San Francisco folk outfit Night Genes will be having their CD release party at Café Du Nord this Wednesday, February 8th, in celebration of their sophomore effort. Like the Blood follows their 2009 debut, Two Phantoms & A Holy Ghost. The band claims the new record “moves past mortality into rebirth, inquiring into the idea of evolution and progress from one generation to the next.” We think Boise native Eric Ingersoll’s baritone sounds a bit more Matt Berninger than Bill Callahan on the latest.

Night Genes – “Soaring Through the Chromosomes”

Two other local bands open: Tidelands and Yesway, the latter of which consists of Emily Ritz of Honeycomb/Dreams and Kasey Johansing.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.
