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.
This month’s episode is stacked with album release shows for Bay Area bands, with Bay Bridged favorites like Terry Malts and Kelley Stoltz introducing new albums we’re really excited about. We’re also proud to be presenting a series of September concerts celebrating the release of These Strange Days, a brand new compilation of local bands curated by 20 Sided Records. Two more local releases mentioned in this episode are also worth noting: a new LP from The Wrong Words, who are embarking on a US tour in September, and Borderlines, the debut full length from Evil Eyes.
Looking at who’s coming into town this month, the always reliable Burger Records is bringing the Burgerama tour to SF, with together PANGEA joined by the equally rad Cosmonauts and Gap Dream. If you’re looking for something gloomier, though, consider the gothic sounds of Zola Jesus, whose amazing voice feels even more powerful live, or True Widow‘s weighty doom-rock.
Founded in 2006, The Bay Bridged is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization utilizing new media and presenting live events to support the San Francisco Bay Area’s indie rock, folk, and pop music communities.
