BLISSES B “Folk/psychedelic/alt-rock quartet Blisses B have a new LP out, one full of bouncy melodies, undaunted optimism, and dance-inducing rhythms. Entitled Sea Level Astronomy, the band was inspired by the realization of how seemingly limited perspectives, like an observatory placed at sea level, have the potential to achieve great things, like discovering a Jupiter-sized planet. It is this belief in the overlooked power of perspective that drives the positive energy pulsating throughout the record. From the funky eponymous track…

Cool Ghouls, Stucko, The Nopes, Hazel’s Wart

Hemlock Tavern,

COOL GHOULS “The Cool Ghouls’ sound is totally 60s, driven by twangy six- and twelve-string guitars with the reverb-heavy, fast-decaying tone that defined the pre-Marshall Stack era. The name is a misnomer; they’re not really ghoulish at all. What sets them apart from the legions of garage rock clones is how cleverly they mash up familiar riffs with original tunes. Sure, there’s plenty of Beatles, and Byrds, and a little Stones, and maybe even Van Morrison’s Them in their songs,…

Jealousy, Mike Donovan (Sic Alps), J. Flowers (of CCR Headcleaner)

Monday, May 9 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States
+ Google Map

The second LP from Jealousy ‘Paid For It’ is a hyper-tactile, hyper-sensual meditation on solipsism brought on by shattered idealism and sensory overload. Songwriter, lyricist, bassist, sound manipulator, and sole member Mark Treise seems unable to stop himself from steeping in the lurid and the lascivious, in masochistic discomfort and hedonistic gratuitousness, to consider the value of self-destruction as a vessel for self-actualization, to approve knowingly of his own defeat in order to transcend it’s redundancy. Paid For It oscillates…

SOAR is Shannon, Jenna, Rebecca, and Mai. We four met on an internet dating website. It was quickly decided that we were better off as a band than anything with romantic intentions.

ALINA BEA is fronted by Alina Cutrono, joined by Theo Karon, Geoff Halliday, & Brijesh Pandya who continue…

CROSS RECORD Two years ago, Emily Cross decamped from Chicago to the remote, idyllic town of Dripping Springs, TX with her husband, Dan Duszynski, who together form Cross Record. They rented a ranch that covers 18 acres, has a chicken coop and is located next to a bird sanctuary. Between 60-hour workweeks at restaurants, supermarkets, and nannying, she composed an album that absorbs any workaday commonalities and shaped them into her smoky, atmospheric and gripping second album, Wabi-Sabi. Recorded throughout…

M. Lockwood Porter, We Arsons, Angelica Rockne (Nevada City)

Saturday, May 14 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
Hemlock Tavern,
1131 Polk St. , San Francisco, CA 94109 United States
+ Google Map

M. LOCKWOOD PORTER’s songs toe the line between country-tinged Americana and straight-up rock-and-roll, with poetic storytelling front and center. A SF Bay Area transplant from rural Oklahoma, Porter’s sound recalls his birthplace and a childhood spent exploring the far reaches of the rock canon. The result is something close to timeless – reminiscent at times of Neil Young, Wilco, Ryan Adams, and Bruce Springsteen. WE ARSONS is an alternative folk four piece from San Francisco featuring Mike Ballan on vocals…
