FORREST DAY – BAY AREA BASED ALT/POP BAND
Fans of Forrest Day have learned to anticipate the music going in new directions all the time. Whether it’s a jump-up-and-down, mania-inducing battle chant; a fist-shaking, sing-along anthem; a tear-jerking ballad; or head-bobbing hip-hop verses with catchy-as-hell hooks, audiences are attentive, receptive, and want more.
Much anticipation and rumor has surrounded the second full-length release from this Bay Area Writer/Producer/Performer and his extremely tight band. The debut release came out in 2011, and much has happened for the band since then. Beyond playing a ton of shows and dealing with label/management transitions, this time has been spent constructing something gigantic- an epic of sorts, that has been almost entirely self produced…
ELIQUATE – SANTA CRUZ BASED INDIE/HIP-HOP BAND
Eliquate is a live indie / hip hop group based out of Santa Cruz, CA. Simply put they are comprised of Elliot Wright(Emcee), Jamie Schnetzler(Guitar), Cosmo Stevens(Bass), and Dan Wells(Drums). Once they get on stage however, no one stays put and nothing stays simple for long. The band blends the live instrumentation and DIY energy of an old school punk show with the clever samples and passionate connection of an intimate Hip-Hop set. Whether you like to think, dance, or just watch, this spectacle leaves the night open for your interpretation. Blending Hip-Hop production and ethics with the high energy of an amped-up rock show, the group turns any venue into an engaging and intelligent party.
