Float into space with San Francisco psych-rockers on Thrill Jockey Records
Wooden Shjips at The ChapelThe Chapel (777 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA) Map it $14
If Suicide ever covered “Sister Ray,” you’d end up with something that would fit neatly into Wooden Shjips’ set list. The San Francisco psych-rock quartet has perfected the hypnotic potential of droney keyboards overlaid with fuzzy guitar like few of their peers, signing first to Holy Mountain and then to Thrill Jockey for their third and fourth LPs. Make sure you’re securely tethered to something heavy while listening to Wooden Shjips, or you may just find yourself staring down at the crowd from space.
