This is a past event.


When: Mon., Nov. 12, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20

Japandroids are the guitar-and-drum duo du jour, a The Black Keys devoid of blues and driven instead by punk and DIY aesthetics. Its latest album, Celebration Rock, a likely pick for many year-end lists, has the Vancouver boys borrowing from early Bruce Springsteen to make anthemic rock that, like The Black Keys, has earned them crossover appeal from hipsters to cool dads. Japandroids put on a loud and raucous live show, drawing comparisons to The Replacements, with each member screeching husky vocals while banging out an incredibly full sound from just guitar and drums. They'll stop by The Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco) on Monday, Nov. 12. Sister garage-rock duo Bleached will inject the set with much-needed estrogen. 8 p.m., $20.
