Earlier this month, SF’s garage-pop trio Nodzzz released their second LP Innings (Woodsist). They haven’t played a show in San Francisco since the record came out, and I totally missed that Santa Cruz show with the Art Museums two weeks ago. It’s a good thing they play this Thursday (5/26) at the Hemlock Tavern. Catch them with Milk Music, and Doors US. 9PM, $7.
Note: The above graphic/poster shows a map of S.F.’s Tenderloin District. According to the Nodzzz blog, they’ll have a few extra posters for $3. Pretty sweet.
The first thing I was asked when I played Nick Waterhouse & The Tarots to my friend was, “When was this put out?” Looks are deceiving, as I show my bud the 45 RPM 7 inch with no cover. Self described as a “midnight-hour R&B shake-fest,” it’s a sound that hooks, and this band is doing a very smart thing. The 7 inch released by PRES Records last fall has already sold out. A repress came out in February, and since then the R&B gang has been busy recording in LA. See the band live, and get the record this Friday, March 25th when NW & the Tarots open for The Strange Boys, Ty Segall, Cosmonauts, & Moonhearts at Club Verdi. Waterhouse & The Tarots are on at 9pm. $10, All ages.
