  • My Bloody Valentine in 2008.

What's the loudest thing you've ever heard?

If your response isn't "a My Bloody Valentine concert," prepare to have it updated. On the heels of releasing their long-awaited third album, mbv, this spring, the Irish blare-merchants are planning a tour that will stop in San Francisco later this summer. If the last S.F. show in 2008 was any indication -- their climactic noise-detonation was heard for blocks around SOMA -- this performance should make jet engines sound mellow.

The band comes to Bill Graham Civic Auditorium Friday, Aug. 23. Tickets go onsale this Friday, June 14, at 10 a.m., and will sell for $45. Better start saving up for some really good earplugs.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
