Download: Live This Month: April 2016 (Podcast #383)

In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Okay, the start of the month got a little bit away from us, but the rest of April features no shortage of killer shows. This mix spotlights thirteen great bands, with everything from the electric folk-rock of Laura Stevenson and Hard Left‘s mod-punk to captivating electronic tracks from Earthen Sea and Floating Points. We also discuss and hear songs from new local releases by Plush, YOURS, and Abbot Kinney, all of whom are performing stellar-looking shows during the coming month.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
