SF Station Blows It Up

1. Kathleen Hanna, vocals of Le Tigre, live on stage San Jose Civic Auditorium, July 12, 2005


With a mixture of electro, new wave and rock Le Tigre is kicking ass and taking names. These three chicks from NYC are pretty damn fun to watch live with crazy outfits and a burlesque-like interaction on stage. Kathleen Hanna, Johanna Fateman, and JD Samson are definitely my pick.


2/3. Beck, live onstage, San Jose Civic Audotorium, July 12th, 2005

There is nothing to say but he's back...Beck in my eyes is one of the most prolific singer song writers in the world possessing an ability to create beats and lyrics that not only entertain but pull at your soul. In this new record "Guero" he has steped back to his roots of trippy rock mixed with electronic beats and simple guitar riffs, and this is so amazing. I do have to tell you that he is also one of those artists that sounds great live, with a very interesting cast of characters in his band and his own voice and guitar play. So if you missed this show try to make the July 18th appearance at the San Francisco Bill Graham Civic Center.
