Tonight! ToyGuitar, Modern Man and Nervosas are playing at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco.
Modern Man is an Oakland based band that plays haunting, reverb-filled shoegaze that seems to be soaked in drudgery, simply for good measure. Last year, the band came out with a cassette called Small Waves. The track to check out is Dada, a diddy filled with equal parts angst and anger. ToyGuitar is a Bay Area band that is a new manifestation of the '90s East Bay punk band, One Man Army. This project was forged last year, and the results have been exciting. Toyguitar released a self-titled 7-inch on Adeline Records that has a definite power pop feel. Nervosas is a touring band from Columbus, Ohio. Their sound can best be described as hook-filled "dark punk" with post-punk aesthetics. They also released an impressive self-titled LP on Let's Pretend Records.
Be sure to catch this show tonight! You won't regret it! -Erin Dage
