Sponsored: Ty Segall comes home to The UC (not that he really left)

If you're hanging out on The Bay Bridged, there's not much we can tell you about Ty Segall that you don't already know or won't agree with. SF legend? Yes. Leader of the pack in the Bay Area psych movement in the mid-00s? Also that. Helped to launch the career of fellow fuzz rocker and his band member Mikal Cronin? That too. An immensely talented multi-instrumentalist and producer that can kind of do no wrong? Obviously. He's no longer ours — he moved to LA years ago — but we still claim his as our own every chance we get. [...]

Photos+ Review: Ty Segall at Refuge Christian Fellowship

Ty Segall (photo: Estefany Gonzalez) Unless you were one of those kids, you probably hated going to church as much as I did. It was impossible for my over-stimulated brain to keep my sugar-saturated body still for two hours, even with my hip Methodist pastor dropping hip cultural references like "I'm the king of the world!" or "Show me the money!" (Guys, the '90s were so long ago.) If I was lucky, I'd get to drink some actual wine during communion. But for the most part, I just wanted to rip my tie off and play video games. Now, if our [...]

Ty Segall and Shannon Lay supporting OCS for Chapel residency

A few of California's favorite psych rockers are returning to their old San Francisco stomping grounds for a decidedly less rowdy affair than we've come to expect from the likes of these seasoned shredders. Ty Segall and Shannon Lay will support Phono del Sol veterans OCS (a.k.a. Oh Sees, f.k.a. Thee Oh Sees) for a two-night residency at the Chapel on December 17 and 18. The pair of "mellow, quiet" shows will benefit the Coalition on Homelessness, so come on out and support the cause. Ty Segall will perform a solo acoustic set, while the OCS lineup will feature John [...]

Mixtape: Stellar Musicians with Bay Area Roots Download: Mixtape: Stellar Musicians with Bay Area Roots (Podcast #403) This episode first appeared on We showcase a ton of new and emerging Bay Area bands on these mixtapes every month, but have far fewer opportunities to revisit artists after they move away from the region. In this mixtape, we catch up with eleven acts with Bay Area roots, including Harriet Brown, who grew up in the Bay Area before heading to LA, where he's now poised to have a breakout year.

Noise Pop: Ty Segall closes out the festival at The Fox

Ty Segall (photo: Jon Ching) Tuesday night saw the end of the 2017 Noise Pop festival, and it couldn't be more fitting for the final act to be none other than prolific garage rocker Ty Segall at the Fox Theater. They weren't the only Bay Area-related band that night, with support from Shannon and the Clams. Jon Ching was there to photograph the madcap night and you can check out his gallery of some of the action below.

LA Bridged: Panache Booking’s Village of Love benefit celebrates intersections of activism and LA music

Entrance at Village of Love, February 14, 2017 It's 9:00, exactly 50 minutes after I lapped the Teragram Ballroom for the first time. Nearly an hour and exactly $13 later, I finally approach the show I've circled the streets of LA to see, and perhaps unlike exorbitant parking fees near downtown, I know the money being raised at tonight's Panache Booking Village of Love Valentine's Day extravaganza is going to a good cause: Planned Parenthood. Something about the venue felt cavernous, and after wandering through a dark hallway, I ended up at the stage, where my valentine for the evening was [...]
