SHOW RECORDING


2:00pm
Vin Rouge
http://www.myspace.com/vinrougemusic
Coming from the Bay Area…… Bass driven, heavy rock songs… No love of cliche. Big drum sets, crunchy guitars, and vocal harmonies with vintage gear mixed with soft synths…


2:45 pm
AMALGAMATION
http://www.Myspace.com/AmalgamationMusic
AMALGAMATION is a 4 piece band with frontperson/songwriter Robin Lovejoy on vocals and guitar, Ivo on lead guitar, Leland Thunes on bass/keys, and Scott Ragle beatin the drums. The group is from San Francisco and has been breeding their Indie/Alt Rock sounds for the last 6 years perserverantly. Their version of Alt/Indie Rock is a combination of modern rock, classic rock, and blues with hints of spanish/middle eastern flavors.


3:15 pm
Holy Kiss
http://www.theholykiss.net/
“The Holy Kiss revs up the wall of sound while lead singer Matty Rue screams his guts out and throws the microphone cord around. Just when he’s about to crack open, the band drops into a melodic part of the song and Rue shows his true talent – singing from the bottom of his soul.”
– Tony Dushane, San Francisco Chronicle

The Old-Fashioned Way
http://www.myspace.com/oldfashionedway
Crowded around their sage leader, the rest of the OFW, who formed in 2005 and will release their first 7-inch this fall, give off the ease of a family band, though no member remotely resembles another. They’re Dickensian orphans, then, who’ve gathered to put on a minstrel show — and who’ve had to find a sound to fit their strange batch of instruments.

3pm
Oona Garthwaite
http://www.myspace.com/oonamusic
Oona Garthwaite is a Bay Area gem with a knockout voice that packs grit, power, and a hint of whimsy. She pairs must-dance rhythms and soulful melodies with candid stories of heartbreak, history, and joyful independence. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oona spent her early years singing Beatles and Aretha tunes over the blues progressions her dad taught her. With time, she etched out the tight rhymes and rapid-fire delivery that would become a trademark of her songs.

Oona will be performing at Broadway Studios on August 22nd.

The Ex-Boyfriends
http://www.myspace.com/exboyfriends

“Staying true to their successful power-pop attack, San Francisco’s Ex-Boyfriends have returned with In With, a punch-in-the-ears journey of a sophomore album. Starting off on an up-tempo note, the record demands attention from its listener, and once in command, it reveals plenty of peaks and valleys to keep a good balance in the soundscape.” – West Coast Performer Magazine

Buxter Hoot’n
http://www.buxterhootn.com

Buxter Hoot’n’s homegrown sound had its start in America’s heartland in Indiana where brothers, Vince and Jimmy Dewald lived and played music before moving to San Francisco. Songwriter, Vince Dewald, has since put together an ever-growing catalogue of songs that is both poignant lyrically and stylistically diverse. Moving effortlessly through blues, rock, country, and world sounds, Buxter Hoot’n has forged an original brand of music that is impossible to ignore.

maus haus
http://myspace.com/maushausmusic

On a vacation from indie rock, but not necessarily ready to hitchike to Nevada City, Maus Haus‘ live aura is surprisingly warm and inviting despite some of its prog leanings and non-sequitur arrangements. The set varied wildly, from fragmented pop to rounder grooves, culminating in a mesmerizing hymnal collage (reminiscent of recent Do Make Say Think) at the conclusion. Not sounding like mere retro-fetishists, -Bay Bridged
