Benefit for Kelly Malone announced for 6/7: Social Studies, Royal Baths, Art Museums, Carletta Sue Kay, Sandwitches all to perform

Royal Baths - "After Death" The Sandwitches - "Joe Says" If you are at all familiar with DIY arts, crafts, or design, you probably know Kelly Malone, the creator of Indie Mart and Workshop SF. Malone has given a great deal to SF arts and culture, and now, faced with an advanced stage of cancer, she needs our help: This past April, Kelly was diagnosed with an advanced stage of cancer that had spread to non-localized areas as a result of previous battles. Originally dropped from her previous insurance because of the cancer diagnosis, Kelly has had no chance of [...]

“It Gets Indie” show, organized by local 8th grader, benefits the Trevor Project on 4/24/11 at GAMH

As I get older, memories of my youth become fuzzier - but I can say with a certain level of confidence that at the age of 13, I was less interested in civil rights issues and indie rock and more interested in hair products and winning volleyball games. For local 13-year-old Noah Hornik, however, indie rock is a primary interest, one that he is channeling to help support a good cause. Noah has put together a benefit show at Great American Music Hall on 4/24/11 (7:00 pm, $25), entitled "It Gets Indie." Proceeds will go to the Trevor Project and [...]

Backseat Beat Episode 9: Social Studies, part 2

Backseat Beat Episode 9: Social Studies part 2 from Brad Robertson on Vimeo. Backseat Beat is a video series highlighting indie musicians and the city by the Bay. Armed with Flip cameras, we interview bands in the back seat of our ‘83 Volvo as we spirit them away to unexpected, forgotten corners of San Francisco, where they plug in outdoors to play a few tunes. Each band’s performance transforms these urban spots from their anonymous day to day existence into surreal, magical backdrops. The smell emanating from the back of the van, the bitching and moaning about how your stash [...]

Backseat Beat Episode 9: Social Studies, part 1

Backseat Beat is a video series highlighting indie musicians and the city by the Bay. Armed with Flip cameras, we interview bands in the back seat of our ‘83 Volvo as we spirit them away to unexpected, forgotten corners of San Francisco, where they plug in outdoors to play a few tunes. Each band’s performance transforms these urban spots from their anonymous day to day existence into surreal, magical backdrops. Everyone knows that senior prom is basically a bunch of horny build up followed by dashed hopes, drunken disappointment and, if you're one of the lucky ones, bad sex and [...]

Review + Photos: Still Flyin’, Social Studies, La Corde @ Rickshaw 1/14

Still Flyin' grandstanded the audience at Rickshaw last Friday night, flooding the stage with two percussionists, three backup singers and some epic dance songs. Jamming through songs off their new release Neu Ideas, Sean Rawls played an easy comaraderie with the audience, teasing them with promises of old favorite, "Bird is Aware," later in the set. It was hard to tell whether the band or the audience was having more fun or dancing harder, but I will say, Rawls brought the champagne. Social Studies, with their precise indie pop, flushed out the middle set. While their music rides on the [...]

Mixtape: Surveying the Indie Pop Renaissance (Podcast #241)

Mixtape: Surveying the Indie Pop Renaissance (Podcast #241) We love psych rock, garage, folk rock, singer-songwriter stuff, and a variety of other musical genres here at The Bay Bridged, but our first love was, and will forever be, indie pop. From the jangly to the synthy, an uber-catchy, clever pop song is something to be treasured. After what felt like a few slightly lean years for the genre (from our perspective, anyway), we're now in the midst of a real fertile time for great indie pop. This month's mixtape collects over an hour's worth of great new and recent indie [...]
