John Vanderslice's "Romanian Names," Rickshaw Stop Release Party
Prolific San Francisco producer and pop singer/songwriter John Vanderslice's latest full-length album, Romanian Names, is out today, and NPR has the whole album available for streaming. John and band officially kicked off the tour last night with a free show at Amoeba, and will hold the album release party tonight at Rickshaw Stop with The Morning Benders (7:30 p.m., $16).
This is John's first album for the Dead Oceans label as well as the first album he started working on outside of Tiny Telephone, his recording studio in the Mission. As a bonus, here's a clip of John performing the album's title song for KEXP's Bay Area Broadcast.
