noo wop pop tropicalia
Past Members: Nat Leich, Howe Pearson
O Presidente calls two places home: San Francisco, the land of garage psychedelia, and Wesleyan University, the school that spawned such acts as MGMT, Santigold, and Das Racist. Drawing from 50s Doo Wop, 60s Garage Rock, and Brazilian Tropicália, they've developed a following on the East Coast college circuit and in the Bay Area, where they've played venues like Hotel Utah and Bottom Of The Hill.
Sami Bass, vocals
The SHE'S are four natives of San Francisco who grew up as best friends in a city brimming with music. Inspired by their surroundings, each other, boredom and surfer boys, they began writing and performing their own brand of west-coast-garage-pop. They have played with touring bands such as GIRLS, The Morning Benders, Magic Kids, and Dominant Legs.
A recent write up in The Bay Bridged sums up what many have said:
"We have reported on The She’s in these (web) pages on several occasions, so of this night let us say primarily this: you can scratch “teen” off in front of “band.” This is one of the best bands in town, period. Their songwriting, their vocal arrangements, their tight playing and their polished yet completely unspoiled, cheery stage presence put them head and shoulders above volumes of their drinking-age peers."
The SHE'S first full length record was released on November 29th, 2011.
Christina Boyd - voice, synthesizer, percussion
Max Gardner, Ian Staub - guitars, percussion
"Metacomet hail from the quiet hills of San Francisco, and have steadily been churning out some of the most thoughtful, pastoral, butterfly-inducing, guitar-based new-age-dream-pop of recent years. Tech shredders Ian Staub and Max Gardner hold down the guitar duties, and powerful vocalist/keyboardist Christina Boyd takes center stage. Equal parts harrowing and precisely musical, Metacomet are a band to fully embrace. Imagine a slightly more accessible Charalambides jamming with Mick Turner or even Julee Cruise and you get only kinda close. Very, very pretty music."
