Peter Matthew Bauer, Japanese Guy

Fri July 11 at 7 pm.

Many critics loved erudite New York indie-rock band the Walkmen, but not this one. Sonically speaking, they struck me as one of the blandest acts of the ’00s. I saw them perform once in Orange County, and it felt like being politely force-fed mayonnaise on white Wonder® Bread sandwiches. Peter Matthew Bauer played bass for the Walkmen, so he shares some of the blame for their offenses. But his debut solo album, Liberation!, while not a bastion of innovation by any means, contains more flavor pe... more » $10/$12.

Extra Classic

Tues July 15 at 8 pm.

Named for a classic Gregory Isaacs record, San Francisco's Extra Classic show an almost too-reverent love for the reggae sounds of yore, using all-analog equipment and filling their songs with winking, dub-inflected touches. Composed of members of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and the Anniversary, Extra Classic won SF Weekly's "Best Unlikely Reggae Band" by crafting Technicolor tunes that touch on ’50s jukebox pop and modern psych, while also playfully mimicking the golden ’70s productions... more » $8.

Ryley Walker, Scott Dodson, Whitney Lyman

Tues July 22.

When a folk-oriented acoustic guitarist records for Tompkins Square Records, it means he/she’s basically arrived. That label’s imprimatur implies excellence in this style, as releases by Daniel Bachman, James Blackshaw, Shawn McMillen, Mark Fosson, and many others have proved. Add Chicago-based Ryley Walker to this esteemed legacy. His 2014 album All Kinds of You is a gorgeous collection of serpentine, spangly instrumentals and soulful, Pentangle-esque ballads sung in Walker’s deeply felt, vibr... more » $10.
