It’s that time of the month again. The first Wednesday of the month where you get a free preview into a line up of the bands of tomorrow. And May is a good month. Not only is it a great line up of artists – featuring San Francisco’s James & Evander, Mister Loveless and LA-based group, The Fling – but it’s also my birthday. So if you don’t come for the music, come for that.
For free entrance, RSVP here. Or pay $5 at the door.
Carry that Giants love forward to The Rumble San Francisco tonight at Milk Bar featuring San Francisco’s Burnt Ones headlining. The garage rock trio (with evident T.Rex influences) are recent transplants to our fair city by way of Indianapolis and are signed to music tastemaker My Old Kentucky Blog’s label Roaring Colonel. The group was just featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered yesterday to boot. Supporting them are Austin-based rockers Ume and San Francisco psych rock/shoegazers, LSD & The Search for God…because lord knows you’re going to need a lot of that to find Him. Entrance is free, per usual, with an RSVP at SonicLiving. And Trumer Pils specials will be flowing.
The monthly FutureSounds Rumble Tour that rolls through town every month has built a reputation of breaking hot new artists (think Band of Skulls). This October, The Rumble will trump all of that with a new venue location, Cafe du Nord, and a new concept – indie film!
As usual, the monthly Rumble tour is set to bring a stellar line up upcoming artists through San Francisco tonight Wednesday, October 6, featuring Austin, TX-based acts Sunset, The White White Lights, and Dana Falconberry. What’s new is that preceding the showcase you’ll get to see a sneak preview of the indie film, Echotone – a documentary film about the music culture of Austin, Texas that features the very bands in this month’s showcase line up. Documentary filmmaker, Nathan Christ, followed a range of indie rock bands over a two year period chronicling the indie subculture – from the bands to the venues and promoters to the city governments themselves. Wrap it all up and put a bow on it, I can’t think of a better night of audio/visual entertainment. Don’t miss it!
It’s an electro pop extravaganza this Wednesday night, February 3, at San Francisco’s Rumble featuring Jaguar Love and local acts My First Earthquake and Butterfly Bones. This month the best free music night in town gets an upgrade from Harlot to Cafe du Nord. Legitimacy at last! RSVP at SonicLiving to get in free.
Apteka, the Chicago-based 4 piece is heading to San Francisco to bring their psych rock, shoegaze sound to The Rumble on June 3 at Harlot. RSVP for the event here then download a free copy of their EP on their MySpace page.
