This event is all ages
For more than a decade pianist/sound- sculptor/songwriter Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive resume of composition and collaboration. His studio albums have set forth a vision for music that connects the dots between Explosions In The Sky and Tortoise on one side, Brian Eno and Brad Mehldau on the other. In the live setting, his performances reverberate with pulsating dance rock energy, which has led to numerous high profile appearances, ranging from Carnegie Hall to Celebrate Brooklyn, Newport Jazz to Bonnaroo. Benevento's been invited to open for The Books, Ben Folds and Rubblebucket, while headlining shows from coast to coast.
The Novelists (with Megan Slankard)
Megan Slankard will bring her project The Novelists from Reno, NV to San Francisco to play in support of Bread & Roses
Reno-based lyrical rock band The Novelists formed in July 2011 when four singer-songwriter friends came together to share the benefits of writing and performing as an ensemble. Since the group's inception, The Novelists have toured extensively throughout the United States and released the band's debut album, Backstory. Backstory infuses four-part harmonies into a backdrop of "pop folk" highlighted by collaborative artistry, creative melodies and songwriting filled with imaginative storytelling.
