"Blue Cheer was a San Francisco-based rock group of the late 1960s and early 1970s, who helped to pioneer heavy metal music.....They finished recording an album in Virginia in Winter 2005..." [Wikipedia]

Blue Cheer is touring this summer. They'll hit Maxwell's in Jersey, Northsix in Brooklyn, and CBGB in Manhattan. On June 25th they're playing the VICE Intonation Music Festival of all places. That puts them on a bill with Annie, Bloc Party, Boredoms, Ghostface, Jon Brion, Jose Gonzalez, Lady Sovereign, The Streets, The Sword, and more. When they're all hanging out backstage, Blue Cheer can brag that Pitchfork likes them best.
