Young Prisms performs 11/26 at Kung Fu Necktie
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 26
The good news: for a holiday weekend, there are a surprising number of great shows going on—all of which provide the perfect opportunity for getting away from your family. The bad news: Just about all of those shows are tonight, which means you’ll need to find a different excuse for leaving the house Saturday and/or Sunday. As for tonight’s best bet, well—we’ve already hyped the KT Tunstall show at The Trocadero earlier this week, we’ve spent a good amount of time praising the new releases by both Kurt Vile and Purling Hiss, and it seems like we can’t go more than a day or so without talking about local mainstays The Hooters. So, we say catch the San Francisco-based shoegaze quintet Young Prisms, which is on tour to promote the upcoming release its debut album, Friends For Now (January 18th on Kanine Records); San Francisco post-punkers Weekend—which released its debut, Sports, earlier this month on Slumberland (and was also the subject of a recent NPR profile)—opens the show. Young Prisms performs with Weekend at 7:30 p.m. at Kung Fu Necktie; tickets to the 21+ show are $5.
Also playing: Kurt Vile And The Violators + Purling Hiss at Johnny Brenda’s (9 p.m., 21+, $10-$12); KT Tunstall + Hurricane Bells at The Trocadero (9 p.m., all ages, $22); The Hooters + Beru Revue at The Electric Factory (8:30 p.m., $49.70)
