The hard driving, trippy sounds you’re hearing now are by the Wooden Shjips. This song is from their new album, “Back to the Land.” Listeners to “Sound Opinions,” heard Sunday afternoons on KALW, know that it is a Top Ten Album of 2013, as featured on that program.
Wooden Shjips will be performing at The Chapel in their hometown of San Francisco on Thursday, January 23rd. Doors open at 8:00pm.
The band you’re hearing now is called Sweet Felony. No, they're not criminals – the name comes from a friend’s pit-bull.
This San Francisco duo is one of over half a dozen groups participating in the twelfth annual “Sleepless Nights: A Tribute to Gram Parsons & Cosmic American Music" taking place on Saturday, January 18th at The Great American Music Hall. The show starts at 9:00pm.
The toe-tapping style of music you’re hearing now is most often played in New Orleans. But this band, The Zydeco Flames, was formed right here in San Francisco, way back in 1990.
The Zydeco Flames are on the schedule this Saturday, January 18th at the venerable Ashkenaz Music & Dance Center on San Pablo in Berkeley. Doors open at 8:00pm, with a dance lesson at 8:30. The show begins at 9:00pm.
The song you’re hearing now is from the album, “Stand!” by Oakland legends Sly and the Family Stone. No, the band is not back together, but over 75 performers are going to play the songs from that album, live, as part of the locally produced Under Cover series.
