All ticket purchasers will receive Tumbleweed Wanderers new EP, 'Worn Down Welcome'http://www.theindependentsf.com/event/224843/
Tumbleweeed Wanderers are growing at a blistering pace. Since forming in July of 2011, these Oakland natives have released two EPs, selling 3,000+ copies out of their van, completed 6 self-booked tours within the Western US, tallying over 200+ shows and selling out multiple venues. Now, they’re setting their sights even higher and are poised to realize them, with the completion of their debut album So Long produced by John Vanderslice. Barely old enough to get into the venues they perform at, this young group does not stop. It’s highly likely to see TW playing a packed club date one night and busking outside of The Greek Theatre the next night.
Guy Fox entered this world at an impressive 635lbs 8oz and has established a following of all-night-dance-enthusiasts and local musicians alike. The band is made up of northeastern transplants, all of whom are students of music steeped in different idioms. The result is an explosion of talent and eclectic songwriting-- an apt description for a band that takes its name from a 17th century assassin that literally tried blow up Britain's Parliament. It's an experience that finds them flirting with a number of genres- indie, funk, soul, and afropop- while keeping their audience glued to the dancefloor.
The Record Company
The Record Company is a roots/blues/rock trio based in Los Angeles. Steeped in the classic sounds of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker along with the jump of Howlin' Wolf, The Record Company have burst onto the scene in a very short time, performing their first show in January 2012. While never trying to simply emulate the great masters, the band have found their own fresh take on the music and can best be described as a group giving a 21st century nod to a timeless art form.
