SF Station Blows It Up

1. The Morning Benders @ 330 Ritch, San Francisco, May 9, 2008

There is nothing like a homecoming and there is nothing like one when you drop your album, and last Friday night SF's own Morning Benders did both. Hitting the stage at 330 Ritch to a packed room, the boys gave everyone a hell of a show. Performing songs from their new album Talking Through Tin Cans Chris and the boys showed what good lyrics and great notes can do on a stage. These guys rocked so hard that guitarist Joe Ferrell bled all over the place and still killed it.

2. The B-52s @ The Independent, San Francisco, May 9, 2008

I am not even sure how to start talking about this show…walking into The Independent, I could feel the anticipation in the air for the B-52s to hit the stage. And once they did, it was complete mayhem with the entire building actually dancing to every note. And you had to have been there to see it because in our cool city this never happens because most of the time people just stand and stare. The B’s rocked out with some old favorites and then brought the new stuff, from the album The Funplex, to the dance floor and just killed it.


3. Tapes n’ Tapes @ The Fillmore, San Francisco, May 10, 2008

Minneapolis has something to offer and that is Tapes n’ Tapes who ruled the stage at The Fillmore last Saturday night with their on versions of what indie, experimental and pop should sound like. Josh, Matt, Jeremy and Erik made the crowd move with tunes like “Hang Them All” and “Conquest” from their new album Walk it Off.
