And as another Tuesday is upon us, so is another episode of The Bay Bridged.  A few weeks ago, we sat down at Thee Parkside to chat with Finest Dearest, a great San Francisco indie rock band we first spolighted way back when on our June Monthly Local Mix.  While listening to the epic jams emanating from the jukebox overhead, we chatted with Carly, Christine, Josh and Steve about their upcoming 7″ release Off Sides and their then-upcoming, now-current tour of the Pacific Northwest.

In addition to the interview, we play “Making a Sound 1″ from Off Sides, the first part of a trilogy of songs that the band has written, as well as a demo version of the currently unreleased second part.  We’ve also got an ultra-stripped down unreleased version of “Idaho”, originally from the band’s excellent Pacemaker EP.

These guys are developing a great sound, mixing pop and rock elements with punk intensity, and they have a really fun live show too.  You can find out more about the band at their web site and their MySpace page (including their dates up north) and you can pick up the Pacemaker EP at Insound.

And don’t miss their 7″ release show in a few weeks:

Wednesday, November 1st
Cafe du Nord
9pm, with Love is Chemicals and Teri Falini

Thanks, as always, for listening.  Feel free to drop us a line with any comments, feedback or suggestions.  Check back next week for an announcement of another cool development in our universe!
