This week in the Bay: Shows with Foxtails Brigade, Bart Davenport, Social Studies and more!

Wow, got a bunch of shows to share with you this week, dear reader….for fans of Antenna Farm artists in the Bay Area, the coming week is a veritable embarrassment of riches, so get out your datebook!


First is this Thursday (7/21) at the New Parish in Oakland. Antenna Farm is pleased to be presenting a great show at Oakland’s coolest new venue. Foxtails Brigade headlines this show, playing songs from their critcally acclaimed new album ‘The Bread and the Bait‘ (“skillfully executed sounds that are simultaneously childlike and wise beyond their years” – Bitch Magazine) with The Botticellis showing off a new lineup and a bunch of new songs in the middle slot. Opening the show is friend of the label and stringmetal masters Judgement Day, doing a rare semi-acoustic set. Get advance tickets here.

The following night, Friday (7/22), Bart Davenport returns to Berkeley’s Starry Plough for his first Bay Area show in months! Bart’s been on tour in Europe for the better part of the last 3 months, playing shows with his bands Honeycut, Incarnations, and of course plenty of solo gigs. But it’s about time Bart gets back to the Bay, it just hasn’t been quite the same without him! You can expect to hear a few songs from Bart’s new covers album ‘Searching For Bart Davenport‘ plus the songs Bart is recording now for an Antenna Farm 7″ release this fall!

Then on Sunday (7/24), SF’s Social Studies return to the SF Indie Mart at San Francisco’s Parkside Theater. The Indie Mart is an excellent marketplace for a bunch of SF’s coolest independent designers, you can go and support local artisans while enjoying BBQ, cheap beer and excellent music! All proceeds benefit the indefatigable founder of SF Indie Mart, Kelly Malone, in her battle with cancer (the big C may have messed with the wrong person this time!). Indie Mart starts at noon, and Social Studies play at 6pm sharp!


Finally, old friend of the label Lana Rebel is playing the El Rio next Wednesday (7/27). Lana jams some serious country rock, more real than the tear in your beer. She’s joined by relentless troubadour Eric Shea’s country outfit, Sweet Charity, and we know this will be a killer show.

Whew, quite a week! Get your live music on and we’ll see you out in the clubs!
