This event is 21 and over

The group formed in 1992, and quickly found wide exposure, releasing a vinyl EP in 1993 and touring with acts such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Chore, Jawbox, Season to Risk, The Jesus Lizard, and Girls Against Boys. The group released their first LP, Splay (recorded at Steve Albini's Chicago studio) in 1996, and a second album, Lula Divinia the next year. Sub Pop took notice, and released a 7" single of the group's songs "Sleep it Off" and "Half Empty". Following this the band toured with Hum and Swervedriver in 1998. A third full-length, Starless, was released on a label run by members of The Descendents, Owned and Operated, in 2000. A fourth LP, The Egg, would follow before the group broke up in 2002. This was recorded and produced at Matt Talbot's recording studio.
Weight of the Sun
"Every turn of Commons' emotive tide is a heavy-handed crescendo that finds the little pockets where you've stored your musical snobbery, and then breaks it apart to widen your horizons." - Osprey

"Weight of the Sun sound pretty much exactly like Jupiter-era Cave In. And when I say that, I mean it as an absolute compliment. Not many bands combine pop hooks with metal's heaviness, so it's nice to see that there's one that does right in our own backyard." - San Diego CityBeat

"This kinda sounds like when Cave In stopped being a hardcore band and made that weirdo space rock record." - Noisey/Vice
