A brief, out-of-context snippet of RAYS, performing live at the Eagle Tavern in San Francisco, February 16th 2017. A fantastic band – far & away my local favorite in a “scene” w/ more than a few winners.
Album’s coming out at the end of March on Trouble in Mind.
LITHICS, absolutely killing it last night at the Eagle in San Francisco. (9-8-2016). Almost snuck in their van to stow away for the rest of their mini-tour.
I wrote up a piece on this deranged earworm on my other blog. It features a Q&A with Grady Runyan, a man partially responsible for “popularizing” this song 25 years ago.

Outstanding less-than-primitive, ultra-minimalist garage from Rob Vasquez & THE MAN-TEE-MANS in 1996.
My favorite band in San Francisco around 2001-03 was NUMBERS, by a mile. Such a blast. Here’s a video of them that just surfaced to my attention, from March 2002. Watch the kids go bananas.
8 seconds of CCTV, who very much lived up to the hype last night in San Francisco.
Last night at Hella Vegan Eats. Rakta!
RAKTA live last night in Oakland. Wow.
My cellular telephone captured thirty seconds of THE LAMPS playing Teddy & The Frat Girls’ “I Owe It To The Girls” this past Friday at The Echo in Los Angeles.
I wept openly.
Fantastic bit of late 70s Jamaican dub creation in real time here from Bunny Lee. Stumbled onto this one today.
