San Francisco natives “Weekend” took their lo-fi, noise pop sound to The New Parrish in Oakland last Wednesday night. The group shared the stage with fellow local Luis Vasquez; founder of the up and coming post-punk project, “Soft Moon.”

Weekend chose to only shine two lonely lights upon the stage that evening, resulting in a stark, almost noir like setting. Their simple, yet confounded sound echoed throughout the venue with their effective blend of dark and melodic songwriting. The photos in this piece are a reflection of this.

Their newest release Sports, which received high marks by Pitchfork and other notable critics, is available through iTunes and your local record shop.
