Build-up an electro-pop duo with as much radio appeal as San Jose's the Limousines -- whose single "Very Busy People" got lotsa love from Live 105's airwaves -- and you're bound to get somewhere. This year's single "Internet Killed the Video Star" took the band to even larger audiences. And surely, opening for Weezer's big Memories Tour last month in S.F. didn't hurt.

So yeah, we're not totally surprised that the Limousines today announced a deal with Dangerbird Records, the Los Angeles label home to Silversun Pickups, Minus the Bear, Hot Hot Heat, and Fitz and the Tantrums. They should have a new record out on the label next year; details are yet to be announced, but we'll let you know when we hear.

What other local bands do you think deserve a record deal? Tell us on Twitter, or post their music on our Facebook page.

  • 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.'"
