This month we kick things off Phantom Kicks, a band we’re super stoked about. They recently played a show sponsored by Wiretap Music at San Francisco’s Cafe Du Nord, along with Bad Bibles, a band who also played Wiretap’s benefit to protect Glen Cove back in June. We’ve got Bad Bibles’ set from that Glen Cove benefit concert, as well as the set by James & Evander from that show. Hope you enjoy!
Today’s show is even better because we have the distinct pleasure of informing you that Glen Cove has been saved from the bulldozers once and for all! The two Native American tribes that were fighting to protect the land officially signed a “cultural easement” deal with the city of Vallejoy giving them the right to determine how Glen Cove — a burial ground and sacred site — should be preserved.
