It’s time to get reacquainted with one of the best indie pop groups our region has ever known, Buildings Breeding. The lush, melodic-sounding group fronted by married duo Chris and Melanie Larsen will celebrate their 10-year anniversary on Thursday, Sept. 3, 2015, at Press Club. “Since 1998 I’ve recorded: 270 solo songs, 25 Holy Diver songs, 96 Buildings Breeding songs and 19 Flowerss songs,” Chris recently wrote on his Facebook page. “That’s 410 songs, (that I found on my hard drive).” He goes on to say that, “Out of all of them the Buildings Breeding songs are my favorites and back in September 2005 the first tracks were recorded. This September 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of these songs and we are playing some shows.” The group, who are originally from Davis but now reside in Southern California, have three celebratory shows lined up: Aug. 30 at Left of the Dial in Santa Ana, Sept. 2 at The Knockout in San Francisco, and the aforementioned Sept. 3 gig at Press Club, which will be their first show in Sacramento since 2009! The first 50 people through the door at Press will also receive a free copy of the band’s latest release Rad Dewd, a fantastic 10-track album that’s just begging to be the soundtrack to your next backyard summer shindig. Sharing the bill with Buildings Breeding will be two other great local acts, Arts & Leisure and Vasas. Show kicks off early at 7 p.m. and the cover is $7. 21-and-over only. Visit for more info and to sample some of their feel-good tunes. Welcome back, BB, we hope to see a lot more of you in the near future!
