Bands That Rock

HI-USA Golden Gate Council is proud to sponsor Bands That Rock, a series of shows at 330 Ritch in San Francisco, featuring the Bay Area’s hottest emerging bands.

Hostelling International members get in free!

On October 31, celebrate Halloween with The Downfalls, Blood on the Tracks, The Feeders, and Drowsy Holler.

About The Downfalls
The Downfalls are a San Francisco indie-rock trio that wraps the sweat-dripping riffage of post-punk powerpop around a creamy melodic center, all glazed over with a thick swarm-of-angry-bees-in-your-face fuzz bass and tom-tom fury. Described as somewhere between "Weezer getting its ass kicked on the playground" and "the-not-so-Dandy Warhols," the band has been honored as a featured artist on MP3.com and written up in the New Music Report from IndyStrands.com.

About The Feeders
Formed in early 2005 in San Francisco, The Feeders released their debut EP "Western Idol" in August, getting airplay on the Bay Area's premier rock station, 107.7 The Bone. The band combines elements of '60s pop, '70s rock, '90s grunge, and contemporary metal to form a unique sound that is fresh and infectious. Whether you're yearning for intricate beats generated by a rhythm section that turns on a dime, a classic rock groove to sing along with, or just an entertaining good time, The Feeders gotcha covered.

Bands That Rock is presented by Ripstar–uniting artists and audiences thru music. Bands and visual artists send submissions to 806 Moultrie Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.
