Twin Steps

The day has come. Oakland is (kind of) taking over San Francisco. On April 9, a mostly Oakland-comprised lineup of "difficult" punks Twin Steps, surf pop group Meat Market, experimental solo act MOM, and Ssun Prairie will be playing at Bottom of the Hill.

Twin Steps is a band off Oakland-based label and store, 1-2-3-4 Go! Records. The sample-driven act bounces between being soulful and zany, with the perfect amount of angst thrown in for good measure.

Also boasting an Oakland pedigree is Meat Market - a band that blends surf, punk and pop to create breezy tunes sometimes filled with shared vocals reminiscent of '60s garage rock.

MOM, a Sacramento-based experimental solo act with a capacity for incredibly distorted vocals, intrigued audiences a few years back with a 2011 full-length on Burger Records dubbed Greatest Shits.

And opening is Ssun Prairie, a band from Oakland that combines elements of good ol' rock n' roll, punk, and thrash metal. Check out the band's 2013 demo via Bandcamp.
