Upcoming Show Roundup: Thao with The Get Down Stay Down, Fuck Buttons, Rank/Xerox, Starfucker and more

Wednesday, May 12th


Fuck Buttons
and Clipd Beaks at Great American Music Hall [$16]

While Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion may have been the go-to critic's pick last year, Fuck Button's sophomore LP Tarot Sport was a more than worthy contender for 2009's album of the year. Armed with an array of drum machines and synths generally associated with electro, the duo inexplicably managed to create a post-rock masterpiece in the spirit of Mogwai, God Speed You Black Emperor! and Explosions in the Sky -- if you slept on this one, we strongly recommend giving it a listen. Be sure to catch the Bristol, England-based duo tonight at Great American Music Hall.

Other picks:

Beehive Spirit, Common Loon and Alright at Elbo Room [$6]

Neighbors, Organ Trail and Psychic Handbook at Uptown [free]

Jakob Dylan and Three Legs, Neko Case, Kelly Hogan and The Felice Brothers and honeyhoney
at The Regency Ballroom [$25]

 

11th Annual Oyster Fest Answers the Prayers of Local Oyster Lovers

Everyone I know is obsessed with oysters. Here in San Francisco, we eat oysters every which way: deep fried in po' boys, barbecued to succulent perfection, swimming in a citrus bath of Peruvian ceviche and half-drunk during happy hour along with an ice cold Guinness, lemon wedges and Tabasco. For those who count themselves true, salivating oyster-philes, it's pretty much the Super Bowl: the 11th Annual Oysterfest is coming to the Great Meadow at Fort Mason to celebrate the most revered of bivalves in a single action-packed afternoon on Saturday, May 15th.
