Having been deemed worthy by Orange Countys tastemaking Detroit Bar, Francisco the Man! nabbed the super-coveted Monday night residency for the month of November. With enthusiasm and gusto enough to include an exclamation point as a formal part of the bands name, its nearly a given that you, too, will be just as excited about the groups mix of eclectic sounds and earthy melodies. Paired with The Sweet Sweet Things, a mod-y, fuzzy pop band from Costa Mesa, this weekly get-down is a sheer cover for a feel-good blowout of sunny rock, be it folk-twinged or 60s-stung.
