Tim Cohen and company put on a good show for a hometown crowd, even if I'm more than willing to admit I was primarily drawn to seeing Wax Idols and Tamaryn.  What struck me on playback is how tuneful F&Os are, along with Kelley Stoltz and Sonny and the Sunsets and the more laid-back Thee Oh Sees material, this is a signature San Francisco vibe (note: doesn't necessarily mean low-fi...)  

Speaking of which, spot anyone familiar?

Quite simply, they were amazing.  They've expressed no shame in being compared to the greats of the 80s and 90s, but tonight, they stood on their own two feet as peers.

They played several new songs which I haven't heard previously.  I don't want to blab on much, but PLEASE visit the Mexican Summer site to order their stuff if you like what you hear.

My thoughts are with Dan Treacey right now, I'm hoping he makes a full recovery!
