    The Rogers Bringing you their own take on Americana , borrowing from alt.country, gypsy jazz , folk ,honky tonk,moaning slide guitar,while the singer croons along to the highly emotional lovelorn tunes. The Famous The band’s latest, 2010’s ‘Come Home to Me’, finds Scott and Barclay refining some of the themes of ‘Light, Sweet Crude’. They’ve perfected their signature raw-country-meets-post-punk sound while maturing some of the more manic elements that made their debut such a bold statement. From Pixies-esque pop gem ‘Mano Negra’ to warm-hearted ballad ‘Every Day’, Scott’s vocals are more self-assured and effective than ever and Barclay’s guitar masters country twang, rock crunch, and searing solos. Of course, they are solidly backed up by Chris, G.D., and a crew of equally adept guests. Juanita and the Rabbit Let's burn our possessions and wander across the face of the earth; spreading the gospel of love, life and rock n' roll!We'll string up the corporate hate-mongering ideals by the very neckties that have choked so many of our brother's (and sister's) souls. Let's turn loose upon the world; the passion, the dreams, the ideals... and most importantly let's have some GOD-DAMN FUN!!!

    JUST ADDED: HOT PINK FEATHERS BURLESQUE A Hot Night of Twisted Twang, Hillbilly Music & Sexy Burlesque! Featuring: The Hot Pink Feathers + The Dirty Hand Family Band The Famous + The Shants + The Rogers INFO: http://​www.shelbyashpresents.net/ TIX: http://tickets.gamh.com/​events/204769/​Twang-Bang-feat-The-Dirty-H​and-Family-Band THE HOT PINK FEATHERS (SF) Where Carnaval meets Cabaret : Hot Pink Feathers perform World Cabaret Showgirl dance. Recently voted "Best Dance Company" in the SF Bay Guardian “Best of the Bay” polls, the Feathers are committed to Delighting the World, One Showgirl at a Time. Think Busby Berkeley choreographing an ethnic dance festival, with Carmen Miranda, Josephine Baker, Lola Montez & Little Egypt as his side kicks. http://​hotpinkfeathers.com/ THE DIRTY HAND FAMILY BAND (SF) We came together with one common idea; that our songs should sound good on stage or around a front porch. We are story tellers. We tell of our lives and how we came together, pulling from old-time gospel, country and blues. Making light of dark times, we sing hymns that skip rocks on the soul. All are welcome in The Dirty Hand Family Band. Bring A shaker or shake your ass, either way it's a damn good time! http://​www.reverbnation.com/​thedirtyhandfamilyband THE FAMOUS (SF) A shot of classic country with a post-punk chaser. “If country music's original outlaws had made their break with Nashville in the post-punk era, it might have sounded a lot like the Famous.” –No Depression “The Famous arrange a standoff between the Pixies in a cowboy hat and Hank Williams on speed, six-shooters loaded with punk and rockabilly, and whaddya know – that bastard alt-country genre gets shot square in the forehead, with a stray bullet no less.” —West Coast Performer http://www.thefamous.net/ THE SHANTS (Oakland) The Shants’ slow-burning sound originates from the rural backgrounds of its members: from South Louisiana delta pines, to the brusk plains of Minnesota to the rolling hills of the Central California Coast. The Shants now call Oakland, California home. http://​theshants.tumblr.com/ THE ROGERS (Oakland) The Rogers create their own take on Americana, borrowing from alt-country, gypsy jazz, folk, honky-tonk, afro-rhythm, sweet slide guitar, as well as dueling guitars. www.reverbnation.com/​therogers $13 adv / $15 doors / 7:30 doors / 8:30 show / all ages The Dirty Hand Family Band Though we are from all over the U.S., we call San Francisco home and each other family.
