The lovely people of Wood Shoppe are at it again. This time around, the monthly music series is bringing Southern California-based outfits PYYRAMIDS and The Hindu Pirates up to San Francisco to join the jangly rock and rollers of Cool Ghouls, four guys who have been making the city proud and earning accolades from the likes of Filter and Impose since the March release of their eponymous debut LP. Most recently, the band caught the attention of UK-based music and culture publication The 405, who premiered the music video for “Natural Life” last week. The video reflects exactly what makes Cool Ghouls so infectious: it is uncontrived and unapologetically filled with joy in the most refreshing way. It also features a bear suit, whiskey, and some of the most beautiful locations around the Bay Area. My favorite part: the full-body wiggle dance montage that starts at 1:40.
These guys have fun making music and leave the brooding to other outfits, so come have fun with them this Tuesday. Wood Shoppes’ own Wilson Zueng will be filling in the sound space between sets, and of course Brick & Mortar will be offering the standard Wood Shoppe deal — free entry, cheap drinks, rad bands, awesomeness.
