August 2014
Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Music Video Premiere: RZN8R - Tell Me

Oakland based electronic trap musician, RZN8R has released a new music video entitled, Tell Me. This post modern Alice in Wonderland-esque short film scenerio stars three young women (Melissa Hyatt, Heather Carlson and Katie Mroczek) who gather in a graffiti laced abandoned haven to have a weird psychedelic tea party. Upon drinking a blue elixir, the women's bodies begin to contort in strange ways. Directed by Haylee Warner, the music video is mind altering and RZN8R's music guides you through the tripped out storyline. What more can you want?

If you like what you see, you can check out RZN8R at his upcoming live dates in San Francisco and Oakland.

September 18th — Neck of the Woods – San Francisco
November 7th— Warehouse416 — Oakland

Spider Heart Plays Full Acoustic Set - 8/29

​The heavy, in-your-face, punk positive - riff blaring San Francisco based band, Spider Heart will be performing an acoustic set this Friday, August 29th. Yes, you read right: Spider Heart will be playing their very first acoustic show at a small venue in the heart of the city called, The Vortex Room. If you've seen ​this band perform live, you know that their unplugged set is going to be a really amazing experience.

The softer, quieter Spider Heart will be sharing a bill with Paula Frazer, Zoe Blank and San Pond. The Vortex Room is a cozy little venue, but if you're looking to find a place where you can express yourself loudly and stretch your legs across the aisles of the room, you may want to skip this event. It takes a level of diplomacy and grace to experience a show at The Vortex Room.

You'll be sitting in close quarters with music connoisseurs and friends and family. Do your best not to miss this show! It will be one of those unique nights that you'll remember for a long time. -je


Exclusive Announcement: The Felice Brothers and Spirit Family Reunion Co Headline The Chapel 10/3

Well, this is one of those shows you aren't going to want to miss. We could dress it up and say it in a million fancy ways but the fact is that on October 3rd, The Felice Brothers and Spirit Family Reunion co-headlining a show at The Chapel in San Francisco is kind of a big deal. Not to mention this announcement guarentees a promising and potent Indie Americana rock show.

The Felice Brothers are embarking on a massive fall tour after releasing their full length album, Favorite Waitress.

The Deli Magazine San Francisco is the first to announce this show and we're completely excited to share the news. Make sure you order advanced tickets through The Chapel's website! We hope to see you there!!


False Priest Clumsy Concentration The Twitches and Punisher Play Bottom of the Hill TONIGHT

There is an exciting local show coming up TONIGHT. San Francisco based music venue, Bottom of the Hill will be hosting a night of local alternative rock with Punisher, The Twitches, Clumsy Concentration and False Priest.

Full on local shows are so rare to find (Punisher has recently moved to Oregon, but their hometown is San Francisco), so it's nice to see the music community coming together as a full line up.

Clumsy Concentration is a hardworking teenage band making their way up the local music ranks. They'll probably find moderate success before they can drive a car or drink. Shout out to the cool parents who support them! Punisher is a garage pop band who, as mentioned, are traveling down south from Eugene, Oregon to return to their Bay Area roots to play this gig. The Twitches is a slightly eerie pop alternative band. Their music is fast paced and will have you shuffling around the dance floor! False Priest is an established Bay Area band whose music goes from being heavy and grungy to minimal and anti folk. Their eclectic style is fun and interesting, and their lyrics are super dark and ironic. We like it!

You won't want to miss this show!
