"THE DARK DREAM" IS FUNDED AND WE'RE PLAYING BFD!!!
It's been a little while since I updated our website. Here's an update on a very promising beginning to this year.
We wrapped recording the new record 2 weeks ago and it's going to blow your mind. It's bigger, darker and dirtier than anything you've heard from us before. Thanks to every single person who got involved with our pledgemusic campaign. If you'd still like to donate and get some rad exclusives, go to http://www/pledgemusic.com/projects/thedarkdream.
We also would like to official announce our participation on the local stage at Live 105's BFD this year. We're so excited to put together a really special live performance for you guys. BFD is May 19th at the Shoreline Amphitheater. Other acts that night include Diplo, Crystal Method, Passion Pit, Silversun Pickups and Jimmy Eat World.
Get ready for the Summer of "The Dark Dream."
THE FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN FOR "THE DARK DREAM" IS LIVE!!!
If you would like to be a supporter and take a look at our exclusive offers at
February is almost here and that brings with it the recording of our first full length album, "The Dark Dream." We will be working with Noise Root Studio and cannot wait to get started at the end of Feb. We will also be launching a Pledge Music fundraising campaign to ask our friends and fans to directly donate to the making of the record. We are also offering some bananas exclusives like a new t-shirt, a new hoodie, a hangover disposable camera and "tour" brownies. Stay posi. Stay tuned.
We're ringing the New Year with some banging shows at some radical venues. Check the SHOWS tab to the left for full details.
Bonnie & the BANG BANG will be heading up to the Pacific Northwest at the end of this month for mini tour with our good buds Country Trash. Check out the posters below.
I just wanted to check in with you and let you know what we have coming up in the next couple months. There will be a bunch of new shows coming up in San Francisco and San Jose and a little tour North to Portland and Seattle. "Like" us on Facebook so we can keep you abreast of upcoming shows.
Also, we're right in the middle of fleshing out some of our new music. We're very excited about trying out drummers in the next couple weeks. Can't wait to debut some of this new stuff live.
It's been a long time... Shouldn't have left you... without some Bonnie news to step to... step to... Salutations Bonnie United. We are happy to report that we have been back from our Midwest Tour for over a week now. We had a fantastic time and really learned a lot about how to tour. We made some great friends in SLC, Denver, Omaha, Minneapolis and Chicago. We will try to be back out to see you all in a year or so. Maybe sooner.
In the next few months we are really going to dial back the shows and write our next release. It will be titled "The Dark Dream." It's a daunting endeavor to envision what the next record is going to sound like, but we are excited to get in the studio and put the work in. Stick around. These are sure to be exciting times.
Happy Summer everyone! We are gearing up for a very exciting two months for Bonnie & the BANG BANG. We have a bunch of great shows coming up in San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Cruz and Pacifica, so be sure to click on the shows tab and find the show you want to come see us at.
We regret to inform everyone that our band has suffered it's first lineup change. Nothing is set in stones as to his future with us, but our keyboardist Tom Baugh has made us aware of his intentions to no longer play with the band. We can't thank Tom enough for his musicianship and friendship. He added a very important piece to what has become the sound that you all know and love. We are working with a few new faces to fill in on keys live, and we are also kicking around the idea of adding a bassist for the tour.
Wish us luck as we charge headlong into the unknown this Summer at a show near you.
Thanks for everything,
What a week?! We played Brick and Mortar on Wednesday for SF Station's "The Lineup." Rin Tin Tiger and Roosevelt Radio were fantastic and it was an honor to share the stage with them. A huge thanks to all our friends, old and new, that came out and shook it with us.
Saturday night was one to be remembered. Bottom of the Hill was electric. The whole lineup was gold from top to bottom. We made some new friends in Ben Henderson, The Drowning Men and River City Extension, whose live show is something to be seen.
We're heading back into the rehearsal space to bang out a couple new tunes. Hopefully, when you see us next month, we have a whole compliment of new music to show you. Keep your hearts open and be good to one another this Summer. See you next month.
Two HUGE shows this week in the City by the Bay. Wednesday night, June 13th, we will be playing SF Station's "The Lineup" showcase at Brick and Mortar Music Hall with our friends Rin TIn Tiger and Roosevelt Radio. Address below.
Brick and Mortar Music Hall, 7pm
1710 Mission St. SF, CA
Saturday night, we are local support for the co-headling tour featuring River City Extension and The Drowning Men at Bottom of the Hill. This one's going to be a doozy. Details below.
Bottom of the Hill, 8pm

We need our friends and fans to turn out in big numbers for the Bottom of the Hill show so we can play there again. Hope to see you all there!
Alright folks, the poll is closed for OYSTERFEST. We came in a respectable second place, behind our good friends Rin Tin Tiger. So excited for the opportunity that they are about to have. Come see us both at Brick and Mortar Music Hall on June 13th. For now, this is their moment. Check them out here
And now for your moment. I have never had the occasion to be so thankful to have friends and fans like you. We don't have much to give right now, but as a token of our appreciation, we want everyone to have our EP "Ode to Darkness." Here is the link for a FREE DOWNLOAD.
