Live This Month: November 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #291)

In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Who would have expected November to offer a slew of new releases from Bay Area bands? The month promises long-awaited new records — and local shows — from Maus Haus and Social Studies, as well as psychy new offerings from The Love Dimension and Golden Void (a new project that includes Earthless guitarist Isaiah Mitchell). And that list doesn’t even include the new albums and upcoming shows of Mark Eitzel and Tamaryn!

Yes, this mix is a little more local-heavy than normal, but the touring highlights include some big ones. Canadian trio METZ is touring behind a ton of buzz and a loud, rocking new album on Sub Pop, while Welsh band Future Of The Left is bringing their intense, energetic live show to Slim’s as part of a nationwide trip.

Enjoy the mix and then go see some shows!
