This Week in Live Music: Fleetwood Mac, Stone Temple Pilots, Belle and Sebastian

It’s not quite Goatchella, but this week is the unofficial start of Fauxchella or whatever silly Coachella pun with which you’d like to embarrass yourself (note: I am the king of this game). Which means there are too many shows happening and you’re about to go broke…

We’re used to reading news about record stores/venues closing up shop, but local independent music junkies received some refreshing news last week: Oakland’s beloved record store/venue hybrid 1-2-3-4 Go! Records is opening a second store in San Francisco soon, a great (if not counter-trending) sign for the local music scene. More details to come, but our hearts are warmed and our bodies reinvigorated. Let’s celebrate at these no-duh shows:

This Week In Live Music: Ringo Starr, Trina, The Pop Group, and More

Don’t know about you guys, but once spring hits and days get longer, all I wanna do is grab a drink after work, then maybe another, then go straight to the local dancehall for a springtime weird-off. Doesn’t that sound like the greatest day imaginable?

Sad news out of the Fillmore district last week: the beloved jazz/hip-hop lounge formerly known as Yoshi’s—and more recently known as The Addition—shut its doors this past week. In its honor, we suggest putting on a Duke Ellington record (The OKeh Ellington), pouring a glass of sumpin-sumpin, pouring some of said sumpin-sumpin on the floor, and remember that we at least still have Yoshi's Oakland and SFJazz Center.
