San Francisco bands Rin Tin Tiger and Owl Paws have teamed up to do a “double album release show” at The Independent this week. Rin Tin Tiger is celebrating their latest release, Burial Grounds, with Owl Paws putting out their first full length, Reservoir. The groups will be supported by fellow SF band Growwler.
Headliner Rin Tin Tiger is solid and reliable, with thick guitars, a penetratingly strong lead singer, and just a full rockin’ sound. They make for an energetic show! Then there’s Owl Paws, who make muscular folk rock. Their tough, workmanlike rhythm section provides a well-built groove structure for the guitar and vocals to float and glide over. They give every show, from the intimate, low-key gig to the grandeur of The Independent and beyond, a a one-of-a-kind feel. And Growwler sounds like a party! I haven’t seen them live, but their latest, Even Tenor, is tons of fun, filled with grooves, organ, and an adventurous spirit. Check them out!
