Speaking of shows at the Rickshaw Stop this week, on Wednesday night San Francisco’s French Disco celebrate the release of their new EP Mirror Stage. The band’s last EP Icon, was released last year, and the new record finds them progressing nicely, incorporating elements of shoegaze rock, dream pop, and melodic rock calling to mind Stereolab. The four tracks from the EP now streaming at the band’s MySpace page sound great and are definitely worth your listen.

Wednesday’s show starts at 8pm and is $8. People Noise and A Modern Machine also perform, with French Disco on second.
