Local Beer and Bands Join Forces at The Bay Brewed Festival

When it comes to microbrew and music, SF has long been a pacesetter for the rest of the nation. Plenty of brewers head to clubs in their off-hours, and everyone knows musicians can't resist a pint (or five), but the two industries haven't joined forces much-- until now. Popular music blog The Bay Bridged is bringing together four local bands and nine NorCal breweries for an all-day extravaganza at the Verdi Club this Saturday, with unlimited sampling and unlimited rocking out.

Listen Up: Bonnaroo's Greatest Leftovers Hit SF

Those of us who trekked all the way to Manchester, Tennessee last week for Bonnaroo know that choosing between 100+ artists surely isn't easy. Couldn’t catch Grizzly Bear because you were shaking your booty to Santigold? No worries, some of Bonnaroo’s greatest leftovers are stopping by for a visit.

Sleepy Sun, Great American Music Hall, 6/19: This local sextet has been generating tons of buzz on the blog circuit for their raw, high-energy rock sound. Disclaimer for first timers: make sure you know the standard call and return at every Sleepy Sun show, “Let’s get weird.” It’s shouted loud and proud by avid fans, and trust us, the show will probably be just that.

Sleepy Sun Wakes Up Bottom of the Hill

Sitting through three opening bands in anticipation of a show’s main act shouldn’t be a chore, as it was at last night’s Noise Pop show at Bottom of the Hill. Ears ringing and head spinning after Kings & Queens and Dallas-based True Widow, local act the Lumerians saved the audience from calling it an early night with their organ-laden psych-synth sound and bongo beats—the perfect foreplay to Sleepy Sun’s power performance. 

Sit Down with Noise Pop Darlings, Sleepy Sun

Sleepy Sun, who've already been picked up by the indie music hype machine, are poised to become one of the darlings of this year's Noise Pop festival.   We ventured to their Outer Sunset apartment yesterday to catch up with the five guys (minus Rachel) and talk music, inspiration and cats (they have a surprising fascination with cats).
