Future ClassicTickets SFTickets LA

 

FINALLY! Our favorite record label brings the crew out on a very special US tour that hits California starting tonight! At the top of the list, we got CLASSIXX bringing in their funky, disco DJ sets to run the night. I most recently saw them play live at Outside Lands, followed by a DJ set with STARFUCKER the same night. I personally could never get over their vibe. Both dates will have the odd, but smooth Sophie dropping her otherworldly bangers, and Cyril Hahn laying the cool groove.

 

SF and LA dates will have seperate undercards that I’m almost more excited for than the headliners! I said almost…Check the SF Lineup here and LA lineup here.

As festival season, which is seemingly year-round nowadays, draws to a close for 2015, San Francisco sees its annual isolated gathering on Treasure Island this weekend! Every year this lineup invites a wide array of cream-of-the-crop artists and upcoming superstars to get their own window to woo the open minded Bay Area crowd. Though, the party doesn’t start or end at the festival! With preparties and night shows, the entire weekend is jam packed with amazing musical talent, beautiful sunsets, and one breathtaking skyline.

 

Our most anticipated of the night shows is undoubtedly YACHT; kicking off their album release tour at the Independent. They have been on a roll for over ten years now, seeing their 6th studio album I Thought The Future Would Be Cooler release on October 16th, the day before their SF show! Come out after Treasure Island and see how YACHT got their acclaim as incredible live performers.

The two sisters that make up CocoRosie blend dreamy blues indie-pop vocals with experimental beats and electronica. While the combination of genres is rather peculiar, these sisters create a sense of alluring curiosity with that oddity. The addition of their interactive and artistic stage presence only makes the performance that much more worthy to see live.

 

Their upcoming album, Heartache City, and its first live performance headlines Symbiosis’ Sunday at Big Island. Bianca “Coco” will also be debuting her side project Bianca Casady & The C.I.A. in the US over the weekend. With both acts, you can be sure that the performance will be a theatrics-laden event. We’ll see you there.

Tame Impala-Soulwax-Let it happen-controlaltdelight

Just when we had started wondering about the brothers Dawaele and friends, they release this awesome remix of one of this Summer’s biggest hits. It’s got just the right amount of spooky funk that we love about Soulwax. Tame Impala‘s psychedelia fits so well in this new Fall-ier fix.

Aptly named London duo TENDER incite bedroom ardor simply and smoothly. A little dash of dysphoria via lyricism and drawn out synths and the deed is done.

Glasgow’s Tongues and modulated electro-pop go hand in hand. His use of synth, modulated vocals, and catchy rhythms lead to emotional swells that are a step above typical feel-good fare.

It’s always cool to see two producers with varying styles come together on a collaboration. Giraffage specializes in the smooth R&B and bass driven beats, while Viceroy’s dubbed “summertime, all the time” jams are uplifting, poolside-disco vibes. You can especially hear elements from both of them in this sultry, sexy tune. With the help of Patrick Baker on the vocals, this is surely set to be one of the defining songs of the summer.
