There’s a new arts collective in town, and they’re ending 2014 with a bang tonight at Brick & Mortar Music Hall. Our House – the brainchild of Annie Lipetz of Annie Girl and the Flight, Sivan Lioncub of Everyone Is Dirty, The Bay Bridged writer Lauren Espina, and Shayla Thernes and Roxane June from The Chapel – comes strong with its first annual holiday party, dubbed “Rock N Roll Under The Mistletoe” and featuring Lioncub and Lipetz’s bands, plus Down Dirty Shake and Paisano.
On its website, Our House’s stated purpose is to “affirm the arts in our community by weaving a tight network of artists from all disciplines.” The plan is to organize shows and other creative events at a multitude of performance spaces, in an effort to create opportunities for local artists.
“It’s a new collective that throws shows and parties and supports music and art in the Bay,” Lioncub recently told me over email.
It’s always great to see the birth of something new like this, because it’s further confirmation of the strength and resiliency of our local music scene. Our House doesn’t mince words when recognizing the need to look inward when forecasting the future of San Francisco’s arts and music community: “We are the world we create. We are the movers, shakers and makers.”
I couldn’t agree more.
So head over to Brick & Mortar tonight to rock out under the mistletoe with Everyone Is Dirty, Annie Girl and the Flight, Down Dirty Shake, and Paisano. The most recent releases from all four acts can be heard below, followed by full info on tonight’s holiday bash at 13th and Mission.
And if supporting the local arts and music scene wasn’t enough, tonight’s show also features a SuperFood Drive, to collect healthy and non-perishable foods for the the SF-Marin Food Bank. A full list of appropriate items can be found here. Every two items gets you a raffle ticket with a chance to win vinyl, merch, and more.
