Over the years, Popscene has put together some of the most epic indie club nights in San Francisco. The nights usually combine DJ tunes and up-and-coming artists for a fun intimate night with musicians before they go viral. Past acts include artists such as Tove Lo, Flume, Glass Animals, and Muse.
Friday, March 10 at the Rickshaw Stop was no exception. UK music producer Jamie Isaac made his San Francisco debut to a crowd of folks who are sure to say they caught the South London musician in such a close-knit setting later on. The night kicked off with a DJ set by Live 105’s Aaron Axelson and continued with soulful dance tunes from Bells Atlas, a local number from Oakland. Next, Isaac performed songs off his debut album ‘Couch Baby’, an album which earned the artist a spot at this year’s South by Southwest. Though his tunes were a bit more on the mellow side, the audience still danced and sang along to deep and beautiful songs like “Un-thinkable.”
If anything should be said by the crowds reaction to Issac’s performance at popscene this weekend, its that he’s bound to follow in the footsteps of past popscene alumni.
