Rickshaw Stop, August 22nd.
We've been working on this record- our first full-length album-- in SF's Tiny Telephone studios for close to two years and finally are going to share it with everybody. Stay tuned for more info!
We haven't been updating this site too much this year despite some great shows- The Bay Brewed with our dear friends the Tumbleweed Wanderers and a hometown show in Oakland at Leo's with Waterstrider stand out in particular. Thanks to everybody that has asked us about finally getting this record out there- we think it'll have been worth the wait!

We're all very excited with how 2014 is shaping up so far... our first trip up to Portland, a show opening for The Kooks at a sold-out Great American Music Hall, and now the release of our first new music of the year. The tune, "The Good Life", was written by our bass player Charlie Moore and has been a staple of our live shows for years. We decided to take it in a different direction in the studio and think it will surprise anybody that's heard this song before in a live setting. We've been logging a ton of hours back in Tiny Telephone studios and can't wait to share the results with everybody- keep posted for more new singles throughout the year.
Our first headline show of the year is this FRIDAY at one of our favorite spots, Bottom of the Hill, with some old buddies in the band Big Tree. Hope to see you all there!

We're all very excited to share our latest creation with all of you on December 5th at SF's Brick & Mortar Music Hall. The tune is called The City Line, and it's yet another effort with our producer/engineer/general wizard/unofficial 5th member of the band James Riotto made over a long weekend at Tiny Telephone Studios. We're spending a few days in there every month and will be releasing our first full length album once we have enough music!
We'll be celebrating with two great local acts Bonnie and the Bang Bang and Growwler. I honestly think this is the best sounding track we've made yet and hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it!

We're incredibly excited to be throwing down for our third annual Elkfest! This has quickly turned into one of the best nights of the year for us and its looking to be the most legit lineup yet, including Elkfest mainstays Tumbleweed Wanderers, as well as Waterstrider (afro-psych), Cha Ching (cumbia, salsa, hip-hop), and Cowboy Starr (rock).
Attendance has skyrocketed year by year so we've had to limit the tickets available for sale- PLEASE buy in advance so you don't get turned away at the gates. Buy tickets HERE.
More info can be found at the Facebook event page.
As with previous Elk-outings, food and music start at sundown and go well into the night. We also recommend getting there nice and early in the day to lock down a good camping spot and to engage in all the festivities. See yall then!

Very excited to be teaming up yet again with Ghost & the City at Bottom of the Hill. Joining us will be Fortress Social Club from LA. We have some VERY special plans for the set but don't want to give too much away yet... watch this space!
May 19, 2013
Here are the dates for our national tour. There might be one or two additions along the way so check here for updates!
If you're interested in helping us make our way across the country and back, we've begun a KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN. There are some great awards on offer and the money will be huge towards helping us reach a wider audience across the country.

We're just a few short weeks away from our EP release party with our buds the Tumbleweed Wanderers (who, incidentally, are ALSO releasing a new EP) at one of the bay area's finest venues. After a few months in and out of Tiny Telephone Studios we've finally wrapped these recordings up, and we're incredibly excited to show them to everybody!
The extended radio silence on the site is also due to the fact that we've been spending most of our time booking a national tour for this summer- we've already locked down dates all the way across the country and back, but there are a few stragglers... the full lineup will be released in not too long so stay tuned for details!

We're all incredibly excited to be back at the Rickshaw Stop on Friday, Feb 22nd. We're co-headlining with a brilliant local act The Seshen, who you really should check out it you haven't already! Also in support is another fantastic local artist Ash Reiter... we've had the pleasure of playing on some very strong bills in the past and this is right up there!
This is also a big night for us as we'll be releasing the first single from our forthcoming EP. The track is a major step up from all of our previous recordings and we're itching to share it with everybody! The Seshen will also be releasing a new track, so this is looking to be a big night!
You can grab tickets HERE.

Howdy folks. While the new year honeymoon/hangover period is probably behind us, all of the gentleman in Guy Fox are getting very excited for the next few months. Most pressing are shows with new buddies Brolly at the Hotel Utah January 16th, followed by a little jaunt down south to SLG Art Boutiki on the 18th (facebook event page HERE) and a two more shows to be announced shortly.
Also on the agenda:
Also, worth mentioning that our EP and latest single are now both available for FREE DOWNLOAD on our bandcamp page.

