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.
With the start of the new year come new releases by local musicians, and this mix features new songs from Santa Rosa punks Brown Bags and the old school country-influenced sounds of Laura Benitez and the Heartache, as well as Sacramento post-punk band Screature. We’ve also included great new-to-the-podcast songs from records Madeline Tasquin and GLO released last year.
January also provides opportunities to check out a number of touring bands that put out strong works in 2017. John Maus‘ latest is another compelling set of experimental electronic pop music, while Circuit des Yeux is a captivating avant-folk performer with a keen sense of atmosphere. Meanwhile, Chastity Belt released its third full length last year, and it delivers more winning melodic post-punk.
Founded in 2006, The Bay Bridged is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization utilizing new media and presenting live events to support the San Francisco Bay Area’s indie rock, folk, and pop music communities.
