Rich Girls to play debut show at the Make-Out Room

Review: The Blacks @ The Rickshaw Stop, 6/18

Photos by: Julie Schuchard Yes indie'd a sincere, sweaty performance out of your SF-based The Blacks. Also a CD release but yes, idie'd again (and proud of ourselves and clever as a left-handed skyhook from Pixar, that is, [look Up] a metanym for "snipehunt"?) our The Blacks, America's The Blacks and their buttons made of irony say with no emoticons "We [heart] The Blacks": Perhaps a discussion lay in the cards about such an eponymous flirtation with, or stab at, art--art as cultural effrontery--but keep in mind this here review comes from a guy who knows not whether any of [...]

The Blacks Call It a Day with Tiger Songs

It breaks my heart to report word from Tricycle Records that San Francisco-New York trio The Blacks are breaking up, with a farewell performance at the Rickshaw Stop on Thursday, June 18th. Making the final show extra bittersweet, it'll also double as the "guitar noir" band's record release party for their second album, Tiger Songs. The Blacks - "Ammunition" (from Tiger Songs) Knowing the band's electrified live show, their final performance is sure to be more wake than funeral. To that end, the group promises "the biggest tambourine experiment yet"--referring to their mayhem-fueling habit of distributing tambourines to [...]
