Hey Bay Area peoples! Catch a couple of Antenna Farm bands playing this week as part of the SF Popfest!
Thursday night, Antenna Farm’s newest act, Social Studies, return to SF after a couple of weeks of west coast touring, to support the excellent tUnE-yArDs. The great Eux Autres are also on the bill, it should be a great night. For more info, click here.
Then, on Saturday night, Still Flyin’ opens for a reunion of the All Girl Summer Fun Band. Still Flyin’ has been burning up the UK and just played the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival; they have a couple of new singles that are great, and this is going to be a killer show. More info here.
Both shows are at the wonderful Rickshaw Stop in SF, and both may well sell out, advance tickets strongly advised!
Hey Friends, take advantage of some hot sale pricing from our main physical distributor this week!
That’s right, all AF titles are 25% off through the Nail/Allegro site this week. Now’s your chance to stock up on some of those back catalog titles as well as all your necessary new music in One Fell Swoop!
San Francisco’s Social Studies take a break from prepping for the release of their debut album, Wind Up Wooden Heart (out in late July on Antenna Farm) to play some west coast and midwest shows starting this weekend.
Notable stops include the Silverlake Jubilee Festival in Los Angeles, The Subterranean in Chicago, and Porterpalooza on the UCSC campus, but the show we’re most excited about over here at the AF Headquarters is the Sunday show in Fresno, and it’s not just because they’re playing with buzz band Rademacher. No, it’s because they’re playing Audie’s Olympic, which we last saw in Pee-Wee’s Big adventure, playing the part of the nasty biker bar! Sweet!
But wherever you are, when Social Studies rolls through your town, cancel your plans and catch them where you can. They put on a great show, and this is a record we are really excited about.
Yes, the first leg of Sugar & Gold’s spring tour wraps up tonight in Lexington, KY at Buster’s, and we’d like to congratulate the winners of the You Ain’t No Picasso ticket giveaway for the show.
For those of you who weren’t on their route this time around, never worry, the band will be coming to your town sooner rather than later! In the meantime, check out Prefix Mag for some choice shots from their Knitting Factory show in Brooklyn last week.
That’s right. Get Wet! was the most added album to college radio rotations in the electronic/hip hop category this week, and was the #8 add to the overall CMJ Top 200! Congratulations are in order….but then again, it’s a great record! Grab a copy now at the Antenna Farm store or get a copy directly from the band on tour.
Speaking of which, they play a set of 3 record release parties in California starting tonight before they hit the road, here’s a quick reminder of those dates!

Antenna Farm is pleased to welcome San Francisco’s Social Studies to the AF family. Their unique combination of angular indie rock and classic twee-pop will be familiar to Bay Area folks who may have seen them over the past couple of years, sharing stages with the likes of Dungen, The Pipettes, The Long Blondes, and Handsome Furs. Their high energy live shows, combined with eclectic and unpredictable yet completely catchy songwriting won us over here at Antenna Farm, and we jumped at the chance to work with them. I guess you could say they had us the minute they threw verse/chorus/verse out the window, and when you give them a listen, we think you’ll see what we mean.
Social Studies are putting the finishing touches on their debut album, Wind Up Wooden Heart, as we speak and are prepping for a late July release date. Meanwhile, the band is prepping some May tourdates, stay tuned for more on that very soon. For now, check out Time Bandit, the lead single from Wind Up Wooden Heart.
You demanded it, and we delivered. You said April 27th was just too far away, just too many weeks to wait for the new Sugar & Gold album. We here at Antenna Farm are sympathetic! We’ve been rocking this album for weeks, why should we be keeping it from you? Dates are just numbers on a calendar, and that’s a fact.
So what did we do? We told iTunes to release this jam 2 weeks early. Power to the peoples. And we went ahead and opened up our store, so you can order yourself a copy of the LP today. Bam. And yes, both the LP and iTunes version come with the bonus track ‘Closer’. Not kidding friends. We’re so serious about this, we are making you a special offer. For a limited time, you can pick up a copy of the Get Wet! LP, PLUS a copy of last fall’s AYA Remix 12″ for one low price.
So yes, to get your copy of Get Wet! TODAY, click yourself one of these links. You Will Not Regret It.
Yes, the fine people at Spinner have gotten their hands on Sugar & Gold‘s latest video release for their song AYA, and it is something else. Inspired by he films of Alejandro Jodorowsky and the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story, storyboarded with tarot cards painted by Ernesto Ortiz, and shot in an SF warehouse, this video is everything we love about Sugar & Gold.
