Eight Gigs: King Woman
Fri., March 18, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10
This is a full night of indifference to Sunday service; stay out late and sleep through mass. San Francisco’s King Woman specializes in doom and gloom. The 2014 Doubt EP is both cinematic and funereal, the sort of apocalyptic dirge that fearlessly looks into the abyss. Representing the abyss looking back on Friday night will be the frenetic punk of locals So Stressed and heretic doomsayers Chrch, both of which are Sammies nominees: Chrch for Best Metal Band and So Stressed for Release of the Year. 1517 21st Street, www.facebook.com/KNGWMN.
