Rin Tin Tiger announces Haunted Hoedown 6(66), releases new music video

Rin Tin Tiger's Halloween celebration "Haunted Hoedown" turns six this year. Yes, horror movie sequels usually get worse with each successive release, but this Bay Area tradition only seems to grow stronger with age. It's hard to argue against that claim with this year's lineup, featuring the atmospheric jams of Eyes on the Shore, the blissful chamber pop of Curious Quail, and the moving Americana of Frankie Boots & The County Line. RTT has a new video to accompany the announcement of their last headlining show of the year. "Speak With Me" is a Blair Witch Project-like offering that perfectly [...]

Rin Tin Tiger and Owl Paws team up for double album release show

San Francisco bands Rin Tin Tiger and Owl Paws have teamed up to do a "double album release show" at The Independent this week.  Rin Tin Tiger is celebrating their latest release, Burial Grounds, with Owl Paws putting out their first full length, Reservoir. The groups will be supported by fellow SF band Growwler. Headliner Rin Tin Tiger is solid and reliable, with thick guitars, a penetratingly strong lead singer, and just a full rockin' sound. They make for an energetic show! Then there's Owl Paws, who make muscular folk rock. Their tough, workmanlike rhythm section provides a well-built groove structure for the [...]

Live This Month: July 2015 — an audio guide to upcoming SF concerts

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_July_2015.mp3 Download: Live This Month: July 2015 (Podcast #366) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area. While the returns of Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall to SF this month are certainly cause for excitement, one former local we're especially psyched to see is Tamaryn, previewing songs from next month's Cranekiss over at the Rickshaw Stop. While the artist's first two LPs found her voice floating amidst atmospheric waves of guitar, her new album incorporates elements of dance-pop as well, and finds [...]

Rin Tin Tiger release “Small Cuts That Bleed A Lot,” play Independent 7/10/15

Ahem. Your attention please, ladies and gentlemen: your summer jam has arrived. Our faves Rin Tin Tiger are back with a new single, “Small Cuts That Bleed A Lot,” and it’s a good thing. A very good thing. It’s a little more intense than their usual stuff, but still seems like the natural evolution of the rustic, rootsy sound they’ve established so far. A ripping rockabilly-inspired track, “Small Cuts” is outfitted with a chugging, cowpunk-y crunch and a harmonica hook that’s oozing with earnestness — it sort of seems to match the band’s free-flowing facial hair and apparent preference for [...]

Field Medic premieres new single “Neon Flowerz”

Field Medic, the solo project of Rin Tin Tiger's Kevin Patrick, has a new single out, one that is just as haunting and subtlety captivating as anything on his previous release PEGASUSTHOTZ. Entitled "Neon Flowerz," further emphasizing the songwriter's infatuation with the letter 'z,' it is full of minimalist percussion, creaking vocals that crawl under your skin and a melody that won't leave your subconsciousness for days after first listening to it.  The sparse instrumentation only enhances the foreboding sense of angst and longing inherent in the song, and fans of singer-songwriters like Elliot Smith and Nick Drake will instantly recognize [...]

Giveaway: Music Video Race results show at the Independent with Rin Tin Tiger

It's hard enough to create a decent-looking music video with little constraints—imagine being asked to come up with the premise, execution, and final project in only 48 hours. That was the mission of some of the Bay Area's finest break out artists, who were given a meager budget and paired with star filmmakers to create a stunning, brand new music video in just two days for the third annual Music Video Race. Finally, it's almost time to reveal the final projects, including Rin Tin Tiger, Rich Girls, and Lemme Adams, as they go head to head in the July 20 judging of the [...]
