Nothing Amoeba Green Room Session

Nothing performed an intimate, stripped down set in the Amoeba Hollywood green room on February 24, 2017. In this latest entry in our Green Room Sessions series, the Philadelphia-based indie quartet played four hazy, dreamy songs, including a truly excellent PJ Harvey cover. If you're thinking about catching the band on their upcoming US summer tour, you'll definitely want to check out video of this very special performance.

Nothing Tired of TomorrowThe band set the tone with the gorgeous, slowcore track "The Rites of Love and Death" from 2012's Downward Years to Come LP. Next up are two shoegaze standouts from last year's Tired of Tomorrow album: "The Dead are Dumb" and "Fever Queen." Nothing finish their set with a haunting, astonishing version of PJ Harvey's "The Desperate Kingdom of Love" from Uh Huh Her. It's a hypnotic, achingly lovely performance from a band that continues to impress.

Amoeba Music Hip-Hop Top 5: 05: 05: 2017

5: Blockhead Uncle Tony's Coloring Book LP (Young Heavy Souls)

Number one new release this week, out today May 5th 2017 (happy Cinco De Mayo!) is the latest from the always amazing Homeboy Sandman: Veins LP  via Stones Throw / Fat Beats.  The vinyl only (so far) album features such killer tracks as the advance songs "Bamboo" and "Clarity" (see both music videos below). And while the ten song Veins album may only clock in at just over 24 minutes in length, as I have stated here before, Homeboy Sandman's unique intricate deep rhymes pack more clever thought-provoking lyrics  into one song than the average contemporary hip-hop artist manages to do in an entire album!

Oakland Museum of California's May Schedule To Include Los Rakas Concert, Turf Feinz Dance Set & Movie, and Punk Rock Bike Tour

Posted by Billyjam, May 4, 2017 08:42pm | Post a Comment

The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) continues its dedication to local culture (including music and dance) with events for its May calendar to include a turf dancing (concert & film) event, a performance by Panamanian/Oakland duo Los Rakas, and a punk rock bike tour. OMCA's punk rock bike tour of Oakland, which  will take place on Sunday May 21st at 10am, is billed as a "special tour focused on the punk rock scenes of The Town" with "the history of anti-establishment Oakland, from DIY to music, art to activism." A free all ages event, it is the first in hopefully many of a new innovative series that could easily expand to include Oakland's next door neighbor Berkeley with its deep punk rock roots. More info.

Most of the other music related events are connected to the new Spring series of Friday Nights @ OMCA.  An outdoor and indoor event, that's spread across the sprawling Oakland museum, the Friday night series focuses on local music, art, and culture including food (including a variety of food trucks). There's a lot going on Fridays in May beginning  tomorrow (May 5th) when the La Pelanga DJs will begin their month long residency at Friday Nights @ OMCA. Similarly there'll be square dancing lessons with accompanying acoustic folk music tomorrow and each upcoming Friday this month. Next week, May 12th, performers will include Baba Duru and Joaquin Ramos playing traditional rhythms of the African diaspora, plus a concert by Fito Reinoso y su Ritmo y Harmonia.On Friday May 26th Phillip Montalban and the Bluefields Sound will be among the entertainers.
