Indie pop will dominate the Milk Bar tomorrow night, with a headlining set by Street Joy out of Los Angeles. “Moon”, a new track from Street Joy that will appear on their debut LP to be released this summer, just premiered on Billboard.
Joining Street Joy will be a handful of locals, starting with Summer Peaks, whose recent album I wrote about earlier this year. After additional listens of their most recent album, Saturday, I feel like I didn’t gush enough about these kids. The album isn’t quite as polished as it could be, but the foundation is there for some great music in the future. I expect this is the first of many local appearances from Summer Peaks, so if you catch them now, you can say you were one of the first.
Earlier this year, we told you about The Midnight Snackers and their music that seems to borrow from genres ranging from hair metal to jazz without sounding contrived. Their most recent release, Foul Weather Friends, is a hell of a lot of fun.
Finally, Makeout Rampage is listed on the Milk Bar’s website as “Four girls from San Francisco playing 60’s inspired pop music and enjoying kisses on the beach. Maybe you know of them in another life…” Hmmm, sounds familiar.
