And to follow up on my last video post of local San Francisco band Still Flyin’, here is the glorious album artwork from their first album Never Gonna Touch the Ground. One point of interest in the scene is Personal’s Pizzas, no doubt a reference to another local SF band who play the New Jersey personas of Personal & the Pizzas (they have a pizza delivered in the middle of their shows too)! They are releasing their follow up album On A Bedroom Wall in mid-May!
