Today's Local Music: The Family Crest

The Family Crest is a San Francisco group considers itself “an orchestral indie collective” rather than a band. They’re primarily a six-piece group, but over 250 ‘Extended Family Members’ have participated in their recordings, live performances, and other media and art projects -- so you’re never sure how many people you’ll see on stage.

Today's Local Music: Tycho


Today we are featuring the San Francisco techno-acoustic performer known as Tycho

He doesn’t just twiddle knobs on a computer keyboard at his shows. Real guitars and drums are also part of the sound. And aside from music, Tycho – whose real name is Scott Hansen – is also a graphic designer. He creates abstract patterns and designs to accompany his ambient songs, which he calls “artifacts from the future.”

What’s the point of seeing a band live? You want them to be lively, of course. And Le Panique, the band we’re featuring today, knows that. This group, from San Francisco, thinks that if the audience sees the band having fun, it will translate to them. You can check out that translation on Wednesday May 23, when they play Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland.

The Creak

Oh, banjo music! Some people love it, others can’t stand it.

If you’re in the first group, you’ll want to know about the San Francisco band called The Creak.

They don’t remember who thought of the name, but they like it because it brings to mind “the sound of something old and worn-in and comfortable.”

They have a show scheduled for Friday (05.18) in San Francisco at The Lost Church on Capp Street, starting about 9pm.
