LIVE MUSIC - AKES

  • Ferment. Drink. Repeat - FDR Brewing (map)

Consisting of an author, a videographer, and an audio engineer, the three members of Bay Area ensemble AKES take their music into their own hands; Joe DeMars (bass), Jack Hogan (guitar), Nick Cafiero (electric ukulele/vocals) —handle nearly every aspect of their creative lives in house. They are dedicated students of their craft from the gear they play to the music that influences them.

That mindset is a fitting accompaniment to their heady sound. Taking inspiration from the post-punk scenes in the U.K. and U.S. where dozens of bands allowed themselves the freedom to mash up instrumentation and musical textures, AKES winds in the sounds of synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines into already finely honed material cut from pop/rock cloth. These sounds are the beginnings of a new creative regime for a band that has already been wowing audiences in and around their Bay Area scene.

New single Friend A is a perfect stepping stone connecting the group’s past and future. With a title that references those literally nameless figures that fill out the cast list of major motion pictures, this scintillating slow burn calls out the hangers on of the social media age, who attempt to draft off the energy of someone else’s tragic loss and claim it as their own. It’s a potent message given extra power through AKES’ blend of Afrobeat, burbling electronica, and heartfelt pop.

LIVE MUSIC - The Western Nephews

  • Ferment. Drink. Repeat - FDR Brewery (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS


The Western Nephews are five residents of San Francisco who stumbled into existence in 2017 in various subterranean, poorly ventilated rehearsal rooms around the city. They brought with them a love of Exile-era Stones coupled with the DIY ethos and sound of early American punk rock. They played their first show at San Francisco’s Hotel Utah in November of 2017, then promptly lost a guitar player to the threat of divorce.

 

The following month, Kevin Phillips (Guitar) joined Brian Escobar (Guitar) as the architects of the band’s guitar-driven sound, filled out by Evan Meagher (Vocals, Harmonica), Alan Hord (Bass) and John McCain (Drums) and they never looked back. Their smoldering and swampy sound ferments equal parts studied chops and sudden childlike chaos infused with wry, cynical lyrics that reflect the mercurial urban landscape that birthed them. They come at you hard and fast and loud, out of tortured speakers that have something to say and don’t particularly care what you think.

 

The band self-recorded basic tracks for their debut digital EP - American Standard - on Cinco de Mayo 2018 at their aboveground SF rehearsal studio. Throughout May, additional recording and mixing was done at Escobar’s Sunset Tamales studio.

 

American Standard was released to the internet on Father’s Day, June 17 at roughy 10 PM PST.

Join us for a festive evening of Hanukkah, Klezmer, and Christmas music performed by accordion virtuoso Aaron Seeman and friends.

Aaron Seeman's onslaught of solo accordion and vocals has astounded audiences of all shapes and sizes. Maximum Rock 'n Roll, the premier punk magazine, pronounced him "over the top!" for his note-for-note renditions of the entire first Dead Kennedys album, Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables. His repertoire also includes, but is not limited to, 70's rock, Broadway, klezmer, classical, country, Sousa marches, punk rock, and even a polka or two.

Rather than play hokey accordion versions of these songs, Duckman/Seeman seeks to demonstrate that accordion and vocals alone can evoke the spirit of the song, whether the hard driving rock of AC/DC, the wide vocal range and sonic landscape of Boston, or the supersonic speeds and driving force of Dead Kennedys, or favorite holiday classics.

Doug Barrett & the Deal Breakers is a SF peninsula-based blues/rock power trio comprised of 4 long-time friends who've played together in various incarnations since high school. Their kinship is evident in the way their music grooves and gels together. Their repertoire ranges from classic Delta & Chicago blues standards (SRV, the 3 Kings, Taj Mahal) to blues-based, classic-rock gems (ZZ-top, Allman Bros., Hendrix, Cream). Doug Barrett serves up the blazing yet tasty guitar solos on guitar. Justin Wooster keeps things gritty & soulful, pulling double-duty on drums and lead vocals. Paul Sassenberg holds the bottom end down in the pocket on bass. Vince Arellano brings the party as the visual focal point of the band on percussion, vocals and improvised acrobatics.
