Rustie: January 14th (WED) @ The Independent // BUY TICKETS
Scottish producer and electronic innovator Russell Whyte, otherwise known as Rustie, brings his “Green Language World Tour” to The Independent this Wednesday. Releasing his Sunburst EP and Glass Swords LP on Warp Records between the years 2007-11, Rustie’s name rose quickly in the UK dance scene with “some of the freshest, most exciting electronic dance music,” as Dusted Magazine pronounced. His tracks from Glass Swords were even used in a British advertisement for adidas and the Square Enix video game “Sleeping Dogs.” Furthermore, the record went on to win The Guardian’s prestigious “First Album” award. Touring behind his follow-up album Green Language that dropped in August, the 13-track effort has already received critical praise in the states, with Pitchfork naming his tracks “Raptor” and “Attak” (featuring Danny Brown) as two of 2014’s best. Debuting a stunning new stage setup for his largest tour to date, Rustie will be displaying immersive 3D visuals (provided by A-Rock), along with several extravagant effects. Don’t miss this larger-than-life set in one of SF’s most intimate venues.

Contest ends Wednesday, January 14th at Noon.

The Fresh & Onlys: January 15th (THUR) @ Great American Music Hall // BUY TICKETS
The Fresh & Onlys have remained a key cog in SF’s “new garage rock” movement, but the quartet led by Tim Cohen of Black Fiction offers more than just driving, heavily-distorted guitar riffs. Cohen and his three sidekicks — bassist Shayde Sartin, guitarist Wymond Miles and drummer Kyle Gibson — also dabble in psychedelia, new wave, acid folk and 80’s jangle pop. With their catalog spread across multiple record labels, they’ve found a more permanent home in Brooklyn’s own Mexican Summer, which released their 2012 LP Long Slow Dance, 2013 EP Soothsayer and latest full-length album House of Spirits last year. Headlining their 10-year anniversary show at the Great American Music Hall on a Thursday night with support from Cool Ghouls, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel and Fine Points, this local foursome will be ready to give the hometown crowd a night it won’t forget.

Contest ends Wednesday, January 14th at Noon.
