On May 23, different eras of San Francisco’s notable independent label, Slumberland Records, will collide to form a lineup of the best twee and garage pop that the label has to offer.
Headlining is the Bay Area’s tour de force garage pop band, The Mantles. Navigating their way throughout the music scene since 2007, the band released their second full-length album last year on (you guessed it) Slumberland Records, called Long Enough To Leave.
Joining in on the fun will also be recently reunited Sacramento-based ’90s twee pop band Rocketship. The band made waves in ’96 with their sunny yet pensive Slumberland Records release dubbed A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness. And hopping on the ’90s indie pop train for the show is Boyracer, a band from England. As a band that seemingly doesn’t quit, the band has released a slew of indie pop releases well into the 2000’s. And opening are The Softies, a collaboration between most notable “twee star” Rose Melberg (formerly of Go Sailor and Tiger Trap) and Jen Sbragia (of All Girl Summer Fun Band).
