NOW PRESENTING…Little Bridges + The Hundred Days

January 13. 2011 | By Julie Dyer

Usually a hip-hop club, the Shattuck Down Low in Berkeley is showcasing an unusual lineup featuring two up-and-coming Bay Area bands on Friday night (1/14), and I for one, am pretty excited about it. Now presenting…Little Bridges and The Hundred Days.

Little Bridges is unique in their style and delivery. They heavily embrace bizarre instrumentation (hello toy pianos and tubular bells!) and melancholy lyrics all while tying in memorable riffs, punching bass lines, and sing-a-long choruses. Once you see these guys play, you’ll get hooked on their charm and talent.

On the other end of the scale, The Hundred Days are a breath of fresh air with their Britpop-meets-Interpol style. Breathy, moody lyrics rip through peaking melodies, and the synchronicity is a dead-giveaway for how much effort they put into their presentation.

Bottom line, both of these bands are great songwriters and performers.

Here’s where to check them out:
