SAN FRANCISCO RUMBLES @ MILK TONIGHT ON HAIGHT STREET

THE RUMBLE: SAN FRANCISCO happens tonight @ Milk on Haight Street, across from Amoeba Music, and once again we're serving up three up-and-comers, DJ's, Trumer Pils beer specials and even a happy hour show.

Headlining the evening will be a band with a name that reflects the artistic past of San Francisco Beats and beyond - CITY LIGHT. City Light are Postal Service and Aqueduct-esque electro rockers and Noise Pop favorites. Their release Burned Out Bright (Banter Media) is full of bright yet distorted electronic soundscapes like "Someday Maybe" and has already caught the attention of out friends over at The Bay Bridged.

In the middle slot of the evening is the SF act that we owe a huge thanks to THE DOWNER PARTY for stepping in last minute. The four piece have been buzzing in the bay area for a while, with classic uptempo rock combined with sugary lead vocals courtesy of Sierra Frost. THE DOWNER PARTY are snotty punk rock with sharp lyrics and guitar hooks.

"Sierra Frost now kicks it awesome-style with the Downer Party, making wonderfully pure, energetic rock full of sharp hooks and off-kilter tempos." - Stranger Dance

Opening up is a band I urge you to see. Seattle and Portland are still chattering about their performances on Monday and Tuesday, but LA's CHASING KINGS are the kind of band you see once, and you'll make a point of seeing them every time they are in town. Some compare the vocal stylings to everyone from Elvis Costello to Squeeze but we strongly recommend you getting there early enough to see this band, so you can say you say them way back when playing Milk.



Resident DJ, BAGEL TED (Bagel Radio) will be there spinning throughout the night and there will be TRUMER PILS beer specials all night long as well. Be sure to get to Milk early that night for the Milk Happy Hour show that is being headlined by another up-and-comer > CASH PONY.

The party is FREE if you RSVP before 5pm today - to do so go here
