Wild Moth release “Buried” video

  Wild Moth. Photo: Anna Capurso Stop-motion implies a process. It's hard to watch anything stop-motion and not spin off into thinking about how tedious it probably felt to make. Take a picture, move the things, take a picture, move the things. But, because Wild Moth's "Buried" video is actually a bunch of pictures, it's also kind of impossible to tell how long it took to make. Or maybe this is a better way of putting it: The claymation-video-dreamscape has a sense of time that's freed from the actual length of the video. If the fluidity of film is for watching, it almost feels [...]

Makthaverskan, Wild Moth, and Never Young at Thee Parkside next week

Makthaverskan (Photo: Hilda Randulv) Sweden's Makthaverskan bring their sound to San Francisco on their fall North American tour with a stop at Thee Parkside on Friday, October 2. Formed in 2009, Makthaverskan has come out with two full-length releases on Sweden's Luxury Records. The band has since then encountered rising attention in the US, notably due to the band's laudable female-lead vocals infused with a distinct pop and post-punk touch. Featuring local acts Wild Moth and Never Young to open up the evening, the show offers a variety of up and coming artists not only from the other side of [...]

Bay Area punk heavyweights Wild Moth celebrate the release of 2nd LP ‘Inhibitor’

(Record Release flier by Carlos Salas) In late 2011 three friends who'd never made music together started working on what would become Wild Moth, a driving, jangly, post-punk band with infectious songs and distinctive aesthetic. In the four years since, they've expanded their lineup, released over 30 songs, toured the West Coast extensively, and made brief stops around the rest of the States. Unlike the dark, lead-driven post-punk the Bay is known for, Wild Moth's sound is anchored on big chords, and upbeat rhythms - a unique style that's made them one of the most recognizable names in the thriving Bay [...]

Live This Month: September 2015 — an audio guide to upcoming SF concerts

http://media.libsyn.com/media/thebaybridged/LTM_September_2015.mp3 Download: Live This Month: September 2015 (Podcast #370) 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. How has it taken this long to include Chelsea Wolfe in one of our podcasts? Wolfe started out in Sacramento before relocating to LA, and over the course of four albums has defined a unique mix of heavy doom and gothic folk. "Iron Moon" comes from her new album, Abyss, and it highlights both sides of her sound very well. Speaking of Sacramento, our state capital [...]

Wild Moth announces TWO tours; playing gigs at Thee Parkside and 1-2-3-4 Go!

(Photo Credit: Alexander Young) Wild Moth just announced two tours, one in support of their recently released split with fellow Bay Area post-punk band Creative Adult, and the other presumably in anticipation of a new record. The first is a West Coast tour in late March with Hollow Sunshine, a fuzzy California rock group who will have just released their LP Bring Gold. They'll be performing at Thee Parkside in San Francisco on March 26 as part of this tour. The second tour takes them through the Southwest, where they'll be joining Whirr (self declared best band in the world) for [...]

Interview: Ex Hex’s Mary Timony talks ‘Rips’, growing up, and ’80s power pop

Ex Hex (Photo by Jonah Takagi) “Before Ex Hex started, I had never really thought about making a song that was under two minutes long,” Mary Timony remembers. Considering her sprawling history collaborating with musicians all over varying rock subgenres, that’s saying a lot. Since breaking out in bands like Helium, Autoclave, and Wild Flag (along with Sleater-Kinney alum Carrie Brownstein), the gutsy rock luminary has turned her focus to a grunge-lined power pop. That music necessitates a certain brevity. “For the songs that I wrote, I was thinking about the music that I loved when I was 12 years [...]

Perfect Pussy shines on a shared bill with Potty Mouth

(Photos by Daniel Kielman) After being forced to cancel their previous engagement at Rickshaw Stop, Perfect Pussy graced San Francisco with a delayed return last night, co-headlining a U.S. tour with Potty Mouth. Local bands Wild Moth and Crabapple rounded out the bill, bringing an end to the holiday weekend. Crabapple was the mellowest set of the night, opening with an enjoyable set of California pop. SF post-puck quartet Wild Moth, who had filled in the headlining spot for the partially cancelled March show, performed highlights from their Over, Again debut in addition to new material. While the band seemed [...]

Seattle’s FF plays Thee Parkside with Wild Moth, Mane, Commodity

Seattle's FF is coming to town April 26 at Thee Parkside with local bands Wild Moth, Mane and Commodity in tow. The Northwestern group is sure to deliver pummeling noise punk, ripe with comparisons to Daydream Nation-era Sonic Youth. Be sure to listen to the track, "Caught in a Dream". The band rips its way through the nearly three-minute track, with a perfect amount of distortion, melody, and restlessness. FF by FF But back to what The Bay Bridged is all about: Local music. Post-punk band Wild Moth is headlining the show. Last year, the band's album - Over, Again [...]

Perfect Pussy forced to cancel for tonight’s TBB Presents gig; show goes on…for FREE

Late last night, we learned that our favorite upstate New York punk outfit Perfect Pussy unfortunately had to cancel their performance at tonight's The Bay Bridged Presents show at Rickshaw Stop due to an emergency medical situation with a band member. Fortunately, the fine folks at the Rickshaw and here at TBB were able to bring on Pure Bliss to round out the lineup with Wild Moth and Happy Diving, and the show will go on...for FREE!!! That's right, all purchased tickets for tonight's show will be refunded in full, but we're still throwing quite the party with three great [...]

The Bay Bridged Presents: Perfect Pussy, Wild Moth, Happy Diving @ Rickshaw Stop, 3/21/14

Those who are faint of heart should probably stay away from this one. Those who fancy themselves bold and enlightened enough to appreciate all types of music no matter its level of sonic density or blatant vulgarity- remember to at least bring a pair of earplugs. If there is one thing Perfect Pussy definitely isn't, it's subtle.  For all the kids out there too young to remember what real punk rock sounds like (not the easily packageable, corporately hijacked form that dominated radio stations and record charts in the '90s), a quick listen to the band's four-track demo tape exemplifies the genre [...]
