This event is all ages
Picture Atlantic is an indie alternative band with an explosive sound and an openhearted approach to songcraft. With hints of MUSE, Neon Trees and Jeff Buckley, their youthful exuberance is apparent on every track.
Vocalist and guitarist Nikolaus Bartunek is a true standout, leading the way with his striking vocal style and erratic, supercharged performances. Bassist Ryan Blair, keyboardist Brian Graves and drummer Daniel Martinez provide the backbone and creative counterpoint to Nik’s haunting melodies.
Since it’s inception the band has cultivated a passionate and devoted local fanbase, becoming a staple of the Bay Area music scene and a regular on Live 105’s Soundcheck. They have performed alongside Coldplay, STYX, Say Anything, Eisley, Dan Black, Moneen, and Ozma among others, and were recently named one of the Top 100 Best Unsigned Bands by AbsolutePunk.net.
Picture Atlantic’s newest release, Digital Tension, is proof of the groups ability to carve their own unique sound. The Owl Mag calls the record “an exquisite mix of thrilling boppy synth highs and dark, heavy bass lows”. The band is currently touring and plans to release a video to their single ‘Twist’ early next year.
Finish Ticket is an alternative/indie pop band from the Bay Area. "They released their debut EP, Life Underwater, in September of 2009. The band has been receiving radio play since December and was recently named one of the top 10 local bands to watch out for in 2010 by Aaron Axelson who hosts Live 105's Radio Soundcheck. Finish Ticket was also showcased in late 2009 as one of the top five bands of the present San Francisco music scene." --East Bay Express
