Silian Rail - "'I' is Somebody Else" Bay Area label Parks and Records recently announced the signing of local instrumental rock duo Silian Rail, whose new album Parhelion will be out on the label sometime this summer.

The two groups will be at The Blank Club on 5/25 and at Milk on 5/27 (for the official 7" release party). debuts new show series at Milk

The local, show listings-based has announced a new indie show series in the Upper Haight. This series will take place on Thursdays (starting this Thursday, 3/11) at a new venue called Milk, which has taken over the previous Club Boomerang space, located at 1840 Haight St. (across from Amoeba Records).

Worker Bee, Boomsnake, Silian Rail @ the Hemlock Tuesday

Tonight's bill at the Hemlock Tavern (9 pm, $5) will include two Bay Area standbys, plus some San Diego music thrown in for good measure.

Musical Pairings: The Bay Needs Guitars!

It is Fall in the Bay Area, and like most other places on the West coast, that means it gets dark earlier in the evenings, stays dark longer in the mornings, and we are already seeing some monsoon-like rains that will be more and more frequent in the coming months.  And although there is nothing wrong with throwing on The Morning Benders' excellent Bedroom Covers album or the Papercuts' fantastic You Can Have What You Want and pulling out a bottle of red wine and choosing to accept and deal with the weather (great albums for that purpose by the [...]

SF supergroup venerates the =w= @ BotH Thursday

Nostalgic albums -- they cause the ear to tingle upon the first note of the first song and once soundtracked every moment of a period of your life. Call them crazy, but a group of local talent had the valiant idea of giving Weezer's Pinkerton a public genuflect at Bottom of the Hill tomorrow night with two more Bay Area acts: Wendy Darling and The Definite Articles (9pm, $10). If half-Japanese girls are your thing or maybe you're just tired of sex altogether, there's at least one song for you. The headliners will perform the 1996 masterpiece from start to [...]
