San Francisco Buskers Play CD Release Show at SOhO on December 7
OH, CALIFORNIA: As holiday decorations go up and seasonal nostalgia sets in, it becomes harder and harder to avoid the deluge of Christmas music pouring through speakers across the country. If you’re looking for music that’s light on the jingle bells but heavy on the warm ’n’ fuzzies, I encourage a trip to SOhO Restaurant & Music Club this Friday, December 7. It’s there that San Francisco quintet the California Honeydrops return to town for a CD release show in support of their latest, Live!
Born out of busking gigs in the San Fran public transit system, the Honeydrops’ live set offers an energetic mix of bluesy brass and beats and classic R&B hooks and harmonies. Still, the band embraces the grassrootsy vibe that’s emanated out of the NorCal music scene for decades, and in live-album form, their sing-alongs and jammy breakdowns feel instantly familiar. This is music to groove to, and it feels perfectly suited for blustery nights and dancing close. The California Honeydrops play a 21+ show at SOhO (1221 State St.) at 9:30 p.m. Santa Barbara stomp rockers Rainbow Girls open the show. For tickets and info, call (805) 965-7776 or visit sohosb.com.
