Goodnight, Texas

If you look up “Goodnight, Texas,” you’ll discover that it’s an unincorporated town with a population of less than twenty. You’ll also discover that it’s the name of a San Francisco band, which you’re hearing now. 

Goodnight, Texas – the band, not the town – will be playing tomorrow, August 8th at Café du Nord in San Francisco. Doors open at 8:00pm.

Today's Local Music: Midi Matilda

The Bay Area indie-pop duo you’re hearing now is called Midi Matilda. They haven’t taken the usual approach of playing live to reach an audience – they prefer making videos. And it works: now their live shows regularly sell out. 

Midi Matilda is one of scores of bands performing in Golden Gate Park this weekend as part of this year’s Outside Lands Festival. Look for them on Friday, August 9th around 7:00pm.

Hear Here producer Audrey Dilling asked Munghia how he first learned to play guitar.
