves: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013

After releasing two self-titled albums as a San Diego bedroom punk keen on songs about goths and weed, Wavves' Nathan Williams saw his career flash before his eyes when a drug cocktail sunk his set at Barcelona's Primavera Sound, leading his drummer to quit and his tour to be cancelled. Four years later, Williams is dating indie-punk princess Bethany Cosentino, working with MTV and Adult Swim, and releasing his first LP with Mom + Pop, titled Afraid of Heights, on March 26. It's the kind of redemption that may only be possible in America. Expect a preview of Williams' new, more mature songs this Friday at Bottom of the Hill, and understand that it's likely the smallest place you'll see Wavves for a long time. Opening are the Los Angeles garage-punk misfits FIDLAR, who flirt with a Wavves-esque meltdown nearly every night.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
