Oakland’s Halcyonaire is headlining Thee Parkside tomorrow, June 14, marking their first Bay Area show since they kicked off their Southwest tour in April. While on the road, the band made pitstops in the desert landscapes between San Diego and Phoenix to collected field recordings that they’ve since taken into their Fruitvale studio. Chris Damien, Geoff Saba and company have been busy turning those sound bites into new songs, and while they’ve yet to release any material since the three-song vignette Urban Arson –which we premiered on the Bay Bridged a couple of months back — you can watch the five-piece outfit unfold their dusty Americana soul along with a stellar lineup tomorrow night.
Opening the night will be San Francisco’s desert surf pop outfit Union Pacific, who is about to head out on its first tour later this month, as well as the pop duo Peachelope, whose tough undercurrents are masked by a floral-clad exterior. Joining the Bay Area lineup is Southern California’s Time and Energy, a loop-driven rock band that blends jazz, electronica and the blues into its own experimental amalgam.
