Editors’ Picks: What We’ve Been Listening to This Week (Vetiver, Owen, Hausu, Tony Molina)

Andy Cabic of Vetiver Anna: Yesterday's news that DOMA was declared unconstitutional and the US District Court's ruling overturning Prop 8 would stand had me grinning from ear to ear all day long. I couldn't bear to listen to anything that was not as happy and bright as my mood, so I turned to my default "Case of the Happies" playlist and found myself hitting repeat on Vetiver's "Can't You Tell." If I remember correctly, "Can't You Tell" was the first song released for 2011's The Errant Charm, and it makes me feel just as warm and wonderful as it [...]

Vetiver, Howlin' Rain share the stage for New Year's Eve!

Those who prefer a little – or, more realistically, a whole lot -- of retro rock ‘n’ roll with their New Year’s Eve celebration can head on out to Café du Nord on New Year’s Eve to check out two San Francisco rock ‘n’ roll powerhouses, Vetiver and Howlin’ Rain. The show, said to be born out of a “mutual musical admiration” between the bands, will start at 9:30 and go straight on ‘til morning. If you’ve already made NYE plans, never fear – they’ve secured a three-night string of shows together at Cafe du Nord starting the 28th (skipping [...]

Live This Month: January 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #268)

Live This Month: January 2012 (Podcast #268) 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. If the beginning of January feels a little slim on the live music front, things should ramp back up into the usual overwhelming number of interesting shows by the month's end. Several young local bands recently came onto our radar -- including Churches, Poor Sons, and Primitive Hearts -- and they're all partaking in locals-heavy bills in the next few weeks. On the coming-into-town front, it seems that, [...]
