Seventeen Evergreen
is a band that seems to get around. They play Fat City, 314 11th St, San Francisco! Friday February 29.

(Note: This group is promoting itself so hard, I thought it might be worth mentioning even though music is not theater and SF is WAY OOB.)

2007 brought them to UK and Paris for live and radio appearances on BBC Radio One, 6 Music, and XFM.

The Daily Telegraph voted their debut album, "Life Embarrasses me on Planet Earth" one of the 10 best for 2007! More recent accolades from Uncut Magazine, Pitchfork, etc.

While they are busy crafting the follow up record to be released this year, they thought they'd take a break and kick out the jams with their friends Hot Tub. This from the promoters: "They deliver a heady mix of rock and electronics that is reminiscent of Air, Pink Floyd and Boards of Canada."

Support from Oakland hip hop/electro trio Hottub, plus DJ's until 4AM including DJ Sets from Seventeen Evergreen and Hottub members andSammy D (Dirty Bird, Buzzin' Fly), DJ Deevice (High on Hope), Solar (Bang the Box, Bionic), Ryan P (Gun Club) and Adnan (Forward).

Who are Seventeen Evergreen?

"With Life Embarrasses Me On Planet Earth," Seventeen Evergreen bring an intriguing new slant to Eno's notion of "nostalgia for the future" "The album's other-worldliness recalls Midlake's Trials of Van Occupanther, only with the time-machine set for the future rather than the past." - 4/5 stars The Independent UK

"Seventeen Evergreen bridge Pavement and AIR via Flaming Lips and Grandaddy to Sculpt pulsating sonic organisims that touchdown on genius. Abject brilliance." -Total Spec UK
"Lunar One, the pastoral title track of their forthcoming EP, could be Radiohead's "High And Dry" for the new millennium." -4/5 stars The Independent UK

"It's great. I particularly draw your attention to the genius of opener Music is the wine, worthy of Lee Hazlewood and Leonard Cohen. The rest is dreamy, quirky, croaky-voices, mildly smacked-out arty slacker rock somewhere between Grandaddy and Pavement." -Sunday Telegraph UK
