I'm sad that I'll be out of town for this one -- Marnie is supercharming, and Tera Melos seem like they'd be an intense live act.

Omg, Brad, I would die if that ended up being true.
Belle & Sebastian, The National and Broken Social Scene all seem likely based on their tour dates.
Miniature Tigers plus The Spinto Band / Angel Island

Tom Waits and his wife were at this show. Most surreal celebrity sighting that I've had, yet.
Every time Miniature Tigers play I am out of town. WTF.
Man/Miracle,Baths,The Splinters, Sister Crayon, Sugar and Gold (DJ Set), Disco Shawn (DJ Set
Thu 5/20 @ Milk Bar
Man/Miracle (Third Culture) -http://www.myspace.com/manmiracle
"It seems the only person who dances at shows anymore is the blazed guy up front. The thing about Bay Area-based Man/Miracle's new song from their first full-length album, The Shape of Things, though, is that it makes me want to shelve my Puritan ways, join said guy, and flail my hands around." -Pitchfork
“The Shape of Things is an infectious collection of nervy songs recommended especially for fans of Talking Heads, The Feelies, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.” -The Bay Bridged
"Oakland's Man/Miracle caught us by surprise late last year with their stunning debut LP, The Shape of Things. With ten infectiously catchy tracks in under thirty minutes, The Shape of Things is that rare all-meat, no-filler album that you will find yourself playing on repeat throughout the day, subconsciously awaiting that self-satisfying moment where the last track ends and you get to start the whole affair over again. -7x7 Magazine
Baths (Anticon) - http://www.myspace.com/bathsmusic
"As Baths, Chatsworth, Calif.'s Will Wiesenfeld connects the dots between the sun-drenched haze of glo-fi torchbearers (Washed Out, Toro Y Moi) and the woozy beat math that lights the spliffs of Los Angeles' Brainfeeder collective (Flying Lotus, the Gaslamp Killer)." -Pitchfork
"If Toro Y Moi had the chops of Matmos and the beat savoir-faire of FlyLo, it might sound something like "Maximalist." -XLR8R
The Splinters (Double Negative) - http://www.myspace.com/thesplintersband
"Four women from the Bay Area chirpily asserting their vision of garage-pop: less hazy than Vivian Girls, less vintage than Dum Dum Girls, less stoned than Best Coast. Just unclutttered, punky, and fun." -RCRDLBL
“Girl-group sounds-meets-90s punk attitude.” – Gorilla Vs. Bear
“They perfectly channel the devil-may-care, DIY, girls-in-the-garage sense.” – The Fader
Sister Crayon (Manimal) - http://www.myspace.com/silentandclementine
"The band makes gorgeous, ghostly tunes that blur the line between lo-fi electronics (drum machines, synths) and rich analog atmospherics (organ tones, human voice)." -LA Weekly
The Black Lips, Kid Sister, Akron Family, King Khan and the Shrines, The Soft Pack, The Bronx, B.O...
