Does this sound like anyone you’ve heard before? Curt Yagi is often compared to others, but no less an authority. Rock journalist Ben Fong-Torres says he sounds like… Curt Yagi. And that’s just fine.

Curt Yagi and The People Standing Behind Me will be sounding like themselves on Wednesday (01.09) at the Brick & Mortar Music Hall in San Francisco.

Music starts at 8pm.

Today's Local Music: Field Trips

There’s not much we can tell you about the band called Field Trips, other than that they're an Oakland band. Field Trips claim to be ”running free and sharing their unhinged grooves” throughout the Bay Area. If this sounds appealing, you’ll want to show up at the New Parish in Oakland tomorrow night (January 03), where they’ll be playing. Doors open at 8pm, and music starts about 9pm.

Today's Local Music: Guitar Pull

The Lady Crooners will be performing at the upcoming Guitar Pull

Now here’s something you don’t hear every day – a Guitar Pull. The term seems to come from the Great Depression when a group would get together to play songs. Often only one player would have a guitar, so they’d “pull” it from each other to have a turn.

Today’s Local Music: The Rogers

If your band members were named Walter, Brent, Roland, and Rafael, what would you call the band?  Why, The Rogers, of course! Although they’ve only been playing together in public for about a year, The Rogers already have an album, which was released this past summer.  You can hear them live on December 17, when they play The Rocket Room, an intimate space inside of the famous Fillmore, in San Francisco.
