SF Station Blows It Up

With the roar of the crowd and the beat of the drum the Artic Monkeys hit the stage at the San Francisco’s famed Warfield. These kids from Sheffield, England are the talk of the music world, with their simple lyrics and infectious instruments. This night was no different -- kids screamed and the Monkeys played. I personally can't relate to the lyrics but understand why others can so that’s why these kids are a band to watch in the coming years. More »

Walking into 330 Ritch on any Thursday night is to indulge yourself in rock, punk, indie or just plain good music. On this night a band called Elephone was performing for the CD release of [b]The Camera Behind The Camera Behind The Camera[/b]. I will say I was not disappointed, these guys rocked the house with a sound that mixes My Bloody Valentine with U2 (pre "WAR"), and some other stuff that I can't put my finger on. With haunting vocals and driving guitar these guys are on my go to list. More »

The Fillmore played host to The Fiery Furnaces on this warm night in San Francisco. The crowd was made up of hipster kids with their cool hair and slick cloths, and people that were dressed in full masquerade garb. Standing in the middle of this crowd I had a feeling this might be good one and I have to admit that it was. With their dashes of folk, garage rock and a heavy European sound, they opened my eyes and ears and made me get lost in their lyrics. More »

On Monday night I had the opportunity to photograph and watch Brooklyn-based Ratatat with the rest of the sold out crowd at The Fillmore. A very strange pre-opening band called E*Rock was entertaining for a few seconds then Panther, who I thought was great, brought their own brand of electro rock. But the light definitely shined on Ratatat who started out pretty mellow and built up to some intense visuals and killer beats. They played songs from their new XL recordings release [b]LP3[/b]. More »

On my one night off I decided to go and check out the legendary Lee Scratch Perry at the Indie last Friday night and, man, did I get an interesting show. The opening band, Heavyweight Dub Champion, was pretty damn good; the group's perfect, crazy heavy dub step just drove me into the ground. And Lee is out of his mind, but can still rock a crowd. He rambled on about Asian exercise and pussy (well a papier-mâché cat, that is) and was still able to drop some great beats and lyrics. More »

Outside Lands, the biggest music event of the Year for San Francisco, hit Golden Gate Park last week and I was there for all 3 days capturing all the great music, art and craziness. With huge bands like Radiohead, Tom Petty and Jack Johnson headlining the main stage and amazing artists like Beck, Wilco, Cold War Kids, K’Naan, The Walkman, Broken Social Scene, local boys Two Gallants and dozens more acts playing the other stages it was something to behold. More »

For many years the Vans Warped Tour has been a staple in discovering great punk and rock artists and this year was no different with Katy Perry to the Horrorpops. On Friday August 15th, I got to check it all out; it was something to see with a line that wrapped around the venue at 11am just to get in. With bands like Rise Against/Against Me, Gym Class Heroes, Reliant K and many more rocking the main stage and some great seminal punk acts playing on the old school stage it was a great day. More »

Last Thursday night KMEL threw a little block party and invited some close friends to entertain the guests. I was in the in crowd and got a chance to have some fun…With a line-up like Lloyd, The Dream, Trey Songs, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, Young Jeezy and T-Pain rocking this sold out show, it was something to see. From Ne-Yo’s smooth and sexy tunes that made the girls faint to Young Jeezy's surprise appearance which made the 11k+ crowd get out of their seats, this was a hell of a show. More »

When I found out that Dolly Parton was in town, there was no way I would miss it. Once the queen of country hit the stage, she ran around in heels and rhinestones and belted out amazing tunes, even doing a rendition of "Jolene" that made me sing along. All this was to promote her new album [b]Backwoods Barbie[/b], her first mainstream country record in 17 years. I would advice every aspiring singer should look at Dolly and learn. More »

Last Saturday Live Nation brought us the 3rd installment of the Download Festival and although the crowds were thin all the bands most definitely brought it. My day started with The Duke Spirit and ended with Jesus and Mary Chain and, man, did I have fun! But I will say my highlight was Gang of Four who still know how to stop a stage and drive a crowd into a frenzy. Look out for a new album from the boys in the new year. More »
