The Richmond Sluts

The Richmond Sluts The Asteroid No. 4 and Black Mamba Play Brick and Mortar TONIGHT - 1/31

Hailing from the Richmond District of San Francisco, The Richmond Sluts have been playing in the underground garage rock scene since 1998. Revved up rock with a psych and punk sound, they are influenced by The Rolling Stones, The Clash, The New York Dolls and The Stooges. Having gained notoriety with their self-titled full length LP released in 2001 on Disaster Records, The Richmond Sluts have played alongside bands such as The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

Blending psych, shoegaze, folk and even 70’s country, Asteroid No. 4 has seen a revolving cast of musicians come and go alongside founding core members Scott Vitt, Adam Weaver and Eric Harms. Playing since the late nineties and having toured the US, UK and Europe extensively, the band ranges in influences from Echo and the Bunnymen to The Flying Burrito Brothers among countless others. 2006’s “An Amazing Dream” was considered by fans and critics alike to be the group’s first album that displayed a sound completely their own and absolutely electrifying.

Formed in 2009, Black Mambas from Los Angeles range in sound from bluesy to garage to glam, with influences from The New York Dolls to The Joneses. The Mambas have a spirit about them that is exciting, young and fresh, and their debut full length is out now on Wild Records. - Tyler Weeks

The Richmond Sluts The Asteroid No. 4 Lolita (Reunion) DJ Joel Gion Perform at Brick & Mortar TONIGHT

TONIGHT at Brick & Mortar there will be an array of psych rock bands performing who have been in the scene for a number of years. The Richmond Sluts, hailing from San Francisco’s Richmond district, have a sound that will get you dancing and grooving. Their song, “Take You Home,” has a 90’s punk feel that intertwines with a new psych garage rock revival kind of sound. The Asteroid No. 4 has a much more psychedelic rock tone, bringing less intensity, but more melodic and organic sounds. Their song, “Wishing Well” portrays a new psychedelic feel providing a more lyrical based compositional style. Lolita will be reuniting for one show after their break-up in 2006. Their song, “Heartbreak You,” brings together some guitar shredding with a psychedelic foundation. DJ Joel Gion, of Brian Jonestown Massacre, will also be bringing some tunes throughout the night.

The Deli Magazine San Francisco highly recommends you catch this show tonight! -Victor Casillas Valle
