MAN IN SPACE @ BOTTOM OF THE HILL, AUGUST 7, 2010
In celebration of the release of their self-titled debut EP, East Bay psych-funk quintet Man In Space threw a massive party at Bottom of the Hill. During their baffling set, the group played their EP in its entirety, interrupted occasionally by bizarre covers of songs like Talking Heads' "Once In A Lifetime" and Jeff Beck's version of the Beatles' "A Day In The Life."
Also appearing was SoCal's Young the Giant (formerly the Jakes), who brought their sunny indie rock to the Bay Area.
Finish Ticket brought the house down with their percussive alt-rock stylings, playing their own EP in its entirety while adorned with war-paint and feathers.
The opening act was East Bay funk-pop quartet Fever Charm (with guest bassist Miles Essert of Rikoche), who also played their EP with classic Rebirth energy.
