SAFE 

When: Sat., March 3, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5

Last November, in a much-deserved profile in this paper, esteemed music editor Rachel Swan described SAFE as, among other things, "arresting," "widely admired," and "incorrigibly handsome" -- all true, by the way. In the time since then, the local garage duo, comprised of singer Chris Edley and guitarist Jesse Hadden, has played seemingly every party, bar, and warehouse it could; opened for buzzband extraordinaire and fellow capitalization fan YACHT; had its entire sophomore album get lost in what Edley describes as a "small computer fire"; started all over and made significant headway on the record, set to be released on HimanshuSuri'sGreedhead label; been featured on the front page of the TheFader.com; become an it band among a certain swath of Francophone Belgian music bloggers; and, last but not least, finally joined Twitter. If the pattern holds, the band's show on Saturday, March 3 at Disco Volante (347 14th St. Oakland) may be your last chance to see Hadden and Edley before they win a Grammy and/or climb Mount Everest. With Metal Mother and Mortar and Pestle; 9 p.m., $5. DiscoVolanteOakland.com
