Do you have any idea what Southpaw Records is? Well, if you’ve ever heard Ty Segall, Bare Wires, or The Sandwitches, you do, because they’re all on this label that’s celebrating its first anniversary at, in my opinion, one of the best bars in the Mission, Amnesia. Tonight for a $5 cover, you can see a set by each one of these bands and dance your little ass off.
If you haven’t seen a show at Amnesia, it’s important to know that it’s not that big of a space, which makes it great to see smaller acts before they sell out and go HUGE, but also requires that if you actually want to see the performers you’re hearing, you’re gonna want to get there kind of early-ish to snag a good spot near the front. Luckily Amnesia is already a really cool bar and has some drinks I promise you’ll be a fan of if you get past the hokey names. AND if you haven’t seen Ty Segall before, five bucks is a total steal because he puts on an AMAZING show. I’d go to this just for him, but Bare Wires and The Sandwitches are also pretty awesome in their own way.
