Hey, does anyone know if there's an indiepop night at the Attic in San Francisco? When is it?
Or was it at the Makeout Room?

I'm supposedly planning a tour of south Mission dive bars, and I'd love to drag everyone to an indiepop night :-)

It is called "Teenage Kicks" and yeah, it is at the Attic. It normally is the second Friday of the month, but I believe it has been moved to the second Thursday of the month temporarily. They have a facebook group, which is probably the best way to get info. about it.

Nothing musically happening in San Diego. The music scene is so hard. Punk core, emo core, is there still such a thing as grunge? And anything that is aired on Fuse. The only 2 radio stations that claimed to be indie became mainstream alternative and have completely catered to the sk8tboarding youth. They've lost the listeners from the glory days of early alternative in the 80's. I don't listen to radio ever anymore for music.

But I love San Diego. I was raised in L.A. and I'm glad I no longer live there.
I love S.F and pretty much anywhere in the Bay area.

It's all going off in LA. Not only do you lucky Angelenos have the fab club nights Hungry Beat and Anorak City, but you now have Black Candy every Thursday at Little Cave in Highland Park!
There's more than one use for every part

oh, and don't forget part time punks. not STRICTLY indiepop, of course, but they've definitely dipped one foot in...

and yes... it's getting interesting out here in la la land. i still remember the early 90s when it seemed as if every cool indiepop happening was in san francisco. but times change. los angeles appears to be the west coast capital of indiepop these days!

and sadly it's a bit wasted on me. i rarely go out anymore. sigh. must get out of the pajamas one of these evenings!
= )

someone out there should organize an l.a. popfest...

It's ages away yet, but we're planning a trip to the States next year, planning on a whistlestop tour of Las Vegas-San Diego-Los Angeles-San Francisco.

Any 'must see' things that might not feature in guidebooks or things to keep a check on much appreciated. It seems like an impossible job to fit so much into two weeks.

I lived in Los Angeles for a year, 2 1/2 years ago, well south pasadena/highland park. I enjoyed the surrounding golden hills.

I like Sacramento a lot and have a couple good friends there, but maybe it's not touristically the most interesting place. Still, nice town, with cute houses with porches and incredible farmer's markets.

If you're visiting all the way from Sweden, don't just do SF-LA-Vegas, your soul will be crushed. Fit in a stop at Yosemite for a couple days. There shouldn't be a problem getting a hotel room (or tent space) if you book now.

Failing that, drive slowly down the coast along CA-1 (during the day; you will likely drive off a cliff into the ocean at night) and take your pick of cute towns to stop in.

Definitely second the recommendation for Yosemite, went there in September and thought it was a great place. Meant to be even better earlier in the year when there's more water about.

I like the bit North of SF around Sonoma County as well

Hi Californians! I'm going to be doing some research at UC Berkeley for two weeks at the end of June. I guess this is a bit cheeky, but would anyone be able to put me up, or know anyone who would? I can pay in hugs, (Horowitz) songs, cleaning etc. or even real life money. Am happy to crash on sofas and whatnot. Please let me know by PM if you can / would like to - i'll be massively in your debt if so. Thanks! x
It is no coincidence

Hello! I'm going to be in Los Angeles between 6th - 9th April and in San Francisco between 10th - 16th April.

Are there any regular clubs or things going on while I'm there, or any gigs or anything? And do you have any recommendations of things we simply must do?
