by Dakin Hardwick on May 26, 2010

Every have one of those days where you can’t think of anything witty? Today is one of those days… Time to go see some live music to get inspired…

Thursday, May 27th

Adam H. Stephens, Honeycomb, Sonny Pete at The New Parish

Adam H. Stephens is most famous as the frontman of the aggressive blues rock duo Two Gallants, but that’s only a small side of this amazing songwriter. As a solo artist, he explores a much more delicate side to his songwriter, and at this evening’s show, one can expect nothing less than their heart melting.

TUNE-YARDS, Eux Autres, Social Studies, Knight School at Rickshaw Stop

Friday, May 28th

There are a lot of shows in town tonight. A lot of very good shows, that I’m not going to tell you about. Because we have our first Spinning Platters Presents show, and it’s a killer line-up at the Rickshaw Stop! Tickets are only $9.99, and are available here!

Check out this line up:

Birds & Batteries

Judgement Day

Sister Crayon

Remember, that’s only $9.99 at The Rickshaw Stop. Tickets available at Ticketfly.

Saturday, May 29th

All Girl Summer Fun Band, Still Flyin’, Cars Can Be Blue, The Art Museums, Boat at Rickshaw Stop

Despite the fact that summer is being a bit stubborn in coming to the bay area, you can always enjoy the bouncy pop punk of the All Girl Summer Fun Band, making a very rare bay area appearance this evening, and if you are lucky, they’ll bring a little bit of sun with them!

She & Him, The Chapin Sisters at The Fox Theater – Oakland

Sunday, May 30th

Mose Allison Trio at Yoshi’s – San Francisco

Mose Allison is one of the most important living songwriters. His fusion of jazz and folk helped inspire several generations of rock musicians. He basically laid the ground work for Elvis Costello’s entire career, and spawned recorded tributes from The Clash & The Pixies.

Joseph Arthur, Patrick Park at Cafe du Nord

Monday, May 31st

The Very Best, Black Nature, Disco Shawn at The Independent

Tuesday, June 1st

The xx, Phantogram at Great American Music Hall

The entire universe is obsessed with The xx, and for good reason. Their infectious & sexy blend of soul, shoegaze, and pop music crawls under your skin & you just can’t shake them off… Brilliant music, and this will be an amazing show.

Friendo, Cannons & Clouds, Wise Wives at Bottom Of The Hill

Wednesday, June 2nd

Mumford & Sons, The Middle East at Slim’s
