 indie rock
The Bye Bye Blackbirds
 British Invasion guitar-pop with a twinge of country and roots
The Real Numbers
 power pop

Stephen Loase, Jordan Meyer, Mark Colwell, Andy Francis, and Forest Bohrer.
-From San Francisco, California.
-The mixture of indie rock songwriting, dreamy lyrics, and heavy elements of rock and pop rhythms has long been a staple inthe alt-rock world, and Sunrunners delivers on all counts. A California-based quintet led by singer and primary songwriter Stephen Loase, Sunrunners have largely managed to avoid the usual rock cliches, injecting a uniquely rock-influenced sound and laid back San Francisco style.

Sunrunners is a Bottom of the Hill favorite, and everyone who has seen them play can agree that they are a force to be reckoned with.

The Bye Bye Blackbirds 
Bradley Skaught, Aaron Rubin, Ian Lee, KC Bowman, and Lenny Gill
-From Oakland, California.
-Torchbearers for harmony laden guitar pop in the 21st century, The Bye Bye Blackbirds have pooled their talents to create a sparkling blend of country and roots influences, classic 60's guitar pop, 70's power pop, contemporary indie rock and the college radio heroes of the 1980's. 

The Real Numbers
Lawrence Grodeska, Dave Ambrose, Adam White, and Chuck Lindo
-From San Francisco, California.

-The Real Numbers share a love of powerful melodic hooks, beautiful harmony and concise, well-crafted compositions, and display all of this backed with lush chords and big melody. Their debut album, Welcome to the Numberhood, conjures an era of songwriting come and gone from commercial airwarves, but carried on by the likes of Fountains of Wayne, Ben Folds, and The Feeling. Not afraid to embrace geekdom or plant tongue firmly in cheek, their smart yet smart-ass lyrics make mundane observations meaningful, amusing, or both.
