Rock legend Todd Rundgren is playing in the Mission (and tickets go on sale today at noon)

43-og

It’s at The Chapel on August 30th, at 8pm sharp. The show is called “An Unpredictable Evening with Todd Rundgren,” and thus there’s not a whole lot of other info about what to expect.

Tickets go on sale here – in 60 minutes.

A trio of multi-show residencies by music legends at the Chapel in October

Gotta plan waaay ahead these days.

First is Ariel Pink on October 14th, 15th, and 16th. And check it out:

Everyone who purchases a ticket to one of these shows will receive a digital version of Ariel Pink’s new album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson upon release in September 2017!

Next is Sparks playing an early show and a late show on October 20th, and I hear tickets are going pretty fast. Here’s a recent performance of a song from their forthcoming new album, to whet your whistle:

And finally it’s the great Roky Erickson, performing on Halloween and the night before Halloween! The Halloween show includes Wax Idols performing as the Damned beforehand, and the show the night before will feature Roky playing a set of 13th Floor Elevators classics!

Death Records residency at Darger Bar (formerly Dear Mom), Saturdays in August

Here’s details on the first one, this weekend:

Who would’ve thunk a bar in the Mission in 2017 would close down, reopen as something else, and suddenly be more punk??? (And wow, it’s been about 7 years since there was live music at 2700 16th Street.)

Listen to this jam by Vasas:

RSVP and invite your friends!

Get loud and local!
