The first edition of the MUSH concert series, by BFF.fm, features artists who represent Oakland’s diverse indie music scene. The first of four free concerts takes place on May 9th, 6:30pm – 9pm. The concert series then continues every other Thursday through June at the same time. While the bands jam away on the Marina Lawn near Jack London Square, the surrounding area will take on the feel of an open air, spring market; with grab-and-go food from local restaurants, a beer and wine bar, and Bay Area underground artists and crafters selling their wares. It should be fun.
Same Girls: All friends and all Bay Area natives, the band reflects on the striking shift in their lives and their surroundings through their songs. Drawing inspiration from classic movements, like Motown and Grunge, and playing with 21st century sensibility, the Oakland-based act has created an idiosyncratic sound that remains familiar to casual and passionate listeners alike.
Samplelov: Caitlyn Lopez, aka Samplelov, plays a cross between bedroom pop and alt rock, but her sound is always changing. She’s a sucker for house, hip hop and jazz, and try to incorporate elements of those genres into her work.
May 9th, 23rd, June 6th & 20th, 6:30pm – 9pm
