Shortcircles

When: Fri., May 11, 9 p.m. 2012

Kevin Meehan, who you might recognize better as San Francisco indie events guru Epicsauce, has been throwing regular free parties in the Lower Haight recently, and much of the talent showcased has been Oakland-based. This month, he'll present Shortcircles and Chucha Santamaria. The latter is the pleasure-cruise Latin disco duo that you may have seen on the cover of the Express back in March. The former is the new full-band realization of a promising under-the-radar solo project. Matt Tammariello has been making electronic music on his own for a while, and when we met in October he was only a softspoken member of a large collective of East Bay electronic acts. With a new record deal on Plug Research, though, Tammariello has completely come into his own, with each new composition more engaging and different than the next. He's recruited a four-piece band well stocked with vintage analog gear to help give his pieces a proper treatment.  Both bands will perform at t Underground SF (424 Haight St., San Francisco) on Friday, May 11 at 9 p.m., free w/ RSVP, Epicsauce.com
