Legendary sludge band Neurosis are celebrating their 30th anniversary by playing some shows in their hometown of San Francisco with some equally legendary openers. The shows happen on March 4-5, the first night will be opened by Sleep and the second will be opened by Shellac. Those are some pretty amazing lineups, and Neurosis have promised 2-hour sets that will vary from night-to-night and cover their entire catalog. Tickets for both nights go on sale Friday (11/20) at noon PST.

Meanwhile, Neurosis frontman Scott Kelly is currently on tour with his Corrections House bandmate Bruce Lamont (also of Yakuza). The two are playing tonight (11/19) in Jersey City at Crazy & the Brains' venue The Funhouse and there are still tickets available for that.

Neurosis' only other upcoming dates are at Roadburn Fest in the Netherlands, which just announced that it will feature G.I.S.M.'s first ever non-Japan show.

Check out all upcoming Neurosis dates and video of their full set at Saint Vitus earlier this year below...

Joan Baez

Legendary folk singer Joan Baez is about to turn 75 and she'll be celebrating that milestone with a special show in NYC at the Beacon Theatre on January 27. The show will feature a ton of special guests, including Jackson Browne, Indigo Girls, Emmylou Harris, Judy Collins, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Damien Rice, Nano Stern, David Bromberg and still more TBA. The show will also be recorded as a PBS special for the "Great Performances" series. Tickets are currently on Chase presale, go on local presale on Friday (11/20) at 9 AM and on sale to the general public on Saturday (11/21) at noon.

That show will kick off a pretty extensive North American tour for Joan, which will eventually take her back through the NYC area for two NJ shows. The first is in Englewood at the Bergen Performing Arts Center on March 6 (tickets available soon), and then she'll play in Red Bank on March 8 at the Count Basie Theatre (tickets).

All tour dates, along with a video of Joan playing live in Ecuador a few years ago, are listed below...

Philly's Kississippi were formed after Zoë Allaire Reynolds and Colin James Kupson met on Tinder in 2014 (true story), and a few months later they dropped the I Can Feel You In My Hair Still EP. This week they'll release its followup, We Have No Future, We're All Doomed, which they recorded with Modern Baseball's Jake Ewald. It comes out on Soft Speak Records and can be pre-ordered here. It's indie rock that has folky qualities but certainly would never be called "folk music," and Zoe's likable voice is no small part of what makes this good. You can check it out for yourself, the full EP stream premieres below.

Kississippi were in NYC earlier this month for a Bronx show with Diet Cig (anyone catch that?) and their only upcoming dates at the moment are in Harrisburg, PA with Tigers Jaw on December 5 and a Philly show the next night.

The Menzingers

The Scranton-raised (but now Philly-based) melodic punk band The Menzingers are once again celebrating the holidays in their former hometown on December 19 at the Scranton Cultural Center. The all-ages show is an all-Scranton lineup with the great Tigers Jaw, Menzingers co-frontman Greg Barnett's brother Bob's band Captain We're Sinking, Tigers Jaw-related bands Petal and Three Man Cannon, and The Sw!ms. Tickets are on sale now, and "all proceeds for the show with benefit Arts Live, which is a music and arts program, funded by the state for children in grades 2 through 12, as well as other youth music and arts programs." Flyer below.

The Menzingers are on tour now with the amazing lineup of mewithoutYou, Pianos Become the Teeth and Restorations. The tour lands in NYC on November 27 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.

In related news, Kevin Devine (who just released a split 7" of Cure covers with Tigers Jaw) filmed a video of himself covering Tigers Jaw's "Cool." Watch below (via Punk News). Tigers Jaw, Kevin Devine, and many other cool bands are playing the BV-presented release shows for his split 7" series in December.

Night Beats

Seattle trio Night Beats will release their third album, Who Sold My Generation, on January 28, 2016 on Heavenly Recordings. The record was recorded on 2" analogue tape and co-produced by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Robert Levon Been (who also plays bass on the record). Night Beats have always been, for me, one of the more interesting bands making garage-psych today, with a strong (old) R&B influence and this new one adds some krauty, motorik elements to their sound which works really well. We've got the premiere of the driving, groovy new single "Power Child." Listen below.

Night Beats only shows are a couple in Canada this weekend. They'll play the M for Montreal fest on Friday (11/20) with Oh No! Yoko, Birds of Paradise and Surf Dads, and then on Saturday (11/21) they'll play Toronto's Night Owl Festival with Mexican Slang, LA Witch, Hooded Fang, B-17, and Fill Spectre.

G.I.S.M. were notorious for their confrontational attitude and violent live performances; frontman Sakevi was known for being particularly dangerous and unpredictable during live shows. Sakevi's live antics include running into the crowd with a chainsaw, attacking front rows with a lit flamethrower, beating random concertgoers with a club, and firing gun shots on stage with a revolver. Sakevi is also known to attack journalists and photographers who try to approach him. [Metal Archives]
Japanese crust punks G.I.S.M. got their start in the early '80s, and continued through the early '00s, releasing their final album SoniCrime TheRapy in 2001 and playing their final show in 2002. They've continued to be influential and grow their cult following since then, and now the band has announced a reunion for 2016. They're playing the Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands (April 14-17), which will be their first show outside of Japan ever. Curator Lee Dorrian talks about the booking, via Roadburn's site:
Over the years I've been fortunate enough to have been involved in some pretty amazing activities. This achievement is fairly high up there, in terms of things that have excited me the most. When I got asked to curate Roadburn 2016, I obviously drew up a list of favourite bands and started a process of elimination. I tried Rudimentary Peni but, alas, it was not to be. Then I thought about G.I.S.M..... I thought it was an extremely long shot for many reasons. Mainly because I knew that they had never performed outside of Japan but also, they hadn't even performed a show in Japan for over a decade.

Back in '93 whilst in Tokyo with Cathedral, G.I.S.M. vocalist Sakevi came to the show and invited me and some others back to his apartment the next day, where we all hung out, got stoned and watched human dissection videos (!) amongst other things. It's a night I will never forget. It's hard to under-estimate the influence that G.I.S.M. has had on extreme music, particularly hardcore punk over the years. I would say that alongside Discharge, they are probably the most influential in the raw and dirty world of metallic-edged, proper, noisy, hardcore.

Anyway, via mutual friends, I managed to track Sakevi down again and put forward a serious offer for G.I.S.M. to come over and perform at Rituals For The Blind Dead. After a couple of mails backwards and forwards, he agreed to come and play. I still can't quite believe that this is actually happening but the flights are booked and they are getting ready to come and boot you so brutally fucking hard in the ass!!!

The rest of the Roadburn lineup includes Neurosis, Paradise Lost, With The Dead, Misþyrming, Amenra, Abysmal Grief, Tau Cross, Pentagram and more. Tickets are on sale.
