As South by Southwest approaches later in March, bands are hitting the road, crisscrossing the US before converging on Austin. What this means for Bay Area music fans is a ton of buzz-backed touring bands will stop in SF, and equally promising locals will play a few final shows before heading out on the road. Enjoy this mix and then go check out some shows!
About the bands:
SF's Nodzzz ("Time [What's It Going to Do]") is about to head out on a European tour with The Mantles. Before that, the band will be at The Knockout on March 2 with Personal & The Pizzas and Tim Cohen's Magic Trick. [Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to publish this podcast in time for this show. Sorry.]
OC/LA/SF band Moonhearts ("I Said") are one of the many great garage bands playing at the Burger Boogaloo festival later this month. Catch them at El Rincon on March 25 with Strange Boys, Ty Segall and many more.
Toro Y Moi's ("Still Sound") new album, Underneath the Pine, is receiving widespread critical acclaim. Chaz Bundick and band will be at the Great American Music Hall on March 24, with Cloud Nothings supporting.
Oakland's Jordan Dalrymple ("Subtle/13 & God") is about to release his debut album as Antonionian ("Into the Night"). He'll be joined by fellow Anticon collective members Doseone and Jel at the Rickshaw Stop on March 23.
