The Real Numbers
The Real Numbers
More than ten thousand bicyclists and pop music enthusiasts have watched the Real Numbers' light-hearted sixty second viral video homage to “the Wiggle” –a popular one-mile, zig-zagging bicycle route from Market Street to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. To coincide with 2013’s Bike to Work Day, The Real Numbers launched a brand new pop opus. Entitled “1-2-3-4-5”, the new CD features their popular PSA ode to the city’s favorite bicycle route “the Wiggle” as well as songs celebrating runaway guitars, Godzilla, and the catchiest tune you’ve heard about counting since Sesame Street.

The Real Numbers conjure an era of songwriting that may have come and gone from commercial airwaves, but is still carried on by the likes of Fountains of Wayne, Ben Folds and Fastball. Not afraid to embrace geekdom or plant tongue firmly in cheek, their smart yet smart-ass lyrics make mundane observations meaningful, amusing or both while catchy melodies stick like peanut butter to the roof of your skull.

The Bobbleheads
The Bobbleheads
The Bobbleheads are an indie “sunshine pop” band, based in San Francisco, CA who have been recording and performing since 2003.
The American Professionals
The American Professionals
The American Professionals take cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt and fear, pepper them with melodic twists and lush harmonies, then shoot them out of a cannon at your earholes. Sometimes they get quiet, pretty, ethereal, even a bit spooky, then turn around and blow stuff up again.

For 2013, The Ampros bring their latest record “We Make It Our Business”, produced by Michael Romanowski at Coast Recorders in San Francisco, CA. No longer a one-man-band operation, this release features ten songs written and sung by both multi-instrumentalist Chuck Lindo and bass player, Cheryl Hendrickson, as well as a blistering cover of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings’ “The Way It Goes”.
Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes
Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes
Since the summer of 2001 Eric Friedmann and The Lucky Rubes have brought their smoky take on vocal-based Telecaster rock to venues up and down California and in the UK as well. A multi-instrumentalist and accomplished producer, Eric has been a fixture in the Bay Area music community since the mid-eighties, and has played in countless bands on various instruments up and down the West Coast, the Midwest, and in Europe. In 1992 he founded Solana Records, and has recorded and released albums by some of the Bay Area's most exciting talent. He is also the proprietor of The Sandbox, a small recording studio in the Sunset District of San Francisco where the really big stars come to record when they're sick of Hyde Street. 2013 sees The Lucky Rubes back after a break with an exciting all-new lineup:
