It will be $15 for advanced tickets and $20 for door. This festival is an all ages event.

"Greg (from Los Angeles band Crescendo and I became friends and started talking about doing festival-style shows in LA/SF highlighting our favorite local dreampop / shoegaze / post-punk-ish bands. There's been a lot of really cool new bands coming out of both cities, so over all it was really easy to get everyone together and excited about it. There is still an amazing group of creative people living here, being cool as hell and making rad art/music." -Jared Padovani of Balms

The Roofer's Union to play Knitting Factory on 9.14

There's a certain light-heartedness to the experimental music of Brooklyn based indie-rockers The Roofer's Union whose debut full-length album, 'By Degrees,' was released just last year. On the record, the group blends elements of psych-rock, surf rock, and, occasionally, hip-hop ("Godzilla Does Dallas") into 40 minutes of infectious indie rock that's rife with sparkling synths, bright guitars, and eccentric lyrics. Their willingness to experiment with a variety of genre and instrumental combinations results in a unique sound and a solid debut that really sets them apart. "Man Kills God, Man Creates Dinosaur (streaming below)" is one of the stand-out tracks from the album, complete with catchy vocal and guitar melodies, synth hooks that fit just right, and a beat that'll have you tapping your foot the whole way through. You can catch The Roofer's Union on September 14 when they'll be playing at Knitting Factory. Don't miss out! - Patrick Wolff


Brooklyn rockers share ‘Member’ music video, play several local shows, and perform at The Deli’s CMJ Showcase on 10.15

Back in May, Brooklyn dream rock quartet Whitewash played several shows around the release of its latest album, ‘Shibboleth.’ Now, the NYU-formed band shares the deliriously amusing music video (streaming below) for the song “Member” off the release (their first studio LP). Playing like a buddy stoner comedy, the clip shows group members Evan Glazman and Aram Demirdjian being chased by security guards (played by bandmates Sam Thornton and Jonathan Ben-Menachem) around the city, photo-bombing a tourist’s picture, and then sitting down robot-like to a meal with their pursuers. Whitewash has several shows coming up: tomorrow (8.26) at Silent Barn with What Moon Things, Turnip King, The Due Diligence; Monday 8.31 at Trans Pecos via Summer’s End Fest with Friend Roulette, Altopalo, Human People, Old English System; Saturday 9.5 at Elvis Guesthouse via No Smoking Media with Raccoon Fighter, Shana Falana; and Tuesday 9.15 at Baby’s All Right via Popgun Presents with Diane Coffee and the Lemon Twigs. Whitewash will also play The Deli’s CMJ showcase on Thursday 10.15 at Muchmore’s. – Zach Weg



New Music Video: "The Dark Heart's Out" - Hezekiah Jones

Below is an odd, new Jessica Fletcher/Angela Lansbury-centric music video from Hezekiah Jones for the the single, "The Dark Heart's Out." The track will appear on his upcoming album In Loving Memory of oosi Lockjaw, which is due out November 13 via Woodfarm Records. He'll be celebrating its release on Saturday, November 14 at Ardmore Music Hall. (Photo by Lisa Schaffer)


Kid Bloom release video for track "Annalise", plays Silverlake Lounge on 9/8

A slithering guitar lead is the first you notice about recent Emerging Artists winners Kid Bloom's latest single "Annalise". Built around a warped blues composition, the five-piece play around with a crafty, atypical time signature over Lennon Kloser's impassioned vocal deliery before it goes into a full-on power-pop coda. The video for the track was directed by movie star Gary Oldman, who provides a no bells-and-whistles approach by giving it the simple treatment of emulating the band's visceral essence in a live setting. 

Kid Bloom are playing a headlining show at Silverlake Lounge on Tuesday, September the 8th. - Juan Rodríguez
