Live This Month: September 2011 (Podcast #256) 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. Two big local-focused events top this month's calendar. First, we're pleased to be co-producing the free, all ages 2011 Rock Make Street Festival, taking place on September 17th at Treat Avenue and 18th Street in the Mission District. Additionally, the Mission Creek Music Festival returns to SF and Oakland for its fifteenth installment this month. Beyond those fests, the September concert calendar seems heavy on out-of-town acts playing [...]

Washed Out’s Yours Truly session includes cameos from Dominant Legs, The Frail Presents: Washed Out "Far Away" from Yours Truly on Vimeo. On the surface, it's about as random of a collaboration as one could come across. Before Washed Out headlined the Great American Music Hall last month, Ernest walked a few blocks over to Hyde Street Studio C where Yours Truly did their thing, with studio engineer Scott McDowell (Birds & Batteries, Sean Hayes, Geographer) capturing the session's audio. The first striking thing about this video is the "soft rock" approach Erwin takes to the otherwise pronounced "chillwave" genre he's been trailblazing. After a seconds of "Far Away," a smooth [...]

Photos: Best set goes to Melted Toys, with Real Estate and Dominant Legs @ The Independent, 8/2/11

At Tuesday night's Independent show with Dominant Legs and Melted Toys, Real Estate pulled together a tighter, more engaging set than they did in the Big Sur woods over the weekend. Hunched over and adoringly strumming, they concluded their Bay Area visit with the three-part harmonies people over the weekend were dying for on "Green River" and "Suburban Beverage." It was a lovely set, but openers Melted Toys won the evening with one of their best performances to date. They unveiled a few new songs that added a little more flavor to their 80s sound, testing out an acoustic guitar [...]

Real Estate’s new single, tour stops in Big Sur and at the Independent
