Tonight’s Wood Shoppe show at Brick and Modör is going to be great for San Francisco’s early to bed/early to rise constituents, and poses the question: Shouldn’t all musical lineups be arranged in descending likability?
First on the bill is San Francisco’s own bittersweet sweethearts, Magic Fight, who exude both charming self-effacement and gut-wrenching tenderness live. Despite the fact that their lineup includes a ukulele, a Casiotone keyboard and exactly zero guitars, they are not even a little bit annoying and don’t sound like pussies live or otherwise.
Aww, and just look at these guys…
After Magic Fight, Kan Wakan will take the stage and play what will almost certainly be a very pretty, heady set. Deep, smoky girl vocals, strings and tasty bass riffs, yes - please sign me up. Thanks, Silverlake.
Finally, once we all go home, (since it is a Tuesday!), a bland called Vanaprasta will play using an instrument whose main feature is that it lights up, and maybe an electric firebird mandolyn. This five minute live video assures me that I’ll rest easy laying down to go to sleep as they begin their second song.
