The Downfalls

band webpage

The Downfalls are a San Francisco indie-rock trio that wraps the sweat-dripping riffage of post-punk powerpop around a creamy melodic guitar center, all glazed over with a thick swam-of-angry-bees-in-your-face fuzz bass and tom-tom fury. The band has been a Featured Artist on (where they have been downloaded over 40,000 times) and has brought their high-energy “RAWK” show to stages throughout the Bay Area.

The Illness

When you come to see The Illness, you don't come to chill. Lead singer Josh Viers made this abundantly clear when he took the stage and started yelling at all the Kimo's patrons who were standing around and idly sipping drinks. But make no mistake; it is Viers who demands the most attention. Like a puppet to its master, he let the aggressiveness of the music control his nervous system. He was a dynamo…

"Thanks to our lessons I am able to sustain longer notes more confidently and consistently, not to mention my throat doesn't hurt at all the day after a brutal show. Now that's really a pretty amazing achievement.

Before I started doing our lessons regularly I just got used to my throat being totally raw after a gig. So, thanks again for your outstanding help. It is making such a noticeable difference that I can easily imagine going on tour for weeks with little concern for damage to my voice." --Josh Viers

The Denver Post recently said about LICK’s live show: “Singer Keri Kevorkian fronted their performance with a voice that mixed Grace Slick’s with Cocteau Twins’ Liz Frasier’s at times, and then sheered through the center of your skull at others with the scream of a mythical, tortured banshee.

The Blank Slates are an alternative indie rock band formerly based in San Francisco, now moved on to New York and Nashville. The Blank Slates came to fruition three years ago when Andrea Iacopini moved to San Francisco, California by way of Bologna, Italy. He was classically trained on violin for over 10 years when he taught himself how to play guitar. While being a member of bands spanning multiple genres, he began writing his own music. Andrea wanted to write music that people could feel. He turned this vision into ‘The Blank Slates’.
