Artist(s) Who Deserve Your Friendship: Dressed Like Stolen Cars

Dressed Like Stolen Cars is an odd name and a relatively new band to emerge onto our beloved music scene. They write happy old-timey rock ‘n roll grooves with a hint of Brit-pop and plenty of Morrissey glass-half-full lyrics. They seem like a group that XPN could latch onto and put in heavy rotation to give their playlist a little more of an edge in the adult contemporary world and some street cred in the sometimes apathetic too-cool-for-school indie world. Dressed Like Stolen Cars’ demos certainly sound very promising. - Q.D. Tran



Kevin James Devine Changes His Name to James Quinn

“Local singer/songwriter Kevin James Devine has changed his name to James Quinn. This is to avoid future mix ups involving him and Kevin Devine (Brother's Blood). Go to his new myspace here. Also, if you email him at jamesquinnbooking@gmail.com with your name, email address, mailing address, and number of samplers you'd like, he will mail you as many 2 song samplers as you'd like. Your information will remain private. Thank you!” - From The Open Blog

The Deli SF's Weekend Highlights For 5/25-5/30

Maintaining last week's momentum, looks like this weekend is turning out to be just as busy with a number of great shows around the city.

If you're up for starting early this week head over to the Hemlock tonight to catch Maus Haus, with Boomsnake and Hosannas, before they set off on their tour, 8pm (early show).

Should the Hemlock not be your cup of tea tonight, around the corner at The Great American Music Hall Wooden Shjips will be playing with Spectrum, 8pm.

Continuing with their Thursday series, Epic Sauce will be putting on yet another quality free show at Milk. This one will be celebrating the release of Silian Rail and Seattle's By Sunlight's split 7-inch. Ash Rieter and Devotionals will also share the bill, 8pm.

This Friday head over The Rickshaw Stop where Birds and Batteries, Sister Crayon and Judgement Day will be playing a show presented by Spinning Platters, 10pm.

Lastly, on Sunday at the Hemlock local noisy shoegazers Young Prisms and Weekend will also be celebrating the release of a split 7-inch. Playing with Grave Babies and Swanifant, this is sure to be quite the show, 9pm.

Of course I'd be remiss not to also briefly mention that SF Popfest has a number of events sprinkled throughout the weekend. Featuring a number of great local acts head over to their website to check out their line-up and schedule.
