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.

We always include a healthy amount of new and emerging bands in these episodes, but this month’s mix also includes a handful of reunions. While the founders of P.S. Eliot, Katie and Allison Crutchfield, are now occupied with Waxahatchee and Swearin’, the sisters have reunited their early band for a series of shows to celebrate a new anthology on Don Giovanni Records. For an example of a reunion with longevity, look no further than Dinosaur Jr., who have been going strong now for over a dozen years, and have a new album full of noisy indie rock goodness. Local band Loquat is only coming back together for one more show, a proper finale for the beloved indie pop group.

Some of this month’s inclusions represent new projects for established music vets. CFM is the solo endeavor of Charles Moothart; he’s been a member of Ty Segall’s band, Fuzz, and Moonhearts, but his latest is an eclectic and personal project. Fans of the Danish trio Efterklang will want to check out Liima, which finds the band collaborating with Finnish musician Tatu Rönkkö on intricate sonic compositions. But the pinnacle of new/familiar names this month is inc. no world, previously known as inc. back when they released the album no world several years back. In any event, the duo’s rich electronic pop makes it worth sorting through any name-related confusion.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
