Cold Beat: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 1 2014

Cold Beat leader Hannah Lew and Tony Molina started 2013 together, when she created a music video for his buoyant guitar anthem "Don't Come Back," a single from Molina's solo debut, Dissed and Dismissed. Technically, the video also encompasses "Sick Ass Riff," a 25-second acoustic etude performed by Molina while wearing a Cro-Mags shirt. Molina's album sold out in the wake of fervent critical praise, but the venerable Slumberland label announced its reissue this year — along with his sophomore full-length. Cold Beat released its first EP in 2013, with two propulsive tracks of jagged guitar swipes and unnerving synths tempered by Lew's inimitable vocals. Since both San Francisco acts began breakthrough years with a collaboration, this joint show welcoming 2014 might prove fortuitous. At any rate, it's free.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
