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.
