Our friends at The Deli SF are joining forces this Saturday with New and Used Records to put on a collection of awesome local groups at El Rio.

Other than being diverse with their sound, The Dont’s have been steadily grabbing the ears of many in the Bay Area for their improvisational methods of playing. Their second album, Inner El Camino swelled their fan numbers last year in 2007 as well as their presence at this year’s Noise Pop Festival. They are currently recording their third album which we hope to get a preview of at the show.

With twinkling electric notes and humming cellos pulls, Geographer opened many new eyes with their debut album Innocent Ghosts. Between the sold out bash of their release party at Café du Nord that we presented and a feature mention on Spin.com, more than just a few have been keeping track of this group to see how long they can contain that dazzling synth before it explodes across the airwaves, taking Geographer with it.

Tigers Can Bite You, it’s a fact here in San Francisco, and a growing one in L.A. Though no stranger to the Bay Area, Dave Woody, who provides guitar and vocals for the group, was the front of Fiver who once headlined the Noise Pop Festival. If this rings any bells that you pleasantly remember hearing, Woody has stated that his work in Tigers Can Bite You is his strongest yet. The group came to massive attention when they were handpicked by the Silversun Pickups to open for their Troubadour show. Their new album Steve Ward Hears Voices is out now. 9pm, $7.
