67 Acts to See This Week

Monday, April 17 to Sunday, April 23

Damn, there are a lot of great shows to see this week. Some majorly big-name acts like Radiohead, New Order, Gucci Mane, and The xx are coming to town, along with some other greats, like The Avalanches, Whitney, Goldlink, and Floating Points.

I’m particularly excited to see the soul legend Lee Field and the Expressions, as well as U.K. grime artist Skepta (who will surely bring down the house at 1015 Folsom). Some local acts are also on this week’s bill, such as R&B artist Xiomara (whose album we named one of the Best of 2016) and the guitar-heavy, indie-rock act Waterstrider (who we also wrote about).

Check out the list below and make sure you listen to our playlist to discover some new artists you may not have heard before.
