Bleached and Terry Malts tear up Rickshaw Stop at Noise Pop

Photos by Debra Zeller On Friday night of Noise Pop, Bleached and Terry Malts took over Rickshaw Stop and virtually brought the house down. Early on, fans were treated to a strong opening by San Diego's Tropical Popsicle. In spite of their sunny name, and though on record they’re a little more major-key, live and in-person Tropical Popsicle are a slightly shoegaze-y throwback to echoing, ‘80s dance drone. And oh, did they dance: it was nice to see a crowd really and truly dance for once, not just bob around with their arms firmly folded over their chests. Mystic Braves [...]

We've got twelve amazing bands set to perform, led by SF's Thee Oh Sees and LA-by-way-of-Portland band YACHT.

Bleached – "Dead in Your Head" (coming to The Independent, 5/5/13)

Out of the Hollywood hills comes much-talked about Bleached. Toting a sunny beach-ed out sound that has all the jean-jackets-and-Converse cool of classic rock sewn in, L.A. sisters Jennifer and Jessie Calvin have been gaining steady momentum. Their debut album, Ride Your Heart, was released earlier this month and the ladies have been touring the U.S. and Canada ever since. Their penultimate show of the tour happens at The Independent on May 5. While most of Ride Your Heart is many parts devil-may-care, their new single "Dead in Your Head" offers more depth. The catchy song lyrically dives into longing [...]

Bleached announce debut album and spring tour (at the Independent 5/5/13)

With three 7” singles released in 2011 and a year full of touring in 2012, it seems odd that Bleached is only now about to drop their debut full length record, Ride Your Heart. However, a bit of notoriety before releasing a new record is always a good sign that a band is here to stay, and this LA-based-and-raised sister duo is no exception: they’ve already toured alongside like minded rockers such as Japandroids, Ty Segall, DIIV, and The Black Lips. The bleached hair, bleached denim girl-band comprised of Jennifer and Jessica Calvin have been seen all over the rock [...]

Ticket Giveaway: Japandroids & Bleached at The Fillmore, 11/12/12

Canadian wunderkinds Japandroids are coming back to the City next Monday, continuing to ride the wave of their second full-length album, June's Celebration Rock. Just nine days after that album dropped, Brian King and David Prowse played a headlining gig at The Independent (capacity: 500), but now the duo returns to the mother of all San Francisco venues, the legendary Fillmore, and its 1,200 capacity – what a difference five months can make! The fine folks at The Fillmore were generous enough to give us one pair of of tickets to Japandroids' show (which features L.A.'s Bleached supporting), so one [...]

Bleached announces Fall tour dates with Japandroids, coming to The Fillmore 11/12/12

L.A.'s Bleached is hitting the road again this November, playing a leg of dates throughout the western U.S. in support of garage rock's newly-minted superstars Japandroids. The recently announced tour will see the Clavin sisters opening for Vancouver's finest on November 12th at the Fillmore—a venue with more than twice the capacity of the Independent, where Japandroids played as recently as June. Bleached's star continues to rise, with their lo-fi, dirty bubblegum rock sound and the sisters' history as members of now-defunct Mika Miko garnering them a fair share of press clippings and tours with the likes of DIIV and [...]

DIIV and Bleached come to the Rickshaw Stop on 8/1/12

One of my most recent obsessions, DIIV, are scheduled to play The Rickshaw Stop this Wednesday, August 1. The Brooklyn-based band plays a laid-back, reverb-soaked brand of upbeat indie pop — the kind of music you might want to dance to with your head cast down, arms out to the side and lightly listing and twisting from side to side. Kinda like you might dance if you were on "one part THC and two parts MDMA," as the band is described in their official bio. DIIV (formerly known as Dive) do a lot with a little. "How Long Have You Known" [...]
