Video Premiere: Royal Jelly - The Old Bay Bridge

The cool thing about the Bay Area´s local bands, particularly the artists who are surviving in San Francisco right now, is that they tend to be very committed to their home base. A great example of local artists paying homage to the changing times in their city (for better or for worse) is Royal Jelly Jive. This great vintage swing-soul band has written a song and shot a video to commemorate the destruction of a part of the Old Bay Bridge.

The video was shot at the Embarcadero in honor of this special occasion with a song they wrote inspired by the bridge itself... aptly named, "The Old Bay Bridge". Check out the video and support local artists who are keeping their head above water in the San Francisco Bay Area (literally and figuratively)!

Band to Watch: almondsandpearls

We do our best to stay on the cutting edge and keep our ears to the ground for new Bay Area music groups and artists. A pat on the back feels well deserved as we are pleased to share new music from a great new psych R&B band called almondsandpearls. Their music is eclectic and unique, the members are experienced and funloving and exactly what an ever changing city like San Francisco needs as it evolves into a new era of art and music.

almondsandpearls is a band that has evolved over the years from multiple musicians living, hanging out, and rocking together in one of San Francisco’s last standing artist warehouse spaces. The line up includes visual artist and vocalist, Breck Omar Brunson (Former frontman of The Apes, Screens), guitarist, Kyle DeMartini (Down Dirty Shake, Fast Eddy), and multi-instrumentalist and sound designer Sia Mozaffari (Should We Run). Our sound is psychedelic R&B with a tinge of jazz, reflecting the diverse background from which each member comes from.

Take a listen to their new singles, Soul Free and Peppermint and please support their current indiegogo campaign! Support local independent music!

Annie Girl and the Flight Debut New Music Video - Antidote

Annie Girl and the Flight have outdone themselves with a vibrant social commentary on cultural complications in the Bay Area and beyond. Making an appreciated attempt to return the power to a young, talented Black woman who seems to get played no matter what playing field of life she chooses to step on, Annie Girl and the Flight´s video for their song, Antidote paints a very vivid picture of how it feels to be Black and female in America. The Deli is always into poingent reflections on diversity and empathy for others who give everything they have and sometimes fall short, ending up with their hands in the air for no reason at all. This is a great video!

¨The video features a political statement about racial profiling by the police and also cameos from many local San Francisco musicians.¨

Annie Girl and The Flight will be supporting Micachu & the Shapes on November 10th at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.
