Vincent Gargiulo National Park
Vincent Gargiulo National Park
The VGNP is from Oakland and is the brainchild of filmmaker/musician Vincent Gargiulo. After several years of soundtrack and solo work, he decided to form a proper rock 'n' roll band before he became too irrelevant. With former Forrest Day players Jeremy Greene & Jasper Skydecker, Giggle Party member Ian Mesey, and newcomer Alisa Damaso, the 5 piece have put together a eclectic array of songs that they describe as kitsch rock. Drawing comparisons from They Might Be Giants, Talking Heads, and the B-52s, they put on a theatrical live show ruminating about sofas, homemade pornography, mermaids, Sammy Davis Jr. ruining your Christmas, and more. Their debut album came out Oct. 19 and is currently being supported with a new video every week.
The Muted Jewel Tones
The Muted Jewel Tones
The Muted Jewel Tones is a band that focuses on three-part harmony, laughs, and weird instruments. The band is comprised of Cassandra Lindop, Raena Frohlich, and Rose Koron. The three met at SF School of the Arts, and it took way too many years for them to decide to form this band. Cassandra Lindop is a professional jazz/opera singer with an amazing knack for songwriting. Raena Frohlich is just about one of the most fun people you'll ever meet, and a talented ukulele and guitar player. Rose Koron is a dog walker, a musical theater singer, and an essential member of the band because she plays train whistle.
Chief Enablers
Chief Enablers
Chief Enablers are a five piece San Francisco Bay Area rock band with more than a decade of history playing under that name. The band's interpersonal roots go back much farther than that, to gigs with 80s Modern Rock and Thrash Funk bands on the San Francisco scene. With three singer songwriters in the group and a long timeline, the band has a very eclectic sound, which can wander from raunchy to funky to poppy or quirky and beyond. Continually refining its sound, the group is getting bluesier, jazzier and jammier as it ages, while still showing it's roots. The group has gigged throughout California, from Hollywood to Lake Tahoe to Gold Country and all around the SF Bay Area. The band appeared in the 2011 indie film 'The Selling' and also appeared in a Canadian instant messaging company's soundtrack in 2007. The band's novelty song 'Are You Online?' about the then-new Friendster social network was an internet-only hit back in 2003, reposted across the web. The band was active on myspace before myspace added band profiles to their site and Chief Enablers still somehow manage to have more than 10,000 myspace friends.
