On a warm Saturday night during Pride weekend, the Great American Music Hall bustled with excitement. Not only were three amazing Bay Area bands about to share one of the most beautiful stages in San Francisco, but the Supreme Court had declared same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states just in time for LGBT Pride...

If you haven’t heard of Dangermaker by now, then you haven’t been reading San Francisco blogs, and probably haven’t been clued into what Balanced Breakfast is … yet! Light the Dark I – EP by DANGERMAKER (This isn’t a dig at you, mind you, more of an acknowledgment that I’ve written about them before. In...

I believe in live performance. I love seeing bands in person, up front and center stage to be able to get a sense of what people can do, and frankly, I’m looking for bands that can WOW me into wanting to listen to their recordings… Slackin’ Since The 80s EP by Couches This is always how...

I take for granted the fact that if you are reading this post, (either by way of I Heart SFBands, Sf Intercom, or social networking links) you are familiar with Bay Area Balanced Breakfast… …turns out that assumption might not be true.

Thompson as in inspiration (in the good Dr’s city mind you) you’ve grabbed my attention… … The Damn Fanatics, The Street Hearts, and WhaleSoundz @ Neck of the Woods (Richmond District,...

You know it’s going to be a great week when EVERY DAY there is an event that you should attend. Last week was an amazing week to be in the greater San Francisco area for music. Let’s start on Monday at Amoeba… There was a Cloud Nothings set that felt more like a living room...

If there’s one thing a performer needs to have, its a total understanding of timing. You need to know when to slow a set down, speed it up, and work the crowd, etc, etc… Timing is something I need to get better at when writing these reviews. (and forget excuses, sure I’m busy and have...

This is a review I’ve been looking forward to writing. I never know for sure what I’m going to get when I go see a band. Yeah, I can listen to the new single from a band, stream the album online and even enjoy the music on a CD (Yes I still listen to cd’s)…...

San Francisco music community, I love you but some times you bring me down… (ala James Murphy) When I was going to SHOWS back in lil ol’ Wyoming, it was a given that a SHOW meant going to see EVERYBODY playing that evening. Its basic D.I.Y etiquette really; that all bands playing on a bill...

Coming off a community meet upheld on Tuesday evening at The Chapel to discuss the dire situation of SF’s “dying” music scene… I felt there was a sense nobody believes the scene is dead. (how could it be when there was a filled up chapel for a community discussion) However, nobody is going to fix...
