Since the release of Young Daze in 2014, gravelly voiced Travis Hayes has been churning out guitar-heavy indie-rock bangers that are as contemplative as they are lively. Hayes, who is celebrating 10 years of living in San Francisco, will take the stage at The Independent, along with two other local acts, Vandella (from San Francisco) and M. Lockwood Porter (from Berkeley). Porter will play tracks from his upcoming folk-rock album, How To Dream Again, while Vandella will bring a much-needed female touch with sultry, throaty vocals from frontwoman Tracey Holland. For a triple-dose of hometown acts, each with their own interpretation of rock, don’t miss this night.
With M. Lockwood Porter and Vandella, at 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15, at The Independent. $12-$14; theindependentsf.com.
