POW! Massanger Los Craters The Electric Magpie Play Hemlock Tavern - 2/1

Local promoter Shirley Sparks Presents has put together an excellent lineup of music featuring, POW!, Massanger, Los Craters and The Electric Magpie for this Saturday at The Hemlock Tavern. Since releasing Hi-Tech Boom on Castleface Records, POW!’s synth-driven, fuzzed-out warning to San Francisco has been rapidly gaining attention after Thee Oh See’s Jonathan Dwyer described it as a “punk eulogy to our fair city.” The minimalist post-punk trio is sure to live up to the hype and put on a killer show. SoCal garage dwellers Massenger and Los Craters will bring their freaky surf rock sounds to the party while SF’s The Electric Magpie look to obliterate your face with their feedback-laden raga rock.

So stop by The Hemlock Tavern, SF’s most intimate rock club, to check out some of the best emerging indie bands on the west coast! - Ethan Varian


The Electric Magpie The Spiral Electric and The Blank Tapes Play The Chapel TONIGHT

Come celebrate the holidaze with resident Bay Area psychedelic rockers, The Electric Magpie and The Spiral Electric tonight at The Chapel! They'll be opening for the dreamy beach-rock trio, The Black Tapes. Having evolved to a lineup of bass, primitive drums and guitar, this new instrumentation gives front man and founding member Matt Adams a new stripped down sound to explore. Songs like “Coast to Coast” and “Holly Roller” from this year’s release, Vacation benefits from this new approach, allowing the group’s endearing vocal harmonies to really shine.  

Be sure to stop by The Chapel to check out this awesome line up tonight. -Ethan Varian

Ash Reiter The Visibles and Psychic Jiu Jitsu Play Eagle Tavern TONIGHT

Eagle Tavern, a small bar located in SoMa, will be hosting its weekly show series, Thursday Nite Live! TONIGHT. This week's bill includes three acts that are shaking up the Bay Area music scene in very different, but eminent ways. Ash Reiter, a classic bubblegum pop music incarnate, plays San Francisco flower pop rock with a twist. Their music will inevitably get you swaying to the melody, humming to the choruses and bobbing your head to the beat. The Visibles bring together a hint of folk with a blend of psych-rock, which is a great combination that is not too intense and not too pop sounding. The Electric Magpie, originating from the North Bay, has come to be quintessential to the Bay Area psych-rock music scene since the release of their successful single, “What’s For Tea?,” and signing to Lolipop Records. Their sound is trippy and exudes 60s instrumentation, delayed and reverbed vocals and a nice addition of punk influences on top of it all. Psychic Jiu Jitsu brings back jam-like psych rock instrumentation that goes beyond cliché jam bands. A mix of distorted guitars, eerie and heavily reverbed vocals and crashing cymbals create a vicious, mind-charging atmosphere.

Be sure to catch these bands doing their thing tonight! -Victor Casillas Valle
