Oakland’s newly spawned band, Mare Island, is an amalgamation of members from Loma Prieta, The New Trust, and The Velvet Teen. Their new single, “Anon,” sets a familiar scene while instrumentally taking a serene journey over the river and through the woods. Give it a listen via SoundCloud below.

Mare Island is playing their first show in San Francisco at Bottom of the Hill this Sunday, December 11th with Petaluma’s Trebuchet and Ryan Wong (of Cool Ghouls). The bands are donating 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales for this show to Fire Relief Fund at www.youcaring.com (https://www.youcaring.com/firevictimsofoaklandfiredec232016-706684) organized by Gray Area Foundation for the Arts to help the survivors and families of the victims of the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland.

Tickets to the show can be purchased here for $10 or at the door on the day of the show.
