Join us in the Empress Garden for a free neighborhood event with performances by Kid Trails, Many Worlds, Disguised As Me, & Chatoyance.
Oakland's Kid Trails is the brainchild of Oakland's Patrick Jeffords, who writes and performs all instruments for Kid Trails, with the exception of drums, which are handled by Andy Woodward. Jeffords moved to Oakland about two years to make music with some high profile friends in the local scene, but I'll let the quality of his work stand on its own for now. Kid Trails makes fuzzy, dark pop that sounds not quite like anything out there today, although it did make me think of that great Edwyn Collins track from 20 years ago.
Myke Johnson is the artist, brain, and producer behind Many Worlds with a release out called "Patience EP". Myke Johnson has been recording, writing, and for many years influencing musicians to do the same. Many Worlds is covered with tantalizing synthesizers chiming acoustic guitars cloaked in a galactic warp of grooving rhythm samples you need to hear. Many Worlds hails from Oakland, CA.
