Today we're featuring the sounds of Oakland band Mr. Kind. Brian Bergeron, the leader of this group, is from Massachusetts, and he’s still amazed that you can go on tour, drive hundreds of miles, and still be in the same state! But before their California tour begins, the band is playing a special show tomorrow (November 1st) at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. Mr. Kind will be recreating Wilco’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” album, note for note.
In the 1989 Stephen King classic Pet Sematary, the Creed family’s cat, Church, gets hit by a car on the busy road in front of their new home. Rather than burying Church in the pet cemetery with the many other pets who lost their lives on the same road, Louis Creed decides to venture to the burial site just beyond. That’s when things start to get ugly.
What’s that you’re hearing? You might think it’s Depeche Mode or maybe Joy Division. But it’s actually the Oakland band Tokyo Raid. They’re the headliners on Saturday, November 3rd at the Stork Club in Oakland.
