Ty Segall 

The ultra-prolific garage rocker returns to the Bay Area.

At the end of the Aughts and beginning of the Teens, Ty Segall was a cornerstone of San Francisco’s garage rock scene, pioneering a washed-out surf-and-psych rock sound that has come to define the region. The singer and multi-instrumentalist has since relocated to Los Angeles, where he remains as prolific as ever. In 2015, he dropped his solo album, Ty Rex, a collection of gritty, distorted tracks with Americana-influenced riffs. He also put out a two-disc album, II, with his group, Fuzz, and started a new band called GØGGS. But one of Segall’s most unexpected and interesting moves was announcing his next solo album, Emotional Mugger, via a VHS tape that he mailed to Pitchfork’s offices. The technophobic album, due out this year, has an accompanying, old-school HTML website (EmotionalMugger.com), on which Segall offers pseudo-scientific observations about our app-enabled dating culture. Segall returns to the Bay Area for two back-to-back shows at The Fillmore on January 18 and 19, the latter of which features the excellent local punk outfit CCR Headcleaner as an opening act.
