It’s become a staple, the monthly event that takes over Brick & Mortar the first Tuesday of every month. It’s free, has an eclectic mix of touring and local bands, and is always fun. And this week, Wood Shoppe celebrates their 4-year anniversary.
Co-founder, Wilson Zheng (Highroad Touring), said the following of the event:
Basically we as a collective (Zachary, Wilson and Abby from High Road Touring, and Acacia from Ticketfly) have put on free concerts at Brick and Mortar on the First Tuesdays of the month for four years now. We’ve had bands from many countries…and we’re determined to keep this going even with the changing climate of San Francisco nightlife, and hope that folks will come out and celebrate our 4th birthday!
The event will have Magic Giant, the Los Angeles-based folk, indie-rock trio as headliners, who are coming fresh off of a strong self-titled EP release this past year. Since then, they spent the rest of the year touring around North America. Their newest single, “Set On Fire” was released in late-2015, and will be followed up by a sophomore EP, which the band is currently recording in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles. The night will also feature music by Sophie Jane Loomis, one of Highroad Touring’s own, for her first full-band show. DJ MPHD & DJ Drunk Cop will also be spinning tunes and DJing throughout the night.
You can check out a video of Magic Giant’s most recent single, “Set On Fire”, below (which has garnered around 200K views in under two weeks).
