Weekend 

When: Sat., Sept. 15, 8:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $12

Playing coy is apparently the new favored technique for increasing hipster street cred. Take lo-fi distortion mongers Weekend, an Oakland trio that's moving to Brooklyn but doesn't really want you to know that, according to its publicist. Also, it's playing one final Bay Area show, which it also doesn't really want you to know about. And it has new music, which may or may not be released. Are you excited yet? Local bands Deafheaven (skinny-jeaned black metal) and Wild Moth (fuzzy, noisy post-punk), on the other hand, which both open for Weekend on Saturday, Sept. 15, at The Uptown (1928 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), appear to be staying in the Bay Area and would probably like their show to be advertised. So don't miss this strong local billing -- just pretend not to notice Weekend. 8:30 p.m., $12. UptownNightclub.com
