About New Monsoon:
San Francisco rock quintet New Monsoon is the collaborative vehicle for the vocal and instrumental prowess of founding members Bo Carper (acoustic guitar and banjo), Jeff Miller (electric guitar) and Phil Ferlino (keys). Now well into its second decade of national touring, the band also features the muscular rhythm section of Marshall Harrell (electric bass) and Michael Pinkham (drums).
New Monsoon’s exhilarating blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation shines in an irresistible blend of sophisticated song craft, inventive musical exploration and down home rock-n-roll. “They have a collective power that comes off as a real unified force on stage. It’s not just a band, you know? It’s something transcendental.” - Michael Shrieve (original drummer, Santana)
About this Old Earthquake:
West of west, where the west never ends. This is the territory occupied by This Old Earthquake, an indie folk band based in Bolinas, California, an eccentric small town on the coast of Marin County just north of San Francisco. Described as “West Marinicana” and “sophisticated back porch music”, influences range from roots artists like Gillian Welch and The Band to indie pop artists like Bon Iver and Iron and Wine. The sound is intimate and sparse, a pick against a string, a breath anticipates a lyric. Steve Trivelpiece (guitars, vocals) Ethan Okamura (guitars, vocals) Taylor Cutcomb (bass) Michael Pinkham (drums)
