Donovan Quinn – "Shadow on the Stone"

SF’s Jagjaguwar talent Skygreen Leopards release @ Amnesia Saturday

This Saturday at Amnesia Bar in SF (9pm, $8) the Skygreen Leopards will be releasing their new album Gorgeous Johnny (Jagjaguwar) which will only serve to further solidify their retro pop sound.

Dusted magazine called [...]

Skygreen Leopards, Eyes, The Mantles to Play BOTH Thursday

Back to play shows in the Bay Area for the first time since early May, Skygreen Leopards will be performing at Bottom of the Hill this Thursday, October 9. Since starting out as a duo of Glenn Donaldson, co-founder of the Bay area experimental folk label Jewelled Antler, and Donovan Quinn, Skygreen Leopards have gone through somewhat of a metamorphosis after recording five full-length albums and one EP, but remain, as they claim, "California's family band." Skygreen Leopards - "Let Me Grow In Your Meadow" Also playing on Thursday are Krautrock-inspired band, Eyes, and The Mantles, who pay [...]
