The Resurrection Men
For the past three years, The Resurrection Men have performed across Northern California, putting on consistently fun, dynamic, and unusually sweaty shows. Recent shows include Bottom of the Hill, Cafe du Nord, and Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco and Harlow’s in Sacramento. Their sound can best be described as rock infused pop, with strong punk sensibilities. While they are often compared to bands such as The Killers, Kings of Leon, and The Who, they would be happiest to considered this generation’s Muppets.
The Resurrection Men are Lucky Calloway (vocals/guitar), Baron Calloway (guitar/vocals), Chester Calloway (bass), Chet Calloway (drums), and Von Clemons Calloway (keyboards/hugs).
...Some time ago in a studio not so far away in San Francisco’s South of Market District…..three guys got together to write music. Soon enough their writing trio expanded to four and when they decided to add a fifth, they were a better band. This is only the beginning…As humans we have not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. We are The Threads.
This dynamic, moody indie rock band draws from a variety of influences. The band's familiar yet intrinsically modern sound has been compared to The Cure, U2, Echo & the Bunneymen, Radiohead and The Killers. Through dedication and commitment, they create a sound from material that is appealing and addicting; which they like to play and others love to hear.
In the Bay Area, there is a lot of great new music coming out each week. Bands break up, new ones begin and the buzz ensues…That brings us to The Trims,
a local San Jose outfit that has the loyal fanbase and buzz to take them beyond their locality and into a national “spotlight”. That’s why we chose them for this feature, so you can get yourself better acquainted with the artists that are happening in the South Bay Area.
The Trims have a strong sound reminiscent of early Strokes and the brit pop of the 90′s, while also conjuring the swagger of artists like Joy Division. Blend that style with over-sexed lyrics about all things scandalous, and you have the identity that defines The Trims.
Following the enthusiastic reception of their self-titled debut EP, Abatis spent several months performing throughout the bay area sharing the stage with such Nationally touring acts as: Radio Moscow, Pierced Arrows, Maylene and the sons of disaster, Lionize, and Nico Vega. The band is hard at work on their follow up LP set to be released Summer 2013, with a Pacific Northwestern tour to follow.
