PIRATE RADIO @ Baltic Kiss

Brentt Brown and Ryan Keeley met as freshman roommates at Bucknell University in 1996 and later formed Pirate Radio in San Francisco with Brian Stein. They recorded their debut album at Tiny Telephone studios in 2005, establishing their musical style. Oren Williams and Ian Shaul joined to help finish their second album, Welcome Home, in 2007, which saw the band experimenting with country-tinged sounds and strong harmonies. In 2009, Pirate Radio released Fires in the Woods, featuring more ambitious tracks and new musical directions, before Jarret Cooper replaced Shaul, further diversifying the band's sound.

We Are The West @ Sailing Goat

"Beautiful, cinematic folk. Their live show is just a feast for the eyes and the ears." -NPR

We Are The West began way out east in a shipping container on a sheep farm in Holland, then inside an abandoned convent in Brooklyn, before growing underground in a parking garage in Los Angeles where founders Brett Hool (voice, guitar) and John Kibler (upright bass, voice) host their renowned monthly concert series (“Feels like the wave of the future.” Los Angeles Magazine).  After a series of site-specific EPs, their soulful and intricately crafted debut LP The Golden Shore, and providing the soundtrack for the film 2 Hearts (#1 on Netflix), they've emerged into the warm sunlight with a brisk and immediate collection Only One Us, their finest work yet. Jun 22, 2024, noon – 3 p.m. Point San Pablo Harbor, 1900 Stenmark Dr, Richmond, CA 94801, USA
