This show coincides with recent studies that have conclusively proven that enjoying rock music on a Tuesday night can increase your life span by up to TWO HUNDRED YEARS. Come join us...and become the next-closest thing to immortal.
Half San Francisco, half Oakland, all rock, Thunderegg has recorded nearly 20 albums since 1994. Influenced by bands including the Velvet Underground, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Teenage Fanclub, and the Boo Radleys, the Egg takes simple, melodic tunes with sharp lyrics and swirls them up with layers of guitars. Thunderegg's latest full-length is the 11-song space-bar-rock epic Cosmos, recorded by Alan Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Magnolia Electric Co.) in Oakland and featuring the same Bay Area lineup that's on this tour (Alex Jimenez, bass; Reese Douglas, guitar; Andre Custodio, drums). Packaged in a deluxe gatefold and exploding with guitars, Cosmos is the Egg's deepest plunge yet into space, blending the usual clever lyrics, sweet melodies, and ragged rocking with a layered roar that begs to be blasted. The album drops May 11, 2018, on Bleeding Gold Records, but advance copies will be available on the tour—get yours while supplies last! www.thunderegg.org
