YLOS: While We Are Gone

Alright - as excited as I am about going up to North Lake Tahoe this weekend for the Wanderlust Festival (I mean Moby, Brazilian Girls, the beds at the Resort at Squaw Creek) - I'm a little bummed about missing some of these great shows/events that are going on this weekend here in town.

And here's why:

This trio from Michigan have recently performed for Daytrotter and their track "Boat" has also been featured on Pitchfork's Forkcast.

Expect banjos, plastic toys, cellos, violins, glockenspiels, and vibraphones.

genre: folk, indie, slow-coustic

- (Sac)

This local band is busy busy busy getting ready for their CD release party on August 29th at Harlows.

I saw them open for John Vanderslice and Sea of Bees recently at the Townhouse Lounge and was thoroughly impressed.

Expect: a song about the lead singer's cat, a trombone-playing pianist, and perhaps a cello and violin section.

genre: indie, folk

Friday July 30th @ 9PM
