San Francisco: Off!

You’re so lucky, SF.  You have not one, but TWO opportunities to go see hardcore supergroup Off! this weekend.

One of those opportunities is at Slim’s: Friday, May 11 at 8pm
The other is at Amoeba Berkeley, meaning it’s free:  Saturday, May 12 at 4pm.

This is a wonderful song about an even more wonderful man:


With members Keith Morris (BF!) and Steven Shane McDonald (Redd Kross), I admit that this band ventures into “dudes bein’ dudes” territory, which can get old fast.  But I have mad respect for these guys carrying the classic hardcore tradition and still sounding rad.  Plus, their existence has generated more Ray Pettibon artwork, which no one (NO ONE, I tell you!) can complain about. I will definitely be attending at least one of the shows, although partly just to see Keith Morris’ hair.
