Tawnee Kendall
Tawnee Kendall, accompanied by her band, The Hangover Brigade, captivates audiences with her heart-felt, soulful songs, a rich, powerful voice and dynamic performances. Tawnee’s musical roots began with folk and bluegrass; the likes of Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and Alison Krauss. Over her 20 years of songwriting and performing, Tawnee has expanded into the genres of rock, jazz, and soul. Her upcoming EP features songs that range from heartbreaking to hilarious. Each one, an emotional and evocative tale. Tawnee has the ability to transport you, electrify you, excite you.

Finish Ticket
Finish Ticket is young and promising indie pop band from the San Francisco Bay Area, consisting of twin brothers Brendan and Michael Hoye, and Alex DiDonato. They formed the band in 2008, and while still in high school, quickly became recognized by many bay area blogs/tastemakers as one of SF Bay Area’s best new local acts. Now barely out of high school, Finish Ticket has self-released two EPs, “Life Underwater” in 2009 and “Shake a Symphony” in 2010 and has opened for large touring acts, such as the Smashing Pumpkins, Train, The Black Keys, Phoenix, Broken Bells, Young the Giant, Switchfoot, Awolnation, 100 Monkeys, and many more. You can hear their songs “New York” and “Rivers” played on The Bay Area’s Live 105 (FM 105.3), the top radio station in the area for modern and alternative rock music. This past summer, after a successful nation-wide college radio campaign, they embarked on their first national tour with Bird By Bird (Jonathan Devoto, formerly of The Matches), which included two radio shows/festivals put on by Live 105, and a slot on Milwaukee’s annual Summerfest music festival, where they shared the stage with Young the Giant and Switchfoot. Currently they are writing and recording new songs for an upcoming full length that will be produced by Pierre de Reeder of Rilo Kiley (Vampire Weekend, Julian Casablancas, She & Him).

Cassandra Farrar + The Left Brains
San Francisco musician Cassandra Farrar, along with the support of her Band the Left Brains, brings to life, in a fusion of folk/pop/rock sounds, Cassandra’s lyrical diary. With fun, quirky, and upbeat tunes from her guitar and ukulele, Cassandra Farrar and her Left Brains bring a variety of relatable and honest music to the table. Her unique vocals and catchy hooks will get stuck inside your brain instantly. Cassandra Farrar+ the Left Brains are proud to release their debut CD as a band, “Hello My Name Is…” Though just starting out, they are always excited to meet new folks & share their music through live performances locally and eventually globally.
