The Week in Event Names: Three Genres We're Inventing Right Now

Is San Francisco's music scene busy and vibrant — and important — enough to sustain our crackpot attempts at taxonomic triangulation? Based on this week's concert calendar, there's reason to believe that the following completely made-up subcultures will be the talk of the rest of the country before the month is out. Prove us wrong, art world. Prove us wrong.

1. Typocore
No longer just the province of metal bands and rappers, the apparent typographical error will take the Bay Area by storm this week, starting with Misisipi Mike Wolf's show at Revolution Cafe and gaining a major boost in credibility when Wavves bring their red-underlined disheveled beach jams to the Rickshaw Stop. The scene hits its apex on Thursday, courtesy of Clipd Beaks at Cafe du Nord and Ssleeping desiresS at Eagle Tavern. (Concord, CA's Apothesary was booked at DNA Lounge that night too, but the gig seems to have been canseled.) Check out Azul's LVRSDLX dance night on Saturday to celebrate a successful week of typocore, if you're not already [sic] of it.
