Dead Kennedys

When: Sat., Dec. 12, 7 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 13, 3 p.m. 2015

Songwriting weirdo Jello Biafra has been out of the picture since the band’s 2001 revival, but Dead Kennedys still pack enough fury and nostalgia to sell out a Saturday night Korova gig and book an encore set the next day. A defining San Francisco hardcore outfit, Dead Kennedys tear through caterwauling guitar and a seething deadpan on staples like “Holiday in Cambodia” and “Kill the Poor.” Celebrating The Korova’s sixth anniversary, the venue couldn’t have picked a more perfect house band for the bash. Happy birthday, you droogs. With Sniper 66, Ironhead Division, FatMD, Bent Gents.

Price: $20-$25
