Mesh Magazine Presents
Hey Willpower (www.myspace.com/heywillpower)
Casy & Brian (www.myspace.com/casyandbrian)
$8 before 11PM/ $10 after 11 PM
Mesh Magazine presents another night of reckless abandon at the Rickshaw Stop on Friday, March 30th, featuring performances by headliners Hey Willpower, Rubies, Casy & Brian with DJs Jenny Young and Omar keeping the dance floor moving all night long.
Hey Willpower returns to the stage having kept a low profile over the past several months, making this a highly, highly anticipated performance. Having toured with the likes of Le Tigre & Scissor Sisters, collaborated with Peaches and Annie and unabashedly declared their love of dance pop music, Hey Willpower knows how to turn the party out. Frontman Will Schwartz (Imperial Teen) is joined by Tomo (Tussle) and two masterful backup dancers who gel together to create an unforgettable show. Sorry JT, but Schwartz has been bringing sexy back for years.
Rubies was started by Simone Rubi of Call & Response, who has since been joined by Terri Loewenthal (also of Call Response) and Amy Cooper, who, as a solo artist has been blowing audiences down south since she moved to LA from San Francisco a couple years back. Together, they create smooth, poppy, danceable songs that soothe in a sweet, not saccharine manner. The band is defined by its beautiful harmonies over organic beats. Rubies is set to release its debut album this fall.
Openers Casy & Brian landed in San Francisco via Seattle where they were turning out house parties and clubs as Catbees with an intense drum and keyboard electro-thrash sound. Imputor Records is set to release the duo’s debut this summer, and they have steadily been gaining much notice in the Bay.
Plus, two of the best DJs in the Bay Area, Jenny Fake & Omar (Popscene).
