Rare Device
Rare Device
"A wise man once said “there are only forty people the world, and five them are hamburgers.” Rare Device - a San Francisco-based four-piece outfit - has been making music that fuses the great people/hamburger divide since 2013. Fueled by their mutual love of Bowie, XTC, The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads and Elvis Costello, the members of Rare Device write songs that speak to the universal desire for pop perfection. Future reviewers may refer to them as “crafty,” “infectious,” and “handsome devils,” but Rare Device is not letting that go to their head. No, for Rare Device, it’s all about the here and now, and tonight, they promise to make you dance, cry, laugh, sing along, forget your troubles, see with your third eye, tip your bartenders generously, and perhaps sit and think for a bit about your place in the world.”
