Scissors For Lefty
Scissors For Lefty are an indie rock band, based in San Francisco. They released their debut album, Bruno, in 2005 on Rough Trade Records (UK)
Scissors For Lefty is a San Francisco Band with a sophisticated pop style combining elements of Indie, Yesteryear, & Dirty Glam. They are about as playful as an arty pop band can get: melodies in between melodies, jangly guitar, glittery keyboard, galloping propulsion from a 6 foot 10 drummer, all fronted by heavy-breathing tales of romance and counter-culture glow. The group clearly sounds like they are enjoying themselves. Cute, sexy, and a little terrifying.
Scissors For Lefty has played all over the United States and the United Kingdom, including tours with the following bands: Arctic Monkeys, Dirty Pretty Things, Erasure, Smashing Pumpkins, Metric, Panic at The Disco, Blonde Redhead, Block Party, Queens of the Stone Age, The French Kicks, Locksley, The Matches, The Fiery Furnaces, Semi Precious Weapons, Kaiser Chiefs, Rykarda Parasol, Elephone, Black Heart Procession, Suffrajette, The Pigeon Detectives, Paolo Nutini, Ben Kweller, Juliette & The Licks, Grandaddy, The Bravery, The Bloody Heads, White Lies, Mr. Loveless, and more...
Scissors For Lefty have released two albums; their 2005 debut, Bruno, self-produced and released by the band (on Rough Trade Records in the UK), and 2007's Underhanded Romance, which was released by Eenie Meenie Records on June 12, 2007. The album was released on the iTunes Store on May 29, 2007.
Their anticipated 3rd album “Bangs & Lashes” makes its debut on June 15th @ Bottom Of The Hill.
The video for its title track "Drugstore Perfume" released on May 6th, 2013.
Three of the band's members, Bryan Garza, Peter Krimmel and James Krimmel, met in San Luis Obispo while attending college, and later moved to San Francisco, where they currently reside. Bryan's uncle Robby joined the band in 2002.
The band consists of two sets of families - Bryan and Robby Garza, with Peter and James Krimmel. An additional Garza family member, Steven, joined the band in late 2006 on bass guitar, to allow Robby to play guitar more often during shows.
Local radio station, Live 105, chose the band to play on the main stage of their BFD 2007 festival, along with Bloc Party, Social Distortion, Queens of the Stone Age, Interpol, and Kaiser Chiefs. Each year, Live 105 chooses a local band they think has a good chance to be successful, and gives them a chance to play to a much bigger audience. BFD was held at the Shoreline Amphitheater on June 9, 2007.

Jon Smith (Vocals), Brett Zadlo (Bass), Colin Crosskill (Drums), Jimmy Chen (Guitars/Keyboards)
The Hundred Days —not just the name of Napoleon's infamous run— alludes to the amount of time it took eponymous Bay Area post-Indie, alt rock band to craft their debut album Really? Brought together by Craigslist, these four musical studs from such far-flung locales as Pennsylvania and New York are on a mission to rock (and have a killer time while doing it!)
With driving rhythms, soaring guitars, textural keyboards and powerful vocal melodies, The Hundred Days push indie/alternative rock in new directions.
Bryan Aguirre - Lead Guitar
Billy Brady - Drums
Gabriel Maciel - Vocals and Rhythm Guitar
Tadashi Mori - Bass
In the Bay Area, there is a lot of great new music coming out each week. Bands break up, new ones begin and the buzz ensues…That brings us to The Trims, a local San Jose outfit that has the loyal fanbase and buzz to take them beyond their locality and into a national “spotlight”. The Trims have a strong sound reminiscent of early Strokes and the brit pop of the 90s, while also conjuring the swagger of artists like Joy Division. Blend that style with over-sexed lyrics about all things scandalous, and you have the identity that defines The Trims.
The new band from Rebecca Gone Bad (My First Earthquake) and Michael Cobra (King Loses Crown).
With her high energy vocals, his grit-pop guitar and a drum machine, these two are making dirty garage punk pop that falls somewhere between The Beach Boys, Blondie, and Bikini Kill.
