The final Punk Rock Sideshow! Nothington, Get Dead, The Lucky Eejits, DJ Tragic & the Duchess of Hazard — SOLD OUT, THANKS!

Friday, October 5 @ 8:30 pm - 1:00 am
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States
+ Google Map

NOTHINGTON Classic chord-driven punk with a working class, heart on its sleeve aesthetic. At their best, Nothington is powerful and emotional music that’s equally rooted in the Bruce Springsteen or Johnny Cash underbelly of the American working class as much as it owes to the punk rock story of my life. It’s fundamental but with an earnest and undeniable emotion.” – Scene Point Blank GET DEAD is an electric/acoustic punk rock band, forged in the furnace of San Francisco THE…

Thursday, October 4 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States

TERRY MALTS “Kaleidoscopic pop that has a mixture of moods, each song turning to a different sound inspired by the records the band have loved over the years. The driving punk (Buzzcocks, The Undertones) that has been a cornerstone of the group’s sound sits snugly with songs steeped in indie-pop and power-pop (The Chills, Dwight Twilley).” – Slumberland SEABLITE 4-piece odd pop from SF. LOWER SELF Vocally driven primitive post punk.

+ Google Map

HOT LUNCH is a punk ‘n’ roll band from the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area that specializes in getting loud, getting weird and getting rad. The quartet’s unique blend of brown-acid skate-rock and wah-fuzz proto-metal was born in the bowels of skatanic rituals, biker beer busts and wizard staff meetings. With a head-bludgeoning sound that refuses to take sides (and showers), Hot Lunch are on a hell-bent mission to create the best party soundtrack in the history of all music. Their…

Pins of Light, Chaki, Gravedodger — ADV. SALES HAVE ENDED, TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!

Sunday, September 30 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States

PINS OF LIGHT San Francisco’s Pins of Light reside in that murky musical shadow-territory of the nearly unclassifiable. They craft a brutal and intricate mélange of metal, punk and prog that isn’t quite any of those things. Pins of Light’s most progressive moments are more Motörhead than Mothers of Invention; their metal is more Pink Floyd than it is Judas Priest; the elements of punk are a driving fistfight that’s entirely the band’s own. Singer and bassist Shane Baker, guitarists…

LATER SHOW! Wounded Lion (LA), FNU Clone, Toads — TIX AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR

Saturday, September 29 @ 8:30 pm - 1:00 am
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States
+ Google Map

WOUNDED LION is a scrappy pop formation with more layers than one might think. The LA-based quintet artfully blends crunchy guitar chug and caveman thud with buoyant pop melody and deceptively simple lyrics, uncovering wonky pop gems along the way. The songs hint at melancholy but simultaneously offer infectious choruses and exuberant grooves. The resulting sound is fresh, despite celebrating everything from the Velvets to the Clean, with some CCR thrown in for good measure. Wounded Lion’s live shows choogle…
