Live This Month: June 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #279) 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.

Like Exray's, Still Flyin and Adios Amigo are also celebrating new albums this month, but it's not just the locals who have exciting records to offer. Japandroids' latest finds the band in peak DIY noise pop form, [...]

Still Flyin' drop two new singles, new album out May 22

Earnest indie rockers Still Flyin' have released two new singles — "Travelin Man" and "Cleat Talking" — from their upcoming release On A Bedroom Wall, due out May 22. "Cleat Talking" is a minimalist song revolving around a simple bass line and a sweet little chorus about Steven Hawking and changing the world. Still Flyin' - "Cleat Talking" With a twist on the opening line of an Allman Brothers classic ("Lord I was born a travelin' man"), "Travelin Man" gently rocks as Still Flyin' croon about love with a New Order touch.

Snob Theater at SF Sketchfest, January 31, 2012

Local music-and-comedy show Snob Theater is hosting a night of laughs on January 31st at the Eureka Theater for this year's SF Sketchfest. Produced and hosted by San Francisco comedian Shawn Robbins, Snob Theater places indie rock bands and comedians onstage together with intriguing results. San Francisco's own indie rock group Still Flyin' are the musical guest (fun fact: two of the band's songs were recently played on The Office "Pool Party" episode). Featured comedians include Chris Fairbanks (Fuel.TV, Comedy Central), Sheng Wang (Comedy Central), and Coree Spencer (Comedian on Comedian interviews). Tickets are $15, pre-order here. We asked Mr. Robbins to [...]

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 [...]

Best of 2010: Mission Mission on Still Flyin’

[wpaudio url="" text="Still Flyin - 'Bull Riff'" dl="0"] Going to a Still Flyin' show isn't really like going to a show at all; it's more like being at a party where half of your friends are onstage and they're all better at karaoke than you. Hence the title of their latest album, A Party In Motion, which combines genres like 80s New Wave and rocksteady into a disco-fueled romp that would make even ABBA and Boney M jealous. Chugging away through the San Francisco (and European) music scene since 2004, Still Flyin' has played nearly every venue and street festival [...]
