New Times SLO Article

Going Big!


Local super group Still Time plays one final show at Downtown Brew on Feb. 19 before they hit the road for four months of nationwide touring, where they’re expected to log upwards of 70 shows from New York to New Orleans, SXSW in Austin to the Pacific Northwest.

Throughout California, Still Time is among SLO’s most well known exports due to the band’s extensive West Coast touring, but they’re about to spread their reach to the nation with a four month, 70-plus date tour that will hit nearly every region of the continental United States! Holy cow, Batman!

It’s the natural progression for this feel good sextet that plays hook-laden, folk rock in the Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews vein. They’ve already been added to regular rotation on commercial radio stations in both SLO and Santa Barbara counties, and they’re extra hot in San Francisco, where big crowds show up for the concerts. On the verge of making it big, the group figures the final push—the thing that will prove to booking agents, record labels, and industry insiders that they’re a serious band with a serious work ethic—is a national tour.

They recently bought a 27-foot RV, which is being converted to sleep the six band members, two girlfriends, but not harmonica player T-Bone’s dog. There are limits, people!

“We all get along great,” said lead singer Dan Curcio, “but this tour is going to challenge that! It’s going to be crowded and smelly in there.”

Can these guys survive? Hell yes, they can! All but T-Bone has been with the band since it formed in the Cal Poly dorms six years ago. Most of the band members live together on a Cayucos compound, where they sleep in a yurt, a converted chicken coop, and a shed … a very nice shed, really!

Musically, they’ve got a sound that appeals to all ages, and over their years together, they’ve become increasingly talented players who continue to expand their musical boundaries by incorporating new sounds into their pop-inflected formula.

Next Friday, Feb. 19 at Downtown Brew (7:30 p.m.; all ages; $10 presale or $12 at the door) is your last chance to see them until they return to SLO County in summer. Kapakahi and Central Currency will open.

After this year, I predict you’ll see Still Time opening for some of its heroes, and soon after that, headlining their own national tour. Today San Luis, tomorrow the world!
