Different Fur Studios will be celebrating Valentine’s Day this year at Swedish American Hall with Starred. The band has been making waves with their Prison to Prison EP which was co-produced by the studios own Patrick Brown and after garnering much attention from playing with Courtney Love to rave reviews, the band is ready to come back to San Francisco.
Liza Thorn and Matthew Koshak of Starred were introduced to each other at the Swedish American Hall in 2009, making this the perfect venue for their homecoming show. Alongside The Sister Ruby Band and other special guests, this will make for not only a memorable moment in Starred’s career, but also a romantic evening for Valentine’s Day whether you’ll be swaying hand in hand with your significant other or rolling love-scorned solo.
Thursday, February 14th @ Swedish American Hall
Doors 7pm / Show 7:30pm
Comprised of Liza Thorn and Matthew Koshak, Starred originally met when Matthew had mixed Bridez. By two years later the two were inseparable, living and creating together in Los Angeles on their first EP, ‘Prison to Prison’ After a year spent figuring out how to compliment each other’s styles and personalities while using ones strengths to reinforce the other’s shortcomings, Starred relocated to Brooklyn. The duo is currently working on their first full length album as well as other solo endeavors, film scores, and production on friends and label mates recordings together in their new adopted home in New York.
The Sister Ruby Band
The Sister Ruby Band is the LA-based psych-rock project of Marlon Rabenreither, Carlos Laszlo, and Sam Thornton. Chasing diamond-cut melodies through a channel of swooning, manicsound, SRB evokes the dark undertow of the trio’s West Coast roots. Buzz Bands LA’s Kevin Bronson says “Sister Ruby’s woozy wall of sound isn’t too far from the reverb-soaked shimmer of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and, when the guitars are turned down, that trio’s excellent excursion into Americana, ‘Howl.’
Following a debut cassette EP Turtles, Magnets, Animals, and several digital single releases, SUNBEAM RD. has finally completed their debut LP BREATHERS. The record was recorded at New, Improved Studios in Oakland with engineer Carlos Arredondo as well as vocals and overdubs recorded in their homes.

The LP will be available on 12″ deluxe vinyl October 30th, and released digitally October 23rd and distributed worldwide via iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, Etc..
