Agent Ribbons are headed back into the the studio to start recording a whole new set of songs as a follow up to 2010′s critically acclaimed Chateau Crone. The band will spend the first week of February recording in their old hometown of Sacramento but are stopping in Oakland for a one-off gig on the way next Friday, January 27th.
But it’s not just any show. This gig will be a blowout as the Ribbons share the stage with fellow AF artists Social Studies, who are also about to head into the studio to record a follow up to their 2010 album Wind Up Wooden Heart. With engineer Eli Crews (who has recorded albums for the likes of Deerhoof and tUnE-yArDs) on the boards we’re looking forward to checking these tunes out!
Also on the bill will be a short solo set by Emily Jane White, a local singer songwriter who we’ve become quite enamored of over here at the AF HQ. More on her in a subsequent post.
Rounding out the bill are openers SunBears! a great indie pop duo out of Florida on their first west coast tour, the norcal retro poppers The Ian Fays, and DJ Zola. This bill is like a ginsu knife set, the hits keep coming!
So come on out, it’s only $5!
Friday, January 27th (show starts early at 8pm!)
