Live This Month: January 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #268)

Live This Month: January 2012 (Podcast #268) 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. If the beginning of January feels a little slim on the live music front, things should ramp back up into the usual overwhelming number of interesting shows by the month's end. Several young local bands recently came onto our radar -- including Churches, Poor Sons, and Primitive Hearts -- and they're all partaking in locals-heavy bills in the next few weeks.

Mi Ami LP out next week, support High Places Wednesday @ Rickshaw Stop

Mi Ami and High Places (LA) are both headed to the Rickshaw Stop this Wednesday to support their newest Thrill Jockey releases with LA's Smell allstars, Protect Me (8pm, $12). While High Places' High Places vs. Mankind is out today, Mi Ami's Steal Your Face LP has been announced to drop April 6.
