THE GOOD LUCK THRIFT STORE OUTFIT
"Their two-step, harmony-filled ragers have the crowd jumping and swaying…"
-The Bay Bridged
Likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Bros. to Asleep at the Wheel they most often defy categorization, usually settling for some hybrid of Americana, folk, rock, bluegrass, and that sweet, old country & western. They describe their efforts as trying to make good, honest, insightful music, that’s not afraid of a good time and a little fun, that people will move their feet to, and that also goes real well with a straight road and a long drive.
RIN TIN TIGER
"Upbeat Dylan-esque tunes...these guys bear watching"
- SF Weekly
Rin Tin Tiger is an Alternative Folk trio from San Francisco, CA. Comprised of brothers Kevin (songwriting, vocals, guitar) and Sean E. (bass, vocals) Sullivan, with Andrew Skewes-Cox on drums and additional vocals. The music carries an emphasis on lyrics, organic musicianship, and raw energy — showing traces of Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Tupac and Morrissey while retaining a sound that is contemporary in an electronic-drenched world. They have participated in San Francisco's NoisePop festival and San Jose’s Left Coast Live music festival; alongside headliners Ok Go, Yo La Tengo, and Neon Trees.
"sounds like a loose and raucous collaboration of Steve Earle and Kurt Cobain on a hot July front porch night"
