Deafheaven & DIIV

San Francisco’s Deafheaven will ride into town this Tuesday on a squall of feedback. The band whose music draws comparisons to black metal, shoegaze and post-rock – yet somehow manages to sound distinct from all three – is touring behind a new album that may rank as its most ambitious yet. Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, named for a line in a Graham Greene novel, sounds at once intimate and bulldozing. In the course of a single song, the band can sway between stark piano-laced balladry and Dinosaur Jr.-ish hooks before exploding into life-is-pain shrieks over a hellstorm of metallic guitar. While that idiosyncratic approach may leave some listeners scratching their heads, it’s won Deafheaven over to a legion of critics and regularly landed it on magazines’ best-of-the-year lists. It’s also easy to understand how the full impact of the group’s shifting dynamics may be best appreciated live. Brooklyn’s DIIV, another outfit apt to mix shoegaze with more bruising sounds, will open.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
