The Bands I love are blowing up.
I started listening to of Montreal in 2000. I thought they were a pretty big deal then and I still consider them to be one of my more favorite bands today! Thus when I discovered that BATTLEHOOCH was playing a show with them … I knew I had to be there. My BATTLEHOOCH friends were the icing on an already good cake, and I wasn’t about to miss my piece! It’s an amazing feeling when a young band filled with your friends is suddenly playing with a huge world famous bands. It’s like your little boys are growing up.
Maybe you’ve noticed this … but I feel like a lot of the bands I started falling in 2009 have recently come in to their own. Suddenly the bands that I used to see on a monthly basis at some small venue in The Bay are touring places farther & farther from home. In addition many of them are opening for a huge acts instead of headlining for smaller acts. It’s a super interesting food chain … you’re the biggest animal in your city … then you become the smallest beast in a large world circuit.
It’s an exciting time in the San Francisco music scene. Something big is about to happen… I can feel it.
Oh yeah … go see BATTLEHOOCH’S next show … they’re crazy!!!
