Check out our November Picks for a quick offering of what’s on our radar for the coming month: fall into garage rock bliss with Cool Ghouls, get wild at Way Too Fun Fest, rock out with Death Valley Girls, swoon over Pearl Charles and get way into Mall Walk.
11/ 4: Cool Ghouls w/Babewatch @ Leo’s
This Thursday, catch an all Bay Area fronted night at Leo’s Music Club. The surf-punk-garage rock dudes of Crush, Babewatch and Meat Market, will be reppin’ Oakland, while Cool Ghouls will be crossing the bay from San Francisco to lay down the psych-garage tunes. All ages.
11/7: Way Too Fun Fest @ Top Acid
Over 40 dope bands. Free. All Ages. Sick poster from Meg Gonzalez. Make it out to this one and hang with So Many Wizards, Death Hymn Number 9, Wild Wing, Tongues, Surf Curse, The High Curbs, Sloppy Jane, and more!!
11/8: The Shivas w/ Death Valley Girls @ The Smell
If you’re not too beat from WTF Fest, then dive on over to The Smell for a sick lineup featuring local rockers Death Valley Girls, White Fang, and Nani.
11/18: Pearl Charles w/Broncho @ The Independent
LA psych-folk rocker Pearl Charles will be opening up the night at The Independent before The Shelters and Broncho go on, so get there EARLY. Ages 21 and over.
11/20: Mall Walk w/LSD and the Search for God @ The New Parish
Since their start a year and a half ago, Oakland based post-punk heroes Mall Walk have made some impressive strides. Some include a killer 7” and an EP, show dates with the likes of Lower, Gardens and Villa and Kevin Morby, and an opportunity to perform on Seattle’s renowned KEXP. Be sure to catch this three piece suit, as you will be entranced by their musicality and refreshed by their innovative sound at The New Parish. LSD and the Search for God, True Widow and King Woman go on after.
