- Event Details
First pressed on 2008’s The Bay Bridged, Vol. I compilation, Social Studies brings female vocals and a Casiotone keyboard to the standard guitar, bass and drum table. The result is an intriguing sound and a delightful break from typical pop song thematics. The San Francisco group’s new album, Wind Up Wooden Heart (Antenna Farm, 2010), will have those keys on your hip jangling to the beat in no time. The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool. He began to write music at the age of 14. He still has every scrap of paper he scribbled his terrible lyrics on and on occasion can even recall the infantile melodies and riffs that accompanied them. The release of his first album in 2009, HELLA SOLO, was an amalgamation of many of the songs that he wrote and recorded in his room from the ages of 19 to 25. Most songs were recorded late in the night. Most times there was alcohol involved. What came of those 19 lonely, depressing songs became the jumpstart to THE SAM CHASE and the many live shows that followed. In 2010, he came out with his second album, TESTICULAR FORTITUDE, which was more of the same. They were songs that would pull your heart strings and songs that would make you feel like you were just as drunk as the man singing these songs. Now, in 2012, comes the release of his long awaited first studio album, THE SAM CHASE WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY. Its aim is to blow your mind. Its goal is world peace, where everyone wins, where victory is a basic human right. If all goes according to plan, The Sam Chase will lead you there. THE SAM CHASE has had the honor to share the stage with some incredible acts such as: K.D. Lang and the Sis Boom Bang, Justin Townes Earle, Lucinda Williams, Poor Man's Whiskey, Herman Dune, The Brothers Comatose, and many more. He sees every stage, any raised surface, or any plot of land as a challenge to conquer it, and win the audience over. THE SAM CHASE is coming for the glory.
