BRNDA gets "serious" in their new single and will play a home show at Above The Bayou 6/15

Stop goofing around. You may know BRNDA as that friendly post-punk quartet that likes blowing up balloons, singing to apple queens and carefree manatees, and parrot fronted metal, but they can totally beat you up (ok, or give you a stern talking to). These self-proclaimed snack core rockers are “a serious band from Washington DC”. If you don’t believe me, listen to their latest single “Serious Band”, in which they make this themesong-like claim maybe 20 times. If you’re wondering, why so serious? Well they also claim to be quite angry! Why so angry? They yell out “Alex Kozen!” (the group’s vocalist/guitarist) a few times. We’re not exactly sure what that guy did, but theoretically there are plenty of reasons to be angry at any given moment in the life of an ethically aware human being. Ease up, these buds have been on a super tour with Teen Mom but they’ll be back to play a home show at Above The Bayou on 6/15 with Pupppy, O-Face, and Swings.

Huge Cosmic @ the Cavern

Two men, a galaxy of sound. From jazz-fusion to electronic fuzz-rock and back, Huge Cosmic is who you call for ambience and acuity. With songs called “Let’s Talk About The Weather” and “Interviewed By Nardwuar”, the eclectic and electric nature of the band is accepted and accentuated by the energy and intelligence of the music. “Weather” is a prime example of their blending influences and minds. Between the notes of the vocal melody is where the chops of the two take over, switching from tight progressive groove into serene rock’n’roll walls of sound and back again. Serious music listeners would take care to take notice, and keep their eyes peeled. Huge Cosmic is bringing their experimental sound to the Cavern on Saturday, May 30th, so get yourself in front of that stage.-Cody Wright

The She's Union Pacific and Dazeys Play Rickshaw Stop - 6/3

Counter Culture and POW Magazine present the Nevada City, CA (we have no idea where that is) based electro-lullaby music group, Dazeys, who are set to support a couple of great San Francisco based bands next week at Rickshaw Stop on Wednesday, June 3rd. Band buddies (bands that know each other well and tend to share bills together when they can) The She's and Union Pacific will be filling out the rest of the bill to play a comfortingly familiar local show. With all the changes going on in the Bay Area music and art scene, it's nice to see bands being consistent and supporting local venues.

We need local bands to continue to play local venues just as much as we appreciate touring bands coming into town to join our local shows and line ups. Do your best to show up, dance around and support this show!
