San Francisco math rock legends A MINOR FOREST have reunited for their first tour in 15 years and we’re lucky enough to be welcoming them back to the Empty Bottle stage on Friday, May 2nd. The show is part of CIMMfest and only costs $12. Tickets are available here. Our owner, Bruce Finkelman, was a big fan and has some words about the band.
A Minor Forest was a favorite of mine.
They played really intricate instrumentals that you could shake your head to.
Erik had long fingernails.
Andee played drums backwards.
The cover of one of their albums had a drawing of people having sex.
I think they used to travel in a van that used cooking oil as fuel.
They are returning to the Empty Bottle on Friday, May 2nd
I am really looking forward to seeing the again.
You should come and see them.

Last week, Impose premiered a live video of AMF playing “So Jesus Was At The Last Supper” at San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill this past November. The video/song is over 18 minutes long. There’s an interview, too.
Here are some old shots of A MINOR FOREST playing at Empty Bottle in 1998 – we found them in a box of old photos.
This is the video from their show at Bottom of the Hill back in November 2013:
