You know how lots of dudes have their "fantasy" sports teams, where they get all crazy about their dream combinations of men with bats and balls? Well I have fantasy concerts, all the time, most of them involving some picturesque outdoor venue--in Big Sur--and a lineup involving the best psych, folksy, and indie acts.

Thanks to Britt Govea and (((FolkYeah))), I don't have to sit around hoping a coach across the country hires my team. To wit: the promoter just announced a show that I'm more excited about than any other this summer. It's a Woodsist Records showcase with some of my personal faves on the label--Real Estate, Moon Duo, Woods, Kurt Vile--playing together with other acts on Saturday, June 12 at the Henry Miller Library. *Just added: The Fresh & Onlys, The Art Museums, The Mantles, & Eat Skull

(((FolkYeah))) points fans towards Henry Miller Library's site to buy tickets, which are a bargain at $22.50. I imagine this gig's gonna sell out quick.

I can vouch for the acts listed so far as putting on great live shows. I saw Real Estate probably three or four times at SXSW this year, and they never disappointed, while Woods and Vile played a similar all day music picnic at the Library last year, and it was one of the best gigs I hit all year. So yeah, if you can't tell by now, I'm stoked.

One more note: Woods has a great new record.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
