Atlas Cafe celebrates 20 years with Young Moon, Paint the Trees White, dogs

Here's a list of things that are 20 years old: The Spice Girls' "Wannabe." The Atlanta Olympics. Nintendo 64. Victor Valle, when he started with us. Also? Atlas Cafe, one of the only purveyors of affordably priced, very tasty cafe fare on the west side of Potrero. They also host a multitude of local concerts — have since they opened — and, fittingly, they'll be celebrating their 20th birthday with a show hosting some of the best talent in the Bay Area. On deck is Young Moon, a Western Vinyl signee who makes layered and quite simply beautiful ballads, and [...]

Premiere: Young Moon finds personal renewal, growth on new album ‘Colt’

You don't need to know the backstory behind Young Moon's Colt to feel the themes of self-discovery and redemption that guide the album, which arrives this Friday, June 3, on Western Vinyl. Trevor Montgomery's voice and lyrics carry plenty of emotional weight, even before you learn that personal setbacks shortly after the release of the first Young Moon LP in 2012 led him to a two-year break from music, during which he focused instead on personal wellness through yoga and meditation. But don't get the wrong idea about Colt: it's not an album of background music for yoga sessions, although [...]

Mixtape: Singer-Songwriters of the San Francisco Bay Area (Podcast #293)

Mixtape: Singer-Songwriters of the San Francisco Bay Area (Podcast #293) With its rich history of folk musicians and lyrical rockers, the Bay Area has long been a source of terrific singer-songwriters. Even today, while much of the buzz around local musicians focuses on some of our weirder (or, perhaps, more "now") rock subgenres, there continue to be numerous talented folks crafting lyrically-rich, deeply personal music. For some reason, 2012 seems like an especially strong year for local songwriters, with well-received new albums this year from beloved veterans like Mark Eitzel and Mark Kozelek's Sun Kil Moon, as well as newer [...]

Live This Month: August 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #284)

Live This Month: August 2012 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #284) 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. August means the return of the Outside Lands Festival, the latest installment of which deftly balances the expected big name headliners with a healthy serving of compelling indie artists. There are certainly plenty of good options to keep attendees satisfied all weekend long, but if you're considering a single day ticket, we'd recommend skipping work on Friday, as opening [...]

Young Moon – "Winds Light"

Much of the press surrounding SF-based Young Moon's forthcoming release, Navigated Like the Swan (due July 24 on Western Vinyl), makes sure to note that Trevor Montgomery, the man behind the band, was influenced by John Hughes movies. Indeed, it's hard to find fault with this writer, who pictures a Hughes-esque, contemplative, soul-searching montage when listening to Young Moon's lead single, "Winds Light." I hear that. I also hear Tunnel of Love-era Springsteen — especially in Montgomery's deep baritone, which, if his bio is any indication, I imagine became coarse over a series of wild years. "Montgomery's previous album The Trickster (St. Ives) [...]
