Or, the Whale (Podcast #189)

[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Or_the_Whale_Show_2.mp3[/podcast] This week, our podcast features San Francisco's Or, the Whale, the seven-piece country-rock band that ranks as one of our longtime Bay Bridged favorites. Inviting the band back into our studio -- two years after we first interviewed them around the release of their first album -- was something of a no-brainer. Or, the Whale's heartfelt songs and superb musicianship have made them one of the Bay's most reliably excellent live bands, and they've backed up sold-out local shows with regular cross-country tours. 2009's been the busiest year yet for the group: their debut, Light Poles and Pines, was [...]

The Bay Bridged Presents: Or, the Whale, The Maldives and Built for the Sea at The Independent Tomorrow!

One of the most reliably entertaining live bands in the Bay Area, Or, the Whale possess that endearing combination of superb musicianship and the ability to cut loose and have fun.

Or, the Whale, Tea Leaf Green at The Fillmore on Friday

Or, the Whale is back in San Francisco after a quick tour down to South by Southwest and will be performing this Friday at The Fillmore with Tea Leaf Green. The last few months have been quite busy for them as they spent a good portion of the end of last year working with Jay Pellicci down at Tiny Telephone recording their new album. Although, we have nothing to post from the new album yet, we've heard a preview track and it brought shivers to my spine; it's just that good. Curious? Head to the show where I'm sure they'll [...]

Review: The Porchsteps, The Mumlers, and Or, the Whale – Friday Sep 26, 2008, at the Starry Plough

Are you ready for Round 2 of Jake Butler checking out a show at the Starry Plough on behalf of The Bay Bridged? I sure as hell was last Friday and this train is leaving town, so jump on board! The night was very promising for the sheer fact that Or, the Whale was coming off a great set at Treasure Island Music Festival (note: for those of you who couldn’t make it, the festival was like Outside Lands minus all the bad parts). Toss in one part The Mumlers, and a generous spoonful of The Porchsteps and badabing badaboom [...]
