As I plugged previously, there was an ipickmynose presents show last Wednesday with Geographer and Two Sheds (myspace), Friday Mile (myspace), Marabelle Pheonix at Annie’s Social Club in San Francisco, CA, USA, World.
I’d never been to Annie’s and getting there before the music started, I had a chance to check out the place. It’s sort of a quirky shape, with the show space next to and parallel the bar/ entrance area but separated by a wall for the most part. But with a photobooth, a pool table, a decent selection of beer and a generally chill atmosphere, I liked it.
Marabelle Phoenix and Friday Mile ended up playing nice background music to catching up with or meeting some cool people like Emily and Ben from the Bay Bridged, Will from New & Used Records, the Deli SF and Joe from the Don’ts. I did manage to solidly pay attention to a chunk of Friday Mile’s set and it was pretty enjoyable indie rock. I’m sorry I can’t review their performances much beyond that.
Their album’s great, but I really like their new songs like the EP material (“WTF”, “You”, “Alive”) and even newer stuff (“Mindwrecker”). One new thing about this show was Hannah from Friday Mile sang harmony vocals on a couple songs and hers and Caitlin’s vocals sounded great together.
Geographer closed out the night. It was getting late so the crowd was thinning by this point. Again, I’ve seen this band a number of times by this point and I always have a good time. They make the heads bob. They also manage to fill a room with their sound even though they’re only three people.
