9pm – Disastroid w/ PSDSP
Saturday, November 16 @ 9:00 pm - 1:00 am$10.00
Two Heavy Trios. One Night of Post-Grunge Music…
SF’s Disastroid plays heavy, sludgy noise rock that channels the sounds of 90s grunge, modern post-metal, and the Amphetamine Reptile back-catalog. In the last few years they’ve shared the stage with bands Helmet, Fu Manchu, Oxbow, Coliseum, Black Cobra, Future of the Left, Bison BC, Church of Misery, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, and Eagles of Death Metal.
Physical Suicide Deterrent System Project (PSDSP) is an avant-grunge band from the Fairfax, CA. PSDSP combines heavy riffs, melodious, spacy vocals, surprising lyrics, and virtuosic musicianship for a sound that picks up where Soundgarden left off, taking it further toward where Alice Coltrane was going. Lead singer and guitarist Eli Carlton-Pearson first conceived of the band after reading the comically verbose official title of the Golden Gate Bridge’s suicide barrier. Well aware that music had provided him and many others with a reason to live in otherwise hopeless times, he decided to name his band after the barrier, in a move that was both tongue-in-cheek and dead serious. Joined by Brian Wilkerson on bass and Michael Pinkham on drums the band has become a cult favorite in their native Bay Area, and continues to surprise audiences everywhere with a well-rehearsed yet improvisational approach to heavy rock and roll.
