Show Info

Dogcatcher: There’s something magical that happens when four musicians come together from four completely different backgrounds. For Mountain View’s Dogcatcher, the result is a mellow, subtly-intense blend of soul, jazz, folk and indie-rock. Their first album, KILR, was a quiet folk-oriented solo album Heine wrote while living in San Diego and digesting the Iraq War he’d recently returned from. After KILR, Heine returned to his hometown, Mountain View, and formed a proper group, plucking musicians out of totally different bands to create an eclectic, genre-defying sound. On Dogcatcher’s second album, It’s Easy, the four members demonstrate that they have truly come into their own. The Midnight Snackers (midnight set): Never ones to look something cool in the mouth, guitarist/saxophonist Dylan Haas and drummer Ralph Patterson of whiskey-soacked, half-ironic glam rockers Aftershocker teamed up with bassist Aaron Sankin and multi-instrumentalist Brendan Ahern of art-damaged weirdos Dubious Ranger with the intention of creating garage rock at its most raw and primal. The Velvet Diplomacy: Dubious Ranger: If you like Beck, Tom Waits, David Bowie, Radiohead, Nick Cave, Talking Heads, and Lou Reed, you'll probably like Dubious Ranger. We play groove-centered, melodic tunes, and in lieu of a drumkit, we play with a percussion ensemble using homemade or found instruments. Audience participation is encouraged.
