Rin Tin Tiger is a high energy alternative twang trio from San Francisco, CA with lot’s of lyrics and lot’s of groove. The sound is often described as a blend between early Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, and Tupac. They have shared the stage with a wide range of bands from Blues Traveler to The Lumineers to Minus the Bear and a plethora of emerging talent all along the West Coast.
Through a little less than five years the band have earned a reputation for high octane live shows and a relentless work ethic, putting out three albums and an EP since 2011; all released independently. Their most recent album, BURIAL GROUNDS, came out in the summer of 2015 and is already receiving high praise.
“…they have found their sweet spot. After one listen to “Burial Grounds,” it’s easy to put it on heavy rotation in your device and sing along. Extra credit given for air guitar.”
–SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
“The trio brings back the days of old-school alternative rock, with a brainy, not-always-in-tune-but-always- heartfelt lead singer carrying the tunes.”
