Evolving Tanlines excited to headline Phono del Sol Music & Food Festival

(photo: Autumn DeWilde) Scan the discographies of the many promising bands that failed to meet their potentials and you’ll see a landscape littered with disappointing sophomore albums. Debuts are easy. They’re filled with urgent and authentic tracks that capture a lifetime of ideas feverishly distilled and realized.

Live This Month: April 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #276) 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. In curating this podcast, we got the nagging feeling that April is a little slow on the local album release front. We're not sure why that is -- Festival fatigue?
