Not to be confused with the Drake-endorsed avant-r&b act with which they almost share a name, San Francisco's Weekend hit town for two shows just ahead of a new EP that clears away some of the noise-goth fuzz from the band's buzzy 2010 debut, Sports. ("Hazel," the EP's winsome Internet single, conjures up welcome memories of Velocity Girl in their "My Forgotten Favorite" days.)
