Review & Photos: Kids on a Crime Spree, Bad Bibles, Adios Amigo @ The Hemlock 1/27/12

The stage at last Friday night's show at the Hemlock hosted an eclectic motley crew of understated indie crooners, confrontational post punk performers, and fuzzed-out pop embraces. The night began with Adios Amigo, which features Johnny Major from another Spanish-named band, Il Gato. Their music is more low-key than in your face, with subtle crescendos and washed out three-part vocal harmonies.

Kids On A Crime Spree – “Sweet Tooth”

"Sweet Tooth" is, like the name might suggest, an incredibly sugary and all-too-brief pop confection from Oakland band Kids On A Crime Spree. Led by Mario Hernandez of From Bubblegum to Sky (and rounded out by FBtS bandmates Becky Barron and Bill Evans), the trio's debut album We Love You So Bad comes out on -- where else? -- Slumberland Records on May 28th. They're also performing at the ridiculously stacked Slumberland show during SF Popfest.
