Making their San Francisco debut, Glasgow-based trio PAWS (Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney, Matthew Scott) will headline the Monday night show. Their lyrically-charged pop/rock album Cokefloat! was released last year on FatCat Records. Stream two tracks from that release below, and be sure not to miss tonight’s rare West Coast performance from this fast-rising UK band.
Stockton-based Phono del Sol veterans Surf Club will also be performing tonight. The Craft Spells-affiliated, shoegaze-oriented band led by Frankie Soto recently put out a split 7-inch with Oakland’s Manatee on Death Party Records. “Swoon” to their lastest single below.
Tiaras, which lacks even the slightest internet presence, is the local side project of Ryan Grubbs and Kyle Hoover of Ganglians, with Adam Finken, Antonio Gualco, and Ryan Hansen. Their mysteriousness on the Web is forgiven due to their solid live shows, as demonstrated at Professional Fans Showcase 006.
If you are keeping track, tonight’s event at Cafe Du Nord marks Pro Fans’ fourteenth showcase. As usual, the Pro Fan DJs will keep the vibes rolling between sets by spinning deep cuts from their bottomless vinyl collection.
