Eight Gigs: Hot Flash Heat Wave

Sat., Sept. 10, 8 p.m., Old Ironsides, $8

Hot Flash Heat Wave is what would happen if a young, tongue-in-cheek Weezer spent its nights in a garage and its days on the beach. Now based in San Francisco, the group returns to the valley this weekend. This four-man band of high-school buddies hit the scene in 2015 when its catchy surf-rock “Gutter Girl” single made waves in indie circles. Since releasing its debut album Neapolitan in September 2015 and a four-track vinyl Love Crimes this summer, Hot Flash Heat Wave continues its rise in the Bay Area music scene with laid-back glee. 1901 10th Street, https://hotflash
