For those who do not frequent Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio forums, a West Coast manifestation of the Chicagoan beast known as the PRF BBQ is imminent. 3 weeks from today, Oakland will host a 3-day festival of noise-minded bands, food, and (I’m fairly certain) beer. May 2-4 at Leo’s Audio. A ton of bands from N. CA, Chicago/IL, Austin, LA, Portland, and Toronto, including Eugene S Robinson (Oxbow), Chicago’s Nonagon (featuring John Hastie, Jeff’s former bandmate from 20th-century enigma Jumpknuckle), and the Tunnel. The Tunnel goes on at 4:30 Sunday afternoon!
