Indie pop will dominate the Milk Bar tomorrow night, with a headlining set by Street Joy out of Los Angeles. "Moon", a new track from Street Joy that will appear on their debut LP to be released this summer, just premiered on Billboard. Joining Street Joy will be a handful of locals, starting with Summer Peaks, whose recent album I wrote about earlier this year.

The Midnight Snackers – “Now I am Become Party”

Introducing themselves to the experimental lo-fi Bay Area scene (sharing space with the likes of Thee Oh Sees), the Midnight Snackers have emerged with their debut self-titled EP.
