DJ/producer extraordinaire Skrillex is setting up shop in the Bay Area.
The acclaimed electronic music artist, whose real name is Sonny John Moore, will perform six consecutive nights at six different local venues. His Bay Area residency kicks off at the Independent in San Francisco on Feb. 3 and continues at the Regency (Feb. 4), Mezzanine (Feb. 5), Warfield (Feb. 6), Fox Theater in Oakland (Feb. 7) and Bill Graham Civic (Feb. 8).
The Eagles are one of the biggest bands in rock history, having sold more than 120 million albums across the globe, earned a half-dozen Grammy Awards and notched five No. 1 singles in the U.S.
Most impressive, the Eagles first greatest hits compilation, which covers the years from 1971 to 1975, stands as the best-selling album of all time in the U.S., with nearly 30 million copies sold.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band brings its History of the Eagles Tour to SAP Center in San Jose on Jan. 29 and Jan. 31. Show time is 8 p.m. and tickets are $49-$189, www.ticketmaster.com.
Yuck was one of the must-see bands at the 2011 South by Southwest music festival in Texas.
Since then, however, the once-heavily hyped band has kind of fallen off the radar. That's what will happen when your charismatic original lead vocalist (in this case, Daniel Blumberg) leaves the band. Yet, this British indie-rock act still has plenty to offer and is worth seeing when it performs Jan. 29 at the Independent in San Francisco.
The big-buzz Bay Area band SHE'S open the 8 p.m. show. Tickets are $15, www.theindependentsf.com.
