http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Veteran_Artists_Mixtape.mp3 Download: Mixtape: New Music from Longtime Bay Area Artists (Podcast #413) Between streaming music services and social media, it feels easier than ever to find and consume an endless supply of new bands. But all of that access can also make it more challenging to find the time to keep up with previous favorites. There are plenty of good reasons to get excited about young bands, debut albums, and the prospect of discovering emerging artists, but there's also something uniquely rewarding to watching a great musician's career evolve over time.

Best of 2016: Russell Jelinek’s favorite local lyrical moments

I've never been one to sit down and follow along to the lyrics when I listen to an album, but there were a few lyrical moments from local artists that really punched me in the gut this year. Here are some of my favorites. "I got big money, all facts, petty bitches can fall back" - Kamaiyah on E-40's "Petty": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXKjMGCSADg The words aren't exactly thought-provoking, but Kamaiyah's delivery of this line made me stop what I was doing, spin around, grin ear-to-ear, and immediately start the song over just to get to this line again. The choppy cadence leading [...]

King Rocker presents a double record-release show for Apache and BTs

The Mission used to be seedy. You could buy drugs and a switchblade and get into a lot of trouble without having to try very hard, and there was always a sense of danger and adventure that hung in the air on a hot summer night. As rock and roll bands become an endangered species and bars and venues are being replaced by reclaimed-wood cafes and gastropubs, King Rocker records are taking over The Make Out Room for a double record release party to give everyone a reminder of how much fun a sweaty Sunday night in the Mission could [...]

Apache and the return of Ghost Town Gallery

If you were to search "Ghost Town Gallery" here on this very site, you would see that they have been an on-again, off-again, legendary venue for years.

They were quiet for a while, but now Ghost Town Gallery is back and they're coming back with a big bang. This Saturday, a Jurassic Party is set to explode. Local bands Apache, who recently played (Burger Boogaloo), Pookie & the Poodlez, Cumstain, and Jesus Dude Mom are planned to make a roar [...]

Review: Wednesday Night Live with Jacuzzi Boys, Apache, Greg Ashley, and Terry Malts

In the beginning there were Beach Boys, who begot Soft Boys, and spawned Strange Boys...Now behold: Jacuzzi Boys!------All the way from Miami, FLA, the Boys headlined a very fine Wednesday night at the Rickshaw Stop.  I needed it bad.  Frankly, I was getting sick of San Francisco and all it's vap-O-pens.  Ocotal, Nicaragua is calling to me.  The first city in the world to suffer aerial bombings (guess who dropped 'em?).  They got a festival there in August.  They close down the streets.  Bands come from all over the country and beyond.   It starts at 10pm and ends around 7am.   After breakfast, donkeys in [...]

Budget Rock Showcase VII

The annual Budget Rock Showcase takes over the The Stork Club in Oakland this weekend for "the West Coast's longest running festival for trashy, out of tune (formerly known as 'garage') wacked out music otherwise ignored by the Indie Rock Establishment."

Check out the full lineup and links [...]
