Wintersleep @ Hotel Utah, 3/25/09

Tonight made twice in one week that I tested out new venues in SF. And let me tell you, Hotel Utah is an odd one. There are tables and chairs in parts, making finding a place to stand a bit awkward. The ceiling is low until you get right to the stage. And the stage […]

Primal Scream, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Kuroma @ The Fillmore, 3/17/09

I decided to go early tonight. I was viewing this show as a co-headliner affair: I love Brian Jonestown Massacre, and I really like Primal Scream. The Fillmore was practically empty as I walked into the ballroom and claimed a spot at the rail. Promptly at 8, Kuroma opened the show. Lead singer Hank Sullivant […]
