Today's Local Music: Disappearing People

The music you’re hearing now is by Oakland’s Disappearing People. One reviewer says,  “Their song forms are long and seem to offer release through repeated figures, over an unwavering drum groove. This ties them in many ways to the 20th Century minimalist composers.”  Or, you could just call it shoe-gaze.

Either way, The Disappearing People will be at Thee Parkside in San Francisco on Thursday, March 20th. Music begins about 9:00pm.
