San Francisco favs Loquat will be celebrating the release of their new album Secrets of the Sea from Talking House Records on Saturday night at Bottom of the Hill. The show will mark the end of their national tour, which looked like a lot of fun. Take a look at a few of bassist Anthony Gordon's photos from the trip, and check out his interview with SFist from last year. Also check out Loquat's pretty, new video.

We're also giving away a pair of tickets and a copy of the CD to one lucky winner. This time we're going to make you work a little for it. Write a haiku using the word "loquat" in the comments by 11 a.m. tomorrow morning, and the winner (chosen by Brock) will be announced and notified by Noon.

UPDATE: The Haiku winner is grngolet -- great job!
