The SF Eagle is a leather bar, a fixture of San Francisco’s SOMA gay scene, however they’ve been having live shows on Thursdays for years and these have recently restarted. We went down last week for an evening of Bay Area punk and rock, and a record release party for Atomic Tide.

Erik Core were a last minute addition as the original opener had to cancel. Describing themselves as ‘Acoustic punk’, the sound was very bass-driven and melodic.

Atomic Tide are straight-up rock’n’roll. Singer Lydia Taylor brings fantastic energy to the stage, and the band are tight, focused rock. This show was a record release party for their new EP, “Night Crimes” on Big Tuff Records.

The Vaxxines are high-energy punk from Oakland, CA. We’ve been following them since they emerged from The Pathogens during the pandemic. Recently lead guitarist Noah re-joined and new singer KC joined the band, upping their stage presence and sound. In October they plan to release another EP on Bandcamp and tour Japan.
