The most common advice these days is “to give a little to get a little,” which the San Francisco music community is showing full understanding of with Friday’s Recession Proof Party. The Independent and Leather Feather will host a cover-free evening of live music with Tornado Rider, LSD and the Search for God, Minipop and DJ Audrock — and the first 50 attendees will receive a complimentary show poster.

Friday’s bill covers the bases for most on a budget, from succulent shoegazy pop — LSD is undeniably a homage to MBV, and Minipop, just like the name, produces small bubbles — to heavy rockers unafraid to straddle the storm and fashion themselves in cowhide.
