Middle Maki
Live Performance
Simple, clean and melodic, Middle Maki writes songs in the American narrative. Founder Elizabeth has spent the short years since beginning to play the guitar and banjo compulsively learning about American music. She is joined by her twin brother, Spencer, on guitar and Jack on bass. On a mission to modernize its mythology and more particularly the banjo, Middle Maki makes songs with stories to live in and music to move to.


For a band that updates and reinvigorates a classic mod/garage rock sound, it’s no surprise that The Hi-Nobles—a group with decades of collective music experience and more than a few personal stories involving Pearl Jam, the Sex Pistols and the Bay Area metal scene—can put a 21st century spin on the standard “how we formed” story.
For this band, it all began with a snarky Craigslist ad—the one quoted above. “I saw that ad, and I’m like ‘I’ve gotta call them up!’” says Scott Holderby, a Bay Area music vet probably best remembered for his time in the genre-bending metal group Mordred. “And it was perfect timing; I was looking for a band to try out for me. So I thought I’d go to their audition and give them a chance.” He laughs. “Because, you know, I’m a prick, not an asshole.”


Bohemian Carnival
Catch the bay area’s most titillating Avant-Cabaret community this Friday night at the DNA Lounge. Bohemian Circus — featuring Vau De Vire Society and GOOFERMAN — will perform with special guests Triclops!, Diamond Daggers, and guest host Jello Biafra! Composed of classically-trained dancers, some of the nation’s most acclaimed acrobats, aerial artists, contortionists, circus side-show acts, fire performers, thespians, and go-go’s, this is one show that is not to be missed!
