Local music gurus the Bay Bridged celebrate their 3rd Birthday Bash at the Rickshaw Stop. It includes a solid night of local music by the Heavenly States (myspace), Birds and Batteries and Geographer (myspace).

I got Delayer, the Heavenly States’ 2008 album, early last year. For me, it wasn’t immediate; rather, it took time and subtly grew on me. In the end, it’s quite an enjoyable album with a mix of straight up rockers, softer songs and a few that split the difference.

I’ve seen Geographer perhaps too many times at this point. I mean that in number only–I still want to see them again because they put on an excellent live show that brings their music to a new level from their recordings.
