Peace Creep: Show Preview

While plenty of locals lamented the dissolution of blistering S.F. acid-punk band Triclops! back in 2010, at least fans have gotten some solace from guitarist Christian Eric Beaulieu's prolific output since. After exploring more acoustic sounds with his solo project Liquid Indian, a sojourn in Los Angeles found Beaulieu working with the likes of Mars Volta singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala, legendary punk bassist Mike Watt, and Melvins drummer Dale Crover in the experimental collective Anywhere. The group produced an album of epic, windswept psych-folk for ATP Records in 2012, but by the time a follow-up EP appeared late last year, the guitarist had returned to S.F. New band Peace Creep reunites Beaulieu with explosive Triclops! drummer Phil Becker in a power trio that packs corrosive riffs into tunes recalling the hooks and heft of classic Screaming Trees and Dinosaur Jr. This show celebrates the group's debut EP for Jello Biafra's storied Alternative Tentacles label.
