The Independent in San Francisco is one of the best places to see live music in the City by the Bay. It’s small, intimate, and acoustically well put together. When Black Mountain rolls through town late in August, it’s a show that you will want to be at. This a venue that sells out quickly, so you’ll want to make that commitment soon. The band is touring after releasing a very interesting “soundtrack” to the post-apocalyptic surf film Year Zero. Catch them in San Francisco in one of our must-see shows on August. Ticket info and songs from Year Zero after the jump.
Year Zero was an interesting project for the Vancouver based band to take on. It’s not a true soundtrack in the sense that the album is an almost experimental take on their previous three releases. The songs including samples from their previous material, and are mixed into a hazy and somewhat dream-like musical vision. It’s an interesting listen no doubt, and is best experience after listening to their whole catalog. You can listen to “Mary Lou” from Year Zero right here:
Their Independent show has the potential to be one of the highlights on San Francisco’s summer of music. Catch them at the Independent for only $17. Grab tickets at the link below, and we’ll see you there!
