Shannon and the Clams

Download: Live This Month: August 2018 (Podcast #431)

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.

This month’s mix kicks off with a song from Shannon & the Clams, one of many great Bay Area bands performing over the three days of the 2018 Outside Lands Festival. Outside Lands isn’t the only outdoor fest highlighted here. We’ve also included a track from The Marias ahead of their appearance at the 20th Street Block Party.

This episode also showcases heavy sounds from Drowse and Uniform, the post-punk of Sneaks and Bodega, and killer melodies courtesy of Astronauts, etc., Mayya, and Tony Molina.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
