Tony Rojas...

We're going local today. Tony Rojas is a longtime fixture on the San Francisco independent music scene thought he's probably best known as the doorman for Doc's Clock and the guitarist/singer for Shotwell. Well Tony's gone and put out a solo record called Time To Burn and it's pretty darn good. The disc is a mix of barnstorming guitars, country weepers, and most of all straight ahead power pop. If forced to draw comparisons I'd touch on everything from The Kinks to Candy Apple Grey era Husker Du to the rockier moments of Whiskeytown. It's pretty consistently engaging and with ringing endorsements from Mark Eitzel, Dan Carr of The Court And Spark and Spiral Stairs of Preston School of Industry he must be doing something right.

I'm not really sure how much effort Tony's putting in to promoting the record which has been out for about a year now. He seems busy with Shotwell but maybe a little run on Time To Burn will prompt an interest in doing some shows. There are three downloads on Tony's site so go grab 'em; I'm posting my favorite song.
