Oakland’s own Tumbleweed Wanderers play their first hometown headlining show in over three years on Friday, April 8th. Tumbleweed Wanderers, who released one of the best Bay Area albums of 2015 in June, have managed to sidestep the Oakland spotlight as of late. They’ve opened up for big names like Jackie Greene and Greensky Bluegrass but consistently avoided the headlining slot in the East Bay....

After a particularly smashing weekend of local music Halloween madness, I was excited to have an evening of dastardly decompression at Brick and Mortar Music Hall with Hey Rosetta.

Catch the Bay Area’s own Waterstrider tonight at Leo’s in Oakland as they fill your ears, eyes, and esophagus with sweet shaky grooves. I really can’t speak highly enough of Waterstrider’s debut album Nowhere Now; its textured and vibrant sounds jump around from song to song, with many moving parts including hypnotic drums, deeply textured synths, and the cruising-altitude vocals...

If you weren't already convinced, Lila Rose's music defies conventions. And as evidenced by Stefan's review of her fantastic album release party at The Independent, Rose puts on a hell of a live show.

Combining elements of bluegrass, soul, folk, and gospel, the Tumbleweed Wanderers travel from genre to genre like the twists and turns of Highway 1.

Con Brio’s Kiss The Sun is a vibrant, absurdly over-the-top, genuinely fun six-track whirlwind. Highlights include the sexy slow-jam R&B of “Never Be The Same”...
