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.

November’s concert lineup includes big record release shows for the great local bands The Total Bettys and Perhapsy, and you can sample new music from both acts in this episode. Speaking of records, Same Girls will be performing at the Bay Area Record Fest this month, which offers a chance to learn more about local record labels amidst performances by half a dozen excellent Bay Area bands. The mix also features music released this year by the Bay’s World Smasher, Larry June, and Castle.

On the touring front, we’ve spotlighted two new groups comprised of talented solo artists. boygenius finds Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus uniting for a national tour and a new collaborative EP. Similarly, Justus Proffit and Jay Som are touring behind their new release, in which the LA duo explores a mix of indie rock, garage, country and pop sounds. As discussed in the podcast, we’re also really excited for upcoming shows by Australian band The Goon Sax, LA rapper Open Mike Eagle, and Florida punks Gouge Away.

Enjoy the podcast and then go see some concerts!
