I've been to lots of great (((folkYEAH!))) events over the years, but this one--just announced--for Saturday, August 29 is pretty much the sweetest lineup they've had yet. For one night the indie promoter is teaming with Kemado Records to host "In the Pines," featuring an incredible bill of psych, folk, metal, and bands that melt those pots together: Woods, Dungen, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Gang Gang Dance, Kurt Vile, Farmer Dave Scher, Saviours, VietNam, and Wooden Shjips. Dude. The one bummer is that tickets have barely gone on sale (supposedly you can grab them for $29 a pop through this site) and already all the cheap accommodations in town are booked/about to be booked up. If you think you might wanna go, I'd get on that ASAP.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. 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.
