Window Twins, a SF supergroup of sorts (it's comprised of Exray's Jon Bernson and Fresh & Onlys' Tim Cohen) released  a new album this week, called Wish, which has the easy breezy jam-session quality of Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes. Give it a listen on Bandcamp! [via Bandcamp]

Oakland's The Coup revealed a funky new collaboration track from their new album Sorry to Bother You (out October 30th) that features Killer Mike and Das Racist, called "WAVIP." [via The Bay Bridged]

Hard-at-work Zion I premiered their new video for the anthemic "Re-Load," an excellent track off their latest LP ShadowBoxing. [via YouTube]

Way back in 1977, KISS and its Army invaded Cow Palace, and SFGate.com has a slew of amazing vintage photos to prove it. Take a stroll down Memory Lane for old times' sake. [via SFGate.com]

Ty Segall made his late-night TV debut on Conan this week...it's actually kind of crazy to see him shred during "Thank God for Sinners" on Conan's shiny, sterile stage. [via HuffPo]

The San Jose Rock Shop is opening a brand new retail space/venue in downtown San Jose that will be a breath of fresh air in the city's super small scene. To celebrate, they’ll be ringing in their new space with a full weekend of inaugural shows, running from October 19th-21st. [via The Bay Bridged]

Former Bay Area gay glitter rock band Hunx & His Punx leader Seth Bogart made good on his plans for a variety show and premiered a preview of the first installment of Hollywood Nailz, and it holds a lot of promise. It features appearances by King Tuff, King Kahn, Nobunny, and Shannon and the Clams; skits; hilarious fake ads; and a fake competition between bands. [via SF Weekly]
