MRR Presents: ACID FAST | BEAST | JOYRIDE | SORRY,NOT SORRY at The Knockout in SF, Wed. Nov 11th!


October 27th, 2015 by

This Month in MRR + Thrillhouse Presents: Fuzzed out Oakland power punk favorites ACID FAST promise to Shred 4Eva! The fuzzy wave continues with SF’s JOYRIDE who rip one hella catchy riff after another. SORRY, NOT SORRY bring queer riot-grrl post-punk dissonance and drive every show. Newcomers BEAST are the Bay Area’s post wave of new punk, and they do not play nice.

MRR Presents: BIRTHDAY GIRL / THE LIGHT / ÖTZI at The Knockout in SF, Wed. Oct 14th!


October 12th, 2015 by

This month in MRR + Thrillhouse Presents: Oakland comes to SF. BIRTHDAY GIRL keeps getting better and better at their brand of noise rock-influenced punk. Jack might even do a backflip if you ask. THE LIGHT need no introduction, but play harsh and restless dark hardcore. ÖTZI are one of my favorite Bay Area bands, playing dreamy post-punk that’s both end-of-the-world invoking and danceable at the same time. And DJ Nicole Dunn will be spinning punk and metal jams between bands. Dancing encouraged.
