We hope you’re enjoying our Mission Creek coverage. To keep up with all of the previews, and the reviews and photos as they come in, be sure to visit our MCMAF page, where you’ll find all of our ongoing coverage.
Monday night is a little lighter than some of the others, but there’s some good stuff worth checking out. We’ll be back later with a look at Tuesday’s shows.
Over at the Make-Out Room, there’s a mix of folk-rock and electronic music, headlined by one of our favorite local groups, Pillows. We featured this duo back in our infancy, and they were just recently named “Best Musical Duo” by the East Bay Express. Supporting are Roman Ruins from Oakland, whose MySpace songs suggest a mixture of Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys and modern electronic elements. Also on the bill is the electronic pop of Ellul as well as Sugarghost, from Denmark.
At The Knockout, The Moore Brothers headline with their acoustic folk-rock. Supporting are Los Angeles psych-rockers The Lava Children and Dusty Brown, a brother-sister duo from Sacramento who mix strong female vocals with electronic beats and textures.
Artists’ Television Access is hosting the film and video portion of the Mission Creek festival and you should head over to their site to find out details about all of the screenings. Tonight’s program, Slow Superconductors: Burden of Dreams II, features a series of films documenting Thurston Moore’s record label Ecstatic Peace, and a piece shot and scored by Brian De Graw from Brooklyn’s Gang Gang Dance.
