Bay Area bike tour is a “summer camp on wheels”

I love my classic Nishiki road bike. I know, it’s kind of a Bay Area hipster cliché, but what can I say? I enjoy riding and I try to bike as much as I can – to work, for fun, whatever. So I was excited to hear about the new 10-day, 200-mile bike tour that the bands Rupa and the April Fishes and Shake Your Peace have planned.

Local Music - Future Twins

The song you’re hearing is the very-San Francisco band called Future Twin. The band started as a trio but is now a five-piece group … when they all show up. They have a show planned Saturday (04.14) at El Rio in San Francisco. They’ll probably include songs from their debut EP cassette, which came out in January. Music starts around 9pm. [Yes, they released a CASSETTE~!]

Today we're featuring a local band called Shady Maples. They’re a northern-southern band, actually; the singing guitarist lives in the Bay Area and the lap steel player resides in San Diego. Their talents will converge on Sunday, April 15th, when they’ll have a free show at Rasputin Records in Berkeley, starting about 2 pm.

The Rogers

The music you’re hearing is by The Rogers. The members all met at a music instruction store in Oakland’s Laurel neighborhood. They have quite a complicated list of ingredients to their sound, which is most easily described as “Americana.” They’re one of five bands on the bill this Thursday at The Stork Club in Oakland. Music starts about 9pm.

Judith Linsenberg

Looking for something civilized to do on April Fool’s Day? Then consider attending a late afternoon Baroque music concert by Judith Linsenberg. Audiences throughout the United States and Europe have heard Lisenberg play her recorder, including solo appearances at the Hollywood Bowl and Lincoln Center. You’ll be able to hear her at the Northbrae Community Church in Berkeley this Sunday.
