Beginning with what is shaping up to be an incredibly exciting show on November 30th at Slim’s, The New Up has announced a string of California shows that promise to keep the band somewhat close to home, as they continue to work on the beginnings of their next album. Presented by the Bay Area’s premier alternative radio station Live105 and featuring DJ Aaron Axelsen on the turntables, the band’s first San Francisco show since they were featured at Noisepop back in February – and their first Bay Area show since being featured at the BFD Festival at Shoreline Amphitheatre in June – guarantees to be an exhilarating night of music from a group of San Francisco’s upper echelon of bands. Co-headlining the night with The New Up is Two Gallants drummer Tyson Vogel’s latest project, Devotionals, which has garnered attention for their heartfelt but familiarly troubled blues-laden numbers. In addition, the night will also feature high-quality bands like Fake Your Own Death and Smokin’ Ziggurats.
Setting off from there, the band will hit a new venue (for them), Winters Tavern in Pacifica, CA. In recent years the venue has acquired a reputation for featuring some of the best live music the Bay has to offer. Since being taken over by a new owner/booker, who simply goes by “CJ”, the venue has renewed their commitment to providing local Pacifica residents with a place to see quality live music. The next stop is The Crepe Place, where The New Up had a raucous show the last time they came through back in April. If you’re in the area, you most certainly won’t want to miss out on this opportunity to have the maximum amount of fun seeing a live show possible. And teasing what’s to come next year, the band is also announcing a show on February 3rd at Smiley’s in Bolinas, a small coastal town in northern Marin County that is known for removing street signs to keep the tourists away. This is an absolute one-of-a-kind show, where you can catch The New Up in a special venue in a special town, while getting just a little bit more up close and personal than usual.
