NOISE: Mmmm...Mammatus -- and more, so much more


Love is meant to be spread around -- like STDs, dear mater always used to quip. But this weekend I'm thinking that the place to be is the Hemlock Tavern. I mean, tonight is EAR (Spaceman 3's Sonic Boom's latest experimento project) -- shroomatronics! Then tomorrow's late lineup features Santa Cruz/San Francisco heavy combo Mammatus -- after Jay Reatard of ye olde Reatards messes wit' your mind at an early show.

Then Sunday - fuhhhh-kkkk -- it's SF's venerable musical mischief makers: Fuck. The band that dare not speak its name. Except that it does. Regularly. With much vim and vinegar.
