AKES (formerly know as The Honey Toads)\nConsisting of an audio engineer, an author, a videographer, and a luthier, the four members of Bay Area ensemble Akes take their music into their own hands; Nick Cafiero (electric ukulele/vocals), Joe DeMars (bass), Jack Hogan (guitar), and Dominic Bergamini (drums)—handle nearly every aspect of their creative lives in house. They are dedicated students of their craft from the gear they play to the music that influences them.\nThat mindset is a fitting accompaniment to their heady sound. Taking inspiration from the post-punk scenes in the U.K. and U.S. where dozens of bands allowed themselves the freedom to mash up instrumentation and musical textures, Akes winds in the sounds of synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines into already finely honed material cut from pop/rock cloth. These sounds are the beginnings of a new creative regime for a band that has already been wowing audiences in and around their Bay Area scene.\nLOVE JERKS\nLove Jerks is a San Francisco duo who make future-sound New Wave anthems and dream-pop ballads that leave you no choice but to dance, or swoon, or both. The offspring of two longtime lead singers—Bryan & Rebecca.\nFLEETING TRANCE\nThe creation of bay-area songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Manasseh (Ma’NASA) Bernal, Fleeting Trance is a project defying classification, category, and genre. It is instead a musical collage of approaches, influences, and instrumentation varying from song to song. The inclusion of multi-faceted musicians, Craig Koozer (bass), Daren Wilkerson (drums), Scott Robertson (guitar), John Howard (pedal/lap steel), and Mike Chase (keys) serve to further compliment Bernal, resulting in vastly unique and sensual soundscapes demonstrating widespread influences.\n8PM $8 21+\nwheelchair accessible
