The first week of May is upon us and THE RUMBLE is back with week of shows guaranteed to stretch Cinco de Mayo throughout the entire week. As usual the party’s always free!

THE FEROCIOUS FEW will be joining us this month on the entire 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.

Starting the week off in Washington on Monday May 3rd, THE RUMBLE SEATTLE kicks off the tour at Havana Social Club. Seattle collective THE HEAD AND THE HEART are set to open the night with their harmony laden indie folk. Call them the American version of Mumford & Sons (a bonafide staple at FS HQ). Their track, “Sounds Like Hallelujah” is an epic beautifully orchestrated ballad, heavy on the violins and Josiah Johnson’s soaring vocals.

Then Tuesday May 4th we’ll head down to our Portland home, Holocene, where two local acts will share the bill with THE FEROCIOUS FEW. First up is 1776, a quartet that look as if they were plucked off the cover of Rolling Stone in the 60’s with perfectly shaggy mops of hair and vintage to match. Recently signed to Beat The World Records (The Dandy Warhols label), 1776 are young (most of them underage) and earnest classic rockers in the vein of MC5.

Portland Mercury darlings, MONARQUES round out the night, as this seven piece are set to bring their sunny, 1950’s inspired indie pop. The creation of Oh Captain, My Captain's Josh Spacek, MONARQUES’ dreamy confections are reminiscent of early Morning Benders with the added bonus of female backing vocals.

Wednesday May 5th, Francisco and co will head down to their home turf for THE RUMBLE SF at Café du Nord for the Juices album release party and probably one of the best Cinco de Mayo celebrations going on in the city that night. Tequila plus Trumer Pils equals the ultimate party.

Joining us for dates in SF and LA, are MISSISSIPPI MAN, a band we’ve loved since they released The Snake Oil Salesman EP last spring. This LA based quintet are making legit folk pop, full of blues infused harmonies with David Knight and Luke Messimer’s vocals recalling an early Neil Young. Touted as one of the Best Bands of 2009 by our friends at The Deli LA, we couldn’t be more excited to have MISSISSIPPI MAN on the bill for these two nights.

Bay Area favorites, THE SERMON will also be on hand for the fiesta. Serious dark dirty garage with blistering guitars and tinges of 60’s soul, plus a healthy dose of The Stooges; it’s no wonder The Owl Mag have been loving THE SERMON. If their live show is anything like we’ve been hearing, their set is bound to be pretty amazing. As always, resident DJ BAGeL Ted will be spinning tunes all night. RSVP at Sonic Living.

Thursday May 6th The RUMBLE LA will head back home to 3 Clubs, where another local act and Aquarium Drunkard fav, DIRT DRESS will open the night. Classic garage rock at it’s best (loud and thunderous); this three piece earned a spot at Waved Out this past March with bloggers saying, “Dirt Dress shows us what punk rock might have been, almost was, and, apparently, still can be.” With buzz like this, you’ll have to come check out DIRT DRESS.

As usual we head down south for THE RUMBLE SAN DIEGO on Saturdays to our North Park dwelling, Bar Pink on May 8th with a killer line up of SD bands joining THE FEROCIOUS FEW. First up is our newest obsession, LITTLE DEADMAN, a local act signed to our friends over at Single Screen Records (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.

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. It’s no wonder local SD press, like CityBeat are calling their sound, “catchy garage-pop without the lo-fi hipster pretense.” Local DJ Cory Casey will be on the decks all night!

The parties are FREE and are brought to you in each city by the collective of Rumble partners that come together to support indie music. Stay tuned for information on The Rumble: Las Vegas, The Rumble: Austin and The Rumble: New York coming soon......

Super stoked! FYI on the San Diego portion, it's Cory Casey not Corey Casey. Cheers!

It won't really have effect, I think this way.
