Random Things: March 3, 2011

  1. SF Rebirth’s third concert, featuring Seize the Sound, Other Daniel, and The SHE’s (our band of 2010), will be held at Woodside International School in the Sunset on March 12 from 2 to 5. Admission is $5, and all proceeds go to the Bina Hill Institute in Guyana, South America. Juniors, no need to worry--the show will begin after S.A.T.s.
  2. The Sullivan Brothers have changed the name of their highly successful Westwood & Willow project to Rin Tin Tiger following their Noise Pop gig with Max Bemis. They have also expanded the group’s lineup to include Rebirth veteran Mr. Andrew on drums. The band members claim they changed their names due to people leaving their gigs enjoying their music but having no memory of the group’s name.
  3. Foolish Ways will be playing a show with rising Bay Area rapper Roach Gigz on March 12 at Red House in Walnut Creek. This means Foolish Ways will probably be smoking a lot more weed now--only time will tell if they turn into Flo Rida.
  4. Adorable Handshake multi-instrumentalist A.J. Campbell has left his group due to an apparent conflict with the other members in terms of plans for the band’s future. Handshake is believed to be working with a temporary replacement.
  5. Hot promotion technique: give your demo to hot emo bands. Ratherbright has attracted the attention and praise of Fall Out Boy, while Miles Atkins of the Secret Show has given copies of his album to Dashboard Confessional, Saves the Day, and Max Bemis of Say Anything. Good--this gives me another excuse to hunt down Brendon Urie.
