Buzzmutt Celebrates Album Release at Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT

San Francisco based experimental post punk band, Buzzmutt has released a new album entitled, Strange Planes of Surveillance. Their music is loud and untamed, but their song's composition is structurally coherent. Buzzmutt's  brand of noise music has a danceable element that is really fun but doesn't take away from their punk integrity.

If you're into Sonic Youth and New Order, you'll be into Buzzmutt. They certainly standout and you should check out their show and pick up an album just to make sure you keep your music taste diverse.

Head out to the Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT to see Buzzmutt share a bill with Wild Pack of Canaries and The Shape.

The poll is complete, and the fans have spoken! Congratulations to The Shape for coming out triumphantly and winning The Deli Magazine San Francisco's Artist of the Month Poll. This experimental psychedelic garage rock band's music is just as innovative and sonically appealing as it is tripped out. It's no wonder the Deli readers chose them as the winners! We sincerely wish The Shape the best of luck on their future endeavors! Congrats again!

   

The Shape Hungry Skinny Surgeon Generals Scissors For Lefty at the Monarch TONIGHT – 8/14

Tonight, the Monarch in San Francisco will be hosting a night showcasing four must see indie rock bands from the ay area . The Shape, who has just released out with their “Into Trenches” in April, has a heavy melodic sound that features a head-bobbing rhythm section, dreamy guitar riffs for the majority of their songs and minimal dazed out vocals. Hungry Skinny brings great rock and roll riffs, Iggy Pop punk style vocals and groovy choruses to the overall poppy line-up, creating a little more flavor for the night’s line up. The Surgeon Generals, who have also just released their second single “Deadwave” from of their forthcoming album, feature tons of distortion, echoed vocals and catchy choruses. And Scissors For Lefty, with a sound reminiscent of The Strokes with more synths and a poppy feel, takes on a more classic early 2000’s indie sound.

Be sure to head out tonight for some good dancing and sing-a-long tunes! - Victor Casillas Valle
