The second night of this year's six-day celebration of indie-pop will go down at the Rickshaw Stop, and features local band Dominant Legs; a reunion show from Aberdeen, Sarah Records' Los Angeles connection; the Motifs, Aussie masters of the two-minute-song; and LA's Sweater Girls.

Here's a handful of songs from each act:

Dominant Legs - "About My Girls"

This is my favorite from last year's Young At Love And Life EP, and definitely the the one track on that album that comes closest to the indie-pop sound shared by the rest of the bill.

Aberdeen - "Byron"

This was the first single [Sarah 093] for one of the only American groups on legendary Bristol-based Sarah Records. The echoey guitars and breathy vocals are typical of the dewey beauty of Sarah, and the indie-pop genre in general.

The Motifs - "Diagonal"

The Motifs are from Australia, and their songs are short and sweet.

Sweater Girls - "Pretty When You Smile"

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
