WOMYNFEST at The Rotunda March 6

Every time I hear the word "women", in my mind it translates into this loud, piercing yelp a la French Stewart as Harry in "3rd Rock from the Sun" (you thought I was going with Wolfmother, didn't you?). It also reminds me of Women's History Month, which is happening this month. It's not only essential to recognize, celebrate, and cherish the stories you can share, but to remember the women of yore who've helped paved the way  to/for our rights. So make some history tonight at Uni City's Rotunda for WOMYNFEST, presented by Vitamin D productions. Open to every junk type (ladyjunk, manjunk, pandajunk...whatev), this evening’s shindig will feature a breadth of sickeningly talented musicians, including Chrissy Tashian & Sara Green of the Dangerous Ponies, Victoria Spaeth and the Spaeth Cadets, Voices of Africa, Lexie Smith, Susan Rosetti of Stargazer Lily & Slo-mo fame, and Lauren Adams of Naughty, Naughty Nurses. The brains behind the presenter, Vitamin D (a.k.a. Denise), will play a set with fierce don't-fuck-with-us drummers Allison Krayer and Deb Cervone. Now go get an education in badass.

Kyle Nicolaides on Merrifield Records' Twins compilation

You’ve waited long enough -- now you can get your hands dirty with it. The jam packed Twins compilation, including Santa Barbara native Kyle Nicolaides, was released this month on Merrifield Records. The album contains his dirty ditty of a single “Howl”, a jam that captures the essence of old time rock n’ roll at its raunchiest. Nicolaides vocals carry a blues swagger reminiscent of Jack White (The Raconteurs), Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), and Matt Shultz (Cage the Elephant) over smoking guitar riffs.

You can stream the compilation and even download a few samle tracks including Nicolaides' "Howl", on Merrified Record's website.

Work Drugs have a new (old) track “Sunset Junction” that they just made available for free download here. You can check out the video that goes along with it below, but be careful because it’ll surely make you long for lazy, summer days on the Left Coast.
