The Stone Foxes Release New Album February 12th, Rock SXSW March 15th

Like contemporaries The Black Keys, The Steepwater Band, and The Black Angels, SF’s The Stone Foxes summon the days of hard-driven blues-rock.

Their full-length album Small Fires, set to release February 12th, is suffused with fuzzy guitar riffs, heavy, seductive vocals and dark, simple choruses. Their single “Everybody Knows” alludes to Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart,” weaving a sinister theme into a hard-hitting, disconsolate song. Small Fires delivers as pure a dose of rock as can be found today—gritty, spacious, and to-the-point.

Check them out at Amoeba Records on the 12th or in Oakland at the New Parish Music Hall on the 13th. - Tina Aita

We didn't get into a hotel until 4am. Not because of Rock and Roll reasons, we just didn't make reservations and every hotel around the area was booked. Sunday at the B.O.M.B fest was WAY more happenin' than Saturday, not talent-wise, there were just a lot more people there. The two best local acts we saw on Sunday were back-to-back: Cosmic Dust Bunnies followed by The Backyard Commitee. The Cosimic Dust Bunnies live up to their name. Spacey and other-worldly with a gentle jam-band-esque demenor. The Backyard Commitee (New Haven, CT) is more roots heavy rock with a blues attitude. They were widly buzzed about. Here's some shots of The Backyard Commitee.

B.O.M.B Fest 2011 re-cap (Saturday May 28th)

The atmostphere at the BOMB festival was probably one of the more calmer but still high-energy, less-douchebaggy ones (more love, less violence) that I've experienced in a festival atmosphere. Covering two days at the Comcast Center in Hartford, the BOMB festival featured a great varitey of acts from Weezer, to Snoop Dogg to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

One of the great things about the BOMB festival were the featured local acts. I have a suspicion that the venue sold much less tickets then it was counting on. Which is a shame, and this is all on assumption, but they did a really good job collecting and promoting acts regional and national. I was reluctant to go to The Comcast Center. I don't really like the corporate festivals. They seem to be doused in product placement, etc. This is the first time The Comcast Center has hosted a non-profit event -- all the proceeds went to The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp and Connecticut Children's Hospital.

We got there a little late on Saturday, around 4pm, there weren't many people there, but the bands were still giving their all.

The first band that really caught our ears was Forget Paris out of Derby, Connecticut who won the crowd with their feirce power-pop melodies. We got a chance to hang out with them backstage, share some mini-Budweisers and chat it up.
