Religious Girls, Our Brother the Native, The Present, Queens, The New Future @ the Knockout

Really fucking excited for Oakland’s Religious Girls at the always awesome Knockout. As we previously noted, Religious Girls are at the forefront of a new basement-friendly Bay Area scene reminiscent of the awesome shit coming out of LA’s The Smell. Shit is all about drums, vocals and synth – real fucking raw and apparently real fucking epic live.

While a bit gurpy, Religious Girl's sound is actually pretty approachable… if you can hang with alt-bro gods Animal Collective, you can hang with this. Think High Places meets Foot Village… but local!

Get there early to check out the multi-instrumentalist in Our Brother the Native… and definitely stick around for Queens (Scott Mou) and The Present (hyped producer Rusty Santos/Jesse Lee from Gang Gang Dance) – these dudes are like BFF with Panda Bear!
