Mist and Mast

We’re playing Saturday!

Hey folks, sorry about the break. I’ve been obsessed with sailing, mike has been coaching his kids’ multiple sports teams, dan has been working on his padres embroidery and craig has been waiting at the practice space wondering if he got the date wrong. 

But we’re playing again! Starting at the Wandering Goat this Saturday June 1 in Eugene, Or. 

We’ll have a bunch of these at our record release show this Thursday at Bottom of the Hill in SF.

Show review from The Bay Bridged

Mist and Mast has at times been a permanent four-piece, but over the long haul has been primarily the product of main guy Jason Lakis. He wrote, played and recorded the band’s self-titled debut, and about half of the second effort, Action at a Distance. The full band that recorded the other half has since reshuffled, with only guitarist Craig Adams remaining. Lakis is back to solo recording with a new album, Mist and Mast Follow a Bad Map, due out soon.

Mist and Mast play an angular, heady, wound-up version of regular-guy indie rock. The tunes are anchored down by persistant hooks crafted from minor chords, half-step riffs and other slightly off-kilter flourishes. But it all makes sense as a backdrop for Lakis’ solo vocals.

The place had filled up with enthused fans by the end of their set, but there was little time to savor a good show with a cross-town treck on hand.

Busy week!

This Thursday Dan and Jason will be doing a little interview on Radio Valencia, promoting the Mist and Mast show on Friday at the Hemlock. Then, on Saturday we’re playing an outdoor house party in Davis. Get in touch if you’d like to come by.

THIS SATURDAY at the El Rio

This Saturday (July 2nd) we’re playing at the El Rio. Somehow, the vibe of this place (is it the cheap beer, the huge outdoor patio…not sure) is just right for a great summer drunken weekend show.  We’re playing with our friends B and not B (middle slot) and Hate Factory (opening). Come on out, it’s going to be fun. The El Rio is on Mission just past Cesar Chavez (3158 Mission) Oh, and did we mention that we have our old bud (and Red Thread bandmate) Dan Martin on drums? Yes.
