Local Music

Fang 2014

Hardcore band Fang, which formed in Berkeley in 1980, plays THE punk venue 924 Gilman this Friday, June 19 at 7pm. Tickets are $14 at the door.

The music you’re hearing now is by Underwoman - also known as Carolyn B. Chen. Her melancholic songs, which draw from pop and classical influences, have been compared to merry-go-round music. They’ve also been described as “haunting.” 

Underwoman & the Believers will be performing at The Stork Club in her hometown of Oakland on Saturday (06.13). Music starts around 9:30pm, but don’t expect Carolyn until around 11pm. 

Now in its 11th year, DjangoFest Mill Valley brings the music and spirit of the great French/Belgian Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt, back to the Throckmorton Theatre this weekend. Festival Founder and Artistic Director Nick Lehr joins host Devon Strolovitch to talk about what's in store at this year's festival, and Oakland's own Jimmy Grant Ensemble returns to perform Gypsy swing and more live in the studio - this Wednesday 6/10 at 9:00 pm.

Today’s local music is by Janam from Oakland, a band that was formed in 2008. They say their music brings together the foothills of Appalachia with the foothills of the Balkans.  Janam has an outdoor concert planned for Saturday (06.06) at Wisteria Way in Oakland’s Rockridge neighborhood. Music begins at 3pm. 

This band is called The View from Bernal Hill, so you can guess that they’re from San Francisco Bernal Heights neighborhood.
