Wow. What a day. 16 bands (I think I can count), including a few fantastic ones. I started the day at The Bay Bridged’s Bay Area Takeover at the Beauty Bar with French Miami. I’ve talked about these SF locals plenty before. They put on a solid set. They were tight and put a lot […]

With a simple background and a single off-camera flash, the faces of these musicians come out. Caitlin and Johnny of Two […]
