Echo Country Outpost is hosting the Amanda Jo Williams Yes I Will, Mr. Man Record Release Show on Saturday, March 27 at 6:30 pm.

5 Bands, $5 at the door, free tequila!

It’s a romp in the woods with moonshine-soaked hillbillies fighting for love and the American dream. A banjo this time, a dancing percussionist next time, Amanda Jo notably has a musician surprise or two at each performance. For March 27, she’ll have two stand-up bassists, a rhythm section, and, as always, the inimitable guitarist 5-Track, whose guitar howls and coos like a wolf on opium. The show gets even better with glam folk band He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, story-telling dreamer Henry Wolfe, as well as Woodstock folk artist and legend Paul McMahon, who taught Williams to play guitar, and the wild stomping Matthew O’Neill.

Some of you might remember the fire at Tigeorges’ Chicken the other month. Well the popular Haitian restaurant wasn’t the only business to suffer damage. Smoke from the fire and water from the firemen made their mark on the underground art and music space, L’Keg. A benefit is being held this Saturday to raise money so that L’Keg can reopen their doors as soon as possible.

Here is the deal: you have to RSVP on Facebook to find out the secret location. You can do that at the event page here. Those of you without Facebook will need a friend to help you out. However, this event is geared towards a scene familiar with Facebook so I bet if you are interested in this you already have an account!

Well, the long wait is finally over–after releasing their excellent debut, The Ortolan on Dim Mak records in 2007 and playing a slew of shows, tours, and sweater festivals, The Deadly Syndrome have finally returned with a new disc of their frenetic and hook-charged rock. Nolens Volens (Latin for “whether willingly or unwillingly”) will be independently released by the band on March 23rd–meaning you’ll be able to purchase digital copies from the usual gang of distributors like iTunes and Emusic, or you can buy a physical copy from the band’s website.

Produced by the band and co-mixed with Kennie Takahashi, Nolens Volens‘ sound, according to the band, promises “less ghosts, and less wolves. We tried to be as honest as we could. Hopefully we succeeded.” And, from the sound of “Wingwalker,” a preview track on the band’s website, it may well have been worth the wait. – Web In Front

Abe Vigoda, Lovvers, and The Black Apples will be playing tonight The Echo at 8:30pm.

“Along with Women, Dirty Projectors and Wavves, Abe Vigoda is chipping away at our expectations of how a 21st century rock band should function.

Reviver doesn’t simply take the concepts laid down in Skeleton and give them a novel new twist. Instead, this is the sound of a completely different band, barely recognizable from the fumbling, itchy and trebly guitars that prickled through tracks like “Dead City/Waste Wilderness” from the preceding record. They’ve undergone a process of attrition, of paring down the Abe Vigoda sound until it represents something totally new. All the energy and ideas poured into their music have been un-learned and spewed out into a different musical space.” – Prefix Mag

This is gonna be a killer show, PCNVB is Spencer from SKATERS and VODKA
SOAP jamming with two other dudes.  We also got the incredible NYC sound
artist/explorer Marcia Bassett, playing here as ZAIMPH.  And to top off the deal, we
have the Dutch vibrationist and keyboard ritualist STELLAR OM SOURCE here to
shake us slowly to sleep.

good luck finding the PACIFIC CITY NIGHTLIFE VISION BAND anywhere.

Tues, Mar 2nd – PEACE, LOVING + HORAFLORA + headlight + LOLA LOSHKEY

Well, we moved our art drop back a day to help out these fine folks, slyly named
PEACE, LOVING travelling from New England, bringing with them a calamitous
cacophony of metal and whirling free jazz.  SF’s HORAFLORA also shares this love
of prepared instruments and strange sonic disturbances.  Our very own headlight,
on the other hand, will seem like a gentle dream, a synth-based slalom into the
abyss.  And also recently added is the newly developed LOLA LOSHKEY, a
frightening trip into the realm of dead pets, stuffed unicorns and skeleton suits.


Wed, Mar 3rd – ART DROP for the PEOPLE WE KNOW SHOW 7p to 10p

I know, we usually do art drops on Tuesdays, but this one is gonna be Wednesday,
so that we can have the Peace,Loving guys play.  But don’t let out tardiness fool
you, we’re super psyched about the phenomenal Rebekkah Clendening coming up
with the idea for this show, and we’ll be featuring many of her portraits of local
figures from the neighborhood.  But what kind of neighbors would we be if we didn’
t open up the show to everybody… so come and bring us your portraits, photos,
sculptures and even stories about people you know, people we might get to know!!!
