You might remember, that I’m a proponent of creating an ArtHop offshoot called RockHop. Tonight is ArtHop, and we also have a few good local music happenings. So it’s kinda like RockHop. Just unofficial.
The traditional post-ArtHop hipster hangout has the traditional post-ArtHop indie rock band — Rademacher.
It’s been a while since we talked about Rademacher. The band has had (surprise!) a lineup change recently and is gearing up for a busy July. It’s doing a handful of dates with Admiral Radley (including 7/9 at The Cellar Door and 7/10 at Frank’s Place).
Rademacher’s frontman Malcolm Sosa was also featured on “Portraits,” a 32-song compilation that was released in May.
- Crossroads and KRZR team up for a local rock show with a good lineup — Down Word, Mercury Bullet and 12 Gauge Serenade (check out their Sounds of the City). Here’s hoping this becomes a regular thing.
- Audie’s Olympic is a bit more punk rock tonight, with It’ll Grow Back, Born Loser and Oakland’s Knifey Spoony.
