Smallpools Will Make Your Summer Better

Posted by xneverwherex on July 12, 2013

Im sure by this time everyone has already heard LA-based Smallpools single ‘Dreaming’. Its catchy, dance-y, fun and perfect music for a warm summer day. And while that song is really great – you should really check out ‘Mason Jar’. It might be even more catchy than their single. It reminds me of Local Natives crossed with pop-punk Thermals kind of sound. Its fun and it will make you definitely not want to be at work.

Theyre on tour currentlyand are opening for San Cisco at Slims in early August. Plus I recall their own date at Rickshaw Stop (Popscene). Personally, Id rather go to Slims – so guess it means another trip to the box office. Plus you can also find them at the Bowery Ballroom.

This is great music for your weekend! So enjoy!

Neck of the Woods w/The Hundred Days and Wild Cub

Posted by xneverwherex on July 5, 2013

Its not too often that I get out the word early to check out bands — but this set of bands is worth mentioning. Theyre playing at Neck of the Woods over on Clement Street. Ive yet to go, but considering the bands they get there – Im sure its worth it.

My new favorite band is The Hundred Days. Theyre catchy, dance-y and make a work day go by that much quicker. Theyre from SF and it seems theyve got a few dates around the bay including another date in Oakland at the end of August. But who wants to wait that long — as if the end of July isnt already far enough away.

Theyve got lots of good stuff on their facebook page – but prob better to go to their site to get a free download – http://www.thehundreddays.com/videos/

Wild Cub – the headliner of the set is getting quite a bit of press. They were at CMJ (NYC) last year and are raved about by the likes of Paste, CMJ, and even the Guardian (UK). Hard to go wrong with all these great bands. And their music makes you want to be outside on a beautiful summer day dancing and having a great time with friends.

Lots of their music is here – http://wildcub.bandcamp.com/
