Rickshaw Stop celebrates our third year of existence with a three-day festival of our favorite local bands (and one from Sweden). Each night is dedicated to a different sound. Tonight, we're highlighting our favorite pop bands.
MUSIC FOR ANIMALS
"The lovechild of Les Savy Fav and Interpol, Music For Animals has been picking up the pace since the release of their new E.P Transmission ... But perhaps one of the best descriptions comes from a trust worthy friend who says they’re like “Quincy Jones meeting Peter Cetera for a cocktail at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory with a big ending and memorable melodic lines.” -- Zero Magazine
"Dealership has been lauded for their catchy riffs, pop-punk sensibilities and witty songwriting, and they live up to the hype." -- Sponic
"Dealership's [last] album, Action/Adventure [is full of] largely writ tales of good versus evil, love gone wrong, hostages and spies, all played with a simple, almost childlike pop feel. This is fabulous music, with the emphasis on fable." -- SF Weekly
Hello Goodbye is a catchy, yelpy, super-sweet indie-pop band made up of Swedes and Norwegians, based in Gothenberg, Sweden. The girl-fronted quartet's first LP, Heart Attack, garnered comparisons to artists like the Velvet Underground, The Cramps, and The White Stripes. One review described the band by imagining The Velvet Underground playing songs by Dead Moon, or even the Sonics.
This adorable, all-gal garage-pop trio from Oakland (with ex-members of Hawaiian Getaway) makes catchy tunes inspired by "tallboys and tall boys." Debut album out any minute on Chocolate Covered Records.
