http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_January_2014.mp3 Download: Live This Month: January 2014 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #324) 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. As we mentioned several podcasts ago, The Magik*Magik Orchestra has been adding welcome orchestral layers to local indie artists' works for years. The orchestra's five years of work is being celebrated with a special concert at the Fox Theater this month, where they'll be joined by a bevy of great acts, including past collaborators How to Dress [...]

Live This Month: April 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #276)

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? Buildup for a big summer? -- but it's likely only a momentary blip. A number of exciting new Bay Area records are coming soon, and we're especially psyched about [...]

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 [...]

Video: Tennis, Eulogies at Hotel Utah 11/14

http://vimeo.com/16931703 That many people walked out of the Hotel Utah Sunday night without warm fuzzies, a Tennis 7" or two in hand, or the conclusion that he or she had just discovered their new "band to watch," is highly doubtful. It was packed to the brim with people excited to see Tennis' first San Francisco show, just as I had expected. For me, this meant finding a spot to sit on the floor down in front, limited to bobbing my head and no chance of cutting a rug. But behind me, I saw those little sardines swaying back and forth.

Sunday: There’s an indie pop band playing Hotel Utah? (yes, it’s Tennis)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cq4YaSyFeB8 We know the Hotel Utah is a confined space -- two-tiered with a cozy lower-stage below a micro version of the opera overhang. In turn, the venue appropriately books mellower performances, such as an open mic night or a variety of folk/Americana/singer-songwriter performers. Getting out of their expected casting, the Utah has lined up jubilant Denver surf pop band, Tennis for Sunday (9pm, $8). Might as well throw those loveless, impersonal large concert experiences out the door, and expect just enough space to bounce off the person next to you during the group's steadfast surf-rock medleys. Tennis has a [...]
