Band to Watch: Vollmer

We’ve heard that there are a lot of great country and folk bands swarming this town, but there is nothing like the stark, garage country band Vollmer. Created as a homage to the slain second wife of William S. Burroughs, Joan Vollmer, this band opens every live performance with a simple vigil, and the intention of bringing awareness to the imbalance and injustice famous artist’s female partners endure, and Joan's story in particular.

Their laid back California drenched Haight st. personas can’t hide their small town drawls and deeply embedded country ties. We like them because they’re a guilty pleasure and completely different than the noisy, gazey and washed out counter culture bands we’re used to (and love a bunch as well). Drawing from influences like The Silver Jews, The Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash, Jonny Moon, and the entire band (who all sport the last name Moon, making the entire situation a strangely fitting family affair), brings a gutter punk glam to country music.

Anything that is an acquired taste, any band that has the ability to totally be themselves and swag onto a stage quoting anti folk bands like The Moldy Peaches while singing with chewing tobacco in their cheeks is a-okay with The Deli.

They’re in the midst of recording their new album, which will be completed whenever they see fit. Vollmer will be playing a Deli Magazine Sponsored Event with our friends Spider Heart and The Janunting Martyrs (who will be playing their first show since March) at El Rio on August 20th. Don’t miss it! -je

Luke Sweeney Releases Second Single From Upcoming Album Adventure:Us

Luke Sweeney has released a new track from their upcoming full length album, Adventure:Us. This endearingly jangly pop rock track is quintessential Luke Sweeney, but slightly stripped down and more lyric based. Doin' It To You is a pleasing song that doesn't overwhelm and reveals warm tones, but still contains that sense of humor we've come to enjoy and expect: an over the top song title coating a non-aggressive musical composition style that is fun, creative and well produced.

Keep your eye out for the release of Adventure:Us on October 14th us through Aerobic International. -je

WAG Friends w/o Benefits and Sun Valley Gun Club Play Brick and Mortar Music Hall - 7/23

San Francisco based college rock alt band, WAG will be performing live at Brick and Mortar Music Hall on July 23rd. This up and coming young band will be sharing the bill with Friends w/o Benefits, and odd band who refuses to share their recordings to entice you to attend their live shows. We guess that's cool, we're all about letting you know about cool shows around town, but a recording would be nice.

Rounding out the bill will be the Oakland based Sun Valley Gun Club whose sonic vibe sounds like sun-kissed college rock. If you're young, energetic and into fresh Bay Area music, head out to this show.

Trans Van Santos Little Tybee Brass Magic and Merrimack Play Amnesia – 7/13

The transient San Francisco psych folk staple, Mark Matos is playing his first show in San Francisco since his moving performance with Mark Matos and Os Beach at the Rickshaw Stop earlier this year. Matos has reemerged to play Amnesia with his new musical outfit, Trans Van Santos tomorrow night.

The popular Atlanta based experimental folk band, Little Tybee along with Bay Area based Brass Magic and Merrimack will complete the bill for this night of experimental and moody folk rock.

This is going to be another great night at Amnesia, so make sure you support the return of Mark Matos, and a lineup that will cloud the club with nostalgic and illuminating folk experimental sounds.
