Short songs because life is short

Can’t wait for happy hour tonight:

Nick Pal spins short songs because life is short. Hard rock, power pop, punk and pop vinyl.

RSVP and invite your friends!

Seriously, go see the Gooch Palms this Sunday

Here’s the first song off their LP, Novo’s:

Doesn’t this rule? I saw them at the Hemlock last fall, after seeing this video on Tumblr somewhere — and I seriously cried when they played this song. (I was going through some stuff, but whatever.) There’s only two of them, but they sound they manage to put forth is sooooo big and gnarly and sweet.

They’re playing at the Chapel this Sunday night, and it will surely be a night to remember.

Ralph Carney, of the BoJack Horseman theme song, performs tonight at the Chapel, no cover

Here’s the epic full length version of “BoJack’s Theme”:

Ralph plays all those horns — and tonight he’ll be playing a bunch of horns as part of The Tedtones. Here’s the deal:

The TedTones are a group of Bay Area musicians from various genres that have joined together in their common love of jump blues, roots, and jive. For listening, dancing or just plain fun, they are capturing audiences everywhere.

Ralph Carney (Tom Waits, Tin Huey)—reeds & horns; Ted Savarese (Drizzoletto, Octomutt)—guitar & vocal; Randy O’Dell (The Cottontails, GG Amos)—drums; Mike Groh (Hot Club of SF, Gaucho)—guitar; Sam Rocha (Hot Club of SF)—bass.

It’s free and all ages and starts at 8pm.

Do read our own Vic Wong’s epic interview with Ralph Carney, which includes talk of BoJack, Tom Waits, the Shaggs, St. Vincent, and Nic Cage yelling at his kid.

A rather conservative outfit

This is Snezana, featured last week on the local fashion blog SF Looks. Here’s what she has to say about her look:

Today my outfit is rather conservative. I usually like layering bold prints and colors (often ugly ones), but I am slowly shifting towards incorporating white, off white and black. I’m interested in 30s shapes and 80s avant garde, ethnic garments and Uzbek tribal jewelry, loose fit and excessive amounts of fabric, vintage military accessories and 50s statement hats.

I too have always been into vintage military accessories. As a little kid I toted around my grandpa’s war compass everywhere I went, until some fun-hating neighbor told my mom it was probably a little bit radioactive.
