  1. Paper Bird’s Album release party is Friday. They’re fabulous, playing with He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister at Oriental Theater. Also, Toubab Krewe at Cervantes on Friday.

    • You should see them because they need support to properly play well. The Soft Moon is lovely slower psych rock, Champagne Charlie has a voice like dude from Man Man, Old Man Markley is rockabilly bluegrass with a heavy NOFX’S influence, Delicate Steve is super not delicate.
