Thank you for supporting Live Music! With 35 bands and 6 stages, we rocked the night away dancing to bands we love and discovering new ones. We had a great time and hope you did too. Check out LCL’s Flickr Site to find event photos and keep checking back at www.leftcoastlive.com to find out about year round live music shows in the Bay Area.
Many thanks to our volunteer photographers – Alicia Aldama, Alexander Bauzon, Aron Cooperman, Anna Larina, Darren Lien, Amy Lynden, Mark J. Sebastian and Lisa Stone. If you have any you’d like to share with us, please send us a link or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since signing to Dangerbird Records in 2010, headliners The Limousines have completed a national tour with LCL alums Neon Trees, released debut album Get Sharp, and appeared at several major festivals including The Bamboozle, Sunset Strip Music Festival and Outside Lands. The San Francisco-based indietronica duo will hit the road with The Sounds in October before rounding out the month with a performance at the Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as a “band to watch,” The Postelles weave garage pop with a post-punk sensibility. The New York quartet has licensed several songs for television and film and received ample praise for performances at CMJ, Iceland Airwaves, All Points West and Bonnaroo. Fans will have the chance to catch The Postelles post-LCL when the band joins The Wombats on tour in October. If you’re a fan of English indie rock band The Kooks, you’ll love The Postelles!
Rooted in funk, soul, Afrobeat, deep rhythms and an intimate understanding of DJ culture, Orgone has earned a reputation amongst the funk, soul and hip hop fraternity. Their track “Funky Nassau” landed them a recent Adidas campaign spot, and most of the group can also be heard on recent major recordings by Alicia Keys, CeeLo, Estelle, Anthony Hamilton, Jennifer Hudson, Solange Knowles and many other R&B/soul artists.
On his latest release Analog Drift, Chico Mann introduces the rhythms of Afrobeat to the music of Cuba, the Latin freestyle ﬂavors of 1980s New York and Miami, and the synth-heavy electro beats of dance ﬂoors across the globe.
