Social Studies return from their US tour, a manic 3 week blitz that included several CMJ shows and props from none other than Michael Stipe. Whaa?
Yeah, we’re not sure what that’s all about either, but you locals can get the skinny from the band themselves this Sunday afternoon/early evening, as they play the SF Indie Mart afterparty at Thee Parkside.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Indie Mart, check it: “For our last Street Fair of the year, we are busting out no stops…85 vendors with the best in local designers, handmade, vintage, rebuilt, art, screenprints & live printing, letterpress & lots of free & low cost fun things to make at several of our DIY stations. OUR FAVORITE BANDS ALL DAY & A KILLER AFTERPARTY SHOW! Stellar DJ’s. Drink specials, tasty BBQ, tots, photobooth from Magnolia, awesome times.”
Yo, it’s a blast. Some of the other bands that are playing are Magic Bullets, Hot Lunch, and the Finches, so you know this will be good. Social Studies play at 7:30.
After this show, join the AF crew as we truck over to the Knockout to catch up-and-coming LA band George Glass, playing their first SF show, put on by the inimitable Neil Martison of Smile. Opening the show will be Silent Pictures and Italian/French sensation, Grimoon. A fun packed day to be sure, you heard it here first, San Francisco!
