Reptaliens Announce Cali Tour

When former members of BRAINSTORM, Wampire and Blouse creatively combine with parts of Fog Father, you get an indelibly lo-fi, twee, garage pop-like sound à la a cocktail of Cults, Beach House and Ariel Pink that is impossible not to lovingly drink up. That cocktail comes by the name of Portland group Reptaliens, and they're taking their delicious sounds on a musical ride down the West Coast.

Reptaliens as a group may be newer, but its members are vets in the Portland music scene that know their way around a tour or two. This upcoming week-long excursion will find them starting out with their tour kickoff as part of XRAY.fm's benefit show and making their way down to the sunny skies of Los Angeles for a few shows, before stopping in Eugene on their way back up to Portland.

Check out Reptalien's tour dates below and be sure to see them off properly at Dig A Pony!

Milk Was A Bad Choice at The Milk Bar Showcases Religious Girls GuMMyBeAR The Classical and Eitch TONIGHT

Every Wednesday, San Francisco based bar and venue, The Milk Bar hosts an event showcasing local talent called, Milk Was a Bad Choice. This week, Bay Area artists Religious Girls, GuMMyBeAR, The Classical and Eitch will all be playing this ongoing event.

Oakland mainstays, Religious Girls have been perfecting their performances down to an art since 2008. Making the bold choice to play on the floor rather than a stage, they strive to have both the audience and performer on the same level. Playing their own brand of experimental pop which is heavily dependent on harmonies and percussion with intricate time signatures, we're sure that Religious Girls will wow audiences tonight!

Another Oakland based artist, GuMMyBeAR is well known for playing experimental "glitch" hip-hop. Their instrumentals for the most part, creates light and airy beats. The Classical, a San Francisco based group, brings their style of subdued avant-garde indie pop to the table. And finally, San Francisco and New York based artist Eitch, pronounced, "H" has made a sound all her own. Striving to make music with equal parts alternative, electronica and pop, she has coined the term "altronipop" to describe her music.

Be sure to see all of these artists tonight at the Milk Bar! - Erin Dage
