The Corsets

Blues rockers, The Corsets have got some great tunes on their album “Are you Lonely, Are you Scared”. With vocal harmonies, f-x ridden guitar riffs, and an overall infectious groove, The Corsets have created a trifecta of fantastic-ness. “Lady” off their EP bursts open with driving guitar, and snare, and breaks into a happily addicting guitar lick. A minute in to the song the vocals get to shine in their own gritty dirty way, well, up until the face-melting guitar solo that's filled with those toe-curling notes you can’t get enough of! All in all, these guys have got something good going on, listen to the album and take the time to see 'em live - especially when patio beers can be involved! Check out their Facebook to keep up to date with upcoming shows. -Courtney Chalapenko

The Life Electric: Q&A about gear and creative process

Active since 2011, Boston's The Life Electric play rather aggressive but always melodic rock'n'roll, with psych and disco influences. Their personal guitar sound is crafted through carefully chosen stompboxes, so we decided to ask them a few questions about their gear and creative process - check out the interview on Delicious Audio.





Big Name Actors

Big Name Actors are a rock trio based in Toronto. Although part originally came from Halifax, NS. They combine Maritimes pop rock with 90's grunge for an excellent musical combo. They released their EP "Morning Sun" in May of 2014. The opening tune "Talkin To Myself" starts with a rumbling drum beat which the bass joins in simply n' smoothly. The guitar kicks in with some mini-shreds over the thumpin' rhythm as the song continues to build. It all comes together with a smooth chorus followed by a tight breakdown/bridge. Cool, catchy tune! See them July 3rd @ Bovine Sex Club with our friends Flamingo Bay and The Ballroom Babies.-Kris "Big City" Gies

Kymberli's Music Box Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary at Brick and Mortar - 6/20

Local promoter and founder of Kymberli's Music Box Presents, Kymberli Jensen has been one of the biggest reasons why San Francisco has been inundated with neo psych rock and roll shows for the past decade. She has booked countless bands including, Dead Meadow, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Spindrift, Cosmonauts and The Warlocks, and has brought influential bands like Rain Parade and Mudhoney to local venues. She has also been a booking support to out- of-town bands who relocated to the Bay Area like The Asteroid #4, and has a true talent for event coordination. She has also been known to be a big support of the early careers of local bands like Cellar Doors and The Dilettantes.

In 2005, Jensen felt the local music scene needed a female voice and her first show was with The Dilettantes (which included member Joel Gion of the Brian Jonestown Massacre) at Lipo Lounge in China Town. Other shows at Cafe Du Nord, 12 Galaxies and Bottom of the Hill followed.

Kymberli is one of the first female independent bookers in the modern Bay Area rock scene and has opened doors for current female bookers like Ash Reiter of Hickey Fest, Jessie Woletz of Seaweed Sway Presents and the young women of Our House Presents. Tomorrow night Dead Meadow, White Manna, Skeletal Sykadeliks and DJ Jodie Artichoke will be performing at Kymberli's Music Box Ten Year Anniversary at Brick and Mortar Music Hall. White Light Prism will be creating the psychedelic visuals for the show.

Make your way to this auspicious event to give thanks to a promoter who has contributed to the Bay Area live music scene for 10 years! The scene wouldn't be what it is without her.

Editor's note: Kymberli was one of the first people to embrace me when I arrived to the Bay Area as a music editor and promoter. She and I have a lot of mutual friends and history in the local and national music scene, and she has been nothing but supportive. She is inspiring and has great knowledge of the history of Bay Area and southern California rock music. It's my honor to be another woman in the music scene who shares the same passion for music, art and live performance. Congrats from the Deli Magazine San Francisco! -je
