(see map below for directions). Performing will be the following musicians. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx ERASE ERRATA: "Their songs are propelled forward on choppy waves of jerky rhythms and guitar lines that wrap their way around your brain like a copper wire. The vocals weave in and out, from calamity to croon, all anchored by sharp-edged, tin can beats." level plane "This excellent Bay Area band had folks lined up around the block at Brownies' last week. They have a penchant for skronked-up, wiry new/no wave stylings. True fiery art-punk spirit when indie rock needs it most!" WFMU 20 MINUTE LOOP: "20 Minute Loop plays jagged and crunchy pop with an irresistible capriciousness. Think of them as the crash that might result from X, Pavement and Devo all running red lights at the same intersection in front of the methadone clinic. Or simply delight in these mercurial, shimmering and lyrically sharp songs." - MARK GROWDEN: "Growden's Music is a calliope of tangos, marches, pedal steel blues, and eloquent acoustic ballads. In his hands, parade scores unravel to become inebriated waltzes. Ballads are stretched thin and poked with forks. Melodies dance like wicked children...He's adept at knocking traditional notions of music slightly off- kilter, to better fit our ears." - John Paczkoski - S.F. Bay Guardian GOLD DUST TWINS: Gold Dust Twins in their premiere performance. Beth Lisick on voice (author of This Too Can Be Yours and Monkey Girl available on Manic D press), Andrew Borger on drums, George Cremaschi on double bass and Eli Crews on guitar. These folks hail from such bands as the Beth Lisick Ordeal, the Roofies, and the Tom Waits band. -Band Bio SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16TH 8:00 P.M. EL RIO 3158 MISSION ST.
