The SF-based band that describes its sound as “soulful music from outer space” have been on tour in support of 2012’s Myth pretty much since its release, and Geographer brought their dream-pop rock back home to Bimbo’s 365 Club on Saturday night.

The crowd was still situating into the shoe-gazey scene enjoying “Verona” off of 2010’s Animal Shapes before the usually modest Michael Deni dropped an F-bomb before the song ended. Explicitly inviting SF fans to “bring it to the mother fucking floor” for the last show of their tour, Deni was obviously and understandably excited. Who wouldn’t be?

In January, Geographer kicked of this leg of the tour at SF’s most culturally historic concert venue, The Fillmore, before hitting the road, playing across the states and then up into Canada. Now, almost a year later, here they were playing a sold-out show at Bimbo’s 365 Club, one of the swankiest places in SF to see a live show.

Following the fan-favorite ditty “Life of Crime” came a more poppy version of “Paris”, and Geographer carried on, alternating between songs from their 2012 and 2010 albums for a good first half of the show. Deni did a good job connecting with the muted crowd without pausing for typical banter. For instance, he didn’t prep fans for his theatrical stage dive during “Kites”, the most well-received song of the night.

Ending their tour in the city they now call home, Geographer’s artistic allure shined at Bimbo’s 365 Club with impeccable lighting and almost unblemished sound. Working on new material while touring, Geographer will surely hit the road yet again upon the arrival of their impending fourth studio album.
