A Day To Remember and Pierce The Veiltake over the San Jose State Event Center on Friday...Then hand it over to the man who's bass drops were so earth shaking that Santa Cruz cancelled his show, Bassnectar is on Saturday. Late Friday at the Blank Club is one of the fun and catchy punk band you will ever see with The Swinging Utters. For you punk fans in south county, Infirmities and Anti-Social will lead the pogo fest at the Nine Live Club in Gilroy.
Saturday night is an interesting pairing with Los Angeles Punk Icons X opening for the reactivated Blonde is at the Mountain Winery. For Free on Saturday during the day is the Luna Park Chalk Festival, which oddly is not in Luna Park, has a few bands including Dogcatcher, who were a fun folk rock surprise when I caught their set last year at San Pedro Square Market.
If you can't wait till Friday you can catch a recreation of a Janis Joplin concert with the San Jose Rep, as they put on One Night With Janis. The buzz is LA singer Kacee Clanton nails it as Janis, and if you are a fan that is reason enough to go.
