UrbEx 4.0 Featured Music Site: The Merry Andrews

Share on Nextdoor

For this week's forthcoming Urban Explorer’s Handbook, Creative Loafing is mapping out the Bay area’s Internet community. Here is one of our featured music sites:

The Merry Andrews

Who runs it: A 20-something trio of passionate but playful Bay area indie rock aficionados: Aly Carr (whom we've recruited as a contributor to our own music blog, Tampa Calling), Ashley Renee and Marc Karimi. They co-host a weekly internet radio show and a website that spotlights underground and indie bands with interviews, tour info, in-studio performances and MP3s. (Proof they don't take themselves too seriously: A "Merry Andrew" is an Old English synonym for clown.)

Why you need it: If you want to know anything about up-and-coming indie rock and pop groups, this is the site for you. Though Aly, Ashley and Marc don't limit themselves to acts that are coming through town, you can count on finding something about said acts (and music clips) on the Merry Andrews site.
