The Rickshaw Stop is hosting a stellar lineup this Wednesday, November 13, headlined by San Francisco’s own Farallons. The dream-surf outfit released one of my favorite EPs of the year, Outer Sunsets, back in July, capturing a warm, dark, California-drenched sound that perfectly encapsulates the subtle beauty of where it was created: the often overlooked coastal fringe of the city. You can hear the entire record over at Farallons’ Bandcamp page, but as is the case with most bands, you need to see them live to really digest the charming, effortless interplay of lead vocalist and guitarist Andrew Brennan and singer/keyboardist Aubrey Trinnaman.

Joining Farallons will be Michael Musika, a San Francisco-based band that makes soul-folk tunes driven by acoustic guitar, minimal percussion and a vocal delivery that floats in a realm between singing and speaking. Unfortunately, From A Fountain had to drop out of the lineup, but JJAAXXN will be taking over with his psych-tinged electro pop experiments.
