Scottish alternative rock outfit The Jesus and Mary Chain stopped off in SF last weekend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album Psychocandy. Closing out its nine-city North American road trip at The Warfield on a Saturday night, the five-piece warmed up the crowd with songs from across its catalog before digging into Psychocandy and playing the 14-track LP from start to finish. Australian psych/alt-rock duo The Black Ryder, performing tunes from their 2009 debut Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride and their 2015 follow-up The Door Behind the Door, and local DJ Omar Perez opened the show.
