Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's at The Elbo Room (4.5) ft. Half Stack, The Band Ice Cream, and The Younger Lovers

The Deli SF is excited to announce that from the same people that brought you the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase, comes Throwin’ Bo’s—a new local showcase at the Elbo Room, hosted on the first Thursday of every month. For everyone who feels like they hang out at the same bar and see the same people every day, this is the event for you.

The first installment is approaching quickly on April 5th, featuring the psych-influenced, jangle-folk of Oakland rockers Half Stack, the fast-paced alt-rock of San Francisco-based The Band Ice Cream, and a headlining performance by none other than Oakland mainstay The Younger Lovers (streaming below). When we say the lineup is stacked, we aren’t kidding around.

This event is 21+ and will cost $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Anyone interested can RSVP on Facebook. - Lilly Milman





The Younger Lovers Quaaludes Bad Daddies and Yi Play the Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT

If one thing's for sure, we at the Deli Magazine San Francisco can't get enough of Quaaludes and The Younger Lovers. Quaaludes played our first Deli sponsored event of the season, so we were thrilled when we heard that The Younger Lovers, Quaaludes, Bad Daddies and Yi would be playing a show at the Hemlock Tavern tonight.

Yi is an Oakland based band that plays jagged-sounding punk. Recently, they released a track from their upcoming album, Crying called "Going Dumb." It has the perfect amount of fuzz and noise. Bad Daddies is an East Bay band that plays loud and fast punk. Expect a new 7-inch from the band on Negative Fun Records coming in June! And next is Quaaludes - this girl band plays a mixture of riot grrrl, no wave and grunge and are known for putting on a raucous show! And last but not least are The Younger Lovers, an Oakland based band that features Gravy Train!!! alum Brontez Purnell. Playing a form of fast and snotty lo-fi, be sure not to miss out on this show! -Erin Dage





The Younger Lovers Play The Knockout with Half Blast and No Bone TONIGHT

Tonight, the Oakland based pop-centric band, The Younger Lovers will be joining Half Blast and No Bone for a night of gritty punk bliss at The Knockout in San Francisco.

No Bone, a riot grrrl band from San Francisco will open the show. This band draws influence from the great riot grrrl bands of yore such as Bratmobile, Bikini Kill and Babes In Toyland. Be sure to catch them at next month's Deli Magazine SF Sponsored event with Midnite Snaxxx, The Shanghais, Quaaludes and Bestfriend Grrlfriend on March 8th!

The new San Francisco punk band, Half Blast will also be performing as they value power chords, but posess a pop edge. The band's calling card is that the members are all grizzled veterans of the Bay Area music scene, having played in bands such as Ex-Boyfriends, Muñecas, Lucy Stoners, Zbörnak, Beard Summit, Cypher in the Snow, The Near Dark, Crowns on 45, Pinky Swear and Frozen Chicken Patties.

And headlining is The Younger Lovers. This awesome band recently made waves with their latest album, Sugar In My Pocket, which is out now on Southpaw Records. Younger Lovers seeks to combine poetic, Television Personalities-style banter with '60s pop flair. Both styles merge to form a lo-fi style that is unique and totally recognizable. - Erin Dage

The Younger Lovers Release Sugar in My Pocket + Play The Night Light in Oakland TONIGHT

The super talented bubblegum pop group, The Younger Lovers, has recently released its latest album, Sugar in My Pocket on Southpaw Records. As a project of Oakland garage rock stalwart, Brontez Purnell, the band mixes lo-fi vintage style riffs with '60s pop flair. The album is short and sweet, cramming in 12 songs in just over 20 minutes.The Younger Lovers use vocals that blur the line between poetry and banter, similar to Television Personalities with simplistic instrumentals to support this experimental vocal vibe. They have certainly polished their sound to near perfection within their last three albums. We're very into this new release!

Sugar in My Pocket covers themes of love, heartbreak and existential crisis all in a short period of time. Some tracks that stand out are: Hey Now, The Man From Orange, the cleverly titled I Can’t (Kim) Deal With It and the last song on the album, My Tears Are Wasted (So Am I). Even as some of the song's subject matter can appear bleak, Purnell maintains his popcentric composure throughout it all.

The Younger Lovers play TONIGHT at the Night Light in Oakland with Mattress, Dubais and Gray Lawns. -Erin Dage
