Annie Bacon
For me music is a way of resisting the tide that urges towards blind consumption not just of things but of ideas and lifestyles meant to imprison us in complacency. in creativity/creation we find the antidote to war, to genocide, to injustice, intolerance. we find ways to empathize with our enemies, and to gently criticize our lovers. for me it is how I explain to myself all that is unexplainable. it is my direct line to the divine.

Erin Brazill
I was born and raised in California and was fairly entrenched in music, community theatre, and poetry writing as a very little girl and through college. I studied classical piano and voice in college as well as literature and creative writing. After college I moved to San Francisco and worked in jazz clubs in North Beach in SF bartending, booking bands, immersing myself in jazz and writing constantly and glamorously with great beatnik flourish in little journals stashed behind the bar. In the past 5 years I have been lucky enough to play with very talented, creative and generous people who stir their musical gifts and ideas into the songs. We play original compositions I have written reflecting upon my time in San Francisco, my rural child hood and travels, as well as a few well loved or unusual covers here and there.

Two-Headed Spy
Born in San Francisco in the post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland of Hunters Point Shipyard in 2006, Two Headed spy isculmination of chance meetings, long friendships,past experiences and pure luck that has resulted in a sound that can best be described as alternative post grunge rock with qualities that have evolved from five years of playing the dankest bars in San Francisco and beyond. With longtime friends and true partners in crime Trent temple on guitar and vocals, Matt Jarrell on Bass and vocals and Troy Arajs on Drums, THS brings over 300 years of combined experience to rock and roll badassness.So let’s get real, bring your helmets and athletic supports of all varieties (M/F) and prepare yourself for the cyclic revolution of that hook-laden, bass-heavy, drum-pounding, melodic, guitar-driven rock and roll sound you crave so much that comes hitherto reincarnated in the form of Two Headed Spy. “Club Hong Kong” will be released in conjunction with the Victims Family, Two Headed Spy CD release show at Café Du Nord, Friday September 30th.
