Listen Up - A Huge Week In Music: Birds & Batteries, Pixies, Tempo No Tempo and Many More

From old nostalgic favorites to up-and-coming locals brandishing fresh material, and famous singers fronting other collectives, all we know is that by the end of this week our wallets will be drowning in emptiness and we'll need at least another week to recover. You know that old saying, "You can sleep when you're dead?" We'll be utilizing this theme to power through this thoroughly heargasmic week ahead of us.

Listen Up: Of Montreal, Snoop Dogg, Maus Haus and Spinnerette Play This Week

After a slow couple of weeks on the show circuit, the second half of summer tours are beginning to pick up speed once again. From big names to small local fames, every single venue in the City seems to be featuring at least one showstopper this week. Check out our picks for the week:

Tonight at Bottom of the Hill: Battlehooch

Tonight a rare collection of local break-throughs combine forces to celebrate Battlehooch’s album release party for their latest electro-prog compilation, Piecechow. A bunch of UCSC grads, these guys have gained underground respect and fame from musicians and freak-noise fans alike. At the show, expect rampant spandex outfits, unpredictable stage antics and staggering genius musicianship. They’ve street busked, they’ve gained a huge following and now they’re taking it on the road for their Piecechow tour.
