Stream The Ferocious Few’s new album

SF duo The Ferocious Few are one of the most kinetic bands in the Bay Area, regardless of whether they're performing at a club or on a street corner. I'm not exactly sure where they get their energy, or how they sustain it. Right before the band started playing at the Bay Area Takeover, for example, Francisco mentioned that they'd spent the previous day playing for eight hours on Austin's streets. That drive is an indicator both of the duo's commitment to getting their name out there and a pure love of performance that comes through in every set. But [...]

Noise Pop 2010: The Mumlers, The Growlers, Sonny and the Sunsets, The Ferocious Few @ Cafe du Nord

Written by Todd Wanerman Noise Pop’s Friday night roster posed some maddeningly appealing choices. Some members of our usual research team opted to check out Atlas Sound etc. at the Great American, arguing that it offered the promising new talent that the festival excels in. I and several of my familiars could not resist The Mumlers, The Growlers, Sonny and the Sunsets and The Ferocious Few at Café du Nord. True, I have seen the three local acts on the bill many times. But the prospect of all three of them together, with a fourth act fresh off of touring [...]

The Ferocious Few, MonBon, Can’t Find a Villain @ Elbo Room, 1/6

Humpday came and went, but the Elbo Room was full of great music Wednesday as people enjoyed a mild winter night in the Mission District with The Ferocious Few, MonBon, and Can't Find a Villain. The Ferocious Few played an early set, demonstrating in the process why these guys are consistently one of the most impressive bands on the local circuit. They seem to be moving in a more bluesy direction as of late, letting Francisco's vocal talents and Daniel's amazing drum skills take a more prominent role. With stage presence and songwriting firing on all cylinders, I expect that [...]
