and Father/Daughter showcase at The Knockout

San Francisco’s most secretly located underground radio station and the darling Father/Daughter Records are teaming up to present a showcase at Bernal Heights’ Knockout this Thursday.

City-based headliners Cocktails, who have opened for the likes of Mac DeMarco and Parquet Courts, are a power-pop group (who just threw down a new track). They’ll be releasing a 7-inch called Friday at the show.

Brooklyn’s Blood Sister, which features members from Night Manager, Ganglians, and Warm Soda, will be making their first San Francisco appearance. The noise-pop project, which includes San Francisco native Ezana Edwards, self-released an EP (titled ) earlier this year. The first single for the EP, “Why Would You” (NSFW video below), is shoegazey, distortion-laden DIY punk.

Openers and Bay Area locals Happy Diving, have an affinity for ’90s alt revivalism, drawls in heavy grinds, and warpy hooks. The quartet is releasing a self-titled EP on January 14, so expect to hear unreleased tracks at the showcase. You can pre-order the release via Father/Daughter and, in the meantime, check out the first single “Sincere”, streaming below.
