New York’s Timeshares and Ohio’s Signals Midwest have both been bands for over half a decade, and have also both made it a point to stay on the road for as long as possible, playing to whomever, wherever. Signals Midwest play a style of emotional punk thats got the mathy flourishes of a lot of early 2000s Midwest bands and the alt-rock leanings of music from the same time that was getting airplay on commercial radio.
Tourmates Timeshares play a similar brand of gruff pop punk, but with a splash of country twang. The tour takes them around the country and back to play Florida’s ‘The Fest’, a festival whose name doubles as a genre indicator, suggesting just the kind of upbeat, Pabst-soaked melody that the two touring acts specialize in.
Next month they’ll be playing San Francisco’s Bottom of the Hill with some of my favorite people in the Bay, Oakland’s Crush and San Jose’s Leer. A performance by Leer has become something of a rarity, so get there early for their harmonized frenzy. Crush have been playing all over the Bay, but thats no reason to miss a chance to see them mic’d up and sounding great; check out some recommended tracks from both below.[bandcamp width=100% height=42 album=4154710350 size=small bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 track=1128572872] [bandcamp width=100% height=42 album=2023111701 size=small bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 track=1242104312]
