  • The Wrong Words

The Wrong Words are one of Oakland's most tuneful young power-pop bands. We dug the charming, jaunty tunes and funny videos of their self-titled debut, and are excited to premiere the first single off their upcoming second album, "And It's Not So Pretty." The tune is still very much in line with the group's energetic guitar-pop, but with stronger melodies and sharper hooks than what we heard on the debut. "And It's Not So Pretty" will be on Everything Is Free, the Wrong Words' second album, which Chicago label Trouble in Mind will release Sept. 17. Hear and download the new song below, and catch the band performing in S.F. Friday, Aug. 16, at the Verdi Club with comedian Kurt Braunohler, the Business, and more.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
