I was all hopped-up on some high-grade caffine I aquired this weekend, and I think it might have had an effect on my choise of records for this week’s edition of “AmperDan’s Monday Night Pop!” show. The show certainly opened on a “driving” note, and rock and rolled on through the coolest Bay Area bands until the the wheels fell off. Coffee, who knew?
Anyway, I’m really happy that The SHE’S have released their new EP, “Dreamers”; and, will be celbrating its release with a show at Rickshaw Stop this Friday night (April 18). For my part, I’m playing the first single, “My Secret To Keep”, all the time, for anyone who will take the time to check it out. Can’t wait to add the whole EP to my rotation.
Another new record making its debut on the Monday Night Pop! show is form The Trims. The album is called “Delete you After”, and I played the song of the same name. Killer track, and there are a lot more where that came from. A cool band and a cool record. Check it out.
Another amazing new album is from a group calling themselves Motobunny. Motobunny is made up of members of two of my favorite non-Bay Area rock bands, The Love Me Nots and The Woolly Bandits. Both bands love to rock, and are pretty amazing individually. Both have great songs, amazing musicians, and put on some of the best sweaty rock shows you’d ever want to see. Together, they are beyond belief. If you love grarage rock check them out. Motobunny.
Anyway, listen to the podcast. Make note of when bands you like are playing around town on your calendar (and I’ll always tell you when the bands I’m playing on the Monday Night Pop! show are playing), and go see them play. Cheer enthusiastically, if you feel it. Stop by the merch table and say hello. Trust me, they love it. Buy their CD, and play it for your friends. Repeat as necessary.
