Come see the Egg at the Uptown, Oakland, tonight.

 

Thunderegg, On Dolphin, Annie Bacon & Her Oshen, and Maximillian at the Uptown. That’s where it’s at tonight. In honor of the absurd rocking that will occur, our friend David Colón of Behind the Mynd laid down this slammin’ little promo jingle. See you there!

Electric Egg at San Francisco Fallfest, Sat. Oct. 10

Fallfest1-910x400-910x400

The Egg is stoked to be playing a two-hour set, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Meals on Wheels San Francisco Fallfest on Embarcadero this coming Saturday, October 10. The event, sponsored by San Francisco Magazine and KFOG (and Duvel beer) among others, will be packed with the finest offerings from restaurants, wineries, cocktail makers, and epicurean artisans—and who can say what the epicurean artisans will do—all to benefit Meals on Wheels. Roem Baur goes on first, from noon to 2 p.m., and then it’s full-band electric Thunderegg. Come on out for some killer rock for a good cause.

Thunderegg and Victor Krummenacher at the Lost Church, Fri. Oct. 23

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

Mark your calendars for Friday, October 23: The sweetest show in town will be Thunderegg and Victor Krummenacher at the Lost Church, 65 Capp Street, San Francisco. (Facebook event is here.)

Victor is a founding member of Camper Van Beethoven, on the short list as one of the best American indie-rock bands of the late ’80s. Between them and R.E.M. and the Replacements and the Pixies, it was like Kershaw vs. Greinke vs. Arrieta vs. Bumgarner for the 2015 NL Cy Young Award. (Hüsker Dü was Max Scherzer.) Thunderegg, as you know, is a beloved SF/Oakland band with dozens of albums and hundreds of songs since 1994. Two of those albums, C’mon Thunder and Line Line, and our latest 7″, “Ten Sleeves” / “Big Cigarette,” were recorded with Alan Weatherhead, who used to be part of Sparklehorse, whose first album was produced by David Lowery, who was another founding member of Camper Van Beethoven, along with Victor Krummenacher. 

What we’re saying is, come dig the nexus.

Doors at 7:30pm.
$10 in advance and $15 day of show online (click here) and at the door. Such a good deal. Such a beautiful place to hear music. Come join us.

Next show is a big one: 7″ RELEASE AT VIRACOCHA

Your next chance to see some live full-band Egg coincides with a full-blast party celebrating the release of our new seven-inch, “Ten Sleeves”/”Big Cigarette,” Friday, March 27, at Viracocha in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District. The tunes were recorded 100 percent analog at Tiny Telephone studios by the amazing Alan Weatherhead, then mastered by Bob Weston, whose “2000 Shellac bass rig is well-documented.

If that weren’t enough, supporting us will be Chuck and Cheryl of the great SF power-pop band the American Professionals, performing as a rare pas de deux.

We are terribly excited. The new recordings are awesome and we’re playing them awesomely. Advance tickets—some with special prices that include HQ digital downloads or the record itself—can be purchased here.
