Local musician opens Cat Town Cafe in Oakland

Cat Town Cafe's Ann Dunn and Adam Myatt. Photo source: Inside Scoop and Facebook There are three bands that have been featured on the Bay Bridged on more than one occasion: James & Evander, Pale Blue Dot, and shortcircles. What do all three of these bands have in common? Local musician and recording engineer Adam Myatt is involved (in one way or another) with all three. And when he's not making or recording music, Myatt's other hobby is cats: He takes photos of cats (see Cat Man of West Oakland and Hoodcats), and his current project (along with fellow cat [...]

Watch the far-out new video for Pale Blue Dot’s “Voyage”

Attention Earthlings, we have intercepted a very important video conference between Oakland trio Pale Blue Dot and a cool pug from the far reaches of outer space. To be less nerdy about it, Pale Blue Dot has released a brand new music video for the title track off their latest instrumental EP, Voyage. As you've probably guessed, the video spoofs sci-fi space travel tropes, complete with costumed cameos from Bay Area allies and even Carl Sagan himself. The video is directed by Sean Wells and Charles Choo. It's a lot of fun, and definitely worth five minutes (even if you [...]

Mixtape: Diving into San Francisco Bay Area Electronic Music (Podcast #315)

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/Electronic_Mix_2013.mp3 Download: Mixtape: Diving into San Francisco Bay Area Electronic Music (Podcast #315) As we've documented before on the podcast, the Bay Area has, for years, hosted a vibrant scene of electronic music producers. But while we've primarily focused our coverage on electronic music's pop side, SF is also home to a variety of innovative, compelling house and techno producers. In addition to the large crop of talented artists, there are significant event producers like Push the Feeling, the influential monthly that has hosted (and, indeed, drawn our attention to) many of the artists in this mix, as well as [...]

Anamanaguchi Dreams of Sushi between two SF shows this weekend

New York City-based Chiptune quartet Anamanaguchi will headline two sold out shows in San Francisco this weekend. Whether or not you were able to nab tickets, you can also catch a free DJ set on Sunday at Blowfish Sushi.

This Sunday, June 9 at 6pm, Imaginary Friends presents Anamanaguchi Dreams of Sushi. Members of the hyper-pop band will perform a free DJ set at Blowfish Sushi (To Die For) at [...]

New Bay Area supergroup Pale Blue Dot opening for El Ten Eleven tonight, 1/11/13

The East Bay trio known as Pale Blue Dot does not necessarily self-identify as a "supergroup," but I went there anyway. Comprised of members of James & Evander, The Aimless Never Miss, and B. Hamilton, what else would you call it? "There may be a few Bay Area music nerds who know our other bands, but we'd hardly call it a supergroup," says Adam Myatt, also of James & Evander. "We're three somewhat-like-minded musicians/friends from Oakland, who met playing shows in various bands together, and like to think of this current project as Carl Sagan-inspired disco." You read that right, [...]
