This Friday, Apr. 25, KUSF will turn the big 31. And who better to celebrate with them than three of San Francisco’s most exciting acts – Wooden Shjips, Citay and Jenny Hoyston of Erase Errata.

Wooden Shjips, whom we just featured on the Bay Bridged podcast (Feature Podcast) in March, seem to be getting more praise as time goes by, from bloggers like Tom Lax to big-wig music journalists like David Fricke of Rolling Stone. Recently having released a 7″ on Sub Pop, the band soon heads to England for a few shows. It was also just announced that they’ll be playing at the My Bloody Valentine-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival in upstate New York in September.

Citay (Feature Podcast) is coming down from a storm of positive reviews and a tour after the release of their album Little Kingdom late last year. A much-needed break may be in order for them, but I’m sure it won’t be long before we hear more. Jenny Hoyston, who may just be one of the most prolific artists in SF, has used the time she has aside from Erase Errata, her other band Lesbians, DJing and doing sound at El Rio to release some kick-ass tracks on her own. She released her first full-length Isle Of last year on Southern Records.

Prior to the show on Friday, Citay will be interviewed on KUSF with Irwin at 11am. Check it out on 90.3 FM or stream it on The show itself is at Cafe du Nord, starts at 9:30 and costs $10 in advance and $10-20 at the door (sliding scale). Get your tix here.
