We showed up at The New Parish early and loitered around the courtyard, waiting for the show to start. Karega Bailey took the stage and we walked into the bar which was slowly filling up with patrons. Emily positioned herself near the stage and Karega started performing.

Vague Lanes is a darkwave duo from the East Bay. The band consists of music scene veterans Mike Cadoo (Gridlock, Bitcrush) and Badger McInnes (Here We Burn, After the Apex). With already an album “Foundation & Divergence” on the Swiss Dark Nights label and a sell released EP “Cassette”, the duo favors driving drum machines and sparse synth ornamentation as a backbone for their dual bass guitar amalgam. Their music carries the classic post-punk ideology while adding modern detail.

Every night out in the BayArea poses the same question: where are the hot queer people going to be? The answer to this last Tuesday, November 21st, was at The Regency Ballroom seeing London-based artist Blaine Muse, known on stage as Shygirl. Despite the 88 mph winds and sleeting rain, the venue was packed wall to wall with gays bedecked in black leather and futuristic shades that would not have been out of place in a Berlin club.

San Francisco-based artist Namor released his first album, Mile High Club, on February 24th.  With influences including Giorgio Moroder, Mike Dean, and Daft Punk, Namor has developed a versatile, Pop/R&B style of alternative production with electronic elements, gathering various vocalists to collaborate and shine on the silky-smooth tracks. This first album has a little bit of everything for everyone, as some songs follow the classic “four-on-the-floor” drum patterns and others dip into smooth hyperpop breakbeats.
