The Rumble: Saturday Night at Bar Pink
(The following is direct from a press release, but I couldn't say it all any better. The Rumbles are getting crazy these days, so show up early to guarantee entry.)
This Saturday night @ Bar Pink it's the May edition of THE RUMBLE: SAN DIEGO
The FREE monthly indie rock night that's about highlighting up-and-coming bands returns to North Park with an incredible line up.
First up is our newest obsession, LITTLE DEADMAN, a local act signed to our friends over at Single Screen Records who can't seem to pick a bad band (Beaters, Heavy Hawaii). LITTLE DEADMAN evoke early Strokes with a hint of Yesayer. Just check out their track “Shooting Seagulls” and you’ll hear why we can’t get enough of them.
Main support for the night comes by way of San Francisco's THE FEROCIOUS FEW. This duo has been playing the entire run of the RUMBLE WEST COAST TOUR in support of their staggering debut release Juices (Birdman). The brainchild of SF troubadour Francisco Fernandez and Daniel Aguilar, this blues rock duo are a return to the hallmarks of classic Americana, with visceral, raw lyrics accompanied by frenzied guitars and bashing drums. After a sweltering set in Austin at the Bay Area Takeover Party this March, THE FEROCIOUS FEW have been racking up the accolades, with the New York Times blog labeling the pair as one of their SXSW Standouts.
We’ve been lucky enough to see them live (back in November they tore up the small Blue Palms Stage at the Hollywood Brew Fest), so we can attest that their show is a serious force of zealous energy that is really indescribable. With Blurt Magazine calling Juices “the best debut album of 2010 only 4 months in,” this act is set for big things. The single “Porcelain Doll” is piece of riotous soul rock. While, THE FEROCIOUS FEW are known for their impromptu performances on the street corner of 16th and Mission, but if the buzz radiating off Juices is any indication they will soon be shucking the pavement for larger venues very soon; so the chance to see them in these intimate settings won’t last long.
THE KABBS are dirty Southern tinged garage rock by way of North Park, with the help of Brian Clinebell’s vocals. A perfect melding of psychedelic and blues influences, “Golden and Blue” is a must listen. CityBeat calls their sound, “catchy garage-pop without the lo-fi hipster pretense.” Out Sista's at Indigenous tell us that their live show is spellbinding.
DJ Cory Casey will be on the decks all night and there will be TRUMER PILS beer specials all night long!
The Rumble San Diego is brought to you by a collective of indie minded partners that support developing acts and consists of Future Sounds, Indigenous Promotions, M-Theory Records, SDdialed In, Trumer Pils and SD CityBeat.
