We will see you down at the shore, in your canoe, and give you the push you won't admit you need.

“... 11 glistening ditties — heavy with none-too-subtle Afropop influences, strong doses of Paul Simonism, and snippets of Cat Stevensy folk…”

The Hangover Brigade
The Hangover Brigade
The Hangover Brigade was born in early 2011, when a group of musically diverse friends got together to record lead singer Tawnee Kendall’s debut solo EP, In Between Spaces.

Rehearsing mostly on Sundays, after eventful weekend nights in the foggy city of San Francisco, prompted the group to affectionately adopt their name. Mornings after whiskey-soaked evenings can feel like a deterrent for most; the Brigade turns hangovers into fuel, adding an extra layer of gritty passion to all their songs.

The Hangover Brigade captivates audiences with dynamic and emotionally-charged performances. Their songs range from heartbreaking to hilarious, each one, an emotional and evocative tale. The Brigade has the ability to transport you, electrify you, excite you.

The Hangover Brigade is Tawnee Kendall (vocals | guitar), Jeb Havens (vocals | piano), Jacob Wolkenhauer (guitar | melodica), Joe Hickey (bass) and Heidi Weber (drums).
Dad's LP's
Dad's LP's
The onset of 2013 finds Northern California-based Dad’s LPs working on their second album all while touring throughout California. Since the release of their self-titled first album in late 2011, Dad’s LPs have been surprising concert goers with their songs, rooted in rock and roll and peppered with frankness, sparkling modern pop influence, and contagious electronic flourishes. They are a band of witty lyricists, charming character, endearing optimism, and whims of goofiness that get every person in the crowd immediately dancing.

Dad’s LPs is comprised of John Morales (drums, keys, vocals), Jay Seals (guitar, vocals), Chris Twomey (bass, vocals) and Andrew Harris (lead guitar). Their influences draw from various genres, including rock, indie, and dance; their songs explore themes of love, angst, and longing. Nerdy and loveable lead guitarist Andrew Harris wins over audiences with his fantastic and impactful guitar solos that channel his musical heroes like Mike McCready of Pearl Jam.

When not found on stage together, the members of Dad’s LPs dream of moonlighting with Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem and dining with Bill Murray in hot air balloons over France. With aspirations like that, the four members of Dad’s LPs are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. “You know it feels so good, when you’re standing right next to me.” Step into the world of Dad’s LPs and become enchanted with their exuberance.
Cassandra Farrar and The Left Brains
Cassandra Farrar and The Left Brains
San Francisco-based Cassandra Farrar and the The Left Brains began when a young Cassandra met Christian Mayrena to record her solo acoustic songs. At the time, Cassandra had a strong YouTube following, but Chris, with a passion for producing and growing talented young musicians wanted to take it to another level. Chris, also a talented drummer, reached out to musicians and brought in the likes of David DeMuth (guitar) and Sean Chapman (upright bass).

As the other members joined the band, they each brought their own unique and varied musical backgrounds to influence the songs in their own way. Cassandra's folk rock roots, joined with Chris's punk rock drumming, provides an energetic upbeat feel to Cassandra's country soul. Then add on David's bluesy guitar licks, and Hip Hop / Funk undertones of Sean and you're given music with a little something for everyone to enjoy.
