The Glowing Stars on SF Weekly’s All Shook Down Blog

 

If you’re in San Francisco this weekend, be sure to check out Convergence MMXII and the Fourth Annual J-Pop Summit at Japantown Peace Plaza. We’ll be playing a free show right outside at noon! SF Weekly’s music blog All Shook Down wrote a cool article about it today titled “The Video Game-Inspired Music of S.F.’s J-Pop Summit: A Chiptune Off the Old Block.

This is our last local show for a while, and the last show before we kick off our mini Northwest tour with crashfaster, minusbaby and more! First, we’ll be hitting up Slabtown in Portland, OR and playing with awesome Portland punk rock band The Bloodtypes on Wednesday, August 29. Then on Thursday, August 30, we’ll be playing a pre-PAX showcase at Funhouse in Seattle with Danimal Cannon, Freaky DNA and more!

See you at the shows. xoxo