Yes yes, everybody! We're just about a week away from our biggest show to date. Bottom of the Hill has been extremely kind to us over the past year, providing a fantastic setting for us to support the Tumbleweed Wanderers and Bright Light Social Hour. This time out we'll be headlining for the first time and are celebrating by releasing a new single (our drummer/singer Petey's tune "Home"), available as a free download.
The lineup that's been put together is completely stacked! Semi-motown-revivalists Ghost & the City will also be releasing a new single (!!!), while the fantastically talented Picture Atlantic and Graham Patzner (of Whiskerman) will help ensure this is a night that isn't to be missed.
We also need to thank the 100s of people that made the trip out to this year's Elkfest a few weeks back. It was truly a special night, and something tells us that we'll see many of you next year in the woods for more live music, roast pig, slip'n'sliding, woodfire hottubbing and late-night dance partying.
See you all on November 30th! Get tickets in advance here.

Ah yes... it's that time of the year again. Last year's Elkfest was a truly special occasion, and we expect this year to be bigger and better in pretty much every way. November 3rd is the date of the next campout/festival/goat roast/bocce extravaganza, with Tumbleweed Wanderers and the Rainbow Girls in attendance on the musical side of things.
And in keeping with a short tradition, the boys in Guy Fox have put together a little musical invitation which can be viewed HERE. It may not be able to compete with last year's invitation for utterly bizarre vibes or Petey's unerring ability to stare at the camera without blinking, but we tried.
Full details can be found at the facebook event page-- the only necessities are a tent and $20, and rumor has it a bathing suit wouldn't be a bad idea...

We've had the pleasure of being on some ridiculously strong bills in the past month- sharing the stage with the likes of The Bright Light Social Hour, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Song Preservation Society and the French Cassettes just to name a few.
Luckily for us, the trend looks set to continue with next week's show at Brick & Mortar Music Hall. We're incredibly excited to be playing another show with SF's very own DRMS, a Guy Fox favorite and personal friends to boot. If you have yet to check out their debut album, it can't be recommended highly enough! The two groups will be supporting fellow east-coast transplants Big Tree.
The genre-bending fun begins at 7:30pm, as B+M is also hosting a Hardly-Strictly pregame event later in the evening.
You can get tickets in advance HERE.

The Milk Bar is a beautifully dark space great for dancing and great for the makings of some impromtu dance jams. Thus, Guy Fox is stoked. Also notable, the Fox is teaming up with Elkfest homies the Tumbleweed Wanderers. This is taking place on Saturday, Sept 8th. Don't miss out!

Alright folks. Our biggest show yet is slated for Friday, July 6th at the Rickshaw Stop. This is one of the best venues in the city and is not to be missed!
The concert is celebrating Pine and Battery's new EP release, and we'll be joined by another band that's toured extensively across the west coast in Caught in Motion. CIM also happens to feature the fantastic Graham Roggli on drums, who will be joining us on stage to lay down some epic percussion skills. We're also looking forward to some inter-band collaboration on stage. See y'all there!

First off, we'd like to thank all of the people that have come out for some great shows recently- returning to Brick & Mortar to open up for The Royal Southern Brotherhood was a blast, as were our recent guerilla-style performances on Haight St and with some local friends in North Oakland along Telegraph ave.
Our next blow-out is rapidly approaching... once again we'll be teaming up with the Tumbleweed Wanderers, and the bill we've put together is looking fantastic. The uber-talented Whiskerman are headlining, with Steve Taylor kicking the show off.
So come on down to Cafe du Nord on June 8th! Check out the facebook event page here
It's also worth noting that the last show we played with these guys sold out, and this venue is a bit smaller... so we high recommend purchasing tickets in advance- you can do that here
Also, don't forget that our debut EP is available on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify!

Hey ya'll. We are really excited to announce that we are playing at Bottom of the Hill on Friday, March 9th. This is probably the band's favorite venue to see shows because of the great sound and good vibes. We are going to play with our close friends the Tumbleweed Wanderers and Fox & Woman. It will be a great night to enjoy all bands and we'll certainly keep the energy levels high. We also have some new material that we can't wait to drop. If this one is half as fun as some of the shows we've done with the Tumbleweeds recently it's going to be one to remember.

Join us at the Boom Boom Room on Tuesday the 14th for the first show of our new residency! We'll be there the second Tuesday of every month... and what a better day to start than on Valentine's Day? This gives us a great excuse to jam out on some good old-fashioned soul music to complement our set.
Joining us is a brand-spanking-new salsa/international party act, Cha Ching. This is going to be a dance party you don't want to miss!
If you're not in the mood already, check out this new jam from D'Angelo... and if that doesn't do it for you, you might want to stay at home next Tuesday!
