Brick and Mortar Music Hall ~ Thursday 6/13

Indie group Snowden (no, not the NSA leaker) stop off at Brick & Mortar Thursday as part of the west coast leg of their tour in support of their second full length No One In Control. The new record was six years in the making, so Jordan Jeffares and crew don’t tour very often…

The Soft White Sixties
The Independent ~ Saturday 6/14

San Francisco’s very own The Soft White Sixties perform Friday night at The Independent for their album release show. After turning heads earlier this year at SXSW, these grit-rockin’ locals will celebrate the release of their first LP Friday before heading out on the road in July. They will return to the City to play Outside Lands in August. Another excellent local artist, Sioux City Kid, will be offering featured support Friday.
