Milk Was A Bad Choice Holiday Party (12/6)

If you’re still not fully enveloped in the holiday spirit, then fear not—Milk Was A Bad Choice has the showcase for you. Complete with Christmas DJ sets, festive drinks, and even an ugly sweater contest, the holiday party showcase is the perfect event for anyone who wants to stop being a Grinch. The stacked lineup includes local psychedelic garage-rockers Locus Pocus, a solo set by Zachary Vito of the Bay Area’s very own Union Pacific, and a special headlining performance by the disco-infused alt rock quintet Kid Bloom from L.A. - Lilly Milman

Drop by The Milk Bar on December 6th at 8 pm for the holiday party to end all others, and until then, stream Locus Pocus’s new single “I’d Be Your Woman” below.





Evil Seagull's debut EP shows a smart, sensitive songwriter on the rise

There is something mystifying about the way Oakland-based Anne Healey, also known as Evil Seagull, is able to turn her experiences into music. Listening to her EP The Philosophy of Evil Seagull is like a trip to the island of misfit toys; her haunting vocals are sweet up until the moment they go completely sour, with carefully crafted lyrics that communicate a feeling through anecdotal abstraction (like this line from “You Are Wise”: “Then I called you Buddha, / and you squirmed and hit me in the eye; / I meant that you were wise, / I said it to be nice.”) Evil Seagull’s debut drips with musicality and experience, and you can stream all four songs below. - Lilly Milman





Life Size Models take a trip down memory lane in fun, fresh 'Homemade EP'

The newest release by the quartet Life Size Models, aptly titled Homemade EP, is an explosion of nostalgic alternative rock. Lead singer Chris Seymour’s energy is intoxicating, as he layers borderline raucous vocals over the fun, fast-paced melodies of tracks like “Get Better” (streaming below) and “State of Mind.” Listening to this EP is akin to being on the brink of an adventure; it’s music for the car ride, for the moment you realize you are about to do something big. There’s something distinctly summery about their jangly, garage band ballads, although they’re worth listening to all-year long. Their next show will be free of charge, at the Caravan Lounge in San Jose starting at 10 pm. - Lilly Milman

Bong Kitty wows with clean, complex surfy garage rock in 'Worst Party Ever EP'

When it comes to the San Francisco-based garage band Bong Kitty, surf and slacker influences come together to form timely, tight rock. Listening to the Worst Party Ever EP feels like sitting on the beach with all your friends—if your friend group consisted mostly of the cast of Dazed and Confused, that is. It’s surf rock, but with an edge; the guitar parts are dynamic and reverb soaked displays of good, clean, Dick Dale-influenced fun while the vocals are hazy with some clear slacker influences. Stream the EP below and keep an eye out for Bong Kitty’s next live show because they are not ones to miss. - Lilly Milman
