Berkeley’s Street Eaters, just back in the Bay Area after a whirlwind US tour, are playing the Knockout in SF on Thursday to celebrate the release of their full length LP Rusty Eyes and Hydrocarbons! Playing a spastic blend of poppy and political punk rock – it’s going to be a performance that’s not to be missed! I can only imagine how on point this duo is going to be after a month of touring. So get yourself on down to the Knockout in SF and don’t forget to pick up a copy of the new LP!

I while back I had the pleasure of taking Street Eaters official press photos and I thought this would be a great place to showcase some of their favorites from the bunch! Photography like this is new to me and we had a LOT of fun running around Berkeley to get these shots.
It’s really great to have such creative, inspiring and supportive friends!
Do you love it as much as I do when you hear a song from a local band that just fills you with good feelings? I live for it! Music is so many different things to me and I get so many different things from it. But it is something extra special when I am filled with joy because of it! Shannon and the Clams have been able to do that for me over and over again.
Shannon and The Clams new album Sleep Talk will be released on April 5th on 1-2-3-4-Go! Records and from the sound of the first single it’s going to be a doozey!I’m not even the biggest fan of garage/surf rock but there is something here that has snagged a part of me and drawn me in. It’s more than likely the raw and emotive female vocals – that gets me every time! But really, there is so much more! It is thought out, fun, energizing and yet takes one back to a time…a time…well it could be any period of rock from the 50’s until now!
“The Clams provide a secret ingredient that bind together doo-wop, early rock and R&B, girl group classics, 60’s garage/psych, surf and glints of punk in a way that’s hard to get across in words.”
The Clams have criss-crossed the country touring playing with bands such as Thee Oh Sees, King Khan & BBQ, Nobunny, Harlem, Crocodiles, Fresh & Onlys, Happy Birthday, The Growlers and more and they somehow found time to record a new album. A really great new album!
These Bay Area native will be playing SF’s Noise Pop Festival for the first time at Bender’s Bar on February 25 for FREE! I want to see you there!

I’ve been granted permission from Jenny & Johnny’s distro to provide all of my readers with the download link to a track off of Jenny & Johnny’s album “I’m Having Fun Now” which comes out on August 31st! I’m so excited for this release! Rilo Kiley front woman Jenny Lewis’ first solo album Rabbit Fur Coat is one of my favorite albums of the last decade so I’m excited to hear more from her partnership with Johnathan Rice. For now I have the track ‘Animal’ off of the new album. And so do you!
For those of you in the Bay Area if you pick up the new album at Amoeba Music on 8/31 they will have a limited supply of Jenny & Johnny buttons for the first people who buy the record!
