Six Not-to-be-missed shows this month

Annie Tittiger | January 8, 2013 | Lifestyle Story Culture Music

Sons of Fathers, 1/12, Brick & Mortar
Think Crosby, Still & Nash mixed with a bit of Texas twang, and you’ve got Sons of Fathers. The six-man band, led by the songwriting duo David Beck and Paul Cauthen, hails from Austin with sound reminiscent of an old western film, but with a breath of fresh lyrics and harmonies. Not a show to miss. Whiskey and straw hat are strongly recommended.

Los Rakas, 1/12, Slim’s
The Panamanian rap duo has called Oakland their home for the past two years, and have been rocking the local concert circuit while pumping out videos and EPs left and right.

Mark Matos and Os Beaches, 1/17, Brick & Mortar
If Beck and Father John Misty pumped out an album, it would sound a lot like this—and it would be awesome. Lucky for us, we can claim Mark Matos and Os Beaches as our own, as the “acid gospel/americalia!” (their words) band is from San Francisco. Give their EP Coyote and the Crosser a listen, then go watch them live for $6.

Ty Segall, 1/18, The Fillmore
Not only is there Ty Segall, but White Fence and Nick Waterhouse are opening. It’s like the trifecta of SF underground acts gone big time. You can’t go wrong here.

Tycho, 1/18–1/19, The Independent
The dreamy electronic pop act is back in town to woe you with his instrumental mind trips. And if you can’t bear to miss Segall at the Fillmore, catch Tycho’s Saturday performance.

In the Valley Below, 1/31, Rickshaw Stop
A mixture of male and female vocals, this duo (who also happens to be a couple) from L.A. have a pop-art sound akin to Stars’ earlier work. Expect synths and lyric-lead beats.
