If you’re not sure what to do this weekend, consider four options featuring local bands celebrating new releases:
Over at the Hemlock Tavern on Friday night, heavy rockers Glitter Wizard will be partying for the release of their latest album, Hunting Gatherers, on Captcha Records. Stream the whole new album below.
One night later — that’s Saturday — at the Hemlock, MINOT (which includes members of From Monument to Masses and Tartufi) will be serving up a new tour EP, and they’re celebrating with Philistines, an SF/Oakland/Chicago band comprised of vets from Ex-Boyfriends, Vitamin Party and Sweep the Leg Johnny. Here’s a song from Philistines’ new album Therewolves.
Over at Amnesia on Saturday, Tussle will be playing their first hometown show in over a year. It’s also the release show for their latest album, Tempest, which was produced by JD Twitch and features members of Liquid Liquid. Enjoy below:
