Rogue Wave
The Independent ~ Friday 7/12 & Saturday 7/13

Local indie rock veterans Rogue Wave are back in the Bay Area for a two night stint at the Independent. Headlining both July 12th and 13th with support from Caveman and Hey, Marseilles, the Oakland outfit is currently on tour promoting their excellent new album Nightingale Floors. Gaining rave reviews from both Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound (and Showbams), expect to hear plenty of tracks from their fifth studio album mixed in with familiar favorites for their native fan base. There’s no better way to celebrate an album release than a double header with friends and family. For your chance to get in on the home-front festivities, register above to win a pair of tickets.

Sonny and the Sunsets
The New Parish ~ Friday 7/12

Polyvinyl prodigies Sonny and the Sunsets bring their vintage flare to the New Parish Friday. Touring throughout the West Coast this summer promoting the release of their 4th studio album Antenna to the Afterworld, the group has been treating crowds to critically acclaimed new material since the album dropped on June 11th. Garnering attention from NPR Music, Stereogum and international audiences alike, the crew brings their infectious energy back stateside as they prepare to embark upon a tour of the Western US with Kurt Vile and friends. Be sure to catch them at the New Parish this weekend before they kick off their summer road trip with the “king of slacker rock” himself. To hear new cuts from Antenna to the Afterworld and catch the last glimpse of Mr. Smith and his Sunsets before the fall, register above for your chance to win tix.
