Jessy Lanza

Download: Live This Month: May 2017 (Podcast #405)

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.

There’s something for everyone in this podcast episode. Like garage rock? Check out locals Control Freaks and Trash Vampires making their podcast debuts. Dig heavy psych? We’ve got songs from Oakland’s Mondo Drag and San Diego’s Sacri Monti.

If you’re more into indie-pop, though, be sure to check out the soulful folk-pop of the Bay’s Cave Clove as well as recent transplant Max Gardener and the new solo work from The Antlers’ Peter Silberman. And don’t worry electronic music fans: we’re also highlighting a series of great electronic shows this month, from the genre-blending sounds of Jessy Lanza (pictured above), to the brooding synths of Black Marble.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
