James Conner
James Conner has been writing, recording and performing music in the Bay Area for nine years. Originally from New Jersey, James moved to San Francisco in 2003 and released ‘James Conner: For The Industry EP (iTunes, CD Baby).’ Featuring fast electronic music and spoken-word vocals the first EP and the subsequent full-length record, ‘James Conner: A Year In The Light Of My Life’ (2007) mixed elements of Aphex Twin, Nine Inch Nails, and David Bowie into a dark fusion of brooding angst. It’s now 2012 and James has returned with his second full-length record. Turning his attention to Indie rock, the new record, ‘San Francisco (Good-night In Dreamland) (iTunes, CD Baby)’ delivers a cohesive blend of Indie Rock, 90’s Alternative Rock, and some elements of Jazz. To capture the songs on ‘San Francisco’ James recorded with Nic Pope for a year at Different Fur Studios in the Mission. James has enlisted Nathan Bennet (on guitar) and Alex Aguallo (on drums) to round out a powerful trio to bring ‘San Francisco’ to the stage.

Spiderheart
Spiderheart
Spider Heart is a four-piece garage rock band hailing from Oakland, CA. With a sound and feel of a runaway freight train with squeaky brakes slamming head on into a glitter factory Spider Heart delivers its blues driven rock n roll through reverb soaked guitar riffs, pounding rhythm section and dark, devious lyrics wrapped up in sweet yet sinister melodies. The band has sourced The Stooges, The White Stripes, The Kills, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, The Cramps and Tom Waits as some of their major influences.

Formed in late 2011 based on a mutual love of vintage sounds, dive bars, juke boxes and questionable evenings followed by puzzling mornings, Spider Heart has spent the last year honing in on their grinding sound and electrifying, smokey live shows.

They released their DIY LP entitled Voodoo in October 2012 and are currently in the studio working on their first EP entitled Under the Gun due for release in January, 2013.

Band Members:

Lisa May: VOX, guitar, percussion
Rip Reed: Guitar
Jeffrey Archer: Base
Julien Bloit: Drums
Chingadero
Chingadero
Crankin' out Post-Apocalypse blues for these pre-Apocalyptic times..... A soundtrack for that old Cadillac stranded on the dirt roads of a broken, Lynchian dream... Or a Scotch filled campfire night.... Rik Murray pours out his lost soul through his vocals, resonator guitar, slide, and a boot on the hardwood floor.
