Annie Tittiger | June 27, 2012 | Lifestyle Story Galleries and Performance Culture Music

6/28 Midi Matilda
Their electro-pop combos will have you bobbing your head at first, but by the end of the performance you will be bouncing around the room. Don’t believe me? Check out their video. Best of the Bay Area Party at Metreon Cityview, 135 Fourth St., get tickets here

6/29 Sonny and the Sunsets
With yesterday’s release of their new album, Longtime Companion, Sonny & the Sunsets are about to hit the road touring. But before they do, they’ll put on a free show at Amoeba downtime. Expect twangy heartbreak and lyrics that will hit home. Show starts at 6 p.m., Amoeba Music SF, 1855 Haight St., more information here

6/30 Minus the Bear
While their newest album, released in 2010, doesn’t hit the same magical notes as their earlier work, Minus the Bear does not disappoint. In concert, their long, intricate guitar solos and lead singer Jake Singer’s soothing vocals can send shivers up your spine. Stick around for Young the Giant, beers and of course, the oysters. $35, Show starts at 3p.m., Oysterfest, Sharon Meadow, Golden Gate Park, get tickets here

6/30 Big Tree
The Berkeley-based band’s quiet guitar riffs and haunting harmonies resonate in any music hall. Pair them with the former TV studio’s intimate setting, and you’ve got magic. $10, show starts at 8 p.m., Rickshaw Stop, 155 Fell St., get tickets here

7/2 Mates of State
This husband-wife duo is one the soundtrack to practically every silver screen hit since the early aughts: From The OC to Ugly Betty and Gossip Girl (they even did a stint for the kids’ show, Yo Yo Gabba), which means we can draw the logical conclusion that their music appeals to everyone. $16, shows starts at 8 p.m., Independent Music Hall, 628 Divisadero St., Get tickets here
