I've just discovered my new favorite SF band, French Miami. Yes, the lead singer/guitarist/keyboard-player is a friend of friends, but that's not why I'm so enthusiastic. It's because the band, who played at Fat City last night, plays kickass rock-n-roll with a punkrock edge that kept me dancing (and jumping up and down) the whole set. (Which, by the way, was a relief. Because I hate that avoiding-them-so-you-don't-have-to-lie-and-say-they-were-good thing.) And the drummer, who looks like he's having more fun than you ever will, played some of the most interesting and suprrising beats I've heard in a long time -- and certainly from a local band. So go visit them at their website, and tell them to play more often, damnit.
