Betty's continues to be the place to get your stuff-that's-noisy fix. This Saturday features the touring combo of San Fransisco's Work and Piles. The former takes the gritty lo-fi you've come to love from the likes of Times New Viking and Wavves but focuses the style more toward skronk than melody. Piles take a similar path, albeit an electronic one, and with a bit more penchant for that melody stuff. I tried to find YouTube footage or anything like that, but those band names aren't particularly Internet friendly.
Opening are locals Hunted Horse, a band that, in another time and place, probably would've been called freak folk. You'd recognize it: singer-songwriter stuff with weirdo tendencies. Also playing are Dude Cruise, featuring former and current members of Bad Friend, High on Life, Big Nurse, Deluxin', BYOP, and a shit ton of other stuff. I haven't heard them yet, but I'll sign up as a supporter based on the name alone.
