The Deli Magazine San Francisco Presents: Modern Man Buzzmutt and Baus at DNA Lounge - 4/18

As you may or may have not heard, The Deli Magazine San Francisco is spearheading a series of shows at the DNA Lounge. For the very first show (after our Riot Grrrl party we threw at SUB/Mission in February) April 18, we've got an excellent lineup of local bands consisting of Modern Man, Buzzmutt and Baus.

Baus is an Oakland band that made waves last month with the release of their first full-length, Idol Minds. The band blends elements of post-punk and no wave to create truly jagged and abrasive tunes. Buzzmutt is a band from San Francisco wh playing psych-tinged noise rock. And headlining is Modern Man, an Oakland-based band that weaves together drudgingly dark shoegaze. Last year the band came out with an awesome tape entitled, Small Waves.

The choice is yours: Do you want to come and celebrate a new era of The Deli Magazine San Francisco and local music, or do you want to stay at home? -Erin Dage


CCR Headcleaner Marriage + Cancer Stillsuit and Baus Perform at The Night Light in Oakland TONIGHT

Tonight CCR Headcleaner, Marriage + Cancer, Stillsuit and Baus will be coming together for a show at the Night Light in Oakland. Baus is an Oakland-based band with a sound that’s derivative of no-wave and post-punk. This month they released their debut LP, Idol MindsStillsuit is a self-proclaimed experimental band from Oakland. Their music is decidedly noise rock with abrasive vocals and jagged guitar riffs.

Portland-based pissed pop band Marriage + Cancer is in town for their second Bay Area and has been supported by great local bands for both events. Known for their reverb-laden vocals and up-tempo riffs, this band is not to be missed as they make their way through California. CCR Headcleaner wages and aural assault on unsuspecting ears. The Bay Area band is loud, sludgy and chaotic. Their most recent release is a split EP alongside Ty Segall's side project, Fuzz, for the Less Artists More Condos 7 inch series. - Erin Dage

Street Eaters and Baus Support Ultra Bide at The Knockout TONIGHT

Some bands need four or five people to create a wall of sound. But when it comes to Street Eaters, a truewave East Bay punk band, there are only two people needed to create a full, enveloping sound. With Meagan March on drums and John No on bass, this husband and wife duo takes an approach similar to that of The Evens - Ian Mackaye’s and Amy Farina’s project. By splitting the duties 50/50, Street Eaters posseses post-punk sensibilities and riot grrrrl influences.

Baus is an Oakland-based trio with a sound that’s derivative of no-wave and post-punk. In true no-wave style, Baus makes music that is not consistent with any solid music genre. Employing noisy vocals and guitar, amidst funk-influenced drum stylings the band creates music that cannot be weighed down by the expectations or cliches of a set genre.

Many punk bands lose their “bite” after a while. But this isn’t the case for Ultra Bide, a Japanese band that blends elements of noise rock and post-hardcore. Getting their start in 1978, they still haven’t gotten rid of their aggressive and primal nature that made them so popular in the first place. Last year they released “DNA vs. DNA-c” on longstanding Bay Area label, Alternative Tentacles.

Be sure to check out Ultra Bide, Street Eaters, and Baus at the Knockout tonight. -Erin Dage
