The Rumble Wednesday: Jaguar Love, My First Earthquake, Butterfly Bones

This month's edition of the Rumble, while still true to form, will be extra special. First, given that the festival is rapidly approaching, this event is being billed as a "Noise Pop Warm-Up." Second, the event is saying a sad goodbye to its Harlot roots and moving over to begin a new relationship with Cafe du Nord. And third, the 26th edition of the Rumble will help to celebrate not just one, but TWO birthdays: the 5th birthday of the Owl Mag, and the 7th birthday of one BAGeL Ted and his internet radio genius.

My First Earthquake: album release show Saturday @ Cafe Du Nord

The members of San Francisco's My First Earthquake come from very different backgrounds. Two members used to play in metal bands, one helped develop essential parts of the iPod, and the other used to play in a band with We Are Scientist's Keith Murray. With so much experience and diversity, it is only natural that the group have taken it upon themselves to release their own debut album, Downstairs. Their record release show goes down Saturday at Cafe du Nord (9:30, $10) with Blue Rabbit and B and Not B. My First Earthquake - "Cool in the Cool [...]

The Old-Fashioned Way CD Release Wednesday

This Wednesday at Bottom of the Hill there is a great local lineup. The Old-Fashioned Way will be celebrating their EP release, joined by The Botticellis and My First Earthquake. The new EP The Old-Fashioned Way and Their Weak Constitutions is a five-song EP the band recorded last summer at Pan American Studios with Jason Quever (of Papercuts). The music is a quirky blend of indie pop and folk, with more instruments than you can fathom on any one project and vocals lower than us normal folks could ever hope to hit. The Old-Fashioned Way - "The Spirit [...]
