This event is all ages
One of the best new bands to come out of the musically rich San Francisco Bay Area, Finish Ticket managed to sell out every show, successfully release a debut album, land a national automobile ad and tour virtually the entire USA & Canada, and that was before landing a worldwide deal with Atlantic Records.
Brought together by blood, burritos, and a shared musical vision, Finish Ticket is a band of brothers. Started by twins Brendan and Michael Hoye and their childhood friend Alex DiDonato, they quickly rose to the top of the San Francisco local music scene - all while still in high school. In 2012, through a long search for committed, like-minded musicians to fill out the lineup, they discovered the next level of FT kinship through brothers Gabe and Nick Stein.
With a sound described by many as the perfect mix between heartfelt indie rock & roll and catchy pop melodies, and with a captivating, energetic live show, Finish Ticket is on their way to dominate the airwaves and festivals this year.
"The perfect balance between melodic hooks, blues-tinged guitar riffs, and vocal parts... with such a melting pot of genres at play in their work, it’s safe to say they bring a little something for everyone” - PureVolume
"Finish Ticket’s ‘Doctor’ boasts an enormous cinematic chorus that evokes feelings of nostalgia and timelessness, a la ‘Johnny B. Goode,’ or something by the Four Seasons" --Diffuser.fm
"Lush musical landscape...killer melodies and harmonies" --Pure Grain Audio
"Finish Ticket offers a sound that is broad and touches on everything in between the rock and pop realms." –BuzzBandsLA
“Catch these guys before they blow up!” --Guerrilla Candy
French Cassettes are a four-piece indie pop band whose first release, Summer Darling, is not only easy on the ears but also serves as a clear statement of their upbeat intentions. In the few years that French Cassettes have been together, they have made a significant impact on both the local and national scene.
