Review + Photos: Luna, Everyone is Dirty at the Independent

Photo by William Wayland Words by Sosha Young On Friday, February 7, Luna and Everyone is Dirty played to a sold-out crowd at San Francisco’s best-sounding venue, the Independent. I grew up on the East Coast listening to Luna songs and meditating on the lyrics. Now I’m an Oakland girl who dances at a lot of Everyone is Dirty shows. In the 1990s, Luna was the pub-rock band in New York and so many cool college towns of the Northeast. Now, Everyone is Dirty fills a similar role for the West Coast scene. Call me a romantic, but I [...]

Photos: Everyone is Dirty at Bottom of the Hill

Everyone is Dirty (photo: Robert Alleyne) It was a diverse night of music on Thursday, February 15th, at Bottom of the Hill as Everyone Is Dirty, Sis, and Firemaid all performed. Firemaid opened with a set of warm, organic, soul-music that was given an extra punch by the addition of a small horn section. Sis soothed spirits with a collection of dreamy, serene indie cuts at only their second show as a band. Everyone Is Dirty closed the evening with a raucous set that got the small crowd jumping late into the night! Check out the gallery below for all the sights. [...]

Live This Month: September 2017 — an audio guide to upcoming Bay Area concerts Download: Live This Month: September 2017 (Podcast #414) 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.

We've also got new music from the terrific Oakland bands Everyone Is Dirty [...]

Three unique local acts (Foxtails Brigade, Everyone Is Dirty, Spooky Mansion) hit the Chapel

Tonight, the Chapel will play host to an excellent trio of acts, each brilliant in their own way: Foxtails Brigade, Everyone Is Dirty, and Spooky Mansion. All three bands are Bay Area locals, and all three have steered their art into striking new territory. Fronted by the silken-voiced Laura Weinbach, Foxtails Brigade concocts an idiosyncratic blend of genres that hovers somewhere between twee indie pop, lounge singing, carnival music, and however you might pin down acts like Reverie Sound Revue, Panda Bear, and Merrill Garbus’s tUnE-yArDs. Like those bands, Foxtails Brigade makes use of angular, unexpected intervals and vertiginous shifts [...]

Everyone Is Dirty set off on national tour, play SF Halloween show

Your favorite electric violin-governed rockers are hitting their own campaign trail bringing the sounds of Everyone is Dirty to as many corners of America as possible. The Oakland four-piece powered by Sivan Lioncub (violin, vocals), Chris Daddio (guitar), Tony Sales (drums), and Tyler English (bass) sets off today starting through the Southwest and preparing to leave 20 lucky cities with ringing ears. Dying is Fun, the band’s debut record, has hit two years old, but if you’re playing catch-up I suggest starting your education with “California” or “Mama, No!!!” on repeat for a minimum of one week. Fast forward to earlier [...]

Let It Bleed: Sea Witch to bring rock and roll tampon drive to the Bay

I was lucky to be able to chat with Lauren Espina of the collective Our House last year, and she mentioned that apart from working with Our House, she and some friends were working on a new production collective called Sea Witch which would focus on "darker, weirder kind of stuff." Then, Sea Witch didn't have any shows under their belt, but now with a few down, they have something important and fun in store: Let It Bleed. Probably the first "Rock and Roll Tampon Drive," the show takes on many roles as it kicks off Women's History Month. For one, they're presenting [...]

We knew that our tenth anniversary party would be a night to remember, but that was one hell of a show!

We'd also like to thank Magnolia Photo Booth Co., Jolt 'n Bolt Bakery & Café for delicious pastries, and [...]

The Bay on Bowie: Bay Area bands memorialize the iconic cultural hero

Our beloved Starman has passed on, and as the news has sunk deep into our hearts and minds, we at The Bay Bridged are giving a space for some of our favorite local bands and musicians to dedicate their David Bowie tributes, however they wish to honor him. The consensus, if we could ever come to one? It's quite hard to distill years of Bowie memories into words; many had their sexual awakenings to Bowie's package in Labyrinth; and so many parts of his body of work had a profound impact on people. Read their poignant words below. Derek Barber, Perhapsy/Bells [...]
