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).

SF's John Vanderslice takes 'Names,' kicks out a new CD

John Vanderslice just might be one of the less-appreciated natural resources in the city’s indie scene. The man is whip-smart, writes a mean pop song, crafts a complex lyric, and runs the gritty-fabulous Tiny Telephone, the all-analog decade-old recording studio at the bubbling borderlands of Potrero Hill, the Mission, and the 101-280 interchange (a neighbor for years with the internationally renowned, blow-‘em-up-real-good DIY-robotics crew of Survival Research Laboratories).
