Live This Month: February 2011 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.

Sugar & Gold surprise openers for The Whitest Boy Alive tonight @ Slim’s

http://vimeo.com/10932926 Berlin electro-dance band The Whitest Boy Alive is making their first adventure in the states quite adventurous. With known plans to play Coachella later this week and a sold-out Slim's show tonight, they whispered notice via an anonymous craigslist.org post yesterday that they were pre-partying in Oakland. They played two sets last night -- throwing in a "Nobody Loves Me" Portishead singalong -- and we're thrilled to have evidence to prove it (thanks to Scott and Trazmick!). Tonight's show at Slim's had "surprise guests" until now: opening is Sugar & Gold! They're warming up for their big Get Wet! [...]

Singles + tourdates: Birds & Batteries, Judgement Day, Sugar & Gold

The week's chosen bands all share a few similarities: they've recently released new singles, are about to embark on national tours, and two of the three are stopping in Austin this week for SxSW. Before releasing Panorama, Birds & Batteries shelled out the free download "Out in the Woods," an "extended prog-house jam" sampling both the upcoming record and their last record, Up To No Good. While in Austin, B&B will be playing our Bay Area Takeover at the Beauty Bar, as well as other shows (listed after the jump). On a similar game plan is the local stringed metal [...]

Noise Pop 2010: !!!, Maus Haus, Sugar & Gold, My First Earthquake @ The Mezzanine

!!!, Maus Haus, Sugar & Gold and My First Earthquake all brought their A-game to the Mezzanine last Saturday night. My First Earthquake, a local electro-pop quartet, opened up the night with their snappy humorous ditties. "Sack Lunch" - about a pervy teacher (Rebecca's words, not mine) - and "Hot Girlfriend" were the standouts of the night. Lead singer Rebecca Bortman is a born show-woman, ribbing her band mates and chatting up the audience before prompting us to rock the fuck out. "Cool in the Cool Way" (which has an accompanying video about Mission hipsters), with its Nintendo-inspired synth riffs, [...]

TBB Premiere: Sugar & Gold – “Xmas In Yr Neighborhood”

Back when I thought I knew everything, I was convinced that nothing was worse than Christmas music. In the years since, I've learned that all holiday-themed music isn't horrible, only most of it, so it was with a little trepidation that I listened to local electro-disco-rock band Sugar & Gold's new holiday song "Xmas In Yr Neighborhood". Thankfully, as I've come to expect from the band, the song is funky and fun, and very much the opposite of horrible. Enjoy with spiked cider! Sugar & Gold - "Xmas In Yr Neighborhood"
