Comets on Fire, The Double

Bay Area psych-rock freakazoids Comets on Fire do a pretty good job of blowing up your skirt on record. Blue Cathedral, their 2004 Sub Pop release, careens from '60s folk strumming to full-blown noise-core sine waving more quickly than you can pack a bowl of, well, whatever. But the band really ignites onstage; expect to leave Hailey's with less hearing than you arrived with. Show up early for openers The Double; the New York quartet, which signed to indie stronghold Matador Records earlier this year, plays woozy guitar-pop like a gang of beach bums with serious cases of sunstroke.
