Three Shows Oakland Shoegaze Band Tanukichan Is Pumped for

Take it from the experts.


“Lazy Love,” the lead single off the debut album Sundays from Oakland shoegaze outfit Tanukichan, is like a tropical summer’s day: warm and hazy, but with a storm brewing in the distance. The album is the work of Hannah Van Loon (Trails and Ways), who here highlights three more bright spots on the cultural calendar. July 13

The Seshen
“I’ve always wanted to go to Night­­­­­­Life, and now one of my favorite Bay Area bands is playing there. A six-piece fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music.” July 12, California Academy of Sciences

My Bloody Valentine
“Super iconic shoegaze band. They haven’t been playing shows for years, so I’m definitely excited about this one.” July 19–20, Fox Theater, Oakland

Astronauts, etc.
Huge fan. Lush music and thoughtful songwriting. Classic soulful vibes and warm ’70s textures. Can’t wait for the album.” Living In Symbol (Company Records), July 27
