Every so often, the insanity of the pandemic and the omicron variant yield thrillingly unexpected results.

In the Sweetwater Music Hall’s case, Ty Segall, a longtime pillar of the Bay Area’s garage rock scene, is set to perform with his Freedom Band on February 8, just on the heels of the COVID-driven cancellation of a five-night residency leading up to a celebratory New Year’s Eve show at the Chapel in San Francisco’s Mission District in late December.

Segall is best known for his prolific solo career during which he has released eleven studio albums, alongside various EPs, singles, and collaborative albums, including a 2012 release recorded with his live band billed as the Ty Segall Band and another from that same year with Tim Presley of White Fence. Segall is also a member of the bands Fuzz, Broken Bat, the CIA, and GØGGS, and is a former member of the Traditional Fools, Epsilons, Party Fowl, Sic Alps, and the Perverts.
