The Bay Bridged is proud to present a night of great local indie rock music to close out our 2007 right! It’s the last Bay Area performance of the year for each of the three excellent bands, and all three have plenty to celebrate from 2007. Plus, the Rickshaw Stop is one of the best spots in the City to catch a show, so get your tickets now and prepare for a great night of music!
About the bands:
Oakland indie rock luminaries The Heavenly States (MySpace) spent much of 2007 touring and finishing their highly anticipated album Delayer to be released early next year. “This is rock ‘n’ roll in its most timeless form, free of gimmickry or genre-melding. Black Comet has as much ‘fuck you’ attitude as Beat on the Brat and as much pop infection as anything from ’80s radio. It’s easy to forget how great rock music is until you hear it done properly.” (Splendid Magazine)
Oakland/Berkeley-based The Morning Benders (MySpace/web site/blog) have been winning a whole lot of fans with their two EPs of indie pop-rock and we’re looking forward to the band’s debut full length next year. “Great songwriting and melodies make for some incredibly catchy songs. I urge you to go check out this EP…I promise that you’ll see and hear of this band again. They have a very bright future.” (The Tripwire)
San Francisco’s The Dilettantes‘ (MySpace) debut full length 101 Tambourines heralds the band as a worthy successor to the Bay Area’s classic garage and psych groups. “The Dilettantes show us that San Francisco psychedelic music is still around and that the City is still the best at it with this jewel of an album.” (Zero) “Hands down my favorite record so far this year.” (Joe Rockhead)
