Ty Segall plays two shows at Empty Bottle Saturday

Garage rocker Ty Segall treated his fans to three albums last year. Last month, two early Segall albums were reissued, including the self-titled release from his surf-punk band Traditional Fools. The second reissue, Reverse Shark Attack, is Segall’s release with longtime bandmate Mikal Cronin. Segall has come a long way as an artist since those earlier recordings but I still enjoy listening to these raw tracks. If you’re a Segall completist, you’ll want to pick up the reissues.

Segall plays two sold-out shows at Empty Bottle Saturday night. Ex-Cult opens.

I Wear Black is the first song on Reverse Shark Attack. The video above  was shot at Permanent Records in Chicago.

“Where we surf, there’s always waves.” This Traditional Fools video gives you a good idea what the band sounded like. The song, Street Surfin’, is not on the recently reissued album.
