Raw Moans, an up-and-coming electro act, is continuing to gain internet fame. One of the duo's tracks, “Aqua Net,” appears on Fuck Dance, Let's Art: Sounds from a New American Underground, a new compilation put out by K7 Records that—appropriately enough—highlights the recent phenomenon of bands gaining popularity via the internet.
The Shakedown Bar (3048 Midway Drive, Loma Portal), a punkrock dive that opened its doors last month, will hold a grand-opening celebration from Friday, Oct. 15, to Sunday, Oct. 17. The Bugs will perform on Friday, Rezurex will play Saturday and Lee Ving & Blag Dahlia will perform Sunday.
Israel Putnam El Americano, the solo project of T Putnam Hill, who's moving to Austin, Texas, later this month, will perform a going away show at Tin Can Ale House on Wednesday, Oct. 13. Cascavell and Bleeds will play, too.
Singer-songwriter Gill S.O.T.U. will mark the release of his new record, Flawed American Male, at Queen Bee's on Friday, Oct. 15. Elaine Faye, Jerrica Escoto, sojourn, Rob Deez, Meaghan Maples and Deacon Blair will also perform.
