Gonerfest Daily: Reatards Reunion/San Francisco Invasion

Posted By on Thu, Sep 24, 2009 at 10:33 AM

Gonerfest 6, the annual garage/punk festival put on by the Cooper-Young-based record store/label kicks off today, first with "opening ceremonies" at the Goner store at 5:30 p.m., then with a full slate of bands at the Hi-Tone Cafe tonight starting at 8 p.m.

The Reatards headline tonight, with rising star Jay Reatard in the original lineup of his infamous teen band. But there are also a couple of the strong contingent of Bay Area bands on the bill. Here's a taste:

The Fresh and Onlys open tonight's Hi-Tone bill at 9 p.m. Here they are in a semi-controlled environment:

Fellow San Franciscan Ty Segall, a Goner label artists, plays at midnight, just before the Reatards. Here's the video for his song "Cents":
