Live Performances: Dame Satan and Quinn DeVeaux

SHOW RECORDING


Dame Satan

8pm
LIVE PERFORMANCE
If Quazar had sounded anything like Dame Satan, I might be translating dispatches from Zeti Reticuli right now. Ever heard music that makes you desperately try to remember if you’d innocuously eaten a brownie earlier that could have been, ahem, herbally enhanced? Dame Satan’s music had that effect.

9:30pm
LIVE PERFORMANCE
Quinn Deveaux sings and plays the guitar and the sound was cut right here on the streets of Oakland and San Francisco. Quinn writes and sings Blue Beat music. His sound is time spanning and generation spanning. Songs with silly sulking meanings and their all wet like a bucket of collard greens. And you just wanna dip your bread inside and chew chew chew. And Dance and dream of your lover whilst they rest in your arms. His debut solo album Lions On Lakes is available at shows and it’s likely to blow your mind. He plays solo at the Blue Six Gallery on February 20th, and with his band February 26th at the Make Out Room, and Saturday February 28th at the Hotel Utah. You can find him at myspace. com/quinndeveaux

LIVE PERFORMANCE
Steven Michael Werning is a singer/songwriter hailing from the small town of Ripon in California’s Central Valley. He gained musical experience playing throughout the Central Valley with the band Fairway, which was nominated two years in a row for a Modesto Area Music Award. Werning now lives in Santa Cruz, where he writes songs by himself with his guitar, banjo and mandolin. Influenced by music that runs the gamut from rock to hip hop to fingerstyle guitar, and trying a little bit to fit some of each into his songs, Steve does his best to make music that feels good to his brains, and hopes sincerely that it feels kind of good to your brains too.

I am a singer, songwriter, performer from the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up in England and moved to the Oakland- Berkeley East Bay when i was 12 … Started playing in bands at 15 and am still doing it , performing and recording regularly. My musical tastes vary greatly from 20′s and 30′s early cabaret jazz tunes to power pop-new wave-punk rock to soundtrack moody torch songs to dark chamber pop to girl group kitsch.

“This first EP from My First Earthquake, entitled Tremors, is totally fun and infectious. The six tracks are adorned with plenty of synth and hip-shaking bass lines, making for a continuous stream of well-executed, straightforward indie pop.”

California Honeydrops

http://www.myspace.com/thecaliforniahoneydrops

8pm
LIVE PERFORMANCE
The California Honeydrops were formed in November of 2007 playing in the subway stations of Oakland, CA. Playfully crossing genres from roots and blues to R&B and soul, The California Honeydrops’ sound is tied together by their unique instrumentation, soulful vocal harmonies, and a funky, good-times New Orleans style. The Honeydrops’ more unusual instruments include a home-made gutbucket bass, jug, and washboard. Their greasy down-home rhythms are punctuated by joyous blasts of trumpet, rollicking piano riffs, and passionate bluesy vocals. The only band of its kind, The California Honeydrops’ live shows have quickly gained a reputation as the best party in the Bay Area.

Well, thats your own issue dude. Chill the fuck out, cuz Kalri$$ian don’t roll like that.

The Stone Foxes are a rock and roll band based in San Francisco, CA. Heavily influenced by the great rock, blues, folk and country stars of the 60s and 70s, the Stone Foxes play a unique brand of loose rock and roll and heavy, dirty blues that is otherwise lacking in today’s music scene.

I’m proud to announce the next lineup for the Baghdad by the Bay showcase at Red Devil Lounge on February 18th.

KALRI$$IAN
http://www.kalrissianbaby.com/
Jump around with your hands up and your pants down to the slick sounds of smooth boys of KALRI$$IAN. Bring an umbrella, it will rain panties.

B and not B
http://bandnotb.net
B and Not B is a songwriting project of David Ricardo (DRB, Young Moderns). An awesome six-piece band of veteran players brings the songs to life on stage.


French Disco
http://www.frenchdisco.com/
Deeply rooted in lo-fi indie, shoegaze, and ’90s Brit sounds, French Disco references bands such as My Bloody Valentine and Ride, instantly transporting the listener to 1991.

Bhi Bhiman

http://www.myspace.com/bhibhiman

Sarcasm and humor are among his favorite instruments, but Bhiman’s debut solo album on HinJu Records, “The Cookbook,” has recipes with a serious taste to them, too.

www.myspace.com/ohmycheetahs
Hailing from the regolith region of the Earth’s lone satellite, CHEETAHS ON THE MOON have arrived on the terrestrial musical scene to do nothing less than revolutionize rock-n-roll with power ballads as hot-cool as a lunar magma ocean. Go ahead…tug our whiskers…you’ll see when we scratch.
