I can hear the excuses already…I just got back home…holiday weekend…I’m tired. Wah wah wah. I’m having none of it. I say, what better excuse to keep the good times going than to run on over to Milk Bar July 6 for some all girl band action with Oakland’s surf pop princesses, The Hot Toddies. Not too shabby, right? Add to that the soulful sounds of Luke Rathborne and the psych pop sounds of San Francisco’s White Cloud, and you have yourself an eclectic evening of music for cheap or for free. For free if you RSVP on the Eventbrite page here. For cheap if you show up at the door – $5. It all goes down at 9PM.
Judging by the turnout last month, The Rumble is shaping up to bigger and better this year. This month in SF features our very own Grand Lake, whom I saw recently and had forgotten how good these guys are. Be sure to check them out. Supporting them are Belgium’s The Tellers and another local act, The Spyrals.
Milk Bar/ Doors at 8:00 / Show 9:30 Ages 21+ / Free with RSVP / $5 without
Rumspringa – “Queer Eyed Boy”
The Rumble SF is tonight at Cafe du Nord featuring Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, LA’s Rumspringa and San Fran’s Billy & Dolly. At this point I don’t think we’re in need of any more hyperbole about the monthly Rumbles. Why? Because it’s FutureSounds and they never let you down. Plus it’s free with an RSVP, for god’s sake. Just do it.
Once again the good folks at FutureSounds have lined up a great night of free music for this month’s The Rumble on Wednesday March 3 at Cafe du Nord, officially dubbed as the NoisePop hangover. Hangover indeed. But this month’s line up is well worth your attention, featuring two of my favorite local groups, Lilofee and Stripmall Architecture, as well as Athens-based shoegaze rockers Twin Tigers whose new album Gray Waves is getting lots of love. Deservedly so. Don’t mis it.
