Ever saunter past that dive-y drag joint on 16th between Mission and Valencia and find yourself wondering just what is up, er, goes down all night and all day at Esta Noche? Devotees of local darlings the Sandwitches caught a peek of the ladies' very own savory stage show à la Noche in their new Ryan Brown directed video for "In the Garden" -- the lead off track for this year's stellar full-length LP Mrs. Jones' Cookies (brought to you by the fine folks at Empty Cellar Records) -- featuring more than a few fab familiar faces of Amoeba Music SF. Work it out, ladies, werrrrrrrk!



This vid release comes hot-off-the-heels of another stellar Sandy jam: the girls' new two-song 7" single "The Pearl" (out on Hardly Art) dropped last week, a video for the b-side "Benny's Memory Palace" also having just been released, and with Grace and Heidi embarking on a Sandwitches European tour it would seem that our little hometown trio is poised for some long-overdue appreciation and recognition. From here on out let there be no mention of their beginnings as back-up singers (even if it is, tsk, one of the better aspects of them Fresh & Onlys). Come get the single (it's naught but $4.98), enjoy the vids (try not to over-ogle) and, if you can, get off your duff support the Sandwitches' local color-stories as they paint the Old World gold this November. Sophia McInerney's video for "Benny's Memory Palace" follows below:
