I Heart SF Bands
It’s becoming difficult to choose what show to attend here in Napa anymore. Didn’t used to be that way.

In fact, they did so the same day of their SOLD OUT NoisePop show at the Independent on Wednesday. After streaming the album on Itunes and Spotify the week earlier, I was stoked to finally hear...
