John Murry Plays Two Nights at Amnesia

Influential folk musician, John Murry will be playing Amnesia on September 14th and September 21st. This Mississippi transplant is now residing in Oakland and we're enthusiastic about him bringing his eerie presence and music that sits like a wax coating on your psyche to the Bay Area.

His music resonates and encapsulates musical resemblances to Townes Van Zandt, Pete Yorn and Tom Petty, but Murry's music a bit more modern and experimental, bringing his dark folk lyrics animation and color.

Make sure you check out his two performances at Amnesia. His music has been featured on the popular television show, Sons of Anarchy...but that's not why you should see him live. Take a listen to his recordings and you'll be convinced. -je

​Lords of Sealand Release New Album + Play Benefit Show - 9/20

​San Francisco based avant indie rock band Lords of Sealand are releasing a new album entitled, Found Fiction. You can catch their live performance and album release celebration at El Rio on September 20th.

Their new single, Never Disappoint exudes elements of progressive and reggae musical styles. Lords of Sealand's sound is very unique and the music sucks you in by grabbing your ears with their sensual instrumentation and haunting lyrics and vocal performances.

The bill for their album release show will include Hoxton Mob and Van Damnit, while doubling as a benefit event for Home Away from Homelessness, a non-profit that provides after school care for children of homeless families. Do it for the kids! Don't miss this show. Bands who help people are cool.

Cool Ghouls Gear Up to Release New Album + Drop New Single

The incredibly popular San Francisco based band, Cool Ghouls is gearing up to release their new album, A Swirling Fire Burning Through The Rye which is due out on November 11th on Empty Cellar Records.

You have the opportunity to hear a new single from the album below. The quintessential CG sound resonates through their new track, The Mile, which is catchy but sounds a bit more mature than their earlier work. Although they still grasp tones and styles from The Beatles, there is a bit more of a serious tone to the song that shows that the band has evolved, which hopefully invokes anticipation for their upcoming album. We are intrigued for sure.

Give The Mile a listen. It’s a great song.

Dinosaur Feathers return with a soul pop flavor - Shea Stadium on 09.20

Dinosaur Feathers first emerged from Brooklyn's sweaty DIY scene as an irrepressibly upbeat synthesis of indie rock & world music influences, replete with intricate soaring vocal harmonies. The group then charted a course from tropical leisure to nervy beach rock via substantial touring with acts like Built to Spill and Peter Bjorn & John. Most recently, master of ceremonies Greg Sullo committed to an extended stay in Oakland, where he found himself progressively drawn toward Motown soul & funky R&B - from Smokey to Chaka, Prince to Janet. His vocal performances on CONTROL clearly reflect an affinity for such material, supported by a catalog of disparate secondary influences, from Scott Walker to Drake.
