BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘Hey Big Bang’, The Superhumanoids

Posted on: No Comments

Seeing as the multiplexes have been clogged up with infinite numbers of superhero movies these past few years, you’d be forgiven for thinking that The Superhumanoids was a brand new film full of mindless explosions and headache-inducing 3D effects. Well: not only would you be wrong, but you’d be denying yourself the opportunity to check out a great band. The Superhumanoids are a Los-Angeles-based quartet whose mission statement is to create music which ‘kisses the doldrums away’. It’s a mission they’re evidently succeeding in, as you can see in the video above: an exclusive performance of ‘Hey Big Bang’, taken from our SXSW showcase archives.

And if you want more of these guys (who wouldn’t?), SF locals can swing by Cafe Du Nord on Sep 3 – next Monday – to experience ‘em in the flesh.

BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘In And Out’, A B & The Sea

Despite hailing from Wisconsin,
there’s a definite streak of Sunshine State joy running through this rocking five-piece – something which only intensified following their move to California in 2009, and has been building ever since, leading up to the release of this year’s debut LP ‘Constant Vacation’ (available to buy September 5, and available to stream for free right here).

Before you check out those links, however, you really should take a look at this great – and exclusive – performance of ‘In And Out’, taken from the epic SXSW showcases we wheeled out last year. And if that still hasn’t satiated your live fix, lucky SF locals can catch them at Popscene at The Rickshaw Stop this Thursday!

Up for a little bit of genre-mashing this fine Tuesday? Well, we hope some folk-rock alt-country indie-pop motown-tinged bluesy classic rock floats your boat, because that’s the remarkable concoction we have on offer from San Francisco’s very own Vandella, a supremely talented four-piece who stopped by BAMM HQ a while back to treat us to an exclusive rendition of ‘Leaves.’

Like what you hear above? (Helpful hint: if you don’t, you should probably get your ears checked – waxy build-up can really hamper your musical appreciation). Well, if you happen to be in SF tomorrow (the 29th August) you can catch these guys live in Union Square. Perfect summer evening entertainment.

BAMM.tv exclusive: ‘Thank Ya’, Con Brio

How do Con Brio manage to combine their expert grasp of funk, soul, jazz and blues into a simmering whole and make it all seem so effortless? We’re stumped. Hopefully you’ll be similarly amazed when you check out this killer impromptu performance of ‘Thank Ya’, shot while on the road to SXSW 2011 and dragged out of the BAMM archives ‘classic’ folder for your enjoyment.

Aaaaand if you’re a San Francisco local, you can catch these fellow San Francisco locals at The Mezzanine this Friday. Details can be found here.
