Featured Show:

SeaweedSway Presents: 
Rachel Goodrich, Raffa & Rainer, Jascha, & Spiff at Amnesia Music Hall!
Local & touring bands, old friends, new friends, bring your friends. This night is a special combo, & I'd love to see you there.

Rachel Goodrich is an American musician and pioneer of "Shake-a-Billy" based in Miami, Florida. Her music has also been described as an "eclectic blend of vaudeville-inspired indie pop, swing-jazz and country-folk."

Her first album, Tinker Toys, was self-released in 2008 to which the New York Times dubbed her as a "queen of the Miami indie rock scene". Her debut album was produced by Grammy-nominated music producer Greg Wells.

Goodrich's song, "Light Bulb", was featured in an episode of the TV series Weeds, and the song also features in a Crayola commercial advertisement. A remix of the song was made by "ANR" and used on the BT Infinity – "Light Streams" advert.
The songs, "Light Bulb", "Piggy Bank" & "Ukulele Water" were featured in the MTV show My Life As Liz.

Enjoy long walks on the beach, Star-filled nights, and ghetto booty bass.

Jascha Hoffman is a songwriter and science journalist in San Francisco. His debut album A Cure for Sleep was praised for "deceptively simple, deeply weird pop songs” that earned comparisons to Sufjan Stevens and Leonard Cohen. Jascha’s second album, The Future Limited, a collection of songs inspired by science fiction, was released in March 2012. His animated and science-fiction videos have appeared on The Atlantic and Boing Boing. He is currently working on songs based on obituaries and translations of Brazilian pop songs. 

Spiff Wiegand is best known for his one-man-band concerts. Juggling up to seven instruments simultaneously without loops or technological trickery, he creates complete textures that are as unexpectedly musical as they are visually impressive. He has been compared to artists like Hank Williams, The Mountain Goats, Buddy Holly, Hot Hot Heat, Devo, and They Might Be Giants. | video
