Last year, Oakland’s Talkies caught our ear with their hook-laced pop-rock sound. Since we first talked to them, Talkies have toured up and down the coast and released their debut cassette on Death Records.

Talkies have a host of shows coming up, starting tomorrow night at Rickshaw with Pins and Queen Kwong. You can also catch them at Deathstock in Guernville June 27 and opening for Terry & Louie at The Night Light in July.
