Moonfox
Moonfox
MoonFox is a bone clattering, boot stomping, San Francisco based rock and roll band. Formed in the embers of 2011 by songwriter and lyricist Danika Ingraham, the group is a vehicle for bringing her nightmares and fantasies to life through the ritual magick of song. Taking inspiration from the poetic anarchy of Patti Smith, the world weary cynicism of Tom Waits, and the hellish fury of Nick Cave, MoonFox seeks to forge a sound instantly recognizable and approachable, with a heavy dose of introspective and emotional lyrics that eat away at the psyche of the listener long after the music ends.
Prize
Prize
Prize is an electronic pop producer and singer set to release her remixtape ranging from trap-lite to chillwave to melodic tech-house to indielectro and back. Listen for glittering synths, swaggering beats, impressionist poetry, and an astral-level singing voice that is at once sweetly vibrant and richly compelling."Prize's emotional urgency makes for a thrilling live show" (MVRemix) while "meshing her given skills with the toys of the future" (Emily Savage, SFBG).
Mammoth Life
Mammoth Life
Mammoth Life is a female fronted, dream-pop quartet from San Francisco. Soaked in reverb with coursing organ and electric guitar, this band falls somewhere between Weezer's Blue and current releases by Tennis and Beach House. ML's debut LP will be out July 31st via Satisfying Records.
The Liz O Show
The Liz O Show
A Liz O Show is like no other show in town. There are stuffed bears and drunken sailors and bawdy pirates and crowd-surfing ponies. There's glitter and crayons and kazoos and cupcakes. There are people dancing around in party hats and wigs. There is merriment and frivolity and sheer unbridled fun.

And at the base of it all are stellar stories, told through song. Liz O has been compared most frequently to Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and "Ani diFranco on Prozac" for her songwriting abilities, while her whimsical, surrealist aesthetic draws comparison to Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. As for her guitar playing, its firmly rooted in the rhythms of the blues, influenced and inspired by legends such as Bo Diddley, Jimmy Reed, and Howlin' Wolf.

Arriving in San Francisco with just a guitar and a backpack in September of 2010, Liz O quickly put together a band that reflected her vision of 60's era rock n' roll with a layer of sparkles on top. The band got to work recording her debut album, Golden Gate 8, after a successful Kickstarter campaign that culminated in spring of 2011. The funding ran out with still more music to be recorded, so Liz O has been working hard to chip away at the album piece by piece, and with a new burst of activity coming up, it should be ready for release by summer 2012. Meanwhile, she has been developing the live show, and it's one you are guaranteed not to forget. Come check it out for yourself!
