Today's Local Music: Blood & Dust

The name of today’s local band is a bit confusing. It’s Blood & Dust. But in reality, it’s not really a band: Blood & Dust is a solo performer.  One fan describes this Oakland resident as “two parts heart and one part beard.” 

Blood & Dust is on the program with Megan Andrews next Monday, May 6th at the Acoustic Bistro presentation, which takes place at Osteria restaurant in San Francisco. Music begins about 8:00pm.

Today's Local Music: DeCadence

You know this song, but it’s not quite Lorde, is it? No, it’s DeCadence, the acappella student group from Cal-Berkeley.  

Actually, this is only the female component of the group. But you’ll be able to hear all the members of DeCadence this weekend, both Saturday and Sunday, when they’re having their spring show. That'll take place on campus in Wheeler Hall on Saturday, and Wurster Hall on Sunday. Both shows are at 7:30pm.

Today's Local Music: The Parmesans

This band, the one you’re hearing now? They’re called The Parmesans, from San Francisco. That might be a cheesy name, but their music is tasty. It’s a blend of contemporary folk, and alt-country, with some bluegrass for garnish.

Can a band be both “of the moment,” and also “timeless?”  It’s possible if the band is Misisipi Mike and The Midnight Gamblers, the six-piece band that you’re hearing now.  

Misisipi Mike and the Gamblers will be playing at Amnesia on Valencia Street in San Francisco this Thursday, starting about 9:00pm.
