RIFF wants you to get out to more shows! To help you with that, here are our picks for where to go and who to see next week, April 3 to 10. Our concert calendar features artists of all genres, with a focus on the best hidden gems the local music scene has to offer. If you’re looking for something to do this week, look no further.
Monday, Tuesday — Bring Me The Horizon — The Warfield
Metal rockers Bring Me The Horizon are out on The American Nightmare Tour in support of the band’s 2015 album, That’s The Spirit. Monday’s show is sold out, but thankfully, night two still has tickets available. Underoath and Beartooth are the supporting acts for both nights. These are must-see shows for any metalheads in the Bay Area.
Wednesday — Joyce Manor — Rio Theater
Indie pop-punk band Joyce Manor kicks off its A California Coast Tour next week, having released their newest album, Cody, last year. The tour starts in Santa Cruz. Tijuana Panthers are opening on most of this brief tour. After this, Joyce Manor heads out on an Australian tour while Tijuana Panthers return to Slim’s on April 21.
Thursday — Third Eye Blind — The Chapel
It’s been 20 years since Third Eye Blind first hit the streets of San Francisco. Stephan Jenkins, Brad Hargreaves and their newer bandmates return this week to play their self-titled debut album in its entirety at The Chapel. Their previous Bay Area gig, at 2016’s Outside Lands, drew a huge crowd. The band will also plan on playing a few songs off of its latest EP, We Are Drugs. The show is sold out, but Third Eye Blind will return to The Greek Theatre in Berkeley on July 23. Emily Afton will open tonight’s show. She released her latest album, Archetype, last year.
Thursday, Friday — Descendents — The Catalyst
Punk rock fans are in for a treat because the Descendents are playing back to back shows in Santa Cruz. This band has been around for four decades, and recently released Hypercaffium Spazzinate, its first album since 2004. Thursday’s show will have Radkey and PRV13 opening while Friday will have Radkey and Western Addition.
Sunday — DREAMCAR — Great American Music Hall
This might be one of the most special shows of the month. DREAMCAR, a group featuring members of AFI and No Doubt, will release its self-titled debut album next month and stops in San Francisco Sunday. Oslo, another band with former No Doubt members, is opening this show.
