Noise Pop 2012: Veronica Falls, Bleached, Brilliant Colors, Lilac @ Rickshaw Stop 2/24/12

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of a band must be in want of great hair. Last Friday night at the Rickshaw Stop, which featured four sets of fuzzy guitars, was no exception. Unfortunately I missed Lilac’s set, but I did catch the band’s frontman, Will Ivy, who recently moved down to Los Angeles after six years in the Bay Area. But don’t weep: Half the band is still in San Francisco, so hopefully that means they’ll keep playing shows up here every once in a while. He also cut his signature hair since I [...]

Bleached (ex-Mika Miko) playing two shows in the Bay Area next week

Bleached - "Think Of You" It's a testament to LA art-punk band Mika Miko that the group's dissolution has spawned so many interesting projects, including Dunes, Cold Showers and Bleached. Bleached was formed by Jessica and Jennifer Clavin, and the band has released a couple of 7"s so far. "Think of You" is catchy as hell, with that punk/pop steamroller effect that the Ramones and Misfits both did so well.
