Pete Bernhard, Jake Mann and the Upper Hand, Leopold and his Fiction @ Cafe du Nord 2/21

Review By: Elizabeth Maki Photos By: Nicole L. Browner Despite a rainy day, a fair crowd showed up Sunday evening for an efficiently run show at Cafe du Nord. Leopold and his Fiction opened, playing their second release, Ain't No Surprise, in its entirety. While there are suggestions of blues and country in references to broken hearts and trains, the new album rolls out a steady rock sound. Occasionally, this expansive sound eclipsed frontman Daniel James' deft storytelling and the small string section they brought for part of the set. The band's strongest point was their high-wire energy; bassist Micayla [...]

Pete Bernhard (DM3), Jake Mann, Leopold @ Cafe du Nord 2/21

Where the Devil Makes Three make hyper-driven, fingerpickin' country, frontman Pete Bernhard's solo music treads a little differently. Lighter orchestral qualities mix with Bernhard's traditional ragtime style, coming together to create an endearing mix of classic Americana. His second record, Straight Line, is out now via Milan Records. Pete Bernhard - "Warning" Spending most of the past couple of years touring with DM3, Bernhard is set to play Cafe du Nord this Sunday, February 21st (8 pm, $10, 21+). Opening the show will be local favorites Leopold and His Fiction and Jake Mann and the Upper Hand. [...]

Devil Makes Three heats the summer with KEXP EP

The Devil Makes Three (Santa Cruz/Davis) gets busy when the weather gets nice -- first by touring all of spring in support of Do Wrong Right (April 21, Milan Records). Better yet, those honky tonks saved some excitement for the summer: last week DM3 released a quality studio session at KEXP Seattle, recorded back in May. What better way to capture timeless yet spicy folkabilly, in three-part harmonies and natural rhythm, than a live studio session? The EP includes four tracks and audio of the interview, and is available digitally on iTunes. Devil Makes Three - "Do Wrong [...]

Pete Bernhard (DM3), Emily Jane White, Conspiracy of Venus at the Rickshaw tonight

The Rickshaw Stop is throwing quite the Thursday: Devil Makes Three's Pete Bernhard makes a solo appearance tonight, along with two more local acts: Emily Jane White and the women acapella group Conspiracy of Venus. One might expect a similar, stripped down version of DM3, but solo, Pete finds intimacy. His music softens the bite of DM3, but in a good way -- engendering a more rustic, sincere traveling song (with harmonica, of course). April is his touring month! Sample each song off his newest Things I Left Behind, for sale through CDBaby: Pete Bernhard - Things I Left Behind [...]
