Sit Kitty Sit
Kat Downs - Vocals / Piano Destroyer,
Mike Thompson - Drums of Thunder
-from San Francisco, CA

-San Francisco-based Hard Piano Rock duo, Sit Kitty Sit, takes the stage. Armed only with piano and drums, this fiery team lets loose an expertly manipulated balance of blow-your-mind power rock and virtuosic intricacy that leaves audiences screaming.

sks1In May of 2010, Kat Downs (Good Natured Mortals/Sparrows Point/Saints of Ruin) and Mike Thompson (Big Nasty/Tokyo Raid/Cougar Kick) teamed up to experiment with the combination of classical piano and rock drumming. Typically described as “The Dresden Dolls mixed with PJ Harvey and a dash of Muse”, the music they create also reflects evidence of Zeppelin, Beethoven, Rush and Rachmaninoff.  The combination of Kat Downs’ ornate hands and hair flying with Mike Thompson’s percussive mastery makes this duo the consummate definition of a “dream-team”. No holds barred, this group produces addictive rock n’ roll – with only two people and not one guitar in sight.-

The Go Ahead
KYNA WISE: Lead Singer
ALEX MAMELOK: Bass, Vocals
JOSH HERTZ: Guitar, Vocals
-from San Francisco/Los Angeles, CA

-8 year Bay Area music scene stalwart The Go Ahead has evolved a lot from the early, funk-jam-band side project featuring a motley crew of best friends. Since their start, they have matured into a sound that mashes the glossy distortion you’d hear at The Bronze nightclub in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, while tossing out angsty harmonies that would pleasantly float around the dock of Dawson’s Creek. And in that time, they have steadily gained a following.
While there are a few eye-and-ear catching features to their sound and live shows (lead singer Kyna Wise’s gritty exuberance, for starters), The Go Ahead isn’t the vision of a singular individual with backup pieces. Rather, the band employs a more decidedly egalitarian mode of music making. Every member has equal ownership of the band: No one is the designated writer or composer, so they all, in turns, pull their creative weight and lend their unique perspective to the music. The result is work that can range from brooding, to grungy, pop-y and everything in between, all in a 45 minute set.
