Weekend Warrior, January 27 - 29

Lately, a general gloomy atmosphere has hovered overhead. However, amid these dreary conditions, an unexpected return has taken shape. Pet Milk is back (marking the group's first time on stage since 2013) with a show this Saturday at Everybody Hits. Not only will the band be exploring the sweet sincerity, searing space, and downhill assertions interconnecting twee, shoegazing, and punk into one, but they’ll also be doing so with a pairing of lead vocalists in Adriane Dalton and Sarah Schimeneck for the first time. Before heading into the studio with Jeff Zeigler next month to work on a full-length album, Callowhill will be bringing their rhythmically heavy thrust, which is complemented by jagged riffs and lush melodies. The quartet bridges the gap between the return of one band and the maiden voyage of another in Green Wolf, which is made up of Josh Agran (Paint It Black, Cassavetes), Deven Craige (Little Big League), and Joe Godino (The Menzingers). - Michael Colavita

The Misters bring optimistic folk-pop to Pianos on 02.21

Released in July of 2016, The Misters' single “Off My Mind (In the Summertime),” with its upbeat tempo and catchy, carefree melodies, is a stranger to NYC's January, notwithstanding the fact that this year it's been remarkably mild... With a well-mannered voice that exudes precocious wisdom, lead singer Michael Nitting (pictured) recites "...cause this cold keeps pouring down, but I won't let it bring me down" - a good reminder to all of us to keep on plowing through life, notwithstanding the bothersome events we can't control related to weather (or... politics). The Misters play live on February 21st at Pianos. - Jocelyn Huggler

Joel Gion Release New Single - Tomorrow

San Francisco based musician, Joel Gion has released a new single entitled, Tomorrow. This new neo psych pop track is a great new addition to his music catalog and rock and roll lineage. We love this song's rebellious and super cool attitude where Joel sings:

"Don't need a high place in a lowdown world
I'll keep moving on
Where I can be myself and here's something else
I'm doing nothing wrong
Seems everything is brought to extremes
Just to keep people runnin around..."

Tomorrow was written by Gion where he performed vocal, rhythm guitars, maracas and tambourine. The was produced and mixed by Collin Hegna at Revolver Studios in Portland, OR. Hegna also played bass on this track. Paul Dillon played guitars and Brian Gardner performed on drums.

It’s always a pleasure to hear new music from a San Francisco icon! Take a listen and support independent artists!

New Music Video: "Seven Days" - The Dove & The Wolf and Sign to Fat Possum

We had already guessed that The Dove & The Wolf had been signed to a record label when we first discovered that their 2016 EP I Don't Know What To Feel had been taken down from their Bandcamp page this past fall. The duo of Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat just premiered a new music video for the single, "Seven Days," yesterday via NPR, and they also shared that I Don't Know What To Feel will be reissued on March 24 by Fat Possum with two additional tracks. Congrats, ladies! (Photo by CJ Harvey)
