Cobi: Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, CA

I had a chance to sit and chat with Cobi prior to the night’s performance, and do a little lighthearted interview which he actually didn’t know was scheduled, but humbly endured...

What I found out was that the Minnesota born singer, Cobi is very modest, he didn’t gloat during the interview about winning a MTV Video Music Award (with his former band Gentlemen Hall) or how he just came off the road as a guest singer with the huge progressive trance group Above & Beyond, playing some of the world’s best venues such as Sydney Opera House and Royal Albert Hall…

Royal Jelly Jive: live at The Independent SF

Royal Jelly Jive came out Swingin' at SF's Independent!  The day was a special one for this fantastic group, (if you haven't caught these guys.. you must!), not only were they just featured at Bottle Rock 2016 but their latest album "Stand Up" also dropped today!  I was onsite to witness the magic these fine musicians bring to the stage and got an exclusive interview as well.  Check out more coverage on BAM Magazine.  

With support by Growwler & Kendra McKinley... this was a night to feel the music and dance!

Violent Femmes, "We Can Do Anything Tour": The Fillmore SF

I had the pleasure to cover the Violent Femmes on May 10, 2016, night 1 of 2 Sold Out dates at San Francisco's Fillmore on their We Can Do Anything tour!  And what a night this was... from the first verse, bass riff to the last drum hit, the Femmes entertained us off our happy nostalgic feet!

Candlebox, Disappearing In Airports 2016 Tour: Slim's SF

Candlebox and a packed house found themselves at Slim's SF on April 16, 2016 for a night of the beauty & misery of grunge, (cuz we all know that that juxtaposition is the sweet, sweet spot) that lured us all into that little box of Pandora's... and Thank Goodness we opened it with welcoming arms!  Kevin Martin (vox), brought a timeless performance, with spot on vocals.  Check out the night's review on BAM Magazine from Walter Morgan.

Filter "Make America Hate Again Tour" 2016: Slim's SF

Filter kicks off their Make America Hate Again tour and lands, kicking and keeping the crowd fervently screaming at Sim's SF; this all on the cusp of the launch of their newest album release, Crazy Eyes.  With nationwide and later European stops, with support from Orgy,  Vampires Everywhere and Death Valley High, Filter dropped in and pounded us into a frenzy for yet another taste of what makes them a band to still take time out to see.  More coverage from the night on BAM Magazine.

Fleetwood Mask: Yoshi's Oakland, CA

The Bay Area's own...and one of America's best Fleetwood Mac tribute bands...(hell they are even endorsed by Fleetwood Mac themselves); Fleetwood Mask took the stage and did something that does not happen at the world famous Yoshi's... They sold out the night!  

Claudette Rodriquez captures Stevie as close as they come...bringing her spirit, essence and vocal styling to the stage along with a band of talented musicians and this is Fleetwood Mask.  The photos only give you a glimpse, so do yourself a favor.. find a show they are playing and get yourself there.. promise you will not be disappointed.

Dec 10th 2015: Mark Redito, Masayoshi Iimori, Seimei, Grimecraft, Guy Akimoto &Tdoyle by AFK Presents, brought us a night of beats with their great line up!  

more coverage at DNA Lounge 

Mark Redito: AKA Spazzkid was born in Manila and lives in Los Angeles. Spazzkid has been making waves over the last few years with his lush, glistening brand of synth-heavy arrangements, quickly scooping up a following after the release of his wonderful 2014 debut. Since then he's gifted fans with the EP Promise, as well as a number of remixes and a nation-wide tour along like-minded beat-maker, Giraffage, showcasing his energetic live set. Spazzkid has given word of a new shift in his repertoire as an artist-he's changing his name. That's right, Spazzkid is no more. But don't worry kids, the music isn't going anywhere! It has simply taken on a more personal tone that is more direct and approachable! ~DNA Lounge
