Psychedelic Rockism 

Modern psychedelic rock gets a bad rap; endless comparisons to the genre's pioneers and apathy among general audiences plague its artists, who must fend off irrelevance at every turn. Yet San Francisco's The Love X Nowhere, a quintet of experienced local musicians, keeps fighting the good fight while earning quiet credit from fans and critics. And yes, they sound like Pink Floyd. Friday, they play the Oakland Metro with support from the Catholic Comb, 2006 Express readers' pick for best band, and Walnut Creek alt-rockers Mister Loveless. 9 p.m., $10. OaklandMetro.org
