Pop-rock explorers, The Greening will be hosting their vinyl release show for their upcoming album Eon v. Aeon, this Friday ay Slim’s in San Francisco. The band describes their music as Collage Rock, infusing catchy rock and roll hooks with all manner of fuzzed-out, psychedelic space tones. But make no mistake; The Greening is definitely still a guitar band as evidenced by the heavy riffage on new tracks like “Into the Fugue” and the prog-rock inspired “A Victory”.
Also performing are Oakland’s Everyone is Dirty, who combine the grit of 90’s era Sonic Youth with the pop sensibilities of Jenny Lewis and Rilo Kiley. Lead singer Sivan Gur-Arieh’s darkly seductive vocals and electric violin are the highlight of the group’s transfixing live performances. Kicking off the night is Sweet Chariot, a local SF group who plays americana biker rock in the spirit of Tom Petty and Gram Parsons.
Stop by Slim’s this Friday to check out some of the Bay Area’s best rock and roll! -Ethan Varian
