PLUSH Pardoner Run Forever and Looming Play Know Lodge Gallery - 1/7

PLUSH and Pardoner, local heroes, are back out on the town playing support for a show at Know Lodge Gallery in Oakland on January 7th, and y’all better not miss it! Both bands have been making their California rounds debuting recently released albums from 2015. PLUSH’s April release Pine is the perfect blend of classic San Francisco garage-y riffs, fuzzy reverb-ed pop sounds, and soft vocals that the quartette has dubbed “sob rock”. These talented young ladies and gent have been playing in Bay Area bands over the years, but only recently came together to create the dreamy sound of PLUSH. Pardoner brings a similar shoe gaze vibe with both of their 2015 EPs, but they pack a much more noise-punk punch, don’t let their soft intro’s fool you. Out of towners Run Forever and Looming will be closing out the show next thursday with some east coast indie rock. Come early, and bring your pretentious artsy friends (it’s a gallery), music starts at 7 pm. -Julia deAnda
