http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Veteran_Artists_Mixtape.mp3 Download: Mixtape: New Music from Longtime Bay Area Artists (Podcast #413) Between streaming music services and social media, it feels easier than ever to find and consume an endless supply of new bands. But all of that access can also make it more challenging to find the time to keep up with previous favorites. There are plenty of good reasons to get excited about young bands, debut albums, and the prospect of discovering emerging artists, but there's also something uniquely rewarding to watching a great musician's career evolve over time. This mixtape collects new and recent music from twelve [...]

Once and Future Band bring new album to The Chapel next week

Sit back, relax, and let "Tell Me Those Are Tears of Joy," the new single from Once & Future Band, put you into a fuzzed-out psychedelic trance. The Oakland-based band is poised to release their self-titled debut with Castle Face Records on January 27. The night before, they'll take the stage to celebrate at The Chapel with a stellar opening lineup featuring Kelley Stoltz, Dirty Ghosts, and DJ Frankie (Frankie Koeller from Papercuts). Sure, Once & Future Band has a distinctly '70s vibe, but this isn't purely a nostalgia play — Joel Robinow, Raj Ojha, and Eli Eckert seem so [...]

Photos: Here Tonight: A Tribute to Gene Clark at The Chapel

Here Tonight: A Tribute to Gene Clark (photo: Kristin Cofer) Last Thursday saw a touching tribute to The Byrds' Gene Clark at the Chapel under the title  Here Tonight: A Tribute to Gene Clark. Gene Clark's son was in attendance for the tribute that ranged from Kelley Stoltz, Golden Void, Magic Trick, Sweet Chariot, The Richmond Sluts, Kai Clark and Midnight Sons. Check out the gallery from the night below that our photographer Kristin Cofer captured.

Hey now: Don’t Dream It’s Over to bring art exhibition to life at SFMOMA

Hey now, hey now, let's catch our '80s nostalgia "deluge in a paper cup," as Neil Finn of Crowded House lightly crooned in their 1986 breakout hit "Don't Dream It's Over." A shining, majestic example of New Zealand pop balladry, the song is seeing new light in a fabulously curated SFMOMA event that's capping off Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July's exhibition, "Learning to Love You More." Before we dive into an endless hole of lyric quoting, let's explore the simple yet brilliant concept that anchors the event. Will Rogan and Jonn Herschend of The Thing Quarterly, a local publisher, have [...]

Mixtape: The Musical World of Kelley Stoltz

This post first ran on KQED.org. http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Kelley_Stoltz_Mixtape.mp3 Download: Mixtape: The Musical World of Kelley Stoltz (Podcast #389) If one were only to consider his consistently strong solo albums, San Francisco musician Kelley Stoltz would rightly be labeled an impressive talent. Over the past decade and a half, he's released seven LPs of finely-tuned rock-pop for labels that include Castle Face, Third Man, and Sub Pop. Influenced by classic artists like The Kinks and The Beach Boys, Stoltz conveys a unique and ever-evolving interest in pop mixed with elements of psychedelia and garage rock. Even more impressively, his solo albums have [...]

Ticket Giveaway: Kelley Stoltz + Magic Trick at The Chapel tomorrow!

The first time I ever saw Kelley Stoltz live was at The Chapel about a year and half ago. It was all a sort of fantastic memorable. He sat down and the audience sang along to some of their favorite tunes. There's no denying the sort of hometown glory Stoltz has in San Francisco. He's from the city, and while he has played all around the world and been on labels as big as Sub-Pop, he's remain true to his Beatles-meets-Kinks-meets-Beach Boys sound and style. https://soundcloud.com/kelley-stoltz/hot-igloo-fromthe-scuzzy-inputs-of-willie-weird Pair that up with Tim Cohen (of The Fresh & Only's) most recent project, Magic Trick, [...]

Live This Month: November 2015 — an audio guide to upcoming SF concerts

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_November_2015.mp3 Download: Live This Month: November 2015 (Podcast #374) 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. This month's episode features a wide variety of local and touring bands, with sounds ranging from the rollicking garage-punk of Timmy's Organism and the lo-fi dream-pop of Toner to electronic compositions by Oneohtrix Point Never and Made of Oak (the solo project of Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso). On the out-of-town front, Los Angeles is surprisingly well-represented, with songs from Morgan Delt (performing at the Oakland [...]

Three records and an alter ego: Catching up with Kelley Stoltz

Kelley Stoltz (photo: Rich Hirneisen) Like many San Francisco musicians, Kelley Stoltz releases music in prolific spurts. The last time we talked with him in 2013, he had put out his record Double Exposure and was playing our very own Bay Brewed. This year alone, he's putting out two albums and an EP on two different labels, and of course, there's a reason behind it (somewhat). We chatted with the scene stalwart about his three new releases, his favorite spaghetti in the Mission, and persevering in the rapidly-changing San Francisco arts scene. The Bay Bridged: You released your record Double Exposure in 2013, and now you're [...]

The Bay Brewed is THIS Saturday at Public Works (DJ Jamie Jams joins the party)

Somehow, some way, the calendar already flipped to December, which can mean only one thing. No, this has nothing to do with Santa Claus – it's something even better. The Bay Brewed – San Francisco's only indie rock beer fest – is this Saturday, December 7 at Public Works, with live performances from Mikal Cronin, Shannon and the Clams, Kelley Stoltz, Golden Void, French Cassettes, Magic Fight, and the North Beach Brass Band, accompanied by unlimited beer tastings from a group of 13 SF-based brewers put together by the San Francisco Brewers Guild and food from Doc's of the Bay [...]
