Giveaway: Dent May says so long to summer at Rickshaw Stop

Do you feel it? That nip in the air. That morning fog. That whisper of winter. Coats are being moved to the front of the closet. Suddenly, hot beverages don't sound like such a bad idea. Fall is making its slow entrance to San Francisco. Summer's ending, and that's sad. But with it never has to go away with Dent May, mastermind behind the saddest beach jam you've ever heard. The Mississippi(!)-born songwriter has stuck to off-kilter electro jams and bouncy, time-capsule pop tunes in the past. His most recent effort, however, takes a turn for the utterly depressed, containing [...]

Win tickets to see Dent May at Slim's!

Pop-folk-R&B-multi-genre extraordinaire Dent May will be headlining a (((folkYEAH!))) show this Friday, January 24 at Slim's. Touring after the release of his most recent album, Warm Blanket, groovy Dent May will be playing with psychedelic singer-songwriter Chris Cohen, and Rocky Horror-inspired psych-rock group, Jack Name. All bands playing have a way of changing up traditional psychedelic genre tropes -- either combining them with acoustic, mellow sounds, or bringing out their full flare with tons of synths and reverbed vocals. Interested in checking out the show? Fret no more! To enter for a chance to win tickets to see Dent May at Slim's, email contest@thebaybridged.com [...]

Car trouble: Dent May's van breaks down, San Jose date cancelled, Oakland, S.F. shows still on

Even musicians who play the ukulele on records with positively laid-back cover art and produce some of the most carefree pop tunes this side of 2012 are not immune from getting into scrapes. Case in point: Dent May — the Mississippi native who recently covered The Grateful Dead and whose new record, Do Things, features plenty of Brian Wilson-esque melodic arrangements — suffered a setback on Wednesday, June 27. No matter how sun-soaked May's tunes may be, proverbial clouds hung over his tour this day, as his van broke down en route to a show at The Blank Club in [...]

Dent May covers The Dead, has Bay Area shows 6/29/12 & 6/30/12

"They say this town ain't got no heart," but Oxford, Mississippi native Dent May certainly does. Shortly after the release of his new album, Do Things, Dent May paid tribute to the Grateful Dead with a cover of their disco-infused classic "Shakedown Street." Dent May sticks to his Good Feeling Music vibes but drops the ukulele on Do Things, out now on Paw Tracks. With all the instruments played entirely by himself, May recorded the bulk of the album at his Cats Purring Dude Ranch in Oxford, MS. Self-described as a "wedding reception band on acid," Dent May's ear for [...]

A.C. Newman shines at The Independent

Words and Photos by: Ben Van Houten Opening with "There Are Maybe Ten Or Twelve," the first track from his new solo album, A.C. Newman delivered an hour-plus set of stately chamber-power-pop to great applause on Saturday night at The Independent. After weeks of hand-wringing about Get Guilty--Was the production too muted? Were some of the songs too long or too slow?--it was welcome relief that the live show rendered these questions moot via an enthusiastic set from this former San Francisco resident. Yes, Newman announced, he lived for a period of time at Broderick and Eddy, noting that, memorably, [...]
