Sometimes I wish “Lightning In A Bottle” classified as its own sub-genre. It’s a style of music I can’t get enough of…I’m talking the tribal, experimental-yet-dancy types of songs that teleport you to another world. Yppah fits right along with this vibe, supplementing smooth guitars on airy, ethereal synths that induce closed eye visuals of their own. Could just be the album art that’s burned into my brain. Either way, it works!

 

Yppah – Occasional Magic

This makes their performances not only high energy, but unique and constantly evolving. Anyone who’s been a fan of the Australian sound should make sure to come out to this, and we have a chance for you to go for free!

San Francisco! RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL wasn’t about to skip out on NorCal while on the west coast. You’d be hard pressed to find an artist not take an advantage of coming to this amazing city…in our favorite venue of the area, no less. Not to mention they’re bringing Cassian for support! Honestly, what this band brings to the table combining dancy, smooth electronic with a full live band is everything we ask for in a show. Simply cannot wait for this.

One of the most exciting things as a writer and fan is to see an artist come into their own greatness. In this case we have two rising stars that are showing a glimpse of just how great they will be. The passionately soulful and rhythmic vocals were so gently laid down by Skela that seems effortless. They come together with Jacobson’s flowy, ethereal production in such a way that oozes the feeling of crushing freshly fallen leaves in the fall. I expect to see a lot more coming from these two in the near future.

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.
