While a lot of Bay Area bands tend to embrace the sunny, psychedelic side of their city's sound, San Francisco’s Weekend have seemingly chosen to embrace their hometown’s foggier side. Formed in 2009 by Shawn Durkan (bass/vocals), Kevin Johnson (guitar), and Abe Pedroza (drums), Weekend quickly made a name for themselves with their post-punk shoved through a shoegaze filter sound. The trio’s pounding bass'n'drum rhythms lay the groundwork for Johnson’s wall of reverb-drenched guitar noise, giving the songs a dark, subterranean feeling. After a couple of limited vinyl singles, the band signed on with Slumberland Records, and released its full-length debut, Sports, in 2010. ~ Gregory Heaney
