Pick: Birthday Suits

February 22
Birthday Suits
Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $7, theslowdown.com

Minnesota-based duo plays a big, straightforward brand of garage rock that incorporates elements of punk-pop and noise rock that's hinged on steady snare-drum thwap and the melodic buzz of Hideo Takahashi's huge guitar riffs.

Raashan Ahmad February 13

            Oakland native Raashan Ahmad is perhaps the most congenial artist to ever walk the face of this earth.
