The Evie Ladin Band

The sounds you’re hearing are from The Evie Ladin Band, out of Oakland. You may know Evie Ladin as a major part of the Stairwell Sisters. But she also has this band, under her own name. They’ll be playing at a square dance on Friday (05.18) at the Niebyl Proctor Library in Oakland, starting about 8pm. And if you’re interested, there’s a workshop on clog-dancing beforehand, at 6:30pm.

Bay Area Beats: LoCura

The San Francisco band LoCura reflects the Bay's diverse mix of cultures, histories and people through music that surfs genres and shuns labels. Members of the band come from as far away as Spain, and as close as the Mission district. They blend flamenco, Cuban son, reggae, cumbia, ska and more to make their own border-crossing brand of revolutionary party music. With the release of their new album, Semilla Caminante, the band deepens this mixture of musical and political cultures.
