Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for Monday, August 16th

Hello Dear Readers,

Did you guys go to that bomb line up at Rontoms last night? I Didn't! I ended up working until 11:30 PM last night and then being too pooped to head out last night. I probably would have missed them anyway. The first bus I could get to wasn't until after midnight. I really hope you guys went though, it looked like such an awesome lineup. Hey guys, I was thinking; the way things are headed for me, I might not might not be able to afford a new computer for many months. Maybe even next year, assuming my things continue to get stolen from me at the rate they have been this year (my old land lords straight up robbing me of $400 did not help either). So I guess what I am getting at is this: if I did a kickstart thing to get a new computer do you think you guys would help out, or is this a stupid idea. Let me know in the comments section. Anyway, here are a couple shows that look good to me tonight:

Valentine's is having a show with Love Always, The Golden Hours, and Slang Chickens (LA). Love Always is Kathy Foster from The Thermals kicking it solo. I saw this once and she played several songs to backing tracks which makes sense. She is better know for playing bass and drums. Her guitar abilities are there though, check it out. It is like Kathy and Hutch. Except now Hutch and more electric guitar. The Golden Hours are a band that I want to see. I really like the music they have on their myspace page. Classic indie pop. Sometime led by male vocals, sometimes by female vocals. Very good. The show is FREE and starts at 9 PM>

The Know is having a show with Songs for Moms (Oakland/SF), Street Eaters (East Bay), Best Supporting Actress, and Sex Hair. The show is FREE? and starts at 8 PM. I played a show with Songs for moms almost two years ago at that house venue called fuuuuuck what was it called. The Coop! It was kinda of a big deal for me. It was super hot and I played as Meyercord and in Y La Bamba. Super fun for me. Anyway, Songs for Moms were pretty fun. They have a load of influences which clearly shine through their songs. But they are a pop band overall. But in a punk way. They are from Oakland, so pop punk makes sense (not the shitty OC kinda pop punk, but the Lookout! kinda pop punk). Street Eaters are a boy girl two piece of drum and guitar. They are of the indie pop variety. Nothing like a good indie pop band from The Bay. This show is a classic two bands on tour, two bands from home show. Best Supporting Actress is a band that I remember wanting to see really badly a while back. I forgot what they sound like. Let me remind myself. Ah yes, they sound like noisy kinda crazy indie pop. Sexhair seem some where between rock and house punk. The show is probably free with donations accepted. The show starts at 8 PM.

If you see me at either of these shows please say "Hi". Also we can discuss kickstarter,

-Ben
