Your Fearless Leader is aptly named, as their leader Marcus Ghiasi is truly fearless: leading his 7 piece band into a headlining slot at The Rickshaw Stop. They have a genuinely unique sound in the Bay, combining an eclectic lineup of sax, trumpet, violin, keyboard, drums, guitar, and bass. It may sound like the lineup...

The band began their set with a mysterious musical fragment: something warm and reverberant that sounded all at once strange and familiar.

Last Friday was a packed night at the backroom at Starline Social Club in Oakland,CA. Van Goat really knows how to throw a party and who to invite. The backroom behind the bar had a great house show vibe with no designated performance area with the exception of a carpet. This really worked well with...

In a musical landscape over-saturated with glamour and ego, Eliot Sumner is an honest breath of fresh air. You may have heard of her famous parents (look it up, if you must) but Sumner’s talent is so undeniable that no connection made to these two is necessary; she is a force all her own. The...

This new radio-friendly rock-pop-anthem from The Y Axes will have you montaging by the first chorus. Where bubble gum singles celebrate a “shake it off” superficiality, lead singer Alexi Rose Belchere belts out a deeper more angsty dedication to loyalty with a contagious hook. No escapism here, but rather an appreciation for someone who makes you feel whole. Beautifully patterned guitar arrangements from Devin Nelson...

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....
