Wet Hair Bay Area shows- TONIGHT 21 Grand!

I really need to get better at this. FOR REAL.

Tonight at 21 Grand in oakland. WET HAIR, Talk Normal, and a new project from gowns. gonna rip i think.

Wet Hair is the Iowa City powerhouse that rose from the ashes of rac-ooo-ooon or however you spell it. that band slayed but now with no darren ho, Garbes and Reed have had to think of something new. what they came up with is a lo-fi psych dream. take one part joy division, one part throbbing gristle, one part max roach and you get a really good band. Shawn Reed is one of those people who make people get shit done by getting a lot of shit done. He and the Nite People label are the catalyst for a lot of what is making noise music these days interesting. So head over tonight, or if you can't make it go to the Hemlock for their San Francisco show.

Also playing, NYC's no/post/new wave outfit Talk Normal. Excited to see these guys. Don't really know what it's gonna be like. Also a new project from Erika Andersson of Gowns.

YESYESYES i love this city by the bay. come love it with me.
