The wave of young Australian indie bands continues to roll through the streets of San Francisco, and the most recent surge left a packed house at the Mezzanine swimming in good vibes. RÜFÜS DU SOL went on just after midnight last Saturday and quickly showed us why they’ve been a familiar name atop the ARIA Charts the last Read More

We have been following local indie pop rock act The Tropics since spring, so we were excited to hear about the release of debut EP Wind House. With Wind House the five piece band is finally releasing more of the songs we saw live in July, which led to us calling them one of SF’s most promising young pop acts.

Although Read More

Last night, The Fillmore hosted two fantastic sets from Lake Street Dive and Ages and Ages. We have been excited for this show for several weeks, but I have to admit that as a huge San Francisco Giants fan I was initially not happy to leave a big playoff game and head to the Fillmore. Luckily what I found there Read More
